Midge Ure has a career that spans over 40 years – from his pop band beginnings, almost joining the Sex Pistols, the electronic ground-breaking work with Visage, via the mainstream success of Ultravox to the twists and turns of his solo releases.

In 2015, Midge Ure and semi-acoustic duo, India Electric Company successfully performed the ‘Breathe Again’ show across the UK and Europe as a 20th anniversary retrospective. It was the first time Midge featured an album in its entirety and proved a successful format!

Midge now plans to touch on the broad reach of his recorded output in a new ‘Something From Everything’ show, covering at least one song from every album he has released from Rich Kids in 1977, via Visage and Ultravox, to his solo albums such as the Gift, Pure and Answers To Nothing.

Once again utilising the three-piece format which adds texture and depth to the material, this time Joseph O’Keefe will be adding keyboards to the mixture providing a more electronic nature to some of the songs.

This will be an evening of both hits and rare gems from Midge’s back catalogue, an intimate evening with a true musical icon.

Please note, this is an all standing event.
