How tall is Midge Ure

Midge Ure's Height

5ft 6 ½ (168.9 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".

@ Nicola Kirton - It must be equally amusing to hear a guy of 5’11.5” claim to be average!

Midge has just been speaking on 'This Morning', and very interesting he is too! He talked about the emergence of the Punk/New Wave movement, which I remember well, but he knows so much more.

Midge, which is a phonetic play on his real name, Jim, only backwards, doesn't look anywhere near 67 years old.

⭐ He had a short spell playing in the musical group Thin Lizzy.

Geldof always looked massive next to him...

Just reading with great amusement at Midge Ure saying he is of average height. When you are 4' 11" you go through life thinking anyone above that height is a giant.

πŸ°πŸ˜‰πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰ Happy Birthday Midge! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸ˜‰πŸ°

Oh, I remember so well when you were in the group 'Slik' and my friend Jenny had a massive crush on you!

You have proved yourself to be a really good fellow, taking part in the festival with Bob Geldof to 'Feed the World'. I wish you a very happy birthday. XXX

No more than 5ft 6in, and was never 5ft 8in. In my humble opinion of course.

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.

You are wrong here Rob because Midge is 2 inches shorter than Bono so I think max 165. (Look photos on gettyimages)

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?
