Midge Ure

Autumn 1979 was a pivotal point in my career trajectory…..over the previous two years I had travelled from “pop band” (Slick) to “post punk band” (The Rich Kids) to being a stand in guitarist for Thin Lizzy, who were a huge influence on me when I was growing up.

Over the course of autumn into winter 1979, I completed the Visage project with Billy Currie and was then invited to join Ultravo. The work we did that winter on the Vienna album was an exhilarating rush of creativity that was seldom rivalled in our history.

Forty years later I want to celebrate this period and as we pass from 2019 into 2020 play the Vienna album in its entirety along with highlights from the eponymous Visage album. Join me and my Band Electronica on this celebration journey back to 1980.
