13 SIMPLE MINDS, Silent Running, London Hammersmith Odeon, Sunday 13 May 1984

Went on Rimes Coaches up to London for this gig! This was a rejigged date after the original date of 16 March was postponed due to Simple Minds vocalist Jim Kerr losing his voice. Silent Running were a good support with some strong anthemic tunes; Simple Minds concentrated on their recent more expansive, commercial and poppier material, rather than their more challenging, Kraftwerk-like earlier stuff, and disappointed by not doing any encores.
