    Default Simply Red

    I am no fan of Simply Red but I watched the 2018 concert in Holland and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance,the orchestra were marvelous the ladies wore red dresses Mick Hucknall in his dinner suit.The audience had a great time singing and dancing it was worth while watching on sky arts the only downside was the adverts interrupting the flow overall I gave a 9 out of 10

    Yeah, watched this myself, strange song to open with Frank sinatras "all or nothing at all" which diden't really suit his style but the concert on the whole was great. My wife is a massive fan of Simply red, we are going to see them next year

    A good time to start this thread because Simply Red's hit Fairground was number one in the charts in 1995, ironically during Goose Fair week that year! Here in Nottingham, the annual Goose Fair would have taken place later on this week but it has been cancelled this year due to the coronavirus - the first time it has been cancelled since the Second World War.

    Another coincidence between Simply Red and Nottingham is the name Hucknall which is a town north of Nottingham, as well as Mick Hucknall's surname!
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    I didnít like them back in the day, but now I donít mind a bit of Mick warbling in the background. Maybe my middle aged ears have grown into them.

    Ditto, they are my wifes thing actually but i have to say if you listen to them live Hucknall is always note perfect and a lot of the songs are pretty damn catchy
