STOP PRESS

New album available for pre-order.

Midge has been working on this new album for the last 18 months in between our normal heavy gigging schedule! A collaboration with Ty Unwin has produced a collection of rich, lush, filmic soundscape versions of some of his classic songs - a mixture of solo material, Ultravox and a new track, Ordinary Man.

Here's a link to a video of Midge talking about the recording process

The album will be released on Dec 1st by BMG, but by arrangement with Townsend Records, it is possible to pre order a copy, which should arrive on the date of release. The clever bit is these orders count towards chart position on the week of release, so as an added incentive they will be including a signed set list from the current Band Electronica tour and an exclusive laminate. This special package will be available either from the merchandise stall on tour, or online via the link in the below press release by BMG. 

Midge Ure will be releasing ‘Orchestrated’, an album of reimagined and orchestrated versions of Ultravox hits and Midge Ure classic tracks, including Vienna, Dancing With Tears In My Eyes, and If I Was. The album will be released on 1st December, but to coincide with his tour, BMG are offering an exclusive fan pre-sale where you can pre-order ‘Orchestrated’ at the shows or from the official  "Orchestrated" online store and receive a signed set list along with a lanyard.https://MidgeUre.lnk.to/Pre-orderFA (from 11am Tuesday)

It's time to go back to the electronic roots
Time to lay down the acoustic setup and reunite with the synthesisers and electric guitars.

After two very successful tours with the boys from India Electric Company, the time is right for a change in direction.

"I want to revisit some material that I've not really been able to perform with the recent acoustic line up, so you can expect to hear songs that haven't been aired for a while as well as the classics and a couple of surprises! I've really enjoyed touring with a band and now I want to expand back to a four piece and return to a more electronic based format"
 
The tour will start in Germany in September, before moving on to the UK hopefully afterwards.
 
Dates confirmed so far are:
 
27 September Frankfurt - Batschkapp
28 September Munich - Technikum
29 September Cologne - Kantine 
1 October Bochum - Zeche 
3 October Hamburg - Grünspan 
4 October Berlin Columbia Theatre
 
Tickets go on sale tomorrow via https://lb-events.de/de/veranstaltungen/midgeure.html
