Having previously sold out their 2015, 2017 and 2018 Australian tours, the quintessential UK reggae group will return to Australia in November.
The band has plans to perform in previously uncharted territory; hitting Canberra, Wollongong and the Gold Coast for the first time, as well return performances in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
“Our previous Australian tours were all so much fun for us – you guys definitely know how to party down under” said founding member songwriter Robin Campbell. “We’ve been waiting for a chance to get back out to Australia since we last left, so we’re looking forward to getting down under to celebrate 40 years and a new album, in one of our favourite parts of the world.”
The ‘40th Anniversary For The Many Tour’ will offer audiences a taste of classic hits like ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘I Got You Babe’ and ‘Falling In Love With You’, as well as tracks from the latest release ‘For The Many’ which will performed live in Australia for the first time.
With over forty top 40 hits in their native Britain and sales of over 100 million records, the band – who recently celebrated 40 years together - are one of the biggest UK music acts of all time, and continue to record charting albums while touring across the world including regular trips to Australia where they have firmly found a place in the hearts of fans.
UB40 are Robin Campbell (co-lead vocals and guitar), Duncan Campbell (lead vocals) Earl Falconer (bass, vocal), Jimmy Brown (drums), Norman Hassan (percussion, vocals). The band also features Martin Meredith (sax) and Laurence Parry (trumpet), who have both been in UB40’s touring line-up for over twenty years, and Tony Mullings (keyboards) and Ian Thompson (sax) creating a genre-defining synergy of horns and rhythm section that are uniquely UB40.
