Grand Slam tour will see the two iconic groups joined by special guest KT Tunstall for a run of shows in August and September.
Simple Minds have just released their 18th studio album, Walk Between Worlds, and will perform songs from that record, plus classics like '(Don't You) Forget About Me' and 'Alive and Kicking'.
Led by Chrissie Hynde, The Pretenders released their 10th studio album, Alone, in 2016, and will surely dig out hits like 'Brass In Pocket' for the Grand Slam tour.
