Live Performance On 4 LP Set!

LIVE IN THE CITY OF ANGELS captures Simple Minds at the height of their live powers on their biggest ever North American tour. Following the huge acclaim of 2018's Walk Between Worlds album, in the fall of 2018 Simple Minds travelled to North America to undertake their first coast to coast tour in over two decades. Taking in 31 cities, both critics and fans unanimously agreed that it was the bands most successful US tour to date.

Simple Minds were greeted by an excitement stateside they'd not experienced since their imperial phase in the mid-1980s. Nowhere was this passion captured better than on a recording of their performance at the Orpheum Theatre, Los Angeles on October 24, 2018. 24 of the tracks were performed that night. "Glittering Prize" was recorded at The Fillmore, Miami Beach on November 8, 2018, and the bonus tracks were recorded at various sound checks and rehearsals.

The resulting album, LIVE IN THE CITY OF ANGELS, is a 40-song collection, spanning one of the most diverse catalogues of, to date, a 40 year career. Simple Minds' live prowess, incredible musicianship, led by the band's exceptional and iconic guitarist Charlie Burchill, and the soulfulness of frontman Jim Kerr's voice – which has matured into a powerful instrument in its own right – delivers a set that proves why Simple Minds are still a vital and relevant band.

In a career spanning set it features songs from the band's Empires And Dance album through to 2018's Walk Between Worlds. Beginning with that album's "The Signal And The Noise", the first five songs alone are a reminder as to why Simple Minds are one of the greatest bands of their generation.

Elsewhere the album includes gems from their classic New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84) album, Sons And Fascination, Sparkle In The Rain, 1985's colossus "Don't You Forget About Me", as well as "Alive And Kicking" and "Sanctify Yourself" from that year's UK no.1 and US Top 10 album Once Upon A Time, right up to 2015's Big Music (which MOJO magazine declared "their best album in 30 years") and last year's Walk Between Worlds (a UK Top 5 album).

Referencing their first live album, 1987's Live In The City Of Light, this new live collection once again finds Simple Minds 30 years later scaling the heights of those dizzy days, as each new generation discovers the phenomenal live power of the band. LIVE IN THE CITY OF ANGELS is a must-have collection for any self-respecting Simple Minds fan and a perfect reminder of the band's enduring talent and live appeal.

Please note: The hype sticker on the shrink wrap says "Limited Edition Book" but this refers to the book-style packaging of the set. There is no actual book or booklet included.
