Simple Minds - The Floating World

Damian Steels

First visit

I remember my very first visit watching Simple Minds in 2001. We were "up in the gods" back then and knew we had to venture back to the most iconic live venue the UK has to offer.  However, it would take another 12 years for me to return where I was in the seated arena area as we saw Steven Wilson perform. 2015 was the next visit where we saw David Gilmour as my then newly wed wife and I concluded our honeymoon on this night. Back two evenings after that for Mr Wilson again and almost in the same seats on the first seated only tier.  I'm back again as SW (again) plays out to an already sold out March 2018 gig. Such a monumental venue where I've often said evenue the crowd's applause sounds acoustically perfect!
