There is something to be said about an older generation of artists who exceed performance expectations. Jim Kerr, 59, has continuously proved you’re never too old to rock and roll as well as the rest of the band, while they tour their way through the US.
Since the late 70s, Simple Minds has delivered over 19 discographies including a new release this year “Walk Between Worlds”, which they showcased throughout their set. The band, was although, catapulted into stardom with their “The Breakfast Club” hit, “Don’t You Forget About Me”. Kerr almost turned down the song, as he didn’t want to perform a song not written by him. Eventually, the former bandmates convinced Kerr to take on the tune, and recorded it within 3 hours. The hit’s release had instantly helped the band break into the American Market and kept them on a pedestal for years to come.
We made out way to their November 2nd show at The Moody Theater in Austin, Tx, where the band opened up the night with one of their newer tunes “The Signal and The Noise”. Kerr made his way out with a burst of energy and immediately kicked right into gear. As the night went on, Kerr strutted back and fourth across the stage and never lost a sense of enthusiasm. They performed all their hits from “Promised You A Miracle” as well as “Alive and Kicking” spread across two unique sets. The mixed crowd of baby-boomers and millennials, danced along and soared with energy throughout the evening before ending.
If you’re looking for just the right touch of nostalgia and passion be sure to catch Simple Minds as they continue their tour across North America.
