Midge Ure will be asking his audience at Motherwell Concert Hall to help pick his playlist for this Saturday's concert.

Scottish music legend Midge Ure is back on the UK theatre circuit with a special concert experience – his latest show Songs, Questions and Answers’.

The tour visits Motherwell Concert Hall this Saturday, March 9.

Twenty five years ago, Midge presented a theatre show with a Q&A element to it, and in 2019 he will revisit that concept with an updated version. Each show will feature a Q&A element and a musical element.

Accompanying Midge are his multi instrumentalists Cole Stacey and Joe O’Keefe.

Stacey and O’Keefe will also open the show playing their own original material as India Electric Company.

There’s plenty for Midge to talk about during a 40-year professional career from Ultravox, Midge’s solo work to Band Aid and his orchestrated CD from 2017 – as well as anything else the audience can think of to ask him.

Midge will perform songs from the Ultravox catalogue alongside his solo work. There will also be an opportunity for suggestions from the crowd to pick a song for him to perform. The show will showcase a selection of material that will satisfy fans and please the curious. It’s not often the audience gets to suggest the playlist.

Tickets are available from Midge Ure’s official website or from the venue’s box office, telephone 01698 403120 , or online at Culture NL
