Midge Ure on tour
Posted: 27 Apr 2015
Ure has teamed up with two talented musicians to go out on the road as an
acoustic three-piece band.
Breathe Again tour – so called because Midge is revisiting his album Breathe 20
years after its launch – lands at the Sage Gateshead on 27 June.
trio will play all the tracks from Breathe as well as some of Midge’s former
hits, this time given a new lease of life with an acoustic flavour.
Stacey and Jospeh O’Keele from the band India Electric Co join Midge and bring
an array of instruments including violin and mandolin into the mix.
pair proved to be such a successful support act that Midge asked them on board
for the tour.
says: “I’ve been out and about on my own for the last few years, so I’m looking
forward to sharing the stage.”
will the obvious usual suspect – Vienna – be given an airing?
the audience expect Vienna, but I change everything to suit the format of the
concert, so it will be different from the original recording,” says Midge.
course I’m proud of Vienna – it was something that changed my life overnight.”
