25th Anniversary Streaming

Thursday, June 10th, 2021

For one night only, Simply Red will present a live stream of their legendary per­form­ance at Old Traf­ford Foot­ball Sta­di­um. 25 years after the event, you can watch the show in fully remastered high-qual­ity foot­age. Tick­ets go on sale tomor­row at 10am BST and will be avail­able HERE
Manchester United man­ager at the time, Sir Alex Fer­guson, said on the night: “There’s only one man who could have brought more people to Old Traf­ford than Manchester United”
And so it was, in June 1996, sixty thou­sand fans gathered on the pitch at Old Traf­ford Sta­di­um in Manchester to watch Simply Red in a cel­eb­rat­ory con­cert for the final match of the UEFA Euro ’96 cham­pi­on­ship. With an intro­duc­tion from Sir Alex, a fire­work finale and an epic Simply Red show fea­tur­ing all the hits, this was truly a once-in-a-life­time event. Now you have the chance to watch the show from the com­fort of your sofa in a one-off livestream event. You won’t want to miss this one!
Tick­et includes 24 hour video-on-demand start­ing from advert­ised time.

Earth In A Lonely Space

Tuesday, May 18th, 2021

Simply Red return with brand-new song ‘Earth In A Lonely Space’. Writ­ten by Mick Huck­nall and pro­duced by Andy Wright with engineering/mixing by Gav­in Gold­berg at Home Stu­di­os and South­W­est Stu­di­os, ‘Earth In A Lonely Space’ takes us back to the melod­ic song­writ­ing of the 60s with its layered instru­ment­a­tion and eth­er­e­al sound. The accom­pa­ny­ing video, dir­ec­ted and anim­ated by the team at Cine1080, takes us on a lonely, but stun­ning jour­ney through space.

The earth itself is in a lonely place,” Mick said of the track. “It’s the job of any artist to try and cap­ture the moment and right now, a lot of people are isol­ated and alone.”

You can listen to the song, down­load it or stream it HERE
