Britain’s greatest reggae artists have survived more than 30 years in the music business and have clocked up more than 40 million record sales worldwide, with songs like Don’t Break My Heart, (I Can’t Help) Falling In Love, Kingston Town, and Red, Red Wine. The band’s principle songwriter and venerable vocalist Ali Campbell will be joined by exceedingly talented percussionist/trumpeter/vocalist Astro and outstanding keyboardist Mickey Virtue, all of whom are founding members of the band.
Formed in 1979, UB40 helped define reggae music for a generation. The pioneering reggae troupe topped the UK singles chart on three occasions, earned multiple Grammy nominations and sold 70 million records as they took their smooth yet rootsy musical blend to all corners of the globe.
