As hinted at over the weekend, Simple Minds today announced a rare North American tour that will hit 24 cities in September and October, the most extensive touring the band has done in the U.S. and Canada in more than 30 years.
The tour — the band’s first since a seven-date run in 2013 — opens Sept. 24 in Bethlehem, Pa., and runs through Oct. 29 in Vancouver, B.C. All told the trek includes 20 dates in the U.S. and four in Canada.
The general on-sale for all shows begins 10 a.m. local time on Friday, though Simple Minds’ website lists pre-sales and other meet-and-greet and soundcheck ticketing options.
The band, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary, promises to play two full sets each night “featuring iconic songs spanning their whole career and including tracks from the new album Walk Between Worlds.”
Having released their first album in four years, earlier this year, Simple Minds currently have dates scheduled in the U.K. in August and September with The Pretenders. The North American tour will be the band’s most extensive since 1985’s Once Upon a Time trek.
