Simple Minds Edinburgh

cinch Presents Edinburgh Summer Sessions have announced a special second show with Simple Minds to take place on Saturday 13 August at Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh, where all profits will go to UNICEF for children in Ukraine.

As one of Scotland’s biggest bands and musical exports, Simple Minds will now play two shows under the backdrop of Edinburgh Castle, on 12 and 13 August 2022.

This second show on 13 August will not only be a special concert to raise money for UNICEF, but Simple Minds will also play the whole of their New Gold Dream (81–82–83–84) album as well as songs such as Don’t You (Forget About Me) and Waterfront.

Speaking of the new show, the band said: “We can think of no better way to bring our upcoming UK/European Tour to a climax than performing not one, but now two shows at Princess Street Gardens, Edinburgh. Maximising on that rare opportunity, we aim to make the additional show even more special for our fans by playing in full a one-off performance on Saturday 13 August of our career landmark New Gold Dream (81–82–83–84) plus our greatest hits.”

Tickets for this special show go on sale from 9am on Friday 25 March.
