Do we think of Simply Red as a guilty pleasure-listen to them only when no one is around-at-home-late at night with a glass of very special Pinot Noir from Dr. Konstantin Frank?  Possibly so, but we gave up alcohol sometime back and don’t even sneak a 7ML syringe shot in a glass when floating in our own sensory deprivation tank in the closet down the hall.

What is Simply Red to you?  My Lloyd Cole, Roxy Music, Style Council, Squeeze, Lou Reed, Cure youth also included the occasional Simply Red track.  Are you romantic enough to tolerate the aging Mick Hucknall pajama prance across the stage-while the Simply Red Samurai sharp lead guitarist poses in his best Rock God solo facial orgasmic ecstatic?

Mick Hucknall
Bursting out of Manchester in the Eighties, Simply Red pioneered a distinctively British soul sound that has captivated music lovers for over 25 years. In this stunning concert filmed at the magnificent Sydney Opera House in October 2010, Simply Red say a temporary Farewell to fans as they take time out from the spotlight, and celebrate a career that yielded over 50 million album sales and a raft of chart-topping singles. This concert captures a group at the peak of their powers. Backed by a magnificent six-piece band, frontman Mick Hucknall’s vocal performance shows once again that he has one of the finest voices of his generation.
