THUMBS UP!
Although I cannot justify why, I am somehow naturally superstitious. 13 of course is often referred to as the unlucky number and for that reason I was a mite anxious about last night's show in Rome - it being our 13th gig of the tour.
Thankfully there was seemingly nothing negative about last night's show, some reviews even calling it our best ever show in the capital city.
We are...

ITALY: A DAY FREE

After a splendid show in ROME, including one of the most generous audiences we have experienced so far. Today is free - to rest and recuperate.

We are very happy about that too. Less so for ourselves, more so for our travelling crew, who as usual are putting in great mental and physical effort throughout this tour. We appreciate them immensely for doing so.

Although fair...

ROME TONIGHT: Thanks to all for a special night in Ancona - we really enjoyed our time there!

So sorry that I forgot to introduce drummer/percussionist Cherisse Osei (photo) I am sure you will agree that she played truly great!

Today we will finally get to Rome...and as always we can't wait to play for you.

I can sense it is going to be another wonderful night - on this Acoustic Live...

ANCONA : TEATRO DELLE MUSE - TONIGHT: Great to finally begin our series of Italian concerts last night in Torino. We then travelled through the night to the port city of Ancona, arriving to early morning blue skies and very nice views of the equally blue Adriatic sea. Looking forward to tonight's show. Before - will go out for a walk with Charlie, good to have a bit of a look around.
No doubt...

SIMPLE MINDS ACOUSTIC LIVE : ITALY
After a drive through the snowy mountains we arrived in sunny Torino. As you can see both "The Double G's" i.e. Ged Grimes (bass) and Gordy Goudie (guitar) already look very relaxed + happy to be here. In fact we are all happy to be here - ITALY is always a highlight of any touring schedule.

Looking forward very much to playing Turin (tomorrow) followed by...

SIMPLE MINDS ACOUSTIC LIVE : PRINCE - THE CROSS

I got more than a little sentimental yesterday while talking to our friend/promoter Andy Bechir backstage in Luzern.

So taken by the KKL - a wonderful classical venue that sits on the lake front - I was asking about previous shows that he had seen there? Not too many it seems. In any case, in the middle of our conversation, and suddenly with a...

ANYONE FOR TENNIS?

Back in the day we had John McEnroe declaring his enthusiasm for Simple Minds. Also had Boris Beckker and Steffi Graff turn up at our gigs. Now delighted to know that Mr Djokovic also "loosens up" to Minds tunes.

SIMPLE MINDS ACOUSTIC LIVE - LUZERN, SWITZERLAND, TONIGHT:

EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY: So what is the story here with our inspired bassist, Ged Grimes?

Could it be that he has just remembered that he left the bath running in his hotel room an hour earlier?

I've done that before!

Or maybe he is desperately dealing with his frustration as "the lead singer" screws up once again?

I'd say...

ALL ABOARD THE SIMPLE MINDS ACOUSTIC LIVE: Next stop LUXEMBOURG - Tonight!

After 7 memorable shows in Germany and 1 in Denmark, we now pull out of Baden-Baden and gradually make our way to Italy via Luxembourg (tonight) and Lucerne, Switzerland, tomorrow night.

These first 8 shows made us feel that we were off to a great start, coming face to face with very encouraging audiences as well as...

SIMPLE MINDS ACOUSTIC LIVE : BADEN-BADEN : TONIGHT.

Easter Sunday got to off to a great start on arrival at our hotel in this quaint spa town. We are usually spoiled, but the room I had been allocated is particularly stunning, breathtaking in fact. So good, and big enough, that it took me a few minutes to take it it all in. The thrill of it all lasted up until I drew back the curtains, only...

Cherisse Osei

Simple Minds has forever been in motion, with virtually nothing about what we do remaining fixed.

The exception being the relationship that both Charlie and I have with each other, and our shared determination to see that our band has continued to grow creatively whether out there on a live stage, or within the hub of rehearsal and recording studios.

Hopefully we mostly...

DEATH BY CHOCOLATE (EGGS)

Easter Sunday and we have one of those rare things.....a day off from work!
Luckily we will spend the day in Baden Baden, (playing there tomorrow night) a beautiful little spa town that lies in a valley of the Northern Black Forest in southwestern Germany.

It was the Romans (of course) who first settled there, going all the way back to the Emperor Hadrian, already...

COPENHAGEN: Thanks to everybody in Hamburg for a wonderful night in the beautiful Laeiszhalle!

Now to Copenhagen where we will see you later tonight!

Denmark has always been generous to Simple Minds, particularly recalling our first ever visit back in 1979 and so many times since.
But our "acoustic show" is something different, and truly a reward to see the reaction to the music that these...

As in the pic, we will be on the front foot tonight while putting out as much energy and effort for Hamburg. The day off in Berlin prior to the Berlin show definitely revitalised all of us, and I personally felt better on stage last night as a result. Thanks to all who welcomed us in Berlin, making us feel so good. Thanks to all who are coming to see us in...
