🎶 Midge Ure
February 5 @ 8:00 pm - February 6 @ 8:00 pm
The DEETS:James “Midge” Ure launched his professional music career with a Glasgow-based group, Salvation, which later on transformed into the bubblegum band, Slik in 1974. Not happy with the change in the band’s style, Ure left the band to join a punk-pop group, the Rich Kids. Led by former Sex Pistol bassist Glen Matlock, the Rich Kids released only one album before breaking up in 1978. Ure spent a brief stint with the Misfits before forming Visage with Steve Strange and Rusty Egan. Ure left Visage to replace Gary Moore, who abandoned Thin Lizzy in the middle of a tour. After the tour was completed, Ure met his end of the bargain to join Ultravox in 1980, which turned out to be a stellar move. Ure helped launch Ultravox into mainstream success. Ure went on to also release a solo single in 1982, a cover of the Walker Brothers’ hit, No Regrets, which landed a spot on the U.K. Top Ten. Ure continues to perform his own songs, along with popular Ultravox songs, in concerts both solo, acoustic and with a band.
