Our favourite ever British reggae legends, UB40 have announced a nine-date UK Grandslam Tour for summer 2017.
The band – featuring original members Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue – will be bringing their inimitable blend of reggae and pop greatest hits to the forefront of the British summer events calendar, and will be joined by special guests Level 42, also performing a host of their greatest hits, with several other artists to be announced to the tour shortly.
The UB40 Grandslam Tour will run from 20 May until 12 August and see the band perform at some of the greatest and most prestigious outdoor venues in the UK, including cricket grounds, racecourses, sports stadiums and country parks. Each of these shows promises concertgoers a first-hand experience of an outdoor event, with the addition of a real festival vibe; the result of the unique Grandslam format of the tour.
UB40 have released hit after hit since they formed in 1978, achieving three UK Number Ones (‘Red, Red Wine’, ‘I Got You Babe’ and ‘I Can’t Help Falling In Love with You’) not to mention 17 Top 10 tracks (including ‘One In Ten’, ‘If It Happens Again’, ‘Breakfast in Bed’, ‘Kingston Town’ and ‘Homely Girl’) and a constant stream of singles over the decades, each of which continue to delight fans.
