Simple Minds Won't Forget About Deacon Blue

The following story was part of the Day in Rock Report for 5/15/08 - (PR) To add further excitement to Simple Minds' highly anticipated 30th Anniversary tour, the band has just confirmed 'Deacon Blue' as very special guests. Deacon Blue will perform all concerts with the exception of the Glasgow SECC on 4th December. Simple Minds will perform 'New Gold Dream' in its entirety for the very first time.

With six million album sales under their belt, Deacon Blue's first album 'Raintown' set the precedent, spending 77 weeks in the album chart, and with five top 5 UK albums (of which 2 were number 1) under their belts they have chalked up an impressive 4 years in the British album charts.

Their seventeen top 40 singles resided in the chart for more than 2 years. June 9th sees the band release their new DVD "Live", filmed during their sell-out 2007 European tour and featuring their biggest hits including Dignity, Real Gone Kid, Wages Day and Chocolate Girl.
