"Dear God"

Midge Ure, at 63 years of age, can still rock the house. The former member of Ultravox, Visage, and Thin Lizzy brought his three-piece band to the Casbah, where they played songs spanning his career. Fan favorites such as "Fade to Grey," "Dancing With Tears in My Eyes," and "Reap the Wild Wind."

Ure kicked off the show with his hopeful solo hit "Dear God," which got everyone up and dancing, and he ended the night with an exhilarating version of David Bowie's "Starman," in remembrance of, as Ure said, "a man who changed the face of music forever."

Ure then stayed after the show to meet with all his grateful fans, taking pictures, signing autographs, and chatting with anyone who wanted to say hi. He couldn't have been nicer or more congenial.
