Midge Ure 

Nightlife Highlights

January 12. Now, here’s a name you don’t see in our neck of the woods often—or on this side of the pond at all, for that matter. The saga of England’s Midge Ure, who finds himself at the Bearsville Theater this month, represents one of the strangest career trajectories in rock. After scoring a UK number one single in 1976 with boy band Slik, he quit the teeny-bop scene and joined ex-Sex Pistol Glen Matlock’s new group, the Rich Kids. From there, he briefly played guitar in Thin Lizzy, replaced singer John Fox in Ultravox, and co-founded New Romantic lightweights Visage. Upon going solo he had another number one with 1985’s “If I Was.” A documentary on Ultravox’s 2010 reunion tour is being completed as the singer works on a memoir. For this show the band Right the Stars opens and backs Ure. (NRBQ rocks the house once again January 20.) 8pm. $25. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406.
