Simple Minds plus special guests Ultravox have selected the NIA as their only Midlands venue, as part of a special four date tour this November.

Simple Minds are one of the UK's most successful rock groups to date. Having topped America's Billboard chart, the Glasgow band have achieved six No.1 albums in the UK as well hitting the top spot in countless other territories including Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Australia and New Zealand. The band will release their 'Celebrate – Greatest Hits +' on 25th March.

Simple Minds are also arguably one of the best live bands in the world and over a thirty year career have been responsible for some of the most innovative and enduring anthems in rock music.

Meanwhile Ultravox returned last year with 'Brilliant' their first studio album in 28 years featuring the classic line up Midge Ure, Billy Currie, Chris Cross and Warren Cann.

Emerging from the new wave and electro scenes of the late 70's, Ultravox fashioned a form of electronic rock music that was uniquely powerful and delivered massive hits through the 1980's such as 'Hymn', 'Dancing With Tears In My Eyes', 'The Voice', 'Reap The Wild Wind', 'Love's Great Adventure', 'We Came To Dance' and of course the timeless and atmospheric 'Vienna'.

Expect to hear songs from both bands’ extensive back catalogues including 'Alive and Kicking', 'Don't You (Forget About Me)', 'Waterfront', 'Vienna' and more.

Simple Minds are Jim Kerr, Charlie Burchill, Mel Gaynor, Andy Gillespie and Ged Grimes.

Tickets for Simple Minds plus special guests Ultravox are priced at £39.50 and £55.00 plus booking & transaction fees, on sale 9.30am Friday 22 March.  Available at The Ticket Factory: www.theticketfactory.com or 0844 338 8000.
