I always feel a bit sorry for Midge Ure because Saint Bob took all his glory! Geldof gets all the plaudits for Band Aid whilst Midge has to go around being called 'Midge' for the rest of his life. That is hardly fair recompense. Not that Midge cares about that, though, because he is far too nice.
This tour will revolve around two tunes that Midge helped to make in the 1980s — Visage's Fade To Grey and Vienna by Ultravox. Both of them were global hits, and Vienna especially helped to launch Midge into the stratosphere.
Now he's wondering if we can face the next decade with the same optimism that we entered the 1980s. Will there be another cultural moment that will change music, fashion and society forever? (Hey, that's a bit political Midge!)
This show will feature both Midge Ure and the Band Electronica, playing songs from their Visage and Vienna albums.
