This has been a long time in the planning and organised by Paisley based Promoters.

Tommy McGrory, of LNP Promotions said “we had been trying to get Midge Ure to play a show for us for at least the last 5 years. Obviously he’s a very busy, respected and successful musician, playing shows all over the world, so we were delighted when he agreed to work with us this year.”

“Everything we do at LNP Promotions is aimed at attracting top acts to Paisley while at the same time raising funds for Loud n Proud, this show works on every level. We are very grateful to Midge and his team for agreeing to come to Paisley – we can’t wait!”
