Simple Minds & Devo - A Day on the Green

Bimbadgen Winery - Saturday 8th December

They defined a generation, are revered by critics and adored by fans.  In an epic career spanning 30 years and more than 60 million albums sold, Simple Minds travelled from the streets of Glasgow to become one of the world’s biggest bands with a musical majesty that still inspires awe.

Devo’s pioneering sound, style and philosophy had a profound effect on the new wave movement.  Influential, subversive and downright entertaining, Devo’s cult status quickly spread to the mainstream.

In what promises to be one of the most captivating tours of the year, Simple Minds and Devo will perform nationally later this year, including a day on the green at Bimbadgen Winery on Saturday December 8.  

Joining them, and adding more highlights to savour, will be one of Australia’s finest, the church and eclectic 80s popsters Models, led by Sean Kelly. 

The tour is the first announcement of the next a day on the green season, the event’s 12th year and one that will see a landmark 300th concert. 

More than two million Australians have enjoyed the a day on the green experience, and with another bumper season planned at wineries around the country, a huge member’s database and universal acclaim from both the artists and media,  the event continues to go from strength to strength.

Simple Minds, Devo, the church and Models all in one night – now that’s what we call a concert not to be missed!
