The musician said it was a “logical and emotional follow-up” to The 1980 Tour, which took place in 2019 to an overwhelming response from fans.
The Voice & Visions tour will begin on February 22, 2022, visiting 26 cities across the UK, transporting fans back to the decade of electronics, experimentation, synthesizers and great songwriting.
At the start of 1981, Ultravox were laying their claim to be one of the defining acts of the 80s following the global success of hit Vienna.
Heading back into the studio the same year invigorated, they recorded their second album with Ure as frontman, Rage In Eden, which hit the top five in the UK album charts.
Quartet, their third album with Ure, came in quick succession in 1982 with production from legendary Beatles producer George Martin.
Continuing the band’s impressive chart run, it became their third top ten album, featuring four top 20 singles including the anthem, Hymn.
