Following the success of their sold out UK tour this December, Scottish rock legends, Simple Minds have announced a very special out-door show at Edinburgh Castle on 18th July 2009.

The 30 Years Live show celebrates the band’s longevity in the business as well as marking Jim Kerr s 50th Birthday; and will be the band s first Scottish date to be filmed for a DVD release.

Simple Minds frontman, Jim Kerr says “To play at Edinburgh Castle is more than a dream come true, and particularly since we have been looking for a sensational backdrop in which to film and record this tour where we play our landmark album New Gold Dream in it’s entirety. The concert next July is bound to be among the highlights of 30th year anniversary and I am sure that many of our legions of fans will be traveling from all over the world to be with us on this very proud occasion.
