Ultravox at Hammersmith Apollo, 27 September 2012

Ultravox on stage at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on 27 September 2012.

The 80s new wave pioneers, still sporting a suave suited look, played a two set show with no support. The seated audience were soon on their feet, eager to make the most of this reunion tour. I later heard that towards the end of the show, long after the photographers had been ushered away, there was a strange incident of someone running on stage to pour custard over Midge Ure’s head!

However, these photos show the more sombre drama that began the evening. The smoke clouds and shadows help to give this severely angled shot a sense of foreboding and mystery….I can almost hear the opening of “Vienna”.
