Live Review: Simple Minds
Venue: London O2 Arena
80s pomp-rockers hold back the years.
Jim Kerr stalks the expansive O2 stage like a man warming up for a long race. He stretches, he rushes the lip of the stage and he holds one very impressive note during Up On The Catwalk while practically flat on his back. Older – and wider – he and his audience might be, but time has not diminished Simple Minds’ impact or their ability to near fill the cavernous O2.
