    Dear Mick and band,

    In April 16th 2010 I was to my first Simply Red Tour… and the last one too. It would like to say that it was the most per­fect exper­i­ence of life that I already lived in all my life. I was born in April 28th 1987 and since I was a kid I always heard in my infancy musics of the Simply Red because my moth­er hears and loves. It said that when I to me small age, I always dance whenev­er “Some­thing Got Me Star­ted” start to play and that I sang “Stars” togeth­er with music when play, exactly without skill to sing. This was my best anti­cip­ated birth­day’s present. My heart would like deep it to thank the beau­ti­ful spec­tacle presen­ted in Recife in April 16th 2010 and this day will be recor­ded in my heart and my memory forever. When you come back to Brazil again, don’t leave to pass in Recife, I will be there sanc­tion­ing. I love you all!

  7. Marcia Santos-São Paulo-Brazil says:

    I’ve just read all the reviews above,for the very 1st time today.
    Since I got back home after trav­el­ing through the 5 States of my country,I’ve been so busy working&taking care of my family(’cause I’ve spent 10 days out of home)that I did­n’t have time to write a review right after each con­cert.
    Firstly, because I did­n’t want to take my laptop with me,didn’t want to use any pc in any of the hotels where I’ve stayed dur­ing this trip.
    It was “MY OWN TOUR”,a spe­cial moment in my life,and I’ve decided that I was just going to SEE THEM,follow THEIR TOUR and LIVE INTENSIVELY MY OWN TOUR​.No machines around.Just me,myself and real people​.Like it used to be in my earli­er times…
    After com­ing back,down to Earth and to real life,coming back HOME and to MY FAMILY(my everything),by May 02nd I wrote BH and Rio reviews.Then on May 18th,I wrote São Paulo’s.
    Hours ago,just wrote Brasília’s review.
    So, I gotta say sth to my RED friends who have writ­ten some of those reviews above mine.The usu­al ones,praising&praising…and some oth­ers express­ing sin­cerely­po­litely and legit­em­ately some kind of disappointment,frustration, they had at Recife’s con­cert. I guess that’s the reas­on why the artists’ sites need this space ‚to know exactly how they’re doing.IF people is get­ting pleased or not,so that they can improve somehow,a bit here,a bit there​.Like we ‚”not artists”,regular people try do do in our lives. We know we should listen not only to pos­it­ive com­ments . More import­ant than only get­ting some praise,we should learn how to listen to some neg­at­ive comments/opinions/“reviews”(whatever the words fit bet­ter) about ourselves.For sure,each one of you Red­dies know,I know,everybody else knows, that it’s NOT THAT EASY when sb does not like sth we’ve done or are doing,no mat­ter if pro­fes­sion­ally or per­son­ally speak­ing. It’s HUMAN NATURE,great Michael Jack­son used to sing it beau­ti­fullly…
    I do under­stand each one of the pre­vi­ous people’s reviews.Really do.Honestly, my Red friends.And some of the neg­at­ive aspects men­tioned refer­ring to Mick and guess Just one to the band(saying they were not like in the same vibe as they were in Rio’s present­a­tion or sth like that…)might have passed though my mind as well for a minute, before,during or after the con­certs. To be sincere,I don’t share the same opin­ion when one of my Red friends com­men­ted that on the bands performances/or vibes.I’m not criticizing,really AM not. Just as I like to be sin­cere in everything I say, what I mean is that “I,MYSELF”didn’t have this feeling/impression on the guys,in any of the 7 con­certs I’ve been to.But that’s the way I see,I saw,I felt, while in the concerts.Or maybe, I Love and admire them so much that I couldn’t be able to real­ize what someRed­dies have,in the audience.Absolutely possible.Of course it does not mean many oth­er red­dies could have thought that,and noth­ing wrong about it.
    I’d rather see myself as a music lover,and an admirer of Mick’s tal­ent and also of this great team he’s keep­ing with him for some time. I’ve been “a fan”,let’s use that to keep it easier,for just 5 years or so and I’ve been only to 7 SR CONCERTS.Of course, I’ve got my own opin­ion on each one of the concerts,my “com­par­is­ons” between this and that one…
