Event Details

The legendary MIDGE URE will return to Australia in April to perform five shows in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Newcastle.

He's the voice of Ultravox and co-writer of the historic, blockbuster hit "Do They Know It's Christmas?" (in collaboration with Bob Geldof). The legendary MIDGE URE has been touring Europe and receiving standing ovations for his one-man acoustic concerts, mesmerising audiences with intimate versions of his cherished hits from Ultravox, Visage and his solo career. It is in this mode, Australian fans will be treated to a rare, up-close-and-personal experience with Midge Ure.

Scottish-born Ure has been fearlessly innovative over the years - through creative production and songs like Fade to Grey (Visage), Vienna and Dancing With Tears in My Eyes (Ultravox) and his solo gems including "If I Was" and "No Regrets" - all of which will be performed in stripped back form ... just the man himself, his guitar and THAT voice.

Ultravox was a major influence on the new romantic and electro-pop movements of the early '80s, and continue to be so today. Their successful trademark was combining Midge's powerful guitar riffs with sweeping synthesiser motifs and state-of-the-art visuals.

Ure's 1984 co-songwriting effort with Bob Geldof, 'Do They Know It's Christmas' was a heartfelt contribution to Ethiopian famine relief, and a worldwide fundraising phenomenon resonating stronger than ever in Christmas 2014, when the song reached the No. 1 chart position in 65 countries with a new version and revised lyrics to help fund the fight against the Ebola virus.
