Mick Hucknall is reviving his pop group Simply Red for a world tour.

The Fairground hitmakers retired from the music industry in 2010 at the end of a farewell tour, but they have now announced they are regrouping in 2015 to mark the band's 30th anniversary.

Simply Red will perform a series of shows across the globe as part of the Big Love Tour, which kicks off in Denmark in October, 2015 and concludes in London on 18 December (15).

A statement posted on the group's website reads, "2015 marks the 30th Anniversary of Simply Red and what bet­ter way to cel­eb­rate than to get the band back on the road!"

Hucknall adds in a note, "Am happy to celebrate 30 years in music. We hope you're going to enjoy the shows as much as we will. See you there!"

The band formed in 1985 and went on to sell millions of albums over the course of its career.
