Ure co-organised Band Aid, Live Aid and Live 8 with Bob Geldorf. Ure acts as trustee for the charity, and serves as ambassador for Save the Children. Ure is known for being the producer and writer of several synthpop/new wave hit singles of the 1980s, including "Fade To Grey" (1980) by Visage and the Ultravox signature songs "Vienna" (1980) and "Dancing with Tears in My Eyes" (1984), for which he was also on lead vocals. In 1985 Ure's solo debut album The Gift, which reached number two in the UK Albums Chart, included the UK number one single "If I Was".
