Simply Red - Live at Haydock Park (1999)

On August 22nd 1999 Simply Red performed a spectacular open air concert in Manchester’s Haydock Park. The concert paid tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson, one of the greatest football managers of all-time as part of his Testimonial Year, and took place on the very same day Manchester United won the FA cup final against Newcastle. The concert was one of the most sought-after tickets of 99, and featured never-before-heard tracks from Simply Red. The band were introduced by Sir Alex himself, and the show featured appearances by legendary Manchester United players including Ryan Giggs.

The concert was filmed for TV but never released in any format. For the first time you can now watch the full show online in the best quality footage it has ever been viewed in!
