Eighties new-wave legends Ultravox are set to visit Colston Hall Bristol this autumn.

The Bristol show will be the first time Ultravox have played live since their Return To Eden reformation tour of 2009.

The latest gigs will follow the hugely anticipated release of their forthcoming new album, Brilliant – their first in 28 years.

The legendary quartet of Midge Ure, Billy Currie, Chris Cross and Warren Cann have created a record that not only stands alongside the finest work of their career but firmly places them as both a huge influence upon, and a vital contemporary force within, today’s musical climate.

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 new material from the album alongside classic tracks from the band’s hugely influential back catalogue.

Midge Ure added: “We’re cherry picking 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 hit Colston Hall Bristol on September 21, 2012. Tickets go on sale at 9am on May 18, 2012.
