We review the modelling of multiple interactions in the event generator Herwig++ and study implications of recent tuning efforts to Tevatron and LHC data. A crucial ingredient to a successful description of minimum bias and underlying event observables is a model for colour reconnection. Improvements to this model inspired by statistical physics are presented.
