Scottish musician and singer-songwriter Midge Ure comes to The Iridium for two nights.

One of the key members of the new wave band Ultravox, Midge Ure has also worked with the Rich Kids, a punk-pop group led by former Sex Pistol bassist Glen Matlock; Visage with drummer Rusty Egan and vocalist Steve Strange; and Thin Lizzy. Ure and Bob Geldof formed Band Aid, a special project to aid famine relief efforts in Ethiopia, in 1984. The two wrote the song "Do They Know It's Christmas?" and assembled an all-star band of British musicians to record the single; it sold millions of copies over the 1984 holiday season and prompted Geldof to organize the benefit concert Live Aid in 1985. In 2017, he collaborated with composer Ty Unwin on the album Orchestrated, which featured orchestral reworkings of Ultravox songs, as well as songs from his solo career.
