NEWS: Ultravox Announce ‘Brilliant’ Tour

Ultravox have unveiled further plans for their forthcoming tour which starts on September 21st in Bristol and includes 14 shows in the UK, with a further 20 dates throughout Europe.
The band have announced that there will be no support act and each show will feature a full evening of Ultravox playing two sets each night delving deep into their catalogue of classic hits and album tracks, alongside performing songs from their acclaimed new album ‘Brilliant’, which was released in May 2012.
“When we toured in 2009 we rediscovered what an Ultravox live show is all about,” explains Midge Ure, “and so this time wanted to take it to its logical conclusion by playing as many songs as we possibly can. We know from the excitement of our fans that they all have favourites they’re desperate to hear so we’ll be playing as many songs as possible from our back catalogue mixed amongst the new material.”
“We set ourselves a monumental task trying to select the songs,” says bassist Chris Cross, “so have decided to play longer and stronger, performing two full sets each night with an interval. Be prepared; these shows will be very special for us and hopefully you too – all Ultravox, all night”.
To coincide with the ‘Brilliant’ tour, Ultravox will be releasing a digital EP featuring ‘Live’, the opening song from the album, alongside a brand new track ‘7/8’ and two live tracks from the second leg of the ‘Return To Eden’ tour in 2010: ‘We Stand Alone’ and ‘Astradyne’. This will be available from all usual online stores.
