They recently released their 'Simple Minds Acoustic' album - a career-spanning collection re-told acoustically - and now '80s rock titans Simple Minds are taking it out on the road.

Jim Kerr and co. will visit both Dublin and Belfast next summer to play some of their biggest hits acoustically for the first time.

They'll take in Belfast's Waterfront Hall on June 6th (tickets from £44.50 including booking fee) and Dublin's Olympia Theatre on June 7th (tickets from €58.70 including booking fee).

Tickets for both dates are on sale this coming Monday, December 12th from usual outlets at 9am.
