MIDGE URE Announces North American Tour for August and September

April 10, 2024 –  New York, NY:  Midge Ure announces a late summer North American tour that will kick off at Daryl’s house in Pawling, NY on August 7. The gigs dubbed ‘Band In A Box’ will take Midge across North America and back, wrapping up in Ft. Lauderdale on September 12.

Midge talks about the tour: “Lots of people asking me to clarify what ‘Band in a Box’ actually is. It consists of myself on electric guitar, synthesiser and vocals alongside my long time keyboard player Charlie Round-Turner playing live with various loops, samples and programmed drums.

A band in a box! This format allows me to perform a full band performance with a ’stripped down’ duo. I will be playing a range of material from my long and varied career. From early Ultravox and Visage to recent solo material. Who knew two people could make so much noise?”

Tickets can be purchased via MidgeUre.com.

Midge Ure recently celebrated his seventieth birthday with a one-night only concert at The Royal Albert Hall celebrating his catalogue and will embark on a European tour before coming to North America. He is also still hosting his  Backstage Lockdown Club giving fans exclusive access to a series of intimate, musical events on a monthly subscription basis.
