UB40 Tour Info
UB40 are Britain’s greatest reggae artists and have survived more than 30 years in the music business and have clocked up more than 40 million record sales worldwide with songs like Kingston Town and Red, Red Wine. They released a Top 5 single in the UK in February 1980 and, in 1981, released a brace of albums, ‘Present Arms’ and ‘Present Arms In Dub’.
Their breakthrough came with the hit single, ‘Red, Red Wine’. The song topped the British singles charts in 1983 and, after renewed promotion following the 1988 Nelson Mandela Concert at Wembley, the single reached the number 1 spot in the US. The band’s initial line up lasted for 30 years from the band’s formation in 1978 until front-man Ali Campbell’s departure from the band in 2008.
Since that time, two other founding members (Mickey Virtue and Astro) have also left the band, but the trio of Campbell, Virtue, and Astro have since reformed UB40. These three founding members are now embarking on a huge world tour, which the fans have been crying out for, playing all the hits and new tracks from the forthcoming album, which will be released later in 2014. This is a show not to be missed for lovers of Reggae and Caribbean music.
