    Amazing night and gutted there wont be another. Well worth the money I payed to be in the front block. And at 24yrs old am I simplys youngest fan? Maybe…I didnt see anyone under the age of say 30 there that night. Plus it turned out the women in front of me worked at the same place I used to, and knows all my friends. Small world!
    Merry Xmas everyone and happy 2011!!

    having read the rest of the reviews of this concert, i have to say, am i the only one who noticed mr hucknall had a stinking cold? he was blowing his nose after every song and looked terrible, was amazed that he did as well as he did!having seen simply red many many times over the years i can honestly say it was the worst i have heard mick sing, which was understandable in the circumstances and he still sounded good. my main dissapointment this evening was the absence of the lovely ‘singing girls’ dee and sarah, where were you? it felt to me like there was only a skeleton band on stage,if this had been the last time i had seen simply red i would have left being slightly dissapointed,as it was i had also got 6 tickets for the last night and ———–it was brilliant, mick was recovered,the lovely singing girls were in attendance,plus more musicians, a full on performance which was a fitting end to a brilliant band that i have loved since my twenties!

    We had as usual a fantastic evening. In all these years and concerts we have never been disappointed. It has only just hit me that I will never be able to enjoy a band, a singer, the atmosphere, the sheer joy of the fans that we experience at every concert ever again. Please, please dont leave us like this!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Have seen Simply Red many times before with my sister and we knew we had to go once more before they went their separate ways and boy, we were not disappointed……….they were fantastic, as usual, and we had the best night ever.
    Sound and lighting was amazing and only added to the spectacle!
    Mick and the band were on top form and we shall sadly miss them in the future.
    All the best boys!
    Thank you for 25 years of great music.

    Reading other reviews brings it all back. The guy next to me kept saying “unbelievable” – how true! Exceptional voice – I agree – better that on the CD’s – and great performance – sang from 9.10pm ’til 10.50pm. Left the O2 on a high and wanting more.

  8. Val Grant says:

    Have followed Mick and Simply Red from the start and been to many live performances. Never ever been disappointed!
    What a fantastic show and what a voice. Would hope to see him again with The Faces. Thank you SIMPLY FANTASTIC!

  9. Gillian Ward says:

    Have loved Simply Red right from the start. To my complete surprise, my daughter bought two tickets for us to see the show at the O2 on 8/12/10 for my birthday. We had a fantastic night. What an amazing performance. Had goose bumps and tears rolling down my face all night. Very moving. Beautiful lighting. It was a night I shall never ever forget. Thank you so much.

    Simply fantastic concert at the O2 on Weds, vocals absolutely wonderful as usual. Great set with all our favourites and an encore. Brilliant day out, with my daughter and her fiance joining us this time and enjoying the concert every bit as much as we did. Thanks Simply Red, 25 years isn’t enough. Sooooooooooo goin to miss you. Good luck with everything you all do in the future. Simply Red will always be Simply the Best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Simplemente “impresionante”, el mejor concierto que he visto en mi vida. Gracias por una noche inolvidable, fué increíble haber tenido la oportunidad de escucharlos en vivo. Increíble.

  12. Deana says:

    excellent evening, thanks for all the music over the years, will see the final farewell at a cinema, hoping you will be back with some newer sounds soon.

  13. claire says:

    Oh what a guy! Thanks for a fantastic show and so much enjoyment over the years. Will really miss Simply Red.

  14. Jayne Maddox says:

    Here we are several days after the Farewell concert at the O2 London and I am still in awe at the performance given by Mick and the group. No words could ever truly describe the talent, the voice, the words of the songs or the pleasure they have given us over the past 25 years. Mick and Simply Red have given inspriation to all ages and I thank them for that. Life without your music will never be the same and the performance was electric. I would definitely go again to see them and already miss them. Thank you for the years of enjoyment you have given to everyone and I wish you all the best but don’t ever be afraid to come back to our ears and souls. Your sound will go on forever – thank you. xxx

    I thought Mick Hucknall was absolutely superb,he gave a 110% performance and you really felt that it meant a lot to him to put on the best show.
    It will be sad not see SIMPLY RED live again, but I am so pleased that I was able to get brilliant seats and enjoy the fantastic songs and music one more time.
    A most memorable evening which will stay with me for ever.

  16. night nurse says:

    best ever. from brighton 1986 till now-have been to every tour. amazing night. missed sad old red but still a rocking night. thankyou mick

  17. Jason Kinney says:

    Absolutly superb, I loved every second. What a voice you couldn’t fault it all, sounded just as good as ever. Very emotional farewell, but my god what a farewell it was, I didn’t stop moving all the way through. Thank you for your wonderful music , I will still be listening for years to come. Simply Red = Simply Amazing!!

  18. MeliePelie says:

    Incredible performance by Mick and the rest of Simply Red at the 02 on December 8th. Mick’s voice has just become more beautiful and rich over the years. Fabulous performance and thoroughly enjoyed it – just wish he had done an encore but sadly he didn’t. His final performance of Holding Back the Years with him solo on the guitar was just perfect :)

  19. Ruth King says:

    What an amazing concert!Mike Hucknell’s voice is fantastic,better than it sounds on cd.He sang for about 2hrs and 45mins.His musicians are out of this world,also doing his backing vocals.Worth every penny and well organised at the O2.

  20. Debbie mallard says:

  21. Annette says:

  22. sally says:

    Absolutly Brilliant Show.

  23. Breeze says:

    Absolutely amazing performance.
    What a voice.

  24. Alison B says:

    What a great night, plenty of dancing and singing and as usual Mick in great form. It was a bit sad leaving and knowing that was it but at least we have all the videos to watch, enjoy and remember!!!!! Certainly very tired today!!!
    Will miss you lots and lots, thank you for all those years

    02 Arena, Wed 8th Dec. Amazing concert !! But…Simply Red didn’t start until 21.10 , and finished at 22.50, and it then took me 2 and a half hours to get home via tube and train ( only 30 miles outside London). Crazy , especially in such cold / bad weather!! Still I shouldn’t moan too much as I’ve seen the band live since 1986, and it was a privilege to witness the Farewell Tour. Mick’s voice still soars over an accomplished group of musicians. Vocal harmonies were superb. And to close with Holding the Years, was just so special. We loved it !!!!

  26. Angey says:

    Great show – loved it – as always. Thanks for 25 years of great music.

  27. Janice McCauley says:

    Just got home from the O2 London, after seeing Simply Reds Farewell Tour, wow what a concert, I have loved Micks voice/ music from the minute I first heard him. I was hooked ever since. I have been to many of his concerts, all were brilliant. Have every CD/DVD. I look forward to seeing him again with the Faces although the end of Simply Red is the end of an era. Thank you for the music Mick
    Simply the Best!!!
