Midge Ure, Paul Young team up for summer jaunt

Grammy and Brit Award-winning musician Midge Ure (pictured right) returns to North America this summer on a co-headline tour with fellow Brit, Paul Young.

The first leg of the 'Soundtrack of your Life' Tour will hit Texas, the Midwest and Northeast with more to be announced including a second leg hitting the west coast in August.

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 are 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 also recently released an album of orchestrated versions of Ultravox hits and Midge Ure classics including ‘Vienna’, ‘Dancing with Tears in My Eyes’, and ‘If I Was’ via BMG last December.

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.
