“We were all happy with the first gig of the tour last night in Montereau. (Well organised festival, congrats.) Weather was amazingly good, audience helped us immensely – thank you. New songs felt good also – Imagination can and will get much better. Blindfolded had an almost perfect debut. Went overnight direct to Netherlands in Holland. Met some fans who had travelled some distance to see us here. Thank you – all of you! We will do our best tonight. Now we have started, we just want to play.” – Jim, 8th June 2014

NEW SONG FROM SIMPLE MINDS ‘BLINDFOLDED’ Kerr/Burchill

Somewhere out there, darkened cellar
There’s game called “Mystery”
There is a man, he stands blindfolded, that’s his world, you’ll never see.
Somewhere out there, you’ll never see
Somewhere out there, a girl called Sugar, dreams of bringing her fortune in
But every night she stands blindfolded, that’s the way it’s all been
Somewhere out there, you’ll never see
It’s somewhere out there, you’ll never see

The Saints are singing now, so we’ll feel better
The Saints are looking down, so we must know
The Saints won’t ever get to read this letter
Because the Saints became blindfolded long ago

Somewhere out there, in the desert
There’s a game called Liberty
There is a kid, who stands blindfolded, that his world, you’ll never see
Somewhere out there, a darkened cellar
There’s game called “Mystery”
There’s a man who stands blindfolded, that’s his world, you’ll never see.
Somewhere out there, you’ll never see

The Saints are singing now, so we’ll feel better
The Saints are looking down, so we must know
The Saints won’t ever get to read this letter
Because the Saints became blindfolded long ago
The Saints are singing now, so we’ll feel better
The Saints are looking down, so you must know
The Saints won’t ever get to read this letter
Because the Saints became blindfolded long ago

It’s somewhere out there, you’ll never see
It’s somewhere out there, you’ll never see
Somewhere out there, you’ll never see
Somewhere out there, Somewhere out there,
You’ll never see
