Midge Ure has shape shifted his way through the UK music scene for 35+ years.0
From prototype boy band with Slik, through electronic pioneer with Visage, rock guitarist
with Thin Lizzy, chart topper with Ultravox and his solo career, to charity fund raiser with Band Aid…
Ure has adapted to the ebb and flow of his career performing with large bands, 3 piece
power trio’s, and his solo acoustic shows with which he sticks to his mantra that a good
song can be stripped down to its basics and still stand close inspection.
Midge’s shows in 2013 will reflect as ever his full career, including solo songs such as If I Was, and Ultravox songs from Vienna up to new songs from the brand new Ultravox
CD "Brilliant" released in May 2012

"Quality compositions, musicianship & passion in equal measure…delightfully strong" (Acoustic Magazine)
‘On Hire’ draws from their Devonshire acoustic routes, blended with Parisian Café violins & which vortexes around a supple joining of voice and instruments and this show forms part of their UK and European Tour.
