Simply Red @ le Zénith, Paris - November 6th, 2022

Blue-eyed, red-haired soul outfit Simply Red are celebrating 40 years of hits by embarking on a world tour, focusing wisely on their many hits: cover songs like If You Don't Know Me By Now or It's Only Love Doing Its Thing, and originals like Fairground or Stars.

Mick Hucknall, who, for all intents and purposes IS Simply Red, still possesses an impossibly silky smooth voice. It's like age has no grip on the man. His backing band is top notch and the light show is perfect. Some would argue that everything is a little too perfect, and that the whole thing, paradoxically, lacks a little soul. Such is there price of perfection.