    And I must say that “none of the 3 con­certs” I’ve been to in SP(2 last year and 1 last Apr20th)
    at the same place I’ve seen them per­form­ing before(and some oth­er bands/artists),NONE OF THEM WERE EXACTLY THE SAME in all present­a­tions. Could­n’t haven’t been. At all! And to add sth to this argu­ment of mine,NONE OF THE 7 SR CONCERTS I’ve seen were abso­lutely the same.ThanksGod! Because If each SR CONCERT were EXACTLY THE SAME, in that case,I’d have thought of “mech­an­ic­al” as an adjective,in these last 2 years.
    “SIMPLY” COULDN’T HAVE BEEN the same! Weath­er changes,things change,people change.
    This is as clear as water for me. My argu­ment is based on my belief that not SR, not Mick,not the band mem­bers, not myself, not any­one in the whole World,“STAYS THE SAME”,it’s already been said by someone,somewhere else or in a song maybe.And after hav­ing liv­ing for 46 years,I’ve got some certainties,my own ones,the ones I’ve learned,not from get­ting some praise or from hav­ing exper­i­enced good or happy moments in my life.
    All the mean­ing­ful and true con­clu­sions I’ve come to, up to now, all the hard stuff which is tat­tooed in my soul,all of them came from bad /sad moments,wrong pos­i­tions I took,silly things I did,moments of extreme suffering…And these lessons,I’ve really learned.Know them all by heart.
    I do believe we do not “get lessons”,we do not “improve”our spir­itu­al growth from happy moments.
    Happy moments are not meant to be les­sons. They are expec­ted to be “good memor­ies”. Just “good memor­ies” .Good scenes of a movie of our lives,we all have inside our minds.
    Sad to finally get to the con­clu­sion that :
    WE ARE NOT HAPPY ALL THE TIME, WE ARE NOT THE SAME ALL DAY LONG.
    We go from up to down moments many times dur­ing our lives.
    When I was a teenager,a young adult, young­er, I used to believe that TOTAL HAPPINESS-FULL HAPPINESS-ETERNAL HAPPINESS — STACTIC HAPPINESS-“PERFECT HAPPINESS” could be achieved. Could exist. And that belief of mine have made me suf­fer a lot while des­per­ately was look­ing for the “magic for­mule” of COMPLETE HAPPINESS.
    Not sure of pre­cisely (guess +- 16 years ago)when I real­ized that I COULDN’T BE HAPPY ALL DAY LONG,EVERY SINGLE DAY AND FOREVER.
    It took me too much time to under­stand and ACCEPT that what we have are moments of hap­pi­ness where every thing “seems” to be SIMPLY PERFECT !
    So, what I ‘d like to say sth in defense of Mick(my ALWAYS NUMBER 1) and the guys(MY NUMBER 1 BAND),but not against any of you my Red friends,please,that must be clear enough… I Just “FEEL” the need of some­how find­ing
    an “ alibi” ‚an explan­a­tion –whatever– that might work(for myself-it’s MY need) in defense of those people I’ve learned to love,admire and respect so much in these last 5 years.
    NOTHING /NOBODY IS SIMPLY PERFECT AND “SIMPLY THE SAME” ALL THE TIME. “PERFECTION” does not exist. Only IF-and only IF- WE “WANNA” SEE sth/sb as “PERFECT”.In that case, WE can CREATE “ PERFECTION” from our point of view,from the “deep desire of see­ing” sth/sb as PERFECT.
    This skill that some people achieve,after going through a pretty hard daily work, huge and con­stant effort in their every­day life, the skill of of “SEEING” PERFECTION when it does not really exist,is a spe­cial gift(in my opinion)that The Lord allows some to achieve.
    And just remem­ber­ing ourselves(myself,absolutely included) not even THE CREATOR,THE LORD HIMSELF, was “PERFECT”. And also, has not cre­ate ANY PERFECT thing or cretaure.Though He could have done so. But that was not HIS inten­tion.
    And this is why,THE LORD does not demand or expect us to be PERFECT .
    HE clearly asks us to change ourselves constantly,to get bet­ter and bet­ter as human beings.
    The Lord,HIMSELF does not want us to “BE THE SAME”/”TO STAY THE SAME” in our reg­u­lar daily PERFORMANCES. For the whole life.
