Midge Ure Announces Solo Us Tour For January 2013 - The First In A Decade!

November 26th, 2012 -  New York, NY - Grammy Winner Midge Ure has announced plans for a solo US tour in January 2013 which will be the first time he performs in the US in a decade.  The tour kicks off in Long Island New York on the 8th of January with the only acoustic show on the trek and winds up on the west coast in LA on January 26th. The last tour Midge did across the US was all acoustic in 2001 - this will also be the first tour with a full band since 1985. Right The Stars will be opening the shows and will also provide backing for Midge Ure.  

Midge Ure has an impressive back catalogue of his own fronting the groundbreaking electrorock band Ultravox as well as being a member of such noteable bands as Visage and Thin Lizzy in addition to Band Aid where he produced and co wrote the smash charity single 'Do They Know Its Christmas'. He was also one of the principle creators of Live Aid and Live 8 along with Bob Geldof.  Ure has spent most of his career touring the globe most recently with Ultravox who reformed in 2009 as well as some solo shows and the notable role of MD for the Princes Trust at the Royal Albert Hall with a cast of the usual suspects including Eric Clapton, Phil Collins and Mark King. 

Besides preparing for a US tour, Midge has been keeping very busy with the recent release of Ultravox's album entitled Brilliant (their first since 1986), as well as an ebook release of his highly acclaimed Autobiography If I Was due out 2013.  Fans can expect Ure's solo material, perhaps a few Ultravox tunes as well as a few surprises Midhe is also working on his next solo album. 

Midge Ure is available for interviews and we have review tickets available.
