a vox fan from australia - Tue, 07 Sep 2010 10:56:00

hi everyone, i am an vox fan from australia, i have been since i was a teenager, when i first heard the gorgeous vocals of midge ure singing vienna and the gorgeously spine-chilling viola of billy currie, i was hooked so, i suppose, i am an old fan and i have loved and followed ultravox ever since, they were my favourite band back then and they still are.

i was so happy when i got to see then in sheffield recently, a dream i've had since i was a teenager. i travelled all the way from australia just to see them, a long way i know but ultravox are worth it, a long time dream come true smile

Welcome Toni !!
I'm new on here as well - been an Ultravox fan since the 70's.
Didn't get to see them live though until the re-union tour, although I've seen Midge solo
on several occasions.
I am over 40 and under 50 ( just !! )
- but currently feel around 70 !!