    I REALLY would like to point out my Red friends, that I’m not against some of you while express­ing your sin­cere positions/opinions and comments,not at all. I do think every­one has got the right of express himself,freely.And do respect that.Please,do not get me wrong,I’m a REDDIE,just like you all. We are RED brothers,we share the same love,respect and admir­a­tion for our SIMPLY PERFECT BAND,SIMPLY RED! And just like you all, I had my “own secret com­plaints” kept in my mind after each concert,such as “what a pity,Mick didn’t sing YOU MAKE ME FELL BRAND NEW and since I play it every single day in my car while driving,I’d love have listened to it in the concert”.Yes,it came to my mind at some moe­ment. But I didn’t allow me to think of it as a “frus­tra­tion or dis­ap­point­ment feel­ing”.
    And I must con­fess you red­dies, I myself,had also sth ‚”a moment” that made me feel the way some of you declared above. A bit sad, I really can­not “find” the pre­cise word that could express what I felt.Still feel.Though “dis­ap­point­ment” is not what I really felt,I’m gonna use it…
    THE “dis­ap­point­ment” I had dur­ing this SR TOUR in Brazil,was not on the stages.
    Con­sequently not with the artist itself. But it does not matter,it’s not rel​ev​ant​.It was not stronger enough to neut­ral­ize or dimin­ish the good energy and the good vibes I was try­ing to pass,to give,to share. I can see and under­stand that some people can­not GET/RECEIVE true afection,true&pure love.I’ve got some close people I know and love, that have the same difficulty.That’s ok.
    At that moment,in Recife,“I” KEPT inside me my good energy ‚my good vibes, my sin­cere admir­a­tion and noble feelings.That’s what matters.I’m glad God has blessed me with this capa­city of show­ing true feel­ings and accept­ing in my heart&soul any kind of affec­tion demonstration,coming from anyone,artists or not artists.
    So,dear Red­dies ‚as fans,”WE ARE NOT ALONE” in our pos­sible dis­il­lu­sions with some Mick’s beha­vi­or or atti­tude or a bit cold per­form­ance or with one of the band mem­bers in special(or the group itself),in some con­cert. On the con­trary, “”WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER””.That’s what makes our RED fam­ily so spe­cial and so united.And the same hap­pens with many oth­ers fans of oth­er great bands…THAT’S THE POWER OF MUSIC!!
    Remem­ber­ing us all(again,myself included) that ARTISTS are con­sidered SPECIAL SOULS(like I see them) but still,out of the stages,they’re just exactly like us.Mere human beings.Persons who have good and bad days.Bills to be paid.Dentists’ appoint­ments. Taxes to be paid for the Government,never thaaaaaat fair. Spots,huuuge ones, exactly on that spe­cial day.A sud­denly hair rebel­lion installing itself while the per­son is sleep­ing and after wak­ing up the fol­low­ing morning,artists or not,no enough time or no deal that could be done,to stop the rebel­lion before the concert,or in our case,the job or a party.
    Let’s keep our RED HEARTS full of love and only good feel­ings.
    Para­phras­ing Obama :YES, WE REDDIES CAN!
    ‘Cause we know,problems do exist. And every­body has got some.Or lots of.
    ARTISTS,are persons,before get­ting into the stages,so let’s see them,the way we see every­one else,the way we see us,the way we see any oth­er professionals:doctors,teachers,lawyers…
    So,it’s pos­sible that some day, some of them could not be able to hide their deep pain,sorrow,suffering, behind the artist’s face&performance on stage.Not always pos­sible to hide the dif­fi­culties they might be going though in that moment,even try­ing hard to be professionals,some can fail,somehow,some day. The same way we try hard in our pro­fes­sions and who knows,maybe some day,somehow we also can­not be able to hide our deep feel­ings behind the nutritionist,the enginner,the account­ant…
