Show Preview: Midge Ure @ Cactus Cafe (1/18)
Midge Ure is a name you should know, but you may not despite the iconic voice and contributions to music. Ultravox, Visage, solo albums, collaborations on so many things including producing and writing that little Band-Aid thing thirty years ago. Little known fact, he played all but the drums for that song (Phil Collins put down that track).
Anyway, Midge is playing an acoustic set at Cactus Cafe Sunday. I am excited. His 2004 album is on slow-burn in my catalog, lots of variety there and some real gems, dark to pop. Allegedly, there will be stories told and songs old and new. “Fade to Grey” is a desert island song for me. Pretty, pretty, pretty excited.
Here is a track from the last solo album called Fragile.
