night of the proms '97



After a succesful festival tour of Europe (during which Glitterball and War Babies were premiered) Jim and Charlie saw out the rest of 1997 by appearing in the European Proms.

Backed by a full orchestra and choir, Simple Minds played some of their best known songs to Proms audiences throughout Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands and Austria.

Whilst Charlie kept both feet on the ground, Jim would we swept around, high above the venue, on a flying platform.

At the end of each concert, all the players would return to the stage to sing Yellow Submarine.

To introduce concert goers to Simple Minds, Virgin issued The Promised as a handly CD compilation album. It was intended to only be sold at the Proms themselves, but copies ended up being imported far and wide.


The tour programme featured a two page biography of the band along with several exclusive photographs.



The Promised was released to be sold at the concerts. It featured the songs played live and other hits from their back catalogue.
