New Zealand Press Release
Midge Ure and band confirm 7 NZ shows for career-spanning tour
Plus1 proudly presents UK legend Midge Ure performing seven shows around New Zealand in March 2017 as part of his retrospective Something From Everything Tour – covering 40 years of his influential music.
The former Ultravox frontman will be accompanied by the India Electric Company – multi-instrumentalists Cole Stacey and Joseph O’Keefe – with Ure and co performing at least one song from each album.
Midge Ure’s Something From Everything Tour features concerts in Auckland, Tauranga, Wellington, Nelson, Queenstown, Christchurch and Dunedin.
The setlist stretches right back to 1977 with punk supergroup the Rich Kids, through to Visage (Fade to Grey), and the many hits of Ultravox – gems like Vienna, Dancing With Tears In My Eyes, Reap The Wild Wind and many more. Plus key songs from his acclaimed solo albums like The Gift (with the infectious ‘If I Was’), Pure, and Answers to Nothing.
Ure says the three-piece approach is a lot of fun and adds colour, texture and depth to each song’s essential elements – a distinctly different approach to his solo tour here in April 2015.
“We’ve played some wonderful shows around Europe and the United States, and I can’t wait to bring the band Downunder for our Kiwi friends.”
