Tour Du Monde

Information and tour dates coming soon.




The colour 20 page tour programme was again written by Adam Sweeting and designed by Malcolm Garrett. This time by Sweeting included edited pieces from his forthcoming book Mission In Motion.





A special deluxe tour programme was produced for the Japanese gigs. This included far more, previously unpublished, live shots of the band.





The AAA pass for the December gigs was based on the new Simple Minds logo.



The design reverted to the album sleeve for the rest of the tour. Different strips of paper were stuck to the card before the pass was laminated which gave different names to the various legs of the tour along with different access restrictions. Therefore lots of variants of this pass were produced.



Single colour passes based on the same design were produced for "All Areas" and "Security" access.



Passes for the Hammersmith gigs mentioned the band's record-breaking eight nights at the venue.



The pass design was changed again by promoter UDO Artists for the short Japanese leg of the tour. They also produced their own tour programme.



Fogel Sabourin Productions cunningly used the Sparkle Through The Years sleeve as the basis for their pass.

Narara Festival, Sommersby, Australia
January 27th, 1984

"It must be said that we made one of the biggest gaffes in our career in Australia - while performing at the country’s huge Narara Festival in February ’84. Hindsight in a wonderful thing of course, but how were we to know that we might be stretching the patience of a festival audience a little too much by playing a headlining set that was composed mostly of as yet unreleased material. Duh? Silly or what?"

"But in truth we wanted to do something a bit special, and it just seemed a brave and bold thing to do. I guess we somehow figured – quite wrongly – that the Narara audience would really appreciate the chance of a full preview of the soon to be released songs from Simple Minds Sparkle In The Rain album."

"The reality was somewhat different however, and we trundled off stage to a good enough reaction it has to be said. But definitely muted in comparison to what we had come to expect. In any case, it was a quiet old dressing room afterwards, this I can tell you. Not because we felt that our "brave" decision had backfired. More because we suddenly felt like the dumbest band on the planet that night – and we were!"

"The fault was all ours after all. People who had come to hear the songs they knew and loved were left a tad bewildered, as we dumped past favourites for too many "newbies." And all in all it was definitely a case of too much too soon. Had for example, the event occurred a couple of months later even, I can confidently guess that songs like Waterfront, Up On The Catwalk and Speed Your Love To Me would have gone over devastatingly well with the huge crowd, as they did just about everywhere else in the globe. We undoubtedly would have known how to play them much better by then also and that was also a huge problem at Narara in that we were wildly under rehearsed for a set of new songs that were built on pretty complex sounds and arrangements. (I cannot remember why that should be, I just recall that is how it was!)"

"Ah well! Mistakes as we all know are valuable, but only if you learn from them, and I know that we were constantly learning and improving back then.In fact, I seriously hope that all these years later we are still learning and improving." - Jim 10th October 2011
