Midge Ure joins Howard Jones for a summer tour of the United States


Midge Ure will join Howard Jones as a special guest for a summer tour of the United States. Musicians Dan Burton will join Ure for what he calls a “synth heavy” set, also playing keyboards with Howard Jones and Tony Solis who has played with Midge on previous US tours.

“What a joy to be touring North America again with my friend Howard Jones. With a focus on technology, quality and performance, I look forward to dusting off the synthesizers, building the guitar and playing with the brilliant musicians who will share the stage with me. We first collaborated live together in 1989 on Howard’s “Cross the Line Tour” which has only fond memories in store for me, so I hope not only to rekindle those , but add new ones to the memory bank”.

He’s also been busy making music, including an instrumental album: “Having hosted a radio show ‘The Space’ on Scala Radio last year, where I indulged myself and the listeners at the textural ambient music from some of the neo-classical composers, I felt inspired to follow my lifelong passion for instrumental music and wrote and recorded an album that I’m truly satisfied with. Every album I’ve ever released had instrumentals, but this is my first entirely non-vocal album. Due out late 22.”

Ure also recently published a book of ‘In A Picture Frame’ photographs taken between 1980 and 1986. Behind the Scenes Moments with Ultravox and Face. “Because we never shot with photographers, we ended up capturing those intimate moments ourselves. This book contains my personal selection of those for which I was responsible.”
