30 May 2016

Big Concerts has confirmed that UB40’s three founding members will be making a triumphant return to South Africa in November

2016 with their Red Red Wine Tour having wowed audiences across the world proving they are still a worldwide tour de force.

Presented by Heart FM, Algoa FM, East Coast Radio, Jacaranda FM and Channel24. Another Big Concerts Experience. Tickets go on sale Tuesday 31 May at 09:00 from Big Concerts.

Britain’s biggest reggae band of all time will be performing classic hits and gems from their many critically acclaimed albums, including Red, Red WineKingston Town and Can’t help falling in Love.

Since reforming in 2013, the trio of Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue have remained at the top of their game, with highlights including their ongoing World tour, a sellout UK arena tour headlining London’s o2 arena, a huge sell out USA tour and critical acclaim for their new material in 2014’s Silhouette album.

Having embarked on their current world tour the three-piece’s step up to even larger venues is a testament to the longevity of their songs, as well as UB40’s status as Britain’s most successful Reggae band of all time, a true music pioneer since 1979.
