Simple Plan announce Camden takeover

Simple Plan

Story by Jack Foley

CANADIAN rockers Simple Plan are set to take over Camden Town in London as they play three shows in one day on January 27, 2008.

Kicking off proceedings at The Barfly, the band will then head to The Underworld before ending their triple gig-fest at The Electric Ballroom.

Treating fans at the Barfly to a 30 minute set of songs taken from their 2002 debut smash No Pads, No Helmets… Just Balls, the band will then give 2004’s Still Not Getting Any the unplugged treatment with an acoustic set at the Underworld.

The closing show at the Electric Ballroom will be a full-on, plugged-in electric performance with support.

Simple Plan have developed a fierce reputation for explosive live sets that are driven by a contagious mix of irresistible hits and high energy crowd interaction.

The Camden shows mark the band’s first UK dates since a triumphant sell-out tour in 2006, which included two shows at London’s Astoria.

Simple Plan have sold in excess of 7 million records worldwide and will return with their eponymous album on February 18, 2008 through Lava/Atlantic Records.

The album is preceded by the single When I’m Gone on February 4 (physical release February 11).

Simple Plan sees the irrepressible quintet teaming up with a truly unique line-up of production talent, including Dave Fortman (Evanescence, Mudvayne), Danjahandz (T.I., Timbaland, Justin Timberlake), and Max Martin (Kelly Clarkson, Avril Lavigne).
