FOLLOWING the hotly-anticipated release of their forthcoming new album Brilliant, 1980s icons Ultravox will be heading to Bristol during their UK tour.

This will be the first time the band have played live since their Return To Eden reformation shows in 2009.

Midge Ure said: “It’s always such an important part for us, the presentation of the live show, building the environment to play the music in.

“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.

Midge said: “We’re cherrypicking 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.”

Ultravox will perform at Bristol’s Colston Hall, in Colston Street, on September 21 at 7pm. Tickets, priced £32.50, are available from the box office on 0117 9223686.
