The Scottish musician commented, “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.”
The exciting announcement follows the overwhelming response to Midge Ure & Band Electronica‘s ‘The 1980 Tour’ back in 2019.
Stopping off at 26 cities, the new shows will transport fans back to the decade of electronics, experimentation, synthesizers and great songwriting. The albums highlights will be performed alongside Ure’s biggest solo hits and other highlights from his extensive back catalogue.
‘Rage in Eden’ was British new wave band Ultravox’s second album with Ure as frontman. The record dropped in 1981 reaching the Top 5 in the UK album charts and was followed in quick succession by ‘Quartet’ in 1982, which featured production from legendary Beatles producer George Martin. Continuing the band’s impressive chart run, it became their third Top 10 album and boasted four Top 20 singles including anthem ‘Hymn’.
