Following their recent UK tour, legendary live act Simple Minds will bring their famed show to Sussex to perform a mix of greatest hits and songs from across their illustrious career, including tracks from their latest album 'Big Music'.

As their only outdoor performance in the UK this summer, Boomerang offers fans and music lovers alike the chance to catch this prolific band on the open stage in the unique surroundings of Hickstead's International Arena.

“When we started Simple Minds, our objective was to be considered as one of the great live bands. A band that had the desire to go all around the world – playing everywhere and anywhere,” says frontman, Jim Kerr. “That challenge is ongoing and we relish touring all over the UK.”

As one of Britain's most successful bands, Simple Minds have provided the soundtrack to people's lives for the last 35 years with tracks such as Promised You A Miracle, Don't You (Forget About Me), Alive & Kicking, Waterfront and many more. Their sound has influenced acts as diverse as the Manic Street Preachers, Primal Scream, Moby and The Horrors and they have provided memorable movie moments for numerous, much loved and iconic films including The Breakfast Club, Elizabethtown and most recently, Pitch Perfect.

Simple Minds join previously announced Boomerang Sunday night headliners, Jessie J and The Vamps on a weekend bill that will close the summer in style.

In addition to watching some of the world’s most renowned and critically acclaimed artists there will also be an opportunity to soak up the atmosphere at gourmet pop-up restaurants, indulge in delicious street food and sample alternative entertainment away from the main stage.

Further line up details for both the Saturday and Sunday will be announced over the coming weeks and with something for everyone, we guarantee you won't be disappointed, in fact, you'll keep coming back for more!
