In the summer of 1978 UB40 began as a group of young friends from Birmingham rehearsing in a local basement.
The band named themselves after an unemployment benefit form and it was in this recession ridden, post punk, Thatcher run England where they flourished.
Now after over 30 years and seventy million albums one of the world most loved conveyers of Reggae and Caribbean music are returning to Australia with original members Campbell, Virtue, and Astro.
Joined by Australia’s much loved, Blue King Brown, they’ll be performing at the iconic Red Hill Auditorium on Friday December 5th,
It’s going to be an amazing night.
