The If You Don’t Know Me by Now hit-makers are returning tomorrow night…

Legendary band Simply Red are to perform at the Coca-Cola Arena this Friday, June 9. Since 1985, the British band has released a string of huge hits, including If You Don’t Know Me by NowMoney’s Too Tight to Mention, and Holding Back the Years.

Dubai fans can catch Mike Hucknall and his crew on June 9, who are the first name on the line up for the first ever World Padel League. The tournament will be held from June 8 to 11 at Coca-Cola Arena. We’re yet to hear about who else will be on the line-up, but will be sure to update you as we find out.

Simply Red were last in Dubai 20 years ago, so this is an exciting moment for fans, who are sure to enjoy listening to the band live in June. The soul and pop band are loved world-over for their smooth, easy-listening sounds and catchy melodies.
