UB40 have released hit after hit since they formed in 1978, achieving three UK Number Ones (Red, Red Wine, I Got You Babe, ft. Chrissie Hynde and I Can’t Help Falling In Love with You) not to mention 17 Top 10 tracks (including One In Ten, If It Happens Again, Breakfast in Bed, Kingston Town and Homely Girl) and a constant stream of singles over the decades, each of which continue to delight fans.
Since reuniting three years ago, Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue have developed into a formidable touring outfit. 2016 has seen them return to the States, play Australia and visit the vineyards of New Zealand for a Red Red Winery Tour. They also made an emotional return to UK in April 2016, when they performed songs from the first two Labour Of Love albums on an arena tour that included sell-out shows at London’s O2 Arena, the Brighton Centre and the Barclaycard Arena in their native Birmingham.
The Grandslam UK Tour presents an excellent opportunity to see UB40 – featuring Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue - at their best as they bring their enthusiasm, passion and winning combination of chilled and upbeat tracks to the centre stage.
