UB40’s three founding members are making a triumphant return to South Africa in the coming weeks with their ‘Red Red Wine Tour’, having wowed audiences across the world proving they are still a worldwide tour de force.
Britain’s biggest reggae band of all time will be performing classic hits and gems from their many critically acclaimed albums, including ‘Red, Red Wine’, ‘Kingston Town’ and ‘Can’t help falling in Love’, at the Grand Arena on November 5.
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, 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.
Tickets priced between R510 and
R745 can be booked via Computicket.
