There was something remarkable about UK pop music in the ’80s, and two of the most remarkable authors of that era’s sophisticated British pop music have teamed up for a joint tour in June. Midge Ure and Paul Young take their joint Soundtrack of Your Life Tour to Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club on Tuesday, June 5. You can win tickets to go with Parklife DC.
Since returning to the United States several years ago for his first tour here in decades, Midge has visited Bethesda Blues several times now on tour. On June 8, Midge will release Orchestrated, his latest project via BMG, in the United States. Orchestrated features orchestral versions of his well-known solo hits as well as some favorite selections from Ultravox, including “If I Was,” “Fragile,” “Dancing with Tears in My Eyes,” “Vienna,” and “Reap the Wild Wind.” Midge will perform some of those songs with his touring band at Bethesda Blues!
Paul Young will perform songs from his chart-topping catalogue spanning four decades, including the hits “Come Back and Stay,” “Every Time You Go Away,” and “What Becomes of the Broken Hearted” as well as tracks from his latest album Good Times, released in 2016.

The 80s were the most amazing years of music.
I grew up wearing my ‘Haunting notes, pizzicato strings’ sweatshirt, which I have now lost !
Midge was the man plastered all over my bedroom wall, and still has a place on the wall, in the wardrobe !
Favourite song: always ‘Breathe’.
This would make my 50th birthday year truly special to see the man of my dreams! I need him to meet me so we can run away together ( in my dreams ! )
