I’m sure it doesn’t seem the case to those who THINK they know me…I’m sure I seem the biggest blabber mouth on the face of the earth, but I CAN keep a bloody secret!
One that I was (somewhat accidentally, admittedly) entrusted with was the info there was going to be a live release from Simple Minds’ most recent tour of the U.S.
Today I received the latest issue of Classic Pop in the post and there’s a big old write up and interview with SM producer, Andy Wright. In amongst it, he talked about his working relationship with SM and within it was also the reveal of there being a live release of SM recorded during the resent U.S. tour. He says it’s going to be a 40 track thing…but that seems quite a lot. I’m not even sure 40 individual tracks made it on the setlist in America, did they? Perhaps some things played during soundcheck are being included? Who knows? We’ll see around Christmas time, I guess.
Exciting news nonetheless.
Lol. Cherisse sharing a pic on her Instagram account. Jim seems to have a new job as a pizza restaurant’s sandwich board man.
One would assume the need for strong, sturdy legs made him a shoo-in for the job.
An amazing set of photos has been posted by Casey Steinmiller on his website. Such a wonderful pictorial representation of the tour.

It very much looks like Jim suffers it too.
He looks in a contemplative mood in this picture by “steinmiller_productions”. Casey has taken some wonderfully reflective photos of mood and feeling on this tour. His photos really give life to a scene and conjure up an atmosphere.
This one of Jim is stunning in its simplicity and mood. I am in love with it! I’d really love a print of it. It would look amazing on the wall of the bedroom of my new home (whenever I get it and move in!).
I really hope Casey sells prints. I really, REALLY want this!
I could ogle photos ALL DAY…I really could (most days I do just that…at least for a bit of time anyway).
And, just to compound the fact this is a SIMPLE MINDS *cough* Jim Kerr *cough* blog…here are two photos of Jim from another wonderful set from Thursday’s Miami gig by 4Rio Photography, shared on the QRO Magazine website. Click HERE to view the full set. Thanks to Dino Rio for posting the link to SMO FB.
I love seeing all these lovely photos of the meet and greets the American fans have had. It’s been such an amazing tour for band and fans alike.
Would have loved to have gone to Vancouver for a bithday gig…but well, maybe next year there’ll be a birthday gig opportunity? Who knows what the future holds?
Anyway, enjoy the pics. Thanks to “jmachonis” for sharing such wonderful pics.

Instagram really is becoming the place to be for visual splendour. Between Cherisse and Sarah’s video clips and fans sharing some truly amazing photos, as well as pro photographers too….there is a growing treasure trove of Simple Minds visuals to enjoy there.
Here is but one example. Some truly cracking photos shared by account “imageberne” of SM at Thursday night’s Miami gig at the Fillmore.
