UB40 ft. Ali Campbell & Astro
UB40 featuring Ali Campbell & Astro have announced a run of shows – 'The Unprecedented Tour' – which will call at some of the biggest venues in the country.
Like so many other artists whose plans for 2020 have been thwarted by the global pandemic, the band fronted by founding members Ali Campbell and Astro, and backed by their formidable 7-piece band, have taken the decision to tour in 2022 instead.
UB40 topped the UK singles chart on three occasions and sold 70 million records as they took their smooth yet rootsy musical blend to all corners of the globe. Between 1983 and 1998 the group produced three 'Labour Of Love' albums, bringing hits such as Eric Donaldson's 'Cherry Oh Baby', Lord Creator's 'Kingston Town' and Johnny Osbourne's 'Come Back Darling' to a new, global audience. They also topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic with their reggae cover of Neil Diamond's 'Red Red Wine'.
