Midge Ure & Band Electronica are taking York back to the ‘80s – followed by another twist back in time as the Hawkwind celebrate their 50th anniversary at the same venue in the city.
The synthesizers of futuristic Visage’s single ‘Fade To Grey’ and Ultravox’s single ‘Vienna’ took over from the guitar-driven dominance that had propelled rock and punk throughout the ‘70s.
Both records were co-written, recorded and produced by one of the leading characters in British music, Midge Ure, who is performing at York Grand Opera House on October 21.
But music fans can rock on because space rock pioneers Hawkwind have lined up a huge tour for autumn. Dave Brock and crew will play at the Grand Opera House on November 11.
Chuff Media said: “The legendary pioneers of space rock will be performing across the UK in celebration of half a century of their musical journey so far. This tour follows on from an incredible 2018 which saw them tour their groundbreaking production, In Search of Utopia – Infinity and Beyond, to sell-out audiences in the UK.”
