I love UB40 since my childhood days many moons ago and I've seen every show they've ever done in South Africa so I was supper stoked when I heard this: Big Concerts has confirmed that due to exceptional demand an additional Cape Town date has been added for UB40 on Sunday 6th November at the Grand Arena, GrandWest. UB40’s three founding members will be making a triumphant return to South Africa in November 2016 with their ‘Red Red Wine Tour’ having wowed audiences across the world proving they are still a worldwide tour de force. Britain’s biggest reggae band of all time will be performing classic hits and gems from their many critically acclaimed albums, including ‘Red, Red Wine’, ‘Kingston Town’ and ‘Can’t help falling in Love’ Since reforming in 2013, the trio of Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue have remained at the top of their game, with highlights including their ongoing World tour, a sellout UK arena tour headlining London’s o2 arena, a huge sell out USA tour and critical acclaim for their new material in 2014’s ‘Silhouette’ album. Having embarked on their current world tour the three-piece’s step up to even larger venues is a testament to the longevity of their songs, as well as UB40’s status as Britain’s most successful Reggae band of all time, a true music pioneer since 1979. The new Cape Town date on Sunday 6th November is a fully seated concert offering fans the opportunity to see UB40 in an intimate setting.
