Ultravox on Tour in the UK

Could this be real?  Please buy me airfare and tickets!  I've not seen Ultravox since Quartet. (Perkins Palace, Pasadena!  Yes, with the giant building onstage that's on the Monument EP cover!) Interestingly, Billy Currie's website had a long blog, now taken down, which detailed bitter disagreements and negotiations with Ure, management companies, attorneys, and labels about various music business affairs.  (Its removal, presumably a condition of the reunion, erases an interesting chronicle spanning several years.)  Billy's website is still worth a visit, and I'm pleased to say his page on his collection of fiddles is still up, a page I find so cute and adorable, as you can sense the little conservatory kid still in him.
