Simply Red is performing at the Lincolnshire Showground next Summer! 22 Nov

Few bands have enjoyed the success and longevity of Simply Red. With over 60 million albums sold worldwide, 5 x UK #1 hit albums and over a billion views on YouTube, Simply Red remain one of the UK’s most successful bands. Their most recent album ‘Blue Eyed Soul’ was released in November 2019 and crashed into the UK charts at #6, proving Simply Red to be as relevant as ever.

Mick Hucknall formed Simply Red in 1985 in Manchester and enjoyed immediate success with first single ‘Money’s Too Tight To Mention’ and the BRIT Award-nominated album ‘Picture Book’ (the first of 13 nominations, and 3 BRIT Award wins). This was followed by a decade of superstardom and global hits. Simply Red were nominated for 3 prestigious Grammy Awards and continue to consistently sell out tours across the globe.

Their live show is renowned for its high quality with Mick Hucknall long-established as one of the great vocalists of contemporary music. His raw honey and whiskey tone, and ability to shift from tender sensuality to full on roaring power in a heartbeat, is guaranteed to bring the biggest of crowds together to create an unmissable atmosphere.

Talking about the live shows lined up for summer and announced today, Mick Hucknall said, “I’ve spent most of my life going out and singing for people, and it has felt strange not to have that for such a long time. It’s wonderfully inspiriting that people can go and see bands again now, and I can’t wait to get back on stage.”

Music fans will be in for a real treat as Lisa Stansfield also takes to the stage as part of these huge live music events. After being introduced to Coldcut in 1989, her guest vocals helped ‘People Hold On’ storm the charts and led to a solo career which saw the Rochdale star conquer the world with her accessible soulful dance music. She went on to win 3 BRIT Awards, 2 Grammy nominations, and enjoy a string of hits, including worldwide #1 smash, ‘All Around The World’, on her way to selling over 20 million albums. A proven talent, Lisa Stansfield is sure to get the crowds up and dancing.

Simply Red fans will flock to the stage to hear one of the UK’s biggest bands perform a catalogue of unforgettable hits, including ‘Something Got Me Started’, ‘Stars’, ‘Fairground’ and the US #1 hits, ‘Holding Back The Years’, and ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now’. These shows will be a highlight in next summer’s live music calendar and will sell out fast. 

Tickets available from www.lphconcerts.co.uk from Friday 26th November 2021.
