Simple Minds with Special Guests OMD @ Villa Maria Winery

Saturday, December 12, 2020 December 12, 2020 Holiday Inn Auckland Airport

"Frontier Touring are delighted to welcome seminal Scottish band Simple Minds back to New Zealand in December 2020 as part of their 40 Years Of Hits Tour performing an exclusive a day on the green show at Villa Maria Winery on Saturday 12 December 2020, after two indoor shows at Christchurch’s Horncastle Arena on Wednesday 9 December 2020, and Wellington’s TSB Arena on Friday 11 December 2020. They’ll be joined by special guests Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD), who will be touring New Zealand for the first time in more than 30 years.

‘Kerr performs with the innate confidence of a frontman who knows he has a flotilla of showstoppers in reserve... The climax, inevitably, is the Atlantic-spanning hit ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’ but even after more than two hours, Simple Minds sound like they are just getting started: an impressively energised feat.’ - The Guardian"
