August 23, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Midge Ure & Paul Young ‘Soundtrack of Your Life’ Tour
Ultravox’s Midge Ure and UK’s King of Blue Eyed Soul Paul Young perform their hits on the same stage. Two multi-platinum artists, one night!
Scottish guitarist, singer, keyboard player, and songwriter born October 10, 1953 in Cambuslang, Lanarkshire, Scotland.
Ure enjoyed particular success in the 1970s and ’80s in bands including Slik, Thin Lizzy, Rich Kids and Visage, and most notably as frontman of Ultravox. In 1984, Ure co-wrote and produced the charity single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”, which has sold 3.7 million copies in the UK. The song is the second highest selling single in UK chart history. Ure co-organised Band Aid, Live Aid, and Live 8 with Bob Geldof. Ure acts as trustee for the charity, and serves as ambassador for Save the Children.
Ure is the producer and writer of several other synthpop/new wave hit singles of the 1980s, including “Fade to Grey” (1980) by Visage and the Ultravox signature songs “Vienna” (1980) and “Dancing with Tears in My Eyes” (1984). Ure achieved his first UK top 10 solo hit in 1982 with “No Regrets”. In 1985, his solo debut album The Gift reached number two in the UK Albums Chart and yielded the UK number one single, “If I Was”. Ure also co-wrote Phil Lynott’s “Yellow Pearl”, which served as the theme of Top of the Pops for much of the 1980s.
Pop-soul singer, born January 17, 1956, Luton, England. Started out in ‘Kool Kat & The Kool Kats’ before joining Streetband who had the quirky hit ‘Toast’. He then formed The Q Tips in 1979 performing over 700 concerts in the 3 years until going solo in 1982. It was third time lucky as the cover of Marvin Gaye’s “Wherever I Lay My Hat” hit No.1 in 1983, which was followed by the album “No Parlez” and established Paul with worldwide success.
