Once Upon A Time Tour

Information and tour dates coming soon.




This colour 32 page tour programme was sold at the first gigs. It was bascially an art book, stuffed with Anton Corbijn photographs of the band around New York State.





This colour 40 page tour programme was sold during the second half of the tour. It was still an art book filled with Anton Corbijn photographs of the band around New York State, but there were additional shots of the band on stage.





A deluxe tour programme was produced for the Japanese gigs stuffed full of exclusive colour Guido Harari photographs.





This Italian bootleg tour programme was produced for the Reggio Emilia gig.





And a British bootleg tour programme was sold at the Ibrox and Milton Keyne Bowl gigs.





The Total Access pass for the tour reflected the simplistic graphic design of the album.





The other laminated pass design was even more simplistic. These were probably issued individually by the tour manager for sections of the tour.





Different laminated AAA passes were issued for the Australian leg of the tour.





Different coloured material passes for different access restrictions were issued for specific nights. Each would have the venue and date written on the front for specific gigs.





Only pink and blue versions have surfaced so far.





Promoters Regular Music handled the Ibrox concert (and possibly others). They produced their own range of custom passes which feature their large "R" logo along with the Simple Minds logo across the top in gold. This is the AAA pass.





Regular aftershow pass.





First desgin of the Regular guest pass for the show only.





And the second Regular guess pass design.

"It was Halloween 1985 when Simple Minds first used a live percussionist. We had just released our Once Upon A Time album and rather nervously started our world tour in Poughkeepsie, New York. The highlights that night were vocalist Robin Clark and percussionist Sue Hadjopuolos, both making their debuts with Simple Minds. The rest of us were unfortunately a little under rehearsed. Both toured throughout the next year, featuring in more than 150 Simple Minds concerts worldwide. To this day we have great affection for them and feel honoured to have had their talent on stage with us. As is the way with everyone and anyone we have shared a stage with. All played a part in our on-going story." - Jim, 31st October 2016.

The master tapes for Live In Rotterdam suggest they originated from this concert. However, there are no multi-tracks or master tapes for this date logged. This suggests this concert wasn't recorded and the source for Live In Rotterdam and The Tube was Day 3.

The whole gig was recorded by Virgin. Only a handful of tracks have been officially released.

Part of this gig was found in Mick MacNeil's archive. His copy appeared to be the version mixed by Pete Walsh as his versions of Don't You (Forget About Me) and Street Hassle are identical with the released ones. Whilst parts of this gig were issued on various radio show transcription discs, some tracks turned up as B-sides, and a representative chunk turned up on Silver Box, the entire gig remains unreleased. Songs in Mick's archive such as Oh Jungleland, Someone Somewhere (In Summertime), The American and East At Easter have yet to be issued.

Part of this gig was found in Mick MacNeil's archive. It fades out in Don't You (Forget About Me) and doesn't rejoin until half-way through Oh Jungleland. It's a good clean recording and documents Jim's battle with his voice - the outro of Someone Somewhere (In Summertime) includes the unique refrain of "My voice is knackered. My voice is gone."
