It was a case of 'goodnight Vienna' for popstar Midge Ure whose gig in Llangollen tomorrow has been cancelled because of poor ticket sales. Midge, one of the big names behind Live Aid and Live 8, was former frontman of Ultravox whose '80s hits included Vienna.

The biography of Midge on wikipedia.org says he turned down an offer to be the lead singer of the Sex Pistols and played temporarily for Thin Lizzy.
