Midge Ure At The Arc

Midge Ure
The Arc, Stockton-on-Tees
It was good to see Midge Ure back in the North East. It gave the adventurous Arc their second sell-out in under a week.
Between his solo songs he reminisced about such things as Top of the Pops, appearing with Slik at BBC Radio Tees, interviewing Spider From Mars Trevor Bolder (who died last week) and Joe Dolce (the man who kept Vienna from the No.1 spot back in the day).

The set list featured a good variety of his solo work in conjunction with a number of classic Ultravox numbers, brought right up to date with good versions of Brilliant and Contact.

Midge was very relaxed and in good voice; the audience was friendly and appreciative. It was a very good evening.
