How tall is Midge Ure

Midge Ure's Height

5ft 6.5in (169 cm)

Scottish Singer. From the Independent: "[a common misconception about me] is that I'm ridiculously small. Midge implies that I'm tiny, but I'm 5ft 8in which is average I think. I just surround myself with tall people. Once, people from an early-morning chat show phoned me up saying they were doing a programme on incredibly small people and could I come on it. They were incredibly disappointed when I said I'm 5ft 8in. I think they were looking for midgets". From a few guys I know who have met 'Midget' on many occasions their estimate is nowadays he appears to be struggling with 5ft 7.

My experience is that men over 5'10" tend to ose body shape. They tend to look 'lanky'. ? Men below this height tend to look more well proportioned.

Really don't matter to me how tall Midge Ure is, as long as the music is good, and it is :)

On this site it does matter because it is about "Heights" and not Music. Hence the name, "Celebheights." You comprehend?

typical 5ft8 ish guy, who will always be called short and thought of as short, because it is nowadays, and unless you're 6ft2 and famous, people will always see you as shorter. most people cant judge height to save their lives.

Hi name is not short for "midget". If you read his autobiography, he explains the origin of the nickname. It is actually his first name, Jim (James), pronounced backwards: Mij (Midge).

His nickname "midge" is short for "midget" (i'm not making that up) To be called a midget in the late seventies punk scene you'd need to be well tiny!

Rob,

I Met Midge At Live 8,

I Can Assure You He Is Struggling With The 5ft 7in.

To Be Honest I Think He Is 5ft 6in On The Button, Perhaps You Should Change?
