Simply Red live in Berlin 2022 - Was Fans wissen müssen
Die Band Simply Red spielt am 24. November 2022 ein Konzert in Berlin. Alle wichtigen Fragen und Antworten zur Show.
Die Band Simply Red kommt am 24. November 2022 im Rahmen ihrer aktuellen Tour nach Berlin. Im Gepäck haben die Briten Songs aus ihrem neuen Album "Blue Eyed Soul" und natürlich eine Auswahl ihrer größten Hits wie "Stars", "Holding Back The Years", "Fairground" oder "Money's Too Tight (To Mention)".
Mick Hucknall ist seit den Anfängen 1985 als Sänger, Songschreiber und Bandleader Dreh- und Angelpunkt von Simply Red, unterstützt durch seinen langjährigen Saxophonisten Ian Kirkham. Die gefeierte Band spielt seit 2003 in der jetzigen Formation.
Corona: Ursprünglicher Termin musste verschoben werden

Der Veranstalter wandte sich 2021 an die Fans: "Simply Red haben ihre europäische Tournee um ein Jahr verschoben. Die Konzerte in Deutschland und in Zürich finden nunmehr im November 2022 statt." Auch Frontmann Mick Hucknall wandte sich an seine Fans: „Ich habe die meiste Zeit meines Lebens damit verbracht, für mein Publikum zu singen. Es fühlt sich so seltsam an, dies derzeit nicht tun zu können. Ich vermisse es so sehr und es wird eine wundervolle Inspiration sein, wenn die Fans wieder ihre Bands erleben können.“

Germany: Simply Red to Perform in Ten Cities
Simply Red were going to appear on countless stages all over Europe in late 2020. Corona messed up the endeavor. Then, it was supposed to be 2021, but the virus disagreed again. Now, there are new dates.
Berlin, January 23rd, 2022. Update: August 23rd, 2022 (The Berlin Spectator) — In 1977, The Frantic Elevators were founded. This Punk band delivered tunes that pretty much took the opposite approach of Simply Red. Why would this matter at all? Because a man named Mick Hucknall was the front man of The Frantic Elevators before he founded the other band in 1985.
The new act he established with Elliot Rashman in 1985 was named after the color of Hucknall’s hair. But ‘Red’ was not enough, to his opinion. That is why he added the word ‘Simply’. The rest is history. Simply Red became Hucknall’s life project. Hardly any band on the face of the Earth sells 50 million albums. But they did.
What Simply Red delivered had absolutely nothing to do with aggressive or depressive Punk. High-quality Pop music with Soul and Funk elements would be an accurate description of their music. In the mid-1980s, it was about time for some uplifting sounds when Simply Red came along.
‘Rhythms’ magazine accurately called Mick Hucknall “one of the truly great blue-eyed Soul singers” many years ago. Apart from him, there are not many artists who fit that description. Singers like Van Morrison, Boz Scaggs, Bobby Caldwell, Gino Vannelli or David Clayton Thomas, all of whom delivered before Hucknall did, may be part of his category, but took different approaches and do not sound like him. Nobody does.
Simply Red’s first album ‘Picture Book’ made landfall in 1985, with hits like ‘Holding Back the Years’, ‘Money’s Too Tight to Mention’ and ‘Look at You Now’. Some of the next recordings were even more successful. Of course, the group started touring like crazy and sold out most venues because they were brilliant, and due to the fact that Simply Red appealed to regular Pop fans and Soul lovers alike, meaning their audiences consisted of both radio listeners and quality music folks.
‘Blue Eyed Soul’ is Simply Red’s 12th album. It was released in the summer of 2019, nine years after the band was disbanded, and four years after it was re-formed. On this latest recording, Mick Hucknall and the band took the James Brown approach (‘Thinking of You’) and they came up with good Soul ballads like ‘Sweet Child’.
All in all, the latest album might be a little sterile from the perspective of die-hard Soul and Funk lovers like the author of these lines. A more diplomatic way of putting it would be to say the latest album takes a contemporary approach. But Mick Hucknall does a great job, as he always has. His voice saves the album. He is not just Simply Red, but simply great.
The Entire Continent
It gets better: Simply Red are alive and kicking. They are coming to Austria, Germany and Switzerland. In fact, they are going everywhere. First, it is their home turf. Has anyone ever performed at this many venues in the United Kingdom during one tour? We just counted 33 of them, some of which they will “do” twice in a row. Their U.K. tour is about to commence on February 2nd, 2022. Guess what: New dates in mainland Europe were listed too, after Corona messed up the band’s first few attempts to get out there and perform.
On November 6th, 2022, none other than Mick Hucknall and his band will be hitting the stage at the Zenith in Paris. The tour will take them via Luxembourg and Amsterdam to Hamburg, where the travel party will be arriving and performing on November 14th. Of course they will not play at some tiny, smoke-filled pub in some basement in the city’s ‘Kiez’, but at Barclay Card Area. Hey, this is Simply Red, remember? Frankfurt, Hanover and Dortmund are next before they reach Cologne and Mannheim.
More German dates? Sure, no problem. Here we go: Once they are done in Zurich, this beautiful city in neighboring Switzerland, the band will be expected in Berlin, the city of cities, on November 24th, 2022. How does Stuttgart sound? Yes, they will be there too. Leipzig and Munich are listed on the touring plan. So are Vienna, Bratislava, Graz, Budapest, Lodz, Antwerp, Copenhagen, Rome, Padova and Milan. In short: There does not seem to be a single stage they will not hit on this nice continent. Have a good tour, blokes.
The entire tour plan can be accessed on Simply Red’s website . Tickets for most gigs in the German-speaking world (as of January 24th, 2022, Graz and Zurich were not included) are available here .

