Midge Ure: Lady GaGa's Live Singing Is a Fresh Air


The Ultravox's former frontman has praised Lady GaGa for shunning lip-sync performance, saying 'it was nice to hear somebody actually sing live'.

Former Ultravox's frontman Midge Ure has lavished praise on Lady GaGa for refusing to lip-sync at her shows - insisting her Monster Ball tour should encourage other artists to sing live. The veteran rocker admits he was astounded by the singer's performance when he attended one of her recent concerts in the U.K. - and he hopes other pop acts will follow her example by putting on a real show for fans.

He says, "I'm sick of acts cheating on stage, either lip-syncing or not totally playing live. It was like a breath of fresh air seeing Lady GaGa. In a sea of similar-type acts, who just go on and do the dance routines, it was nice to hear somebody actually sing live."

"Isn't that what you go to a concert for, to hear the music interpreted in a live fashion? Be real about it. There are no overdubs or fancy studio techniques. You can fix anything on a computer. So what if the vocals are a wee (little) bit flat here and there? That's how it was on the night."
