Here, you can watch the full 90-minute performance by Jim Kerr and Co. filmed on June 6, 1982.

Simple Minds last week announced plans to release a double-CD live album culled from this year’s “5×5 Live” tour of Europe, and now comes the full tracklist, which, keeping with the tour’s concept, draws five songs apiece off of each of the band’s first five albums. Check out the full tracklist.
Simple Minds are putting the finishing touches on a 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.’
Simple Minds today unveiled plans for a 16-date European tour early next year dubbed ‘5X5 Live’ that will see the band each night perform five songs off of each of its first five albums. The group also will release a new box set, ‘Simple Minds X5,’ featuring those five albums and previously unreleased bonus material.
With a new best-of set due sometime early next year, Simple Minds on Monday announced plans for a unique summer trek across Great Britain: the seven-date ‘Greatest Hits U.K. Forest Tour,’ which is exactly what it sounds like — a ‘series of dates in spectacular woodlands locations.’
Jim Kerr reports that Simple Minds recently hit the studio to record tracks — including a ‘New Gold Dream’-era castoff — that are earmarked for both ‘an extensive compilation’ due out in early 2011 and what eventually will become the band’s 16th studio album.
