Event description:

Chart-topping multiplatinum reggae-pop outfit UB40 today reveal national Australian tour dates for January 2017. With the band’s beloved original front-man ALI CAMPBELL at the helm, together with founding members ASTRO and MICKEY VIRTUE, UB40’s Australian return will be one of the most anticipated events of the year.

Returning to our shores off the back of lauded performances at this year’s Byron Bay Bluesfest, Ali Campbell’s UB40 will hit the stage in 2017 for all-ages appearances beginning at Perth’s Fremantle Arts Centre on Tuesday 10th January, followed by Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on Thursday 12th January, Melbourne’s Hamer Hall on Friday 13th January and wrapping up at the picturesque Sandstone Point at Bribie Island on Sunday 15th January.

Responsible for countless iconic global hits including ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘(I Can’t Help) Falling In Love With You’, ‘Here I Am (Come And Take Me)’, ‘I Got You Babe’ recorded with Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders and many more, UB40 are one of the most prolific and influential acts to emerge from Britain in the late-70’s. With Ali Campbell’s legendary voice at the fore, the band has notched up multiple Grammy Award nominations for Best Reggae Album, has sold over 70 million records worldwide and played at some of the world’s premiere music venues including London’s O2 Arena, the Manchester Apollo and Dublin’s 3Arena.

Since reuniting three years ago, original UB40 founding members Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue have developed into a formidable touring outfit. Their world tours have included visits to North and South America, Nigeria, South Africa, Dubai, Europe and Papua New Guinea. Currently in the midst of a sell-out North America and Canada tour, UB40 will land in Australia to deliver their distinctive rootsy musical mélange to audiences around the country.

In 2014, UB40 featuring Ali Campbell, Astro & Mickey Virtue released a critically acclaimed Top 10 album, ‘Silhouette’, showcasing the outfit’s unique brand of reggae-pop across thirteen tracks including single ‘I Want You’. The band has plans to release a new studio album later this year.

“Ali’s voice is as flawlessly soothing live as it is on record… UB40 may be 38 years old but like the red, red wine they extol the virtues of, they’ve matured to perfection.” – MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS, April 2016

“Campbell’s voice sounded terrific as the band sent the audience home with a one-two of their most popular covers, Many Rivers to Cross and Can’t Help Falling in Love. Judging by the crowd’s reaction, the band’s first appearance at Bluesfest won’t be their last.” – SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, Bluesfest 2016

“With the return of Ali Campbell to the vocal duties, expectations were high for this return of UB40 to Australia’s shores. He showed that not only has he not lost any of his singing ability, he can hold a crowd in the palm of his hand. The full band were all class for classic cut Can’t Help Falling in Love and Al Green cover Here I Am (Come and Take Me). An excellent example of an old band returning and sounding just like they used to. They finished with Red, Red Wine, which would stay in our heads for the rest of the night.” – THE MUSIC, Bluesfest 2016
