GRANDSLAM 2018 – Simple Minds, The Pretenders and KT Tunstall

Global icons Simple Minds and The Pretenders continue to enjoy outstanding musical journeys and phenomenal worldwide success. They now come together on the same stage for the first time since Live Aid to present a unique opportunity to see both bands as they tour throughout the UK in 2018.

Celebrating new albums, Simple Minds and The Pretenders will perform their classic hits that have made them such a distinctive part of our musical heritage, as well as new material, at outdoor venues all over the UK in 2018.

Add to this ground breaking and exclusive tour, a very special guest, KT Tunstall is confirmed to join the tour. Since taking time out and unleashing her new invigorated album in 2017, KT was searching for the next chapter in her musical career. Bringing her unique style and warmth to a legion of loyal fans, as she enchants and engages with every song.

A sensational line up of three unique artists making GRANDSLAM 2018 THE ticket of the year!

Simple Minds

One of the most successful and influential British bands ever, Simple Minds have been creating their extraordinary, inventive, adventurous, and highly influential soundscape for almost 40 years. They have achieved six no.1 albums in the UK, as well as hitting the top spot in countless other territories including Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Australia and New Zealand. Since forming in Glasgow in the late 1970’s and named after a lyric from David Bowie's Jean Genie, the band have sold more than 70 million records worldwide and ‘Walk Between Worlds’ is their 17th album of new material.
On GRANDSLAM 2018, audiences will have the opportunity to see and hear Simple Minds revisit the many chapters of their storied career, taking in classic songs like Don't You (Forget About Me) and Alive & Kicking, Promised You A Miracle and Glittering Prize, Waterfront and Sanctify Yourself, and bringing things right up.

The Pretenders

The Pretenders latest album ‘Alone’ has been recently released to huge acclaim and tracks from the album will be performed on the tour, together with a catalogue of hits that have shaped the charts and influenced so many.
Reviews of ‘Alone’, the 10th and latest album to be released by The Pretenders and produced by Dan Auerbach have been phenomenal. A wonderfully exciting album, packing a punch as heavy as any of the many hits that were born out of The Pretenders stable over the years. Who can deny Stop your Sobbing, Brass In Pocket, Talk of the Town, I Go To Sleep, Back on the Chain Gang, 2000 Miles and I’ll Stand By You have not defined song writing and been the soundtrack to so many moments. A combination of new tracks and classic hits will ensure that when The Pretenders take to the stage, this will undoubtedly be one of the most exciting performances of the summer.
Formed in Hereford in 1978 The Pretenders line-up is Chrissie Hynde, Martin Chambers, Nick Wilkinson, James Walbourne and Carwyn Ellis.
