UB40 – NEW DATE!!

World-famous reggae stars UB40 are set to mark their 40th anniversary with a US tour in support of their first album release in over four years. The band will play many of their seventeen Top 10 hit singles, including Kingston Town, Food For Thought, One In Ten, I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You, Don’t Break My Heart and Sing Our Own Song and, of course, Red, Red Wine. The concert will feature five of UB40’s six founding members, Robin Campbell, Brian Travers, Jimmy Brown, Earl Falconer and Norman Hassan, and long-time members Duncan Campbell, Martin Meredith, Lawrence Parry and Tony Mullings. UB40 formed in 1978, naming themselves after the unemployment benefit form, before releasing their debut album ‘Signing Off’ in August 1980 – considered by many to be one of the greatest reggae albums ever released by a British band. The band has forty UK Top 40 hit singles, sold over 100 million records and seen their albums reside in the UK’s Top 75 album chart for a combined period of eleven years, making them one of the most successful British groups of all time.
