simple minds don't you forget rte late late show

Probably the most famous Simple Minds song is ‘Don’t You Forget About Me‘ from that 1980s classic movie The Breakfast Club.

Last night in Dublin, Ireland, Simple Minds performed ‘Don’t You Forget About Me‘ live on RTÉ’s The Late Late Show and, yep, they rocked it.

Of course, it was nice to see a band this iconic still be able to put on a great performance of a song they must have performed several thousand times by now.

And, is it me, or does frontman Jim Kerr just seem to be getting better and better?

As for ‘Don’t You Forget About Me‘, Simple Minds is performing this nowadays it is from their upcoming new album Big Music Tour 2015, which looks like it’s going to be a very cool offering indeed.

It’s a live double album featuring not only a slew of their biggest hits, all performed live, but also music from their latest album Big Music.

But, what makes this new Simple Minds album even more interesting is it will only be released on their website – Simpleminds.com both in CD form and as a digital download.
