With special guest Hollie Smith!

In what is being billed as the The Greatest Hits Live, SIMPLY RED led by charismatic front man Mick Hucknall, will revisit the highlights of their incredible 25 year, 10 album career in theatre and outdoor shows around the country this summer.

The tour will include ‘a day on the green’ at Villa Maria Estate, Auckland on Sunday February 15 2009. The concert will be the second ‘a day on the green’ event at this stunning winery, following the overwhelming success of the Joe Cocker concert in January this year.

Special kiwi guest support artists will be sultry songstress Hollie Smith and rising star Nathan King.

From their very first albums Picture Book (1985) and Men And Women (1987) to the juggernaut’s The New Flame (1989) and Stars (1991), which sat at the top of the UK charts for 19 weeks, to their last studio album Stay (2007), Simply Red’s classic hits have dominated Australasian charts, racking up more than one million album sales.

The Greatest Hits tour is set to thrill fans with a set list showcasing their amazing career including Money’s Too Tight To Mention, Holding Back The Years, The Right Thing, Stars, Fairground, If You Don’t Know Me By Now, Something Got Me Started, A New Flame and Sunrise.

The tour will celebrate the release of the band’s eagerly-anticipated 2CD Greatest Hits album and Greatest Hits DVD out early 2009 in NZ.

With Hucknall’s gorgeous vocals and irresistible stage charisma, Simply Red’s show-stopping concerts are part of the reason for the band’s longevity and enduring popularity.

Critically feted and publicly adored, New Zealand’s soul singer Hollie Smith and her six-piece band are to support Simply Red in Auckland. Her voice – deeply penetrating and achingly powerful – has that unique ability to draw in the surrounding air and replace it with something much more sensual, and those exquisite pipes have been compared to some of the best-loved vocal chords in music history. Smith and her Double Platinum selling debut album “Long Player” was awarded no less than 4 awards at the Vodafone NZ Awards 2007 including Top Female Vocalist, Best Aotearoa Roots Album, Breakthrough Artist and Producer awards.

Simply Red with special guest Hollie Smith - an unforgettable night of hits, classics and style under the stars at one of the most picturesque outdoor venues in the country!