    MICK has problems,usual ones ‚the same we do. Of course he does not have to worry about his super­mar­ket bills to be paid at the end of the month,like I do​.Like most people do.And surely does not have to buy a cheap Brazili­an wine instead of a good French ‚Ger­man or,let’s say,an Itali­an one to have din­ner with his Gab­ri­ella… But I do have din­ner with my hus­band and kids every single day ‚not giv­ing a damn if the wine is good enough. He doesn’t.He can’t have this bless­ing. The bless­ing of get­ting home every day and find­ing his 2 beau­ti­ful ladies wait­ing for him with a huge smile on their faces and a tight hug show­ing him,he is HOME. Isn’t it a good reas­on to be some day not thaaaat happy on stage,thinking that after the con­cert all he’s got is to go back to his lonely 5‑stars suíte at that most soph­ist­ic­ated hotel in town???
    You see my Red friends,I could nev­er afford being with my hubby in a 5‑stars suíte,neither most of us red­dies and people in gen­er­al. But I do have my hubby every night to hold me till I fell asleep.
    Mick can afford being at those Hotels,but can’t have his Gab­ri­ela to hold and make her fall asleep in peace,as he surely would love to do. Not that easy,being a STAR. So guys,let’s give my RED a discount…Spending 25 years of his life ‚sleep­ing at hotels, might seem like HEAVEN for some who are not artists,but let’s think how hard must be to our Mick,not put­ting Romy into bed at night…To get a bit closer to how dif­fi­cult must be his life,we Just have to remem­ber his song ‚one of the most beau­ti­ful among so many he’s writ­ten : “HOME”.
    Kevin,our funny and talk­at­ive Kevin,has got to fix his car once in a while ‚like any of us,hasn’t he?And maybe that day,in that spe­cif­ic con­cert someone might have thought he was not thaaaat good-humoured as usual,he could be wor­ried about not hav­ing money that month to fix it.
    Ian,polite and gen­tle­man Ian, has got a wife and maybe in some con­cert he might have been entered into the stage after hav­ing just argued with his wife.We all do.I do.Why doesn’t he?Or a sick kid at home,miles away…
    Daveee…ohhh Daveee.Special soul.
    Lovely,cute,polite,respectful,an Eng­lish Lord…Sweet person,really a spe­cial soul.Even him,might have a prob­lem.
    Dave’s got to invest lots of money in his own business,and for sure,some day he might be on a stage under such a PRESSURE(zone) play­ing and think­ing at the same time “where” he’s going to get that money his busi­ness needs urgently…
    The nice and cute young­er ones,Kenji,Pete and Steve,have also got their own problems,what do we know about their per­son­al life? Or do young or single people do not have prob­lems like some people think about kids and teen­agers ??
    And what if Pete,that absur­dely lovely ‚Mr. “Always Smil­ing Guy”, has just broken up with someone he loves so much and the drums insists on not play­ing itself on its on?? Drums do not seem to be that cute to give Pete “a hand”.On the con­trary, sad or not,Pete ‘s got to give both hands to the drums…
    And Kenji, with his enchant­ing Ori­ent­al shy way of being,polite guy,what if he ‘s got a ter­rible migraine crisis for over a week(like those ones I have-lucky me play­ing the gui­tar is not my job) and has to be on stages for a sequence of 5 concerts,traveling from place to place and has to play his gui­tar feel­ing each single chord get­ting into his head like a knife?
    And If we do,why can’t amaz­ingly nice Steve,with that beau­ti­ful &loud voice, have a ter­rible back­ache and has got to stay up ‚car­ry­ing his bass and walk­ing around the stage feel­ing he’s in deep hell and not on a stage,with such a strong pain???
    Gotta have gone in their defense my dear Red friends…’cause I’ve had the priv­ilege of stay­ing at the same hotel with them all in Recife,meeting them as PERSONS,lovely and humble people,ignoring the fact that they are such tal­en­ted &blessed musi­cians…
    Jesus,when I think: “I was there right in front of Dave,talking to him for some minutes and that was the same guy who plays superbly that piano,that keyboard”.And also the oth­er guys…Amazing and unfor­get­able experience.I’m still on cloud nine,almost 2 months after that…
    Lú,Jo and I were first row in Recife, at the con­cert. We had a great time !!!!!!!
    For me, it was “”SIMPLY PERFECT”” !

