Simple Minds To Hit Studio For First Time In 27 Years

Reunited rockers SIMPLE MINDS are set to record together for the first time in 27 years - as part of their 30th anniversary celebrations.
Founding members Brian MCGee, Derek Forbes and Mick MCNeil will join existing members Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill to play at Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday concert in London in June (08), and they hope their stage comeback will inspire them enough to record some new material.
And the band are looking to have the new songs ready for the start of their reunion tour of the U.K. later this year (08) - as a special treat for their dedicated fans.
The group's original line-up parted ways in 1991, leaving just Kerr and Burchill to continue recording under the name.
And frontman Kerr is excited about hitting the studio with the original line-up.
He says, "Of course I am excited with the prospect of working with the original line - up once more. I had always believed that the day would come when we would get the opportunity to do so.
"We have a lot to live up to, but we intend to have some fun attempting to do just that."
The Simple Minds tour kicks off in Manchester, England on 27 November (08).
