Four decades of soulful tunes, chart-topping albums, and a fan base that stretches from Manchester to the far corners of the globe—Simply Red isn’t just a band; it’s a legacy. As they gear up for their 40th-anniversary UK & Ireland arena tour, mark your calendars for an unmissable Manchester show. They’re hitting Co-op Live on 27 September 2025, and you’ll want to be there when Mick Hucknall belts out every hit from ’85 till now.
Pre-sale kicks off 19 September, so pencil it in. The general public gets a shot on 21 September, both at 10.00am. Hucknall himself promises a night jam-packed with your Simply Red favourites, celebrating the band’s epic journey.
Why are they so celebrated? Take your pick: 60 million albums sold worldwide, five UK #1 albums, and more than a billion streams across platforms. Their live gigs are less like concerts and more like masterclasses in musicianship—no wonder they keep selling out tours.
