A memorable concert to celebrate 40 years of the career of the eclectic pioneers of music, who return to the Auditorium Parco della Musica as part of the Rome Summer Fest with their 40 Years of Hits Tour.
Simple Minds take their name from a verse from David Bowie's The Jean Genie. They immediately stand out for their art-rock style inspired by the chameleonic English singer and Donna Summer's electronic dance, becoming one of the greatest bands of their generation and achieving an unstoppable success.
From Life In A Day, 1979 song and debut album, to New Gold Dream, Speed Your Love To Me, Glittering Prize, Don't You (Forget About Me), Alive and Kicking, Let There Be the Love, the band founded and led by historical members Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill in the late ‘70s has sold more than sixty million records, with five number one albums in the UK. The power of their sound and energy are collected in the album 40: The Best Of - 1979-2019, a journey through their memorable and extraordinary career.
A thousand incarnations but a unique identity: these are the hallmarks of a group with boundless inspiration, a symbol of entire generations that brings the history of music to the stage.
