UB40 featuring Ali Campbell with Astro & Mickey Virtue, the founding members of the legendary reggae/pop ensemble that blazed a multicultural musical path with such global hits as “Red Red Wine” and “(I Can’t Help) Falling In Love With You,” are returning for a series of summer dates.
Due to the overwhelming success of their sold-out 2015 tour, the band is launching a North American tour, which includes a performance at The Amp, The Pompano Beach Amphitheater, on August 15th at 8pm. Tickets $25, $45, $65 through Ticketmaster.com. For more information, www.pompanobeacharts.org or call 954-519-5500.
UB40, which will spend the spring playing U.K and European Arena tour dates, have forged their signature high-energy, funky performances with an 11-piece touring ensemble, complete with a three-piece horn section. Since reuniting two years ago, lead vocalist Ali Campbell along with percussionist/trumpeter/vocalist Astro and Mickey Virtue on keyboards have become a formidable touring outfit with highly successful treks to South America, Nigeria, South Africa, Dubai, Papua New Guinea and Australia. The band showcases their enduring hits from their cannon of songs like “Kingston Town” and “Food for Thought” and others.
Formed in 1979, UB40 helped define reggae music for a generation, transforming their working class roots into a global clarion call. The pioneering reggae troupe topped the UK singles chart on three occasions, earned multiple Grammy nominations and sold 70 million records worldwide as they took their smooth yet rootsy musical blend to all corners of the globe.
