Simply Red will perform at Ischgl’s First Top of the Mountain Spring Concert

Simply Red, one of Britain’s most successful pop bands ever, will open the Spring Blanc, the new event Series in Ischgl, on 2 April 2022 – at the resort first Top of the Mountain Spring Concert.

The band and its vocalist Mick Hucknall will play on the legendary Ischgl Stage at the Top of the Mountain at Idalp at 2,300 meters above sea level, right in the heart of Silvretta Arena ski resort.

For many of us, spring is one of the best times for skiing at Silvretta Arena ski resort. With 90 percent of the Silvretta Arena’s ski runs being located at altitudes higher than 2,000 meters, the ski resort offers excellent snow reliability, pleasant temperatures, plenty of sunshine, and longer days. This allows ski fans to enjoy skiing up until May.

But if you will add a vast number of top-class events…are reasons enough to visit this internationally famous ski area.

The first Top of the Mountain Spring Concert will kick the new event series "Spring Blanc", a colorful program full of culinary delights and music on the slopes as well as unforgettable spring skiing.

The "Spring Blanc" will close with the classic "Top of the Mountain Closing Concert" on April 30 with Kings of Leon performing at the grand finale of the Ischgl ski season 2021-2022.

You should definitely come to Ischgl to experience Spring Blanc if you would like to celebrate the end of the 2022 ski season with a bang.

Simply Red follows in the footsteps of a galaxy of superstars who have entertained skiers and boarders in the Austrian resort's traditional Top of the Mountain gig. A long time ago, Ischgl decided to put its entire advertising and marketing budget into staging two massive concerts a year to open and close the winter season. Elton John was the first star to feature in the Tirolean resort's now-famous season-closing concerts, back in 1995. Since then the resort has hosted Rod Stewart, Bob Dylan, Sting, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Bon Jovi, Enrique Iglesias, Atomic Kitten, Peter Gabriel, The Corrs, Alanis Morissette, Lionel Richie, Pink, the Scissor Sisters, the Pussycat Dolls, Rihanna, Elton John again, Gabriella Cilmi, Leona Lewis, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry, Alicia Keys, Gossip, The Killers, Roxette, Mariah Carey, The Scorpions, Deep Purple, Nickelback, Robbie Williams, James Blunt, Thirty Seconds to Mars, The Beach Boys, PUR, Zucchero, Jason Derulo, and Lenny Kravitz.

The Simply Red live concert will take place in the ski area, on the Idalp, at 2,300 meters, and will start at 13.00. The concert admission is included in the ski ticket. The day ski pass for Ischgl-Samnaun is also the ticket to the concert and costs €90.00 per person on 2nd April 2022. The concert is included in all ski passes valid for 2 days or more.

The slopes are located at an altitude of between 2,000 and 2,872 meters making the ski resort Silvretta Arena in Tyrol the perfect winter sports region. The variety of slopes and ski routes offer an opportunity for everyone, from beginners to experts looking for challenging pistes. Eleven is the name of the longest piste with approximately 11 kilometers from the top of the ski resort in Greitspitz (2,872 meters) to Ischgl village (1,400 meters). From Ischgl, you can access the Silvretta Arena Ski Paradise, thanks to an alliance between two Companies (Silvretta Seilbahn AG and Bergbahnen Sammaun AG) and two ski resorts (Ischgl-Sammaun) from two different countries (Switzerland-Austria).

Simply Red, led by Mick Hucknall, delivers an emotional soundtrack with an infectious blend of soul and pop and elegant, sensitive ballads, and is one of the most popular groups of the British pop era. Over 100 single and album chart successes with a combined circulation of more than 60 million, dozens of gold and platinum awards, and 1,500 concerts in front of more than 12 million fans mark their amazing career. The breakthrough came in 1985 with their debut album "Picture Book" and the single "Money's Too Tight (To Mention)." Their successful interpretation of the song "If you don't know me by now" is also unforgotten. Mick Hucknall has been the lynchpin of Simply Red as singer, songwriter, and bandleader since its beginnings in 1985, supported by his long-time saxophonist Ian Kirkham. The acclaimed band has played in its current formation since 2003.
