Midge Ure broke through as guitarist/singer of the successful new-wave band Ultravox. The band broke through with the song ‘Vienna’, followed by ‘Dancing With Tears In My Eyes’. After a short break with Ultravox, Ure recorded solo album ‘The Gift’, which included the single ‘If I Was’. In 1988, he definitely continued as a solo artist: Ultravox broke up. With good friend Bob Geldof, Ure also wrote the song ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ and organised Live Aid, but due to publicity canon Geldof, his contribution to it was almost completely snowed under.
