Clare Grogan / Midge Ure

 

Guildhall, Portsmouth

Finally seen my teenage fantasy in Clare Grogan, only about 30+ years late!

She was great fun, very chatty and also a good performance live

Next up was The Christians who were not really on my radar but were not actually that bad.

Headlining was Midge Ure who put in an amazing performance covering his Ultravox, Visage and Solo work and even some Top Of The Pops thrown in.

A great night all round
