BBC Radio 2 Piano Room

We are delighted to announce that Simply Red will be performing a special Piano Room session for BBC Radio 2 on February 14th. Tune in to Ken Bruce’s show from 11:30am UK time to hear the band perform three songs with the BBC Concert Orchestra from the legendary Maida Vale Studios.

Dave Clayton

Sad news for Simply Red. Our dear friend and colleague Dave Clayton has announced that he no longer wishes to tour and is inevitably leaving the band. We fully respect his decision. Touring is a challenge even for young bucks! Dave is a lovely, admirable human being who we understand wishes to spend more quality time with his delightful partner Sue. All at Simply Red wish him a prosperous and happy future and thank him for his wonderful contribution over many years.

Happy Christmas!

Here’s hoping you’re able to have a Happy Christmas. Wishing you well for the New Year too. Cheers! M x
