UB40 in concert at Sala Razzmatazz

Their debut album 'Signing Off' is considered by many to be one of the best British reggae albums.

UB40 is an iconic English group with a very wide fan base around the world. They play pop reggae and dub and were founded in Birmingham, England in 1978. Their name comes from the unemployment application form used in the UK. The band’s eight members: Alistair Campbell, Robin Campbell, James Brown, Earl Falconer, Norman Hassan, Brian Travers, Michael Virtue and Astro have been friends since childhood; are from different ethnic backgrounds and are all working class. In 1983, with the release of their own version of Neil Diamond’s Red Red Wine (included in the covers album Labour of Love) the band won its first success and made the subsequent leap to fame. In 2010 the group was still active and playing international concerts although Ali Campbell, vocalist left the band in 2008 and is currently recording with and promoting a new group called The Dep Band.

Their debut album 'Signing Off' is considered by many to be one of the best British reggae albums and marked the beginning of a career that saw more than forty UK Top 40 singles and the sale of over 100 million records around the world. The date with UB40 is the 17th of April at Sala Razzmatazz. Additional information is available here.