One of the most famous nightclubs is Berghain but there are plenty of other and more unique nightlife places to visit.

When you’re planning a trip to Berlin, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the seasons and get an idea of when to visit Berlin!
The best time to visit the city is between May and October when Berlin is bathed in sunshine and has the perfect weather for checking out the many Berlin attractions. May brings along the blooming of cherry blossoms and is one of the most beautiful months to visit. Keep in mind that many people travel at that time, so it’s important to book your accommodation ahead. Luckily, there are plenty of amazing hostels in Berlin , so you’ll almost always find a comfy place to rest your head.
August and September are especially pleasant months, with the International Berlin Beer Festival as well as the famous Lollapalooza music festival where some epic performances take place! However, the middle of summer does get very humid, so heading to Berlin in early spring or late summer to early autumn is also a fantastic choice!
High season in Berlin is between mid-June to August, during Oktoberfest and, of course, the Christmas season when Berlin is lit in exquisite lights and filled with festivals. You can also experience the city’s legendary Christmas markets during December!
January can get some stunning snow, which makes Berlin even more dreamy and there are some fantastic New Year’s celebrations including food, drinks, and live music along Berlin’s Party Mile.
For the most budget-friendly time to visit, early June is quiet and accommodation prices decrease, while the winter months of November to March are pretty cold and overcast but have some fantastic deals!
It’s no surprise that Berlin is a pretty big city with loads of interesting neighbourhoods. Luckily, you can find a super well developed public transport network spread throughout all parts of the city. The public transport here also makes taking one of the many day trips from Berlin super easy too.
To put that into numbers for you, there are 120 kilometres of tram lines, 473 kilometres of railway track, and more navigable waterways than Amsterdam, Stockholm and even Venice – put together! And Berlin makes good use of it all. Whether it’s by tram, S-Bahn, subway or simple bus system, you can get from A to B within no time.
The public transport in Berlin is straightforward, clean and reliable. It’s also pretty affordable, especially if you opt for taking the bus.
Another great way to get around is to rent a bicycle. There are bike stations spread throughout the city, the most popular ones are Nextbike and Donkey Republic. Both of them are rentable by app which makes it super handy and efficient.
The German capital has one of the highest rates of bicycle commuting in the world, with an average of 710 bicycles owned per 1,000 Berliners. There are plenty of bike paths and dedicated cycle lanes — in fact, there are 620 kilometres of them.
Coming prepared is one of the most important parts of travelling, no matter where you want to go.
Although it’s the largest and most populated city in Germany, Berlin is generally quite safe. However, when you’re traveling to a new city, especially one as large as this, it’s a good idea to follow some tried and tested safety tips .
- Be particularly vigilant in touristy areas like the Kurfürstendamm and Gölitzer Park.
- Public transport is also a hotspot for petty crime, so hold tight to your belongings for any journeys you take.
- It is generally quite safe to walk around popular areas at night, but keep an eye out for dodgy characters.
As you are likely traveling in a foreign country, ensure you have access to emergency numbers in case of an accident or problem. It’s also always a good idea to have travel insurance in the event of a problem. To enjoy your Berlin itinerary to the fullest, keep these travel tips in mind and enjoy safe travels!
ALWAYS sort out your backpacker insurance before your trip. There’s plenty to choose from in that department, but a good place to start is Safety Wing .

