Ultravox Unveil Further Plans For '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.

ImageThe 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’. The new EP is set for release on 24th September.

Weezer - Pacific Daydream (Album Review)
Mon 30 Oct 2017
Weezer. Oh no. Last year’s ‘White Album’ restored faith in California’s most annoyingly inconsistent sons. After 15 years spent chipping away at their legacy, this guitar-toting, Beach Boys-worshiping band decided to take what made them brilliant in the first place and boot it into 2016. It was home to ‘50s melodies, alt-rock fuzz and painfully awkward words spewing from Rivers Cuomo’s lyric sheet. It was a Weezer record fans could finally be proud of.
Bryan Adams - Ultimate (Album Review)
Tue 14 Nov 2017
If every picture paints a visual story, every ‘best of’ album tells a musical one. For example, there’s the feeling any Bryan Adams collection called ‘Ultimate’ shouldn’t include tracks recorded after the early ‘90s. Although the truth isn’t quite that straightforward, it’s hard to disagree when listening to the Canadian rocker’s latest career-spanning compilation.
