Midge Ure, Gig Review. Citadel, St Helens.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

When Midge Ure steps on stage, all eyes are naturally always on him. There is the noticeable and understandable plethora of pictures taken by the long term fan wanting to keep their collections up to date of the man that has thrilled them for over 30 years and then the odd shy newcomer taking a picture and hoping that nobody minds. Then it all stops, the camera’s seem to be put away and nobody dares put off the man who makes a Saturday night out, a real treat. What is left is a man who bought songs such as Vienna, If I Was and Dancing With Tears In My Eyes and the guitar, no more no less and the result is tremendous.

Ultravox, Brilliant. Album Review.

L.S. Media Rating *****

For anyone who caught Ultravox on the last tour or even Midge Ure’s much coveted solo gigs in the last few years, it really won’t come as any surprise to find that the first studio album by the band in 18 years is nothing short of sensational.
