“Things will get better,” says Midge Ure, who famously created Live Aid and Band Aid alongside Bob Geldof.
Ure, who also co-wrote the classic anthem “Do They Know It’s Christmas?,” has helped fans get through the pandemic with his music. The legendary frontman for alternative band Ultravox and popular solo artist launched Backstage Lockdown Club, inviting fans to join him virtually for live performances and more.
