Almost one year ago to the day was, not only my last Simple Minds concert to date, but the last concertI I went to full stop.
I had 13 other Simple Minds gigs to come – Paris, Bordeaux, Leeds, Dublin, Glasgow, Blenheim Palace, Taormina, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Aberdeen – then off to the holy grail gigs in Melbourne, Sydney and Bimbadgen.
To have 13 to come couldn’t have ended up more unlucky.
Added to that all other gigs I had racked up, including Crowded House, Primal Scream, Jimmy Webb, John Grant, Warm Digits and probably others I have forgotten about. Plus ones I have added to the list since lockdown, including Scritti Politti and Field Music.
Happy One Year Of Covid Pandemic anniversary! Yay!
Here’s a Love Song for you (recorded by yours truly in Copenhagen last year)…
