Grammy and Brit Award winning musician Midge Ure will return to North America on a co-headline tour with old friend, and fellow Brit, Paul Young. The second leg of the ‘Soundtrack of your Life’ Tour will hit the west coast starting in August, down through Texas ending up in the southeast mid September.
Midge Ure will be performing Ultravox, Visage and solo material as well as playing songs from his highly acclaimed album Fragile, released in 2014. Listen here via Billboard Magazine. There will be a handful of solo acoustic dates for Midge but the rest of the tour is very much plugged in, featuring Ure on electric guitar and synthesizer recalling the groundbreaking, innovative sound he is known for. Ure’s most recent release Orchestrated, an album of re-worked versions of Ultravox hits and Midge Ure classics including ‘Vienna’, ‘Dancing with Tears in My Eyes’, and ‘If I Was’ was released in N. America on June 8th via BMG.
Paul Young will be performing songs from his chart topping catalogue spanning 4 decades including the smash hits “Come Back & Stay” “Every Time You Go Away.” and, “What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted” as well as tracks from his latest album Good Times, released in 2016.
