Simply Red fans have a lot to look forward to this summer, as the iconic UK band releases their highly anticipated brand new studio album Time. To celebrate the launch of the album, Simply Red has announced a special one-off launch show at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on June 5th – their most intimate London show since playing the same venue back in 2005.
With only one UK performance scheduled for the year, fans will want to act fast to secure their spot at this exclusive event. Pre-sale tickets will be available from May 2nd at 10:00am, but fans who pre-order Time via Simply Red’s website from April 10th will get first access to tickets.
“We’re very happy to be performing our album launch show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire,” said Mick Hucknall. “It’s been 18 years since we’ve played at this iconic venue, and we look forward to performing classics as well as new album material in a very special and intimate environment.”
Time marks Simply Red’s first studio album in four years, following the release of the critically acclaimed Blue Eyed Soul. The album, set to be released on May 26th by Warner Music, features 12 heartfelt tracks that showcase the band’s unerring ear for songs that move the emotion and imagination. The first single off the album, Better With You, is already generating buzz among fans and critics alike.
With a career spanning over three decades and 12 studio albums (five of them Number Ones), Simply Red has sold over 60 million albums worldwide and has been recognized with numerous awards, including consecutive Brit Awards for Best British Group in 1992 and 1993. The band’s legacy continues with their upcoming European Summer shows, where they will perform all of their Greatest Hits and solidify their reputation as one of the greatest live acts of today.
