Simple Minds are putting the finishing touches on a double-CD live album culled from this year’s “5×5 Live” tour of Europe, which found the band each night performing five songs off of each of its first five albums — Life In A Day, Real To Real Cacophony, Empires and Dance, Sons and Fascination/Sister Feelings Calling and New Gold Dream (81, 82, 83, 84), which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.
LIVE RECORDINGS 5×5:
Spent last night listening to GG’s final mixes, what a fine job he did. Anyone who liked the 5×5 shows is bound to appreciate this soon to be released collection. For those who could catch not the shows, this collection taken from various shows in a handful of cities will let you hear what went on. Hope you like it.
A listing on Germany’s Amazon.de shows a 2CD album called 5×5 Live Ltd. due out Nov. 19.
