Simple Minds have officially confirmed their return to Irish shores! Simple Minds have announced that they wil perform a never before played setlist dedicated solely to their highly acclaimed & hugely influential early albums live at The Olympia Theatre in Dublin on Sunday the 4th of March 2012.

This landmark show which takes place at The Olympia Theatre in Dublin, lasting over two and half hours, will be part of a 16-date Simple Minds European Tour.

Simple Minds will exclusively play five songs from each of their first five albums – Life In A Day, Real To Real Cacophony, Empires and Dance, Sons and Fascination/Sister Feelings Calling and New Gold Dream (81, 82, 83, 84) which celebrates its 30th anniversary next year – which were released in a prolific period from 1979 to 1982. These five albums have had a massive cultural impact from the time of their release during the birth of the new wave electro scene in the late 1970s, through the dance revolution of the ‘80s and ‘90s, to the music of the Manic Street Preachers and the recent sound of The Horrors’ Skying album, making them five of the most vital albums of the post-punk period and the last 35 years.

“This is the set that so many who appreciate Simple Minds have been begging us to play and finally this is that one-off chance to see it.” Jim Kerr.

To coincide with 5×5 Live, on 13th February 2011, EMI Music will release the box set Simple Minds X5. The box will feature all five of the albums over six discs – with Sons and Fascination and Sister Feelings Calling as separate discs in a gatefold sleeve – as well as bonus material on each disc including rare and previously unavailable CD, b-sides and remixes.
