To mark his 70th birthday and to celebrate a life in music, Midge Ure will headline a one-night-only concert at the Royal Albert Hall on 4th October 2023. The evening will see the incomparable music legend play the hits that have soundtracked lives across generations.
A global star who has received multiple Ivor Novello, Grammy and BASCAP awards along with a flotilla of gold and platinum records, really needs very little introduction. Musical success is seldom measured in time spans of more than a few years, if not Andy Warhol's often quoted "fifteen minutes", so the fact that by the time Midge's single ‘If I Was’ went to number one in 1985, he had already crammed several musical lifetimes into a 10 year professional career speaks volumes. Silk, The Rich Kids, Thin Lizzy, Visage, Ultravox and of course the most famous one-off group in musical history, Band Aid, had by then all had the guiding hand of his musical navigation.
