Birmingham’s world-famous reggae stars UB40 have announced a major eight-date UK tour for December 2017.

Featuring UB40’s five founding members Robin Campbell, Brian Travers, Jimmy Brown, Earl Falconer and Norman Hassan, and long-time members Duncan Campbell, Martin Meredith, Lawrence Parry and Tony Mullings, the first of the ‘Cities and Towns Tour’ dates will be at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on Tuesday, 5th December 2017, with the tour ending at Manchester’s O2 Apollo on Sunday, 17th December.

The dates also include a UB40 hometown show at Birmingham’s 15,700-capacity Genting Arena on Friday, 15th December 2017.

Robin Campbell said, “UB40 are very excited to be returning to some of the biggest venues in the UK during our ‘Cites and Towns’ tour in December 2017. We are also particularly pleased to be playing such a fantastic venue for our hometown gig in Birmingham.”
Fans can expect to hear UB40’s greatest hits, including ‘Food For Thought’, ‘One In Ten’, ‘Kingston Town’, ‘(I Can't Help) Falling in Love With You’ and ‘Red, Red Wine’, amongst many, many others.

Tickets go on sale at 10.00am on Friday, 16th December 2016, available from http://www.seetickets.com/tour/ub40pre=ub2017

Naming themselves after the unemployment benefit form, UB40 formed in 1978, before releasing their debut album ‘Signing Off’ in August 1980 – considered by many to be one of the greatest reggae albums ever released by a British band. It was the start of a career that has since seen the band have over forty UK Top 40 hit singles and achieve sales of over 100 million records, making UB40 one of the most successful British groups of all-time.
