We are delighted that Simply Red and The Brand New Heavies will be playing the first of 5 nights of music at Blenheim Palace from 15 - 19 June 2022. They join David Gray, UB40, Simple Minds and Lionel Richie to complete the line up for Nocturne Live 2022.
Simply Red are one of the best-selling British bands of all time. They ruled the airwaves and the charts across Britain and Europe with their seminal album “Stars” selling more than any other record for two years running. Hits like “If You Don’t Know Me By Now” and “Holding Back The Years” helped to cement Simply Red’s place as one of the most important British bands.
Shortly following the announcement of Simply Red for Nocturne Live 2022 the festival passed the milestone of 150,000 total tickets sold since its launch.
Joining Simply Red will be The Brand New Heavies, pioneers of the Acid Jazz and Brit-Funk underground scenes in the UK. Marisha Wallace will open the event.