    Ei Mick, nada haver aqueles ócu­los no show de recife… Quer­ia ver seus olhos e para onde estava olhando… Mas o show foi mara­vil­hoso, apesar de sen­tir falta de algu­mas musicas que gosto e você não can­tou. Espero que volte ao Nos­deste, de pref­er­en­cia a Recife, que fica mais prox­imo da minha cid­ade (sou de maceió), em sua car­reira solo. Quardo no cor­ação este momento. Um abraço, Bárbara.

  12. Carlinha- Recife says:

    Ai meu Deus!!!
    Só de pensar que nunca mais ver­ei eles ao vivo, can­t­ando os sucessos do Simply Red…
    A banda mar­cou muito minha vida! Apesar de eu ter menos tempo de vida ( 23 anos) do que a banda de car­reirá. Perdi uma pess­oa ha uns anos atrás, e ouvia muito Simply Red nessa épo­ca, e sempre que ouvia, lem­brava dele.
    Estar no show foi como trazê-lo para mim, pelo menos dur­ante 1:40min.
    Eu ima­gina que eles nunca fari­am um show aqui em Recife, mais de uma década depois a sur­presa! Eles aqui, na minha frente. É uma emoção única.
    Nos­tal­gia, alegria e saudade é o que sinto agora. E não paro de ouvir e assi­stir S.R.

    Red beijo à todos.

    Muita saúde e sucesso a banda.

    Con­grats!
    The show was amaz­ing, even miss­ing “A New Flame”, “Fair­ground”, “Home”, “Night Nurse”, “Per­fect Love” and “You Make Me Feel Brand New”, was pretty good, spe­cially because happened in my city. We needed to travel from Pet­ro­lina (800km) to see.
    As many said it was tech­nic­ally per­fect and Mick in a great per­form­ance as usu­al with his unique voice (where were the back­ing vocals girls?!) did his best for us.
    When he was singing “Hold­ing Back The Years”, me and my wife did­n’t res­ist and star­ted dance togeth­er as good time, but look­ing to him, and Mick came in front of us and looked, I guess was a great priv­ilege!
    God bless you.

    Hello Mick talks about you’re describ­ing, tal­ent, suc­cess, cent­ral­ity, self-over­com­ing, sing­er, song­writer, musi­cian of geni­us, an extraordin­ary bal­ance. With a port of a lord. I am very grate­ful to par­ents who did and God was my wit­ness con­sents to the artist and won­der­ful man. I wish much hap­pi­ness, health Ah! You’re skinny!

    My God!
    Será que estamos tecendo comentári­os da mesma pess­oa? Sou do RJ, e pude ver bem de perto o Mick, sua bela voz,seu charme, seus músi­cos impecá­veis… Mas não ficou só nisso, não! Eu fiquei na pista vip, junto à grade, pude vê-lo bem de perto! Um sonho real­iz­ado, após tan­tos anos… E mais, ele se agachou, por duas vezes, bem próx­imo a mim e sor­riu além de me dar tchauzinho,que logo cor­res­pondi com cara de babaca!!!! Tavez porque tenha per­ce­bido de rel­ance, minha fas­cin­ação, nossa fascinação…porque não fez só comigo, é óbvio, que charme…Uma aprox­im­ação foi dur­ante a música your mir­ror. Aquele sor­riso todo char­moso ficará gravado pra sempre em min­has lem­branças. Foram só dois momentos,mas que pra mim ser­ão eter­n­os. Ele foi sim­pático com o público, o show foi bem anim­ado, teve dois bis, e pena que à meia-noite tenha acabado. Saí chor­ando de saudades. Ah! Ele can­tou For your Babies, e o rep­er­tório não deix­ou a dever em nada. Ele está com tudo em cima. Char­moso, voz mara­vil­hosa, sim­pático, sim. Até mais my love

