Simple Minds supported The B52s in their co-headling tour of Australia and New Zealand. I knew of Simple Minds from years ago and knew a few of their more well known songs. I always like to listen to a band’s songs before photoing them and i have to say i was pleasantly surprised by the power rock of the first few songs of their set. Live they were excellent. Lots of running around the stage and all the musicians active and engaging with the audience!
From a photography point of view it was excellent too as we had the full run of the pit and there few if any obstructions (mic stands etc) between us as the musicians !
If it hadn’t been for the fact i was working to an editing deadline i would have stayed to watch their whole set.
