UB40 have a deep history with the people of South Africa. We have supported the group from the very beginning and they’ve been incredibly warm and played their part in the anti-apartheid era which saw the group releasing a song titled ‘Sing Our Own Song’ which was dedicated to Nelson Mandela in 1986. Now, 25 years after their first tour of South Africa, UB40 are set to return for three epic shows.
Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue have up held the status as Britain’s most successful Reggae band of all time, a true music pioneer since 1979 and have been at the top of their game since reforming in 2013 developing into a formidable touring outfit. Fans can expect the group to perform their all-time classic hits such as ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘Kingston’ and ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’.
The group will be performing in Cape Town, Pretoria and Durban as they continue to bring their music to their millions of South African fans across the country. The group is in the middle of a sell-out tour around the world and they can’t wait to bring their show back to South Africa in 2018.
“We’ve had an outstanding four years on the road,’ says Ali. “In America, we’re playing huge venues that we last visited twenty years ago, and I can’t wait to play arenas in South Africa again. For me, it’s all about promoting reggae. At the end of the day, fans don’t care about what goes on behind the scenes. They only care about the music, and that’s what we’re giving them. We’re having a great time and we’re doing it in style.”