    Fui ao show ontem 20/4 aqui em São Paulo e saí frus­trada!!! Não tocou For Your Babies, Say You Love Me, You Make Me Feel Brand New, entre out­ras que deveri­am obrig­atóri­a­mente (pelo menos para mim)estar no Set List.….para um show de des­pe­dida acho que deix­ou muito a dese­jar.…

  23. Thelma says:

    Pleaaaaase!!!!!!!! Mick include in you set­l­ist You make me feel brand for México

  24. Aline Cajé says:

    I’d like to thank you Mick for have com­ing to Recife and have made my dream come true. Very few artists do the same. They nev­er per­form at the North­east of our huge Brazil. I trav­elled 800 km to see you.
    I’d like to thank you for have sung “Enough”, one of my favour­ites tunes. I thought I would nev­er listen to it live.
    I missed Sarah Brown and I think Fair­ground is “so tip­ic­ally Brazili­an sound” with those drums that I got aston­ished you didn´t sing it.
    Love you.

  25. Linda--Clemson, SC, USA says:

    Hi, Mick et al of Simply Red!!

    Con­grats on the begin­ning of your final tour! From the looks of the com­ments on the mes­sage boards, you are off to a GREAT start. I wish you all good luck and safe travels for your tour. If pos­sible, can you PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE put some of the con­certs on You­Tube for those of us fans in the US who will not be able to come to your farewell con­certs.

    Again, good luck, safe travels, and Big Hugs to all of you. May you con­tin­ue to bring your God-giv­en gift of music to all your fans!!

  27. Laila says:

    Fui ao show do Simply Red ano pas­sado (2009) achando que ser­ia o último, no Rio — Cit­bank Hall. E em 2010 tive a opor­tunid­ade de ver a minha banda preferida desde os 15 anos !!! A feli­cid­ade e plen­it­ude daquela 1 hora e meia da minha vida vou guardar para sempre em minha memória. Vi o Mick tão de perto .… um sonho !!!! Simply Red forever! Par­abéns, show lindo, impecável, rep­er­tório difer­ente do tradi­cion­al foi espetacu­lar!! Que venha a car­reira solo !

  28. gerardo melo says:

    Fui ao show no Rio e viajei de Fortaleza ate Recife para ve-lo nova­mente. Como o show do Rio foi apo­teotico, esper­ei o mesmo em Recife. Mesmo sem o brilho anteri­or, ele tem carisma de sobra para deix­ar pago o ingresso, mas foi pou­co para a dimensao deste artista. Mui­tos dos seus grandes sucessos nao foram toca­dos, impossi­veis de ser­em deix­a­dos fora numa turne de des­pe­dida.
    Sua banda em Recife pare­cia nao entrar no clima con­ta­gi­ante do Rio.
    Vai deix­ar muita gente com gosto de podia ser muito mel­hor…

  29. patricia says:

    eli­ana, chor­ei com suas declarações, porque pare­cem que foram feitas por mim.Esse sen­ti­mento que vc nutre pelo Mick é o mesmo que o meu. Idêntico. Eu o amo muito. Sou do Rio de Janeiro, e aguardo com ansiedade o dia 23 de abril para ter esse encon­tro único em minha vida, que espero por tanto tempo.

  30. franco says:

    Hello Brazil fans !

    Can you please give us the set list (song list — lista do can­ciones) of the show.

    I´ll go to the 2 Simply Red shows here in Chile !!!!
    I went last year to the Fest­iv­al de Viña del Mar show, and it was amaz­ing

    cheers folks !!!

  31. Ana Carla says:

    Vou ao show em SP!
    Por favor, alguem da organ­iz­a­cao me ouca! Que eles toquem tb “for your babies”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. Peter Alex says:

    The show here in Recife was tech­nic­ally per­fect, as people said above. But I´ve got two com­plaints:

    1 — The show too short. We wanted to hear you Mick much more.
    2 — They didn´t play “For your babies”, their most beau­ti­ful song (in my opin­ion).

    Except for that, everything was amaz­ing !

    It´s worth­while

  33. Débora says:

    The show was AMAZING!!!! I don’t believe it’s the farewell tour! :’(
    It was an unfor­get­able show!

