Simple Minds have announced that they are currently rehearsing material from their first five albums for a 2012 tour.

The hugely influential Scottish post punk band turned stadium rockers will be selecting material solely from the albums Life In A Day, Real To Real Cacophony, Empires And Dance, Sons And Fascination/Sister Feelings Call and New Gold Dream (81, 82, 83, 84).

Speaking about the move, frontman Jim Kerr said: "This is the set that so many who appreciate Simple Minds have been begging us to play and finally this is that one-off chance to see it.”
