"SIMPLE MINDS LIVE IN DENVER ..on stage @ 8pm
Paul Italiano was a DJ - ing kid in Denver, back in those day when Simple Minds were first releasing music and touring North America. New Gold Dream, and then Sparkle In The Rain were his initial experience of our music, leading him to see SM live at the world famous Red Rocks, Colorado, in 1984.
Soon after Paul was working his way back through our earlier work including Sons And Fascination, and Empires and Dance. Sooner again Paul and Pam ( who would later get married) decided to open a store - selling some clothes that Pam made.
They then started focusing selling shoes with a rock n' roll vibe. And although they started with almost no money, they soon had all manner of people beating a path to their door. A success story right there!
All these years later Vixens + Angels is still going strong - perhaps one of the last great independents stores.
Paul loves his music still, that was clear when we visited his store today.
You can feel the love he has for music, fashion, and his city - Denver. That was apparent as we chatted while driving through the new cityscape that characterises Denver.
I certainly hope Simple Minds can equally show our love for what we do - tonight at the Paramount in Denver.
We hope that is the case with every show we do.
Thanks to Paul and Pam. Thanks to all who are coming to see Simple Minds tonight in Denver."