  34. Simple Red em Recife foi lindo mas poder­ia ser mel­hor, desde que os organ­iz­adores e empresári­os tivessem o cuid­ado de mel­hor­ar o antes de cada show. Os telões deveri­am aque­cer o público com clips dos artista que irá se apresent­ar e não deix­ar o público olhando um para cara do outro dur­ante algu­mas hor­as antes do show. outro detalhe, Mick não can­tou “for your babies”, frus­trou pelo menos todo meu grupo!

  35. eliana santos says:

    Estou com saudades,esta hora ja estava aconte­cendo o show de mick,lindo,lindo,espero que os patro­cinadores o tragam na car­reira solo,fico a pensar, esta hora ele se encon­tra em solo barsileiro em outro estado,o que estará fazendo,oh,como é bom real­iz­ar­mos 1 sonho, ruim é depois a saudade que bate forte e que deixa um gostinho de quero mais,imaginar que esta res­pir­ando o oxi­genio que respiro,mais que nao estou com ele, nem apresentada fui, deixa uma sensaçao de vazio,mais infe­l­iz­mente a vida e feita de momentos, e este momento nao sei se repitira,peço a deus que sim,mick red te amo,meu querido,que deus o proteja,eliana,17,04.10recife/pe as 23;03hs.

  36. Geciane Alencar says:

    Show no Chev­ro­let Hall PERFEITO! Um show lindo, som mara­vil­hoso… opor­tunid­ade única que tive. Espero vê-los nova­mente.

  37. Cidinha says:

    HuuuuUUh­huuuUUuu.…
    Sem comentári­os!!!
    Eles são real­mente per­fei­tos. Fizer­a­muma ótima seleção para o rep­er­tório, mas as preferi­das não foram toca­das. Mesmo assim o Simply Red foi won­der­full!!!!

  38. Paloma Emerenciano says:

    O show em Recife foi simples­mente PERFEITO!!! Um dos mel­hores shows que já fui na vida!!!!

  39. Cande says:

    AHHH! I’m so excited!

    Because..it would have to be “SAD­bye” :(

  40. Jorge Washinton says:

    Show tec­nica­mente per­feito!!! Quem tiver opor­tunid­ade de ir não per­cam. A qual­id­ade do som e dos músi­cos foi a mel­hor que já vi em um show!! Que banda! Que show!!!

    Eu con­heci o Simply Red assistindo o Grammy ao com­cor­rer a mel­hor rev­elação com Money´s to ta to Men­tion, o oponente Bruce Hornsby gan­hou com The way it is, mas o coment­arista disse o Simply Red per­deu mas e uma banda que pro­mente muito, bom eu tenho prat­ica­mente tudo da banda cd´s inclu­is­ive as edições ( collector´s ) e todos os dvd´s alem de dois lasedisc let me take you home (japan) e starry night with (japan), ao sair o 25 greatest hits eu comentey será que ele nunca virá ao Recife, e veio o show foi muito bom, creio que em ter­mos de voz será difi­cil alguem super­ar parabens, pela ginga e carisma, eu quer­ia muito poder ter dado os parabems pela car­reira, mas o que tra­balha com amor e ded­icação e assim, sempre da certo.
    Sen­tir falta dos volalis­tas elas trazião um chame aparte aos show mas valeu, parabens pelos mem­bros atuais que são nota 10, mas não podemos esque­cer os mem­bros do começo, e ao Heit­or Per­reira, que levou uma grande con­tribuição ao grupo.

  46. mario maritns says:

    Muito bom real­mente. Pou­cou artis­tas tem o carisma e o tal­ento de simply red. parabens, e que não seje a ultima turne, ser­ia um des­per­di­cio para o mundo da musica.

  47. ALBERTO BRANDÃO says:

    OH, WHAT A NIGHT!!!! SIMPLY RED, SIMPLY WONDERFUL, SIMPLY THE BEST, SIMPLY LOVE, SIMPLY MY DREAMS CAME TRUE. THANK YOU MICK. I DID HOLD BACK THOSE YEARS. SIMPLY. HOPE TO SEE YOU AGAIN, GUYS.
