In 2010 Simply Red performed an iconic show at London’s O2 Arena. In November this show will be made available to listen to again on BBC Radio 2 as part of Radio 2 In Concert 50 — a celebration of 50 years of live music at the station. The performance will be available to listen to on BBC Sounds from November 1st for 30 days, and on BBC Radio 2 on November 8th.
Saturday 24th October will be the 25th anniversary of Simply Red’s LIFE album being released. Life included Simply Red’s number 1 single Fairground and to celebrate the occasion the video has been upgraded to HD!
