He was also a member of Slik, Thin Lizzy, Rich Kids, and Visage as well as scoring solo success, and he sung, played guitar, keyboards, and synthesizer.

In 1984, Midge Ure co-wrote “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”, which is the second highest-selling single in UK chart history. He also co-organised Band Aid, Live Aid, and Live 8 alongside Bob Geldof.
