Scottish new wave singer-songwriter Midge Ure has announced he will return Down Under in 2020 for a string of headline dates.
Following a run of acoustic shows in 2015, Ure will bring a full band to play gigs in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth next March.
Ure was a member of a number of bands in the '70s and '80s including Slik, Thin Lizzy, Rich Kids and Visage, and was most notably frontman of Ultravox. He also co-wrote and produced the hit charity single Do They Know It's Christmas and co-organised Band Aid, Live Aid and Live 8 with Bod Geldof.
"Australians always embraced musical experimentation and change and certainly took Ultravox and Visage to their hearts" said Ure.
"I remember filming the acceptance speech for the single of the year Brit award for Vienna in the shadow of the Sydney Harbour Bridge during an Ultravox tour.
"I'm looking forward to coming back to celebrate that innovative and creative period."
