Midge Ure & Band Electronica To Play Four Yorkshire Venues in 2022
Following the overwhelming response to 2019’s The 1980 Tour, Midge Ure & Band Electronica are delighted to return to the road in 2022 with the Voice & Visions tour, celebrating 40 years since the release of Ultravox’s Rage In Eden and Quartet albums.
And they’ll be hitting Yorkshire four times as part of their 27 date tour. They kick things off at Bradford St.George’s Hall on 21st February. And the following night they’ll play at York’s Grand Opera House. They’ll also perform at Hull Bonus Arena on 27th February and Sheffield City Hall on 22nd March.
“One of the defining acts of the 80s”
At the start of 1981, Ultravox were laying their claim to be one of the defining acts of the 80s. The global success of hit ‘Vienna’ made them a household name. They headed back into the studio the same year invigorated. And they also recorded their second album with Ure as frontman, Rage in Eden. That hit the Top 5 in the UK album charts; and Quartet, their third album with Ure, came in quick succession in 1982. Production on that one came from the legendary Beatles producer George Martin. And continuing the band’s impressive chart run, it became their third Top 10 album. It also contained four Top 20 singles including the anthem ‘Hymn’.
The Voice & Visions tour will visit an astounding 27 towns and cities across the UK before culminating at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on 2nd April. Transporting fans back to the decade of electronics, experimentation, synthesizers and great songwriting, the highlights of the album will be showcased alongside landmark hits from Ure’s incredible back catalogue.
Midge Ure said of the tour: “I can’t begin to tell you how great it feels to be back out touring after the uncertainty of the past two years, and it is especially exciting to delve back in time and revitalise two standout albums from my career, Rage in Eden and Quartet. This is the logical and emotional follow up to the 1980 tour”
