Ub40 Tickets

It was the end of the 70’s when a couple of Birmingham lads started promoting an oddly named band called UB40. Fast forward more than three decades, UB40 is considered to be the best reggae band out of England. Still performing sell-out shows, these musical veterans will now be performing at their old stomping ground – England that is.

The Current Line Up

It would be a pity if you haven’t ever heard UB40 ever before. But don’t worry, even if you haven’t, their current tour has quite a few dates.

Coming together in 1978, UB40 is basically a group of friends from different schools across Birmingham. With a unique mix of ethnicities, ranging from English, Scottish, Jamaican, Yemeni and Irish families, UB40 has remained one of a kind with its unique musical portfolio.

The founding line up of 1978 has seen quite a few changes over the years. Lead singer and the band’s founding member, Ali Campbell recently left the band after a thirty year association. Similarly, Mickey Virtue, another founding member, also recently parted ways. This was soon after Campbell’s exit. Astro was the only founding member who remained with the band until November 2013, when he too, left to form the new version of UB40 with Campbell and Virtue again.

After a series of changes, new additions, and reformations, the current members in the original band include James Brown, Duncan Campbell, Earl Falconer, Norman Hassan, Martin Meredith, Tony Mullings, Laurence Parry and Brian Travers.


UB40 - What Does it Even Mean?

You’ve got to admit it’s a strange name for a band. However, there is an interesting story behind it. The name “UB40” was chosen as a reference to the document issued to the unemployed who received benefits from the UK government. For this reason UB40 stood for the ‘Unemployment Benefit, Form 40’.

This name was chosen in keeping with the struggle some of the band members faced in their earlier years. The choice at that time was simple: if you’ve left school early, you can do two things; either work in one of the many local factories, like Robin Campbell did, or wander aimlessly, waiting for something to happen. The members of UB40 came from working-class homes, and some of them had to scrape by on less than £8 a week. The band’s name is simply a reflection of the struggles its members had to go through over the years.


Everyone’s Invited!

With more than 50 singles in the UK Singles Chart, the band has enjoyed considerable international success over the years. Four time Grammy Award nominee for Best Reggae Album and a 1984 Brit Award nomination for the Best British Group with winner of the NME Award for Best New Artist in 1980, UB40 is one of the world’s best selling talents. With over 70 million records sold, it’s hard to see why its so.

UB40 has collaborated with a series of famous artists, including the likes of Pato Banton, Bitty McLean, Madness, Chrissie Hynde, Robert Palmer Lady Saw, Japanese artist Mikidozan, Hunterz, French artist Nuttea, Afrika Bambaataa and 808 State.

Throughout their illustrious career, they have performed sell-out shows at venues all around the globe, spreading the reggae rage in far off places, such as Russia and South America etc. They have performed twice at the Night of the Proms, in 2000 and 2006. In 2006, the band was also nominated for the prestigious Grammy Award in the reggae category for their album Who You Fighting For.

Notable singles from the band’s discography include Kingston Town, I’ll be your Baby Tonight, Higher Ground, Come Back Darling, Please Don’t Make Me Cry, Cherry Oh Baby and If It Happens Again.

With all this under their belts, these legendary musicians are now coming to your town, to perform their greatest hits live, just for you! In one of their most historic tours to date, UB40 will bring you evenings full of entertainment, taking you on a sweet trip down memory lane.

So be sure to get your tickets as soon as possible, they are selling out fast. You don’t want to miss a chance of seeing UB40 live in concert.
