Simply Red have announced as concert at Ischgl in the Austrian Tirol on April 2nd.
Although famous for its annual Top of the Mountain Concerts at the very end of the resort’s long season, usually the first weekend of May which has seen many global superstars perform over the decades, this gig is part of a new “Spring Blanc” event series and billed as the first “Top of the Mountain Spring Concert” beginning four weeks of festivities through the final month of the season. Concert admission is included for free in the day ski pass.
“Spring-like temperatures, perfectly groomed pistes, untouched powder runs and buttery soft firm snow: In spring, the ski season in Ischgl shows its best side and really picks up speed once again, as due to the Silvretta Arenas special altitude – 90 percent of its pistes are above 2,000 meters – ski fun is guaranteed here until the beginning of May,” a spokesperson for Ischgl commented, adding,
“This year, guests can expect a colourful program full of culinary delights and music on the slopes with the new event series “Spring Blanc” as well as unforgettable spring skiing.”
The first Top of the Mountain Spring Concert will kick things off on April 2, 2022, with Simply Red, one of the most successful English bands, performing on the famous “Ischgl Stage” high on the slopes.
Still fronted by Mick Hucknall, Simply Red are one of the most popular groups in British pop with sales of more than 60 million, dozens of gold and platinum awards and over 1,500 concerts in front of more than 12 million fans over their nearly four decade long career.
The live concert will take place on the piste, open air on the Idalp, located at 2,300 meters above sea level, and will start at 13.00. The concert admission is included in the ski ticket.
