The linked webpage incorrectly states that the Vienna album has never previously before been performed in its entirety.

Great news. Of course, Ultravox doing a tour of Vienna would have been awesome, but this is the second best option and I'll take it smile. Would be nice if he sneaks in a couple of B-sides, Waiting, Face to Face, Passionate Reply....

The one thing that bugs me a bit about this is who is going to recite Mr X. I mean it is Warren's piece. Cannot imagine how it will come across. Will Midge do it himself? That will be a first, right?

My guess would be an instrumental version or the India Electric Company vocalist from the band could do it, but I reckon an instrumental is the way it'll go smile

Thanks for updating me on this,
. Also got tics for Stockhlom, interesting that these shows are in May 2020. Several months after the 2019 autumn shows. Might see Gothenburg as well.

Surely all he has to do is ask Chrysalis for the multitrack track for either Mr or Herr X?

I would believe those four are most likely, but hopefully a couple more. Visa-Age please.
Oh, and Rusty is joining smile. From Midge's Twitter:
"Visage co-founder Rusty Egan joins me on the 1980 Tour starting October 2019 to perform selected tracks from the first Visage album together for the first time. He is also playing a Blitz DJ set on every show excluding Manchester, Liverpool, Belfast and Dublin."

Midge posted a video a few days back and on the computer screen it had a list of 18 songs that they were working out parts to, if your careful you can get a screen cap and see whats on there wink

I was at the Glasgow show on Sunday. It was a great gig. Here's the set list. It's from memory, but I think it's correct.

Yellow Pearl
Visage
In The Year 2525
Blocks On Blocks
The Dancer
Mind Of A Toy
Glorious
Fade To Grey
Astradyne
New Europeans
Private Lives
Passing Strangers
Sleepwalk
Mr X
Western Promise
Vienna
All Stood Still

Passionate Reply
Dancing With Tears In My Eyes

The Voice
Hymn


Rusty was on stage playing a small set of drums on the first eight songs, then went off for the Ultravox songs. (Russell Field still played the main drum kit on all songs.)

Midge said they were taking the opportunity to do Glorious while they had Rusty on stage, so not sure if that means it'll only be performed on the dates he's appearing.

The vocals on Mr X were done through a vocoder (as were the intro and middle-8 of In The Year 2525).

Midge said Passionate Reply was in the set because people had kept requesting it online after the tour was announced.

So happy to see Passionate Reply in the set list (I even requested it back in December in this very thread), all ready to go on Saturday smile
