The Last Ever Official Voxgate

Official Voxgates tend to be a bit of an event, and for this last one we decided to go out with a bang! Don't miss the Last Ever Official Voxgate, in the afternoon of 11th April 2010 before the Hammersmith Ultravox show, with The Messengers - Danny Mitchell and Colin King - and Party Fears Three live. What's more, Warren Cann has indicated that he 'might attend', subject to soundcheck commitments - so you may just see a member of Ultravox there too!

 

Tickets are still available - for full info go to www.ultravox.org.uk/voxgate or straight to booking at www.wegottickets.com/event/72547. Tickets are £9 in advance or £12 on the door and the Voxgate finishes in plenty of time to reach the Hammersmith Apollo. See you there!

Vienna For UK No.1 Campaign

A 2010 FaceBook campaign to see Ultravox finally get a UK no.1 with 'Vienna' is gaining momentum, almost thirty years on from the time that it was held off the top spot by both John Lennon and Joe Dolce.

 

The campaign's founder Martin Slade isn't particularly an Ultravox fan; he became interested in how the two songs seemed to be forever remembered together and felt that there might be a chance to remedy this.

 

Martin started the FaceBook group in June 2009 and originally planned to aim the campaign for 2011, 30 years since the single was released - but following Rage Against the Machine's successful campaign in December 2009, thought it best to surf that momentum and move it up to 2010. Interestingly, Joe Dolce himself has launched a rival campaign in a bid to repeat history...

 

The FaceBook group urges fans to purchase and download the Vienna single from any legal UK-based source such as Amazon, iTunes, Play, HMV etc.

 

Download links for SUN 28th MARCH to SAT 3rd APRIL ONLY:
Amazon.co.uk - 69p
Play - 70p
iTunes - 79p (track 3, Single Version)
HMV - 99p (track 9, Single Version)

 

Overseas fans can join in by going to www.nokiamusic.co.uk - this is how Rage Against the Machine fans outside the UK made their purchases count towards the UK chart.

  • Install and run the player (select UK for all the options)
  • Set up an account (again select UK if asked for location)
  • Put some credit in the account
  • Start downloading

DON'T DOWNLOAD IT YET! To count for the chart on Sun 4th April you need to buy between Sun 28th March and Sat 3rd April. Join in the fun to help make this happen...

Let's get Vienna by Ultravox to No.1 on 4th April!

Midge Ure 'If I Was' autobiography new chapter

Midge's autobiography 'If I Was' is being re-released on August 31st 2010, apparently with another new chapter. We imagine this will be about Ultravox's reformation and the Return to Eden tour - so if we're right, it should be well worth grabbing again!

 

Pre-order from Amazon for £8.09

Why does this email look different?

Thanks to the generous help of FR, SG and PH, we can now switch to the rather more reliable MailChimp HTML email service. For a list of our size, it's not cheap at $75 a month - but it does mean that you should receive emails much more quickly, more reliably and it won't slow down the main website whilst it's sending. MailChimp should be a vast improvement - so please do drop us an email at ev@ultravox.org.uk if you have any issues with viewing or receiving this and we'll look into it right away.

Helping the site through Amazon

If you enjoy the Official Ultravox website, please remember that you can help us by using our Amazon search box to purchase anything at all, either for yourself, for gifts or even gift certificates and DVD rental subscriptions. If the search box doesn't show in this email, this direct link will take you there instead. Once you reach Amazon.co.uk, you can continue shopping as normal and we will get a small commission on anything you buy within 24 hours of your initial visit. Thank you!

John Foxx Mailing List

We feature some John Foxx stories on this Ultravox list, but tend not to duplicate everything sent out by our sister site, Metamatic. If you would like to keep up to date with ALL the John Foxx news as and when it happens, send an email to subscribe@metamatic.com to be added to Metamatic's mailing list.

Midge Ure Live

Midge Ure is currently performing a rolling set of solo live dates which are constantly updated, so to keep up to date with these, please keep checking the News page on his website.

Forum Fun!

Don't forget that Ultravox.org.uk has a thriving Forum - so if you haven't already, go to the Forum summary to join in the fun! If you're in a hurry, you can also go straight to the active topics in the last 24 hours. News stories often break here first, before being sent out to the mailing list - so it's worth checking out. See you there!
