Having found fame as part of 90s favourite boy band, Take That, Robbie Williams is one of the most decorated music artists in the world with over 80 million album sales worldwide and countless awards. As well as the hits, Robbie emerged as the most acclaimed and charismatic live performer of his times, a position that was cemented and celebrated by his record-breaking 2003 Knebworth shows over three nights in front of a huge 375,000 people, as well as breaking the record for the most tickets sold in one day – 1.6 million – for his 2006 ‘Close Encounters’ tour.

Simple Minds have experienced a remarkable journey since releasing their debut album ‘Life in a Day’ in 1979. Constantly evolving, the band’s rousing choruses and booming atmospherics made them one of the most iconic bands of the Eighties. Along the way, they’ve landed five UK #1 albums, topped the singles charts on both sides of the Atlantic, sold over 60 million albums and packed stadiums the world over. But the story didn’t end there. After taking some time out, they returned revitalised and resurgent with the 2014 album ‘Big Music’ and have maintained that upward momentum ever since. They claimed the Q Inspiration Award that same year, which was followed by an Ivor Novello in 2016. And when 2018’s ‘Walk Between Worlds’ album crashed into the UK charts at #4, it represented their highest position in 23 years. No wonder that the Manic Street Preachers, Moby, Primal Scream and many others cite Simple Minds as a vital inspiration.

Siobhan went on to have hit singles and albums around the world as part of Shakespears Sister before becoming a solo artist. Bananarama made it into the Guinness Book Of Records as the most successful female group of all time on account of the fact they’d had more hit singles than any other girl band ever. To date they have had 30 chart hits. They hit the top of charts around the world. In the US, Venus became their first #1 single on the Billboard chart.
