Midge Ure: New York, NY, January 9, 2013

By Published: January 26, 2013
Ure then thanked the adoring crowd and left the stage. After a few minutes he was back and played a phenomenal acoustic version of "Do They Know Its Christmas?" (the song he co-wrote with Bob Geldorf and started the Live Aid movement). Ure said that he was going to do the song even though he took his tree down on January 1st. The enthusiastic crowd sang along with him through verse and chorus—especially on the "feed the world..." call-and-response section. When the song came to a close, Ure came forward, waved to the crowd, shook a few hands and thanked the audience and Right The Stars for making the evening such a hit.
