Midge Ure

Midge Ure and India Electric Co
Breathe Again
 
In 1995, Midge delivered his fourth solo album, Breathe, to BMG just 10 years after the phenomenal successes of Band Aid and Live Aid. Always one to ring the changes, this album had a very Celtic feel with a plethora of acoustic instruments from uilleann pipes to mandolins and accordions alongside Midge’s trademark soaring electric guitar riffs. The title track was picked up by Swatch watches and headed their most successful advertising campaign ever. The album went triple platinum and was a massive success all over Europe.
 
After the successful reformation of Ultravox in 2009, Midge feels it's time to revisit his Celtic roots, and will perform Breathe in its entirety for the first time in 2015. Ably accompanied by the two musicians from India Electric Co, recreating the nature of the album. Of course, he will also play a selection of his other hits like Vienna, Dancing with Tears in My Eyes, Fade to Grey and If I Was, as well as songs from his recently released album Fragile, which was Radio 2 playlisted  - it's what audiences, quite rightly, expect.....
