The UK’s most successful reggae band, UB40, will land in New Zealand in November 2017 playing all the hits and more including ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’, ‘Kingston Town’, ‘I’ve Got You Babe’, ‘Here I Am’ and countless others.
With over forty top 40 hits in their native Britain and sales of over 100 million records, the band are one of the biggest UK music acts of all time, and continue to record charting albums while touring across the world including regular trips to New Zealand where they have firmly found a place in the hearts of fans.
After nearly four decades of success including their hit singles, international stadium tours, festival headline slots and the dramatic replacement of long-time lead singer Ali Campbell with his brother Duncan Campbell in 2008, the band continue with their key founding members and songwriting core, staying true to and building on the legacy and ethos of the band.
UB40 are Robin Campbell (co-lead vocals and guitar), Duncan Campbell (lead vocals) Earl Falconer (bass, vocal), Brian Travers (sax and keyboards), Jimmy Brown (drums), Norman Hassan (percussion, vocals). The band also features Martin Meredith (sax) and Lawrence Parry (trumpet), who have both been in UB40’s touring line-up for over twenty years, and Tony Mullins (keyboards), creating a genre-defining synergy of horns and rhythm section that are uniquely UB40.
