Classic songs like "Alive and Kicking", "Sanctify Yourself", "Don't You (Forget About Me)", "Promised You A Miracle", "Waterfront" and "Belfast Child" established Simple Minds with a global audience with a run of No 1 albums including 'Sparkle In the Rain', 'Once Upon A Time' and 'Street Fighting Years', propelling them to supergroup status in the UK.

Special guest support for all dates will be Starsailor front man James Walsh.

Simple Minds Greatest Hits will be released Spring 2011.

Money generated by Forestry Commission Live Music ticket sales is spent directly on the nation's woodlands, benefiting everything from butterflies to mountain bikers.

Commenting on the tour, Jim Kerr for Simple Minds said, "We've never done the forest gigs before so we are really looking forward to performing in such beautiful places."
