Biografía

Primarily celebrated for his collaborations with Bob Geldof on the historic Band Aid and Live Aid charity projects, Midge Ure nevertheless had already enjoyed much success with a variety of bands - notably Slik and Ultravox - long before then. His music began in Glasgow in 1969 in a covers band called Stumble, who gradually transformed themselves into the pop boy band Slik, securing a Number 1 single in 1976 with Forever And Ever. Turning down an offer to join the Sex Pistols, Ure re-shaped Slik as the punk-influenced PVC2, before he moved to London to join ex-Sex Pistol Glen Matlock in The Rich Kids. Becoming hooked on the synthesiser, Ure then formed a new band Visage with Rusty Egan, enjoying a major hit in 1980 with techno single Fade To Grey. After a short spell with Thin Lizzy, Ure was invited by Billy Currie to help resurrect Currie's old synth-pop band Ultravox, resulting in one of the biggest hits of Ure's career, the 1981 smash Vienna. The albums Vienna and Rage In Eden also sold well, while Ure also made his mark behind the production desk working on tracks with the likes of Skids and Steve Harley, and released his solo single No Regrets. In the meantime he had another hit with Ultravox - Dancing With Tears In My Eyes - and released his first solo album. Ure's reputation rocketed after collaborating with Geldof on Band Aid's 1984 Number 1 Do They Know It's Christmas, after which he achieved his first solo Number 1 with If I Was from the album The Gift, and he continued recording and playing concerts into the 2000s.
