Ultravox Announce Autumn UK Tour Supporting New Album 'Brilliant' & Tickets

Ultravox follow the hugely anticipated release of their forthcoming new album ‘Brilliant’ with a UK tour. Starting in Bristol, this will be the first time the band have played live since their ‘Return To Eden’ reformation shows of 2009.

ImageThe new wave rockers have announced the new tour after unveiling the new album's artwork earlier this month. 'Brilliant', which is released on 28th May through EMI, is the group's first new album in 28 years.

The legendary quartet of Midge Ure, Billy Currie, Chris Cross and Warren Cann have created an album that not only stands alongside the finest work of their career but firmly places them as both a huge influence upon, and a vital contemporary force within, today’s musical climate.

“It’s always such an important part for us, the presentation of the live show, building the environment to play the music in,” explains Midge Ure. “We want to make our take on it as individual and memorable as possible, so that when you walk out of the venue and you put the record on in six months time it takes you right back to the moment when you saw it live on stage.”

The ‘Brilliant’ tour will feature brand new material from the album alongside classic tracks from the band’s hugely influential back catalogue. “We’re cherry picking what will work in the context of a set. There’ll be a good element of the ‘Brilliant’ album played live and we’re really looking forward to taking these songs out on the road.”

Mon 09 Apr 2018
Thirty Seconds To Mars have a habit of tapping into the musical zeitgeist. Their self-titled debut capitalised on the fallout from nu-metal at the start of the millennium, while their breakthrough, ‘A Beautiful Lie’, rode high on the emo wave of mid-2000s. More recent releases - ‘This is War’ and ‘Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams’ - followed the trend of infusing anthemic guitar music with outsized electronics.

Mon 14 May 2018