Vodka Museum Tour with transport (excursion only)
Lena, our guide in Moscow was excellent. She was very knowledgable and could answer any question we had for her. We liked that she could pick up on our interests and take us places we might not have thought of to go. When we realized that one of the places we had chosen to see would probably not be that interesting to us, she was able to arrange entry to the Diamond Fund and the Armoury for us. Riding the Metro with Lena was a real adventure and a lot of fun. In Saint Petersburg we found Anna well versed in the history of the Tsars and in the Hermitage collection. Arkady in Veliky Novgorod was a very good guide and answered all of our questions with ease. Novgorod was perhaps a long way to go for a day trip, but we did enjoy it. Vasily was a great driver to have and kept us safe with good humour and skill. We enjoyed ourselves so much, my daughter says she is already planning to return. We would both have no hesistation to recommend ExpresstoRussia to anyone we know.
Just wanted to let you know that My grandson Bruno and I couldn´t have been more pleased with our week in Moscow (6/15 - 6/21). We were absolutely enchanted with the whole experience, including getting lost a couple of times in the Metro during our free time. Although both our guides (both Eleanas) were excellent, I would particularly commend the first one (she took us to the Tatiakov, the KGB tour, and to that beautiful cemetery where so many great Russian artists, authors, composers, musicians, militarists, and politicians are buried). Her knowledge is encyclopedic; and her understanding of today´s Russia as a product of its past was, for us, truly enlightening. I will be taking another tour in Russia, with my wife, within the next two or three years. I will be in touch with you when the time comes. Meanwhile, I will refer you to other potential visitors to Russia as I meet them.

Moscow, a City Like No Other
Moscow is Russia’s largest city with a population of between 12 and 13 million. It is also Europe’s largest city and when you visit Moscow, you can feel it. The layout and architecture of the city is eclectic, ranging from crooked, ancient streets and alleyways to wide, bustling boulevards, from medieval churches to Stalin skyscrapers and to modern, glass buildings towering over everything and of course in the center of it all is the Kremlin and the magnificent Red Square. Moscow is also home to a fantastic, efficient and very beautiful metro system – each station having its own special design. In fact, Express to Russia’s Moscow metro tours and excursions are some of our most popular attractions that we offer. On our Moscow tours, you will see this and more.
Moscow Tours centering on Russian History
Moscow has a long and interesting history and has been the capital of Russia in many of its different iterations – capital of the Grand Duchy of Moscow , the Russian Empire and of course the Soviet Union (who could ever forget the Soviet Union?). Moscow, was founded in the 12th century by Prince Yuri Dolgaruki (Yuri of the long arms – he really did have long arms!). From that time on, it was home to the Russian Tsars until Peter the Great moved the capital to St. Petersburg in 1703. The city has survived invasions and sieges from the Mongols, the Tartars, the Poles, Lithuanians and Napoleon but has always persevered. Our Moscow tours will enlighten you on this great history and give you insights into Muscovites and their unique culture. Our Moscow tours show you what the city is like today but also brings to life the past. Moscow never seems to sleep and is bursting with energy. A Moscow tour with Express to Russia is truly the best way of getting to know Russia’s largest and most vibrant city.
Frequently Asked Questions From Our Travelers
What is the best time to visit moscow.
Any time of year is fine depending on what you plan to do. Summertime is pleasantly warm, ideal for exploring the city and its vibrant atmosphere, but Moscow will be much busier and accommodation is more expensive. Winter can be quite cold but beautiful nonetheless, and this is unproblematic if you intend to spend most of your trip in museums and galleries. There are also various festivals and events organised throughout the year. For more information about the best time to visit, read our guide
How many days are enough in Moscow?
If you plan your itinerary strategically and aren’t averse to a packed schedule, you can cover Moscow’s main sights over a long weekend. Most popular attractions are in the city centre, and the Moscow Metro allows you to cover much ground in a small amount of time. Ensure that your accommodation is fairly central and book tickets in advance, so that you can make the most of your days. For an informative and well-organised day out, check out our Moscow day tours with options to suit all interests.
Do they speak English in Moscow?
As Russia’s capital city, tourists are well accommodated in Moscow. There should be English-speaking staff in restaurants, bars, hotels, shops and attractions in tourist hotspots, and there are also English-speaking tourist police. Transport services have English translations on their maps and English announcements via intercom; alternatively, order taxis from the Yandex Taxi app (Russian Uber), though it’s unlikely that your taxi driver will speak English. If you get stuck and cannot communicate, it’s fine to use Google Translate.
Is it safe to travel to Moscow?
It is no less safe to travel to Moscow than to any European city if you exercise common sense and look after your belongings. As with every city some regions can be more unsavoury than others, but no tourist attractions are located there. The traffic in Moscow is notorious, so exercise caution when crossing roads. Do not take unlicensed taxis; book in advance or take public transport, which is widespread and perfectly safe. If you encounter any problems, look for the special tourist police who can help you. For more information, read our guide about staying safe in Russia .
