UB40 World Tour Set For 2019

UB40 is a pop/reggae band from the 80s that had quite the distinct sound and now, the entire world will be able to hear that sound once again. The band has announced a new worldwide tour for 2019, so UB40 fans, you’ll want to pay attention to this.

UB40, an English reggae band have hit over 100 million records sold and have had dozens of chart-topping singles including Red Red Wine and “(I Can’t Help) Falling in Love With You.” The band has had over 50 singles on the UK single chart and has been nominated for the Grammy Award for the Best Reggae Album.

Now, with the 40th Anniversary Tour, there is going to be a lot to celebrate. To mark the milestone, in addition to going on tour, the group will be releasing a new album, “For The Many”, their 19th studio album.

The band will also be releasing two companion versions of “For The Many,” as Brian Travers explains, “We have really enjoyed making this album, a huge amount of work went into it. It became a massive piece of work so, in addition to the regular version of the album, there will be a dub version and a collaboration version, featuring guest artists from all around the world.”

“‘For The Many’ is a great mix of reggae styles, while the different artists we have collaborated with will appeal to more fans and tastes in reggae – it really is an album for the many,” said co-vocalist and guitarist Robin Campbell.

“The 2019 tour is a continuation of our 40th year celebrations, as well as sharing tracks from our latest album. Twenty-three dates around the US instead of a few arenas means that our fans from all over the USA can get to see us much more locally and up close – truly a tour for the many.”

In UB40 prime time, many of their songs hit #1 on the Billboard charts including Red Red Wine,” “Can’t Help Falling In Love (From “Sliver”),” “The Way You Do The Things You Do,” “Here I Am (Come And Take Me)” and “I Got You Babe.”

UB40’s 40th Anniversary Tour will also kick off in early 2019, with shows across the U.S., the U.K., Europe and Australia. UB40 consists of Five of the Six founding members Robin CampbellBrian TraversJimmy BrownEarl Falconer and Norman Hassan in addition long-time members Duncan Campbell (vocals), Martin Meredith (saxophone), Laurence Parry (trumpet) and Tony Mullings (keyboards).
