Midge Ure Live at Paisley at Town Hall

Midge ure

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Last night Midge Ure performed live at Paisley Town Hall and quite literally it was one of the best gigs ever performed in Paisley. One member of the audience said that this was his 6th Midge Ure gig and it was definitely the best.

Paisley Town Hall was sold out days before the doors opened with people coming from far afield, one couple even came from Norway.

From the get go Midge was on fire and he had the crowd in the palm of his hand, the Old New Romantic charmed the crowd who at points were up dancing in the aisles. Midge was putting so much into it he even broke the strings on his guitar.

The organisers LNP Promotions were blown away by how well Paisley has responded to the two big gigs they have put on this month, Eddi Reader with her Vagabond Tour and now with Midge Ure who recently brought out a brand new single after 12 years absence.

LNP Promotions will now take stock and hopefully next year they will be bringing some more amazing acts to the town.

Twin town band bring their big brass sound

A 30-strong band from Renfrewshire’s Danish ‘twin town’ will bring their big brass sound to the area next week.

The FDF Gladsaxe Brass Band will play two free lunchtime concerts in Paisley.

The band will play Paisley Abbey on Monday 15 July (12.30pm – 1.30pm) and the town’s Cenotaph on Friday 19 July (12.30pm – 1.30pm).

The 30-strong band has toured extensively around Europe and is a previous winner of their national brass band championships.

Depute Provost John Caldwell is preparing to welcome the band and said: “I’d like to extend them a warm welcome and, hopefully, the weather is going to do the same!

“Brass bands are incredibly popular in this country, with a strong culture of brass brand participation in our industrial towns and villages. It will be so interesting and enjoyable to hear a band from another country playing.

“The abbey is such a stunning venue for concerts and I’m sure the band will sound excellent in these surroundings.”

“This is another great example of the cultural exchange that can take place when areas across Europe twin with each other.”

Both concerts are free to attend with locals encouraged to simply turn up on the day
