One of the biggest names in 1980s music, British musician Midge Ure, stops in at Brick by Brick on Jan. 25. Over the decades, he has been a member of such revered acts as The Rich Kids, Visage and Thin Lizzy, as well as co-writing and producing the classic track “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”, but it’s as a member of Ultravox that he had the greatest impact with hits like “Sleepwalk” and “Dancing with Tears in My Eyes.” It’s unusual for such a big name to play such an intimate venue, so fans shouldn’t hesitate to snap up tickets while they can to what promises to be a hit-packed show.
• Midge Ure performs at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25 at Brick by Brick, 1130 Buenos Ave. 21 and up. $20. www.brickbybrick.com
