SIMPLE MINDS

The group’s vigorous output continues with two packages. The first is a live set, In the City of Angels (BMG) from the Orpheum Theatre, Los Angeles on 24 October 2018 (Glittering Prize was recorded at The Fillmore, Miami Beach on 8th November 2018, though). Apart from the latter, you get the whole concert.
