Hello everybody / Salut à tous!
My name is Luis and I'm from Zaragoza, a city in the north-east of Spain.
I've been a Simple Minds fan for more than ten years now and I've been very lucky to come up with this great forum, almost by chance!
I started becoming really interested in Simple Minds' music on 23 April 1995, the day when they played in my city as part of the 'Good news from the next world' tour. I attended the concert because I had already listened to some of their songs on the radio, and I thought some of them were really good tunes. I especially liked 'Real life'.
The concert was a bit short, only one hour or so (now I can only remember Jim with long hair!), but it was enough to start a great relationship with their music which has lasted up to nowadays and beyond!
The first record I bought from them was 'Live in the City of Light' (my favourite one, so far) and now I own everything of theirs on CD and DVD, except the 'Themes' series, which I expect to get later this year!
I really like them because I think few bands in the world can match Simple Minds' uniqueness in their performances, always reworking their songs and giving them new life without losing their true essence and spirit... and this forum is the perfect place to keep and feel all this!
I hope to contribute as much as I can to this forum!
Meanwhile, let's hope the next thirty years of Simple Minds live will be at least as good as the first thirty ones
