2018-04-24 06:01

Britain’s most successful reggae band, UB40, is back in Cape Town at the Grand Arena, GrandWest on Tuesday 15 May, as part of their Ali, Astro and Mickey 25th Anniversary South African Tour.

The three UB40 members, Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue, will be performing as part of an 11-piece band. Fans can expect to hear all their classic hits like “Red Red Wine”, “Kingston Town”, “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and many more.

This 25th Anniversary Tour has taken the band to North and South America, Nigeria, Dubai, Europe and Papua New Guinea. They also performed to sold-out arenas in London, Manchester and Birmingham. Band member Ali Campbell says: “We’ve had an outstanding three years on the road. In America, we’re playing huge venues that we last visited 20 years ago.”

Real music pioneers, UB40 was established in 1979. After taking a break, the band reformed in 2013 and has been at the top of their game ever since, developing into a formidable touring outfit. In 2014 they released a critically acclaimed top 10 album, Silhouette, and have plans to release a new studio album later this year.

“UB40 is an old favourite among so many South Africans,” says Elouise Matthys, PR and promotions manager at GrandWest. “Their songs are iconic and extra special as they formed part of the soundtrack of so many people’s youth. It will be fantastic to see them playing at GrandWest. Fans should buy tickets soon to ensure they do not miss out on the show.”

Campbell says: “For me, it’s all about promoting reggae. At the end of the day, fans don’t care about what goes on behind the scenes. They only care about the music, and that’s what we’re giving them. We’re having a great time and we’re doing it in style.”

V Tickets are on sale at Computicket from R460. Doors open at 19:30 and the show starts at 20:30.
