Touching Hearts and Skies

Early last year, Gary Barlow personally approached Midge to write a song for an album to accompany a new film being released in April about the Winter Olympics antihero, Eddie "the eagle" Edwards. The track, provisionally entitled Touching Hearts and Skies which feaures a typically anthemic soaring melody os due for release in March 2016.

 

A New Tour for Autumn 2016 - Something from Everything

In 2015, Midge teamed up with the two boys from India Electric Company to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his album, Breathe. The collaboration was a success, so much so that Midge has decided to continue working with them in 2016.
 
"I really enjoyed playing Breathe in it's entirety and there were some surprising successes! Album, tracks that I didn't really expect people to be aware of became the stars of the show, and this started me thinking about revisiting some older material that I never envisaged playing again as well as a raft of hits. Then I decided it would be a fun idea to play something from every album I have recorded right from the Rich Kids, via Visage and Ultravox, to my latest solo album, Fragile"
 
So there you have it. The "Something from Everything" Tour, performed in a format that will provide the framework of texture and diversity without detracting from the essence of the most important factor - the songs!

 

We have currently confirmed dates for Germany, and more shows will follow soon.
