Date & time
Friday 7th October 2022
Having previously sold out their 2015, 2017 and 2018 Australian tours, the quintessential UK reggae group UB40 will return to Australia in March after having to reschedule the band’s original dates.
The band, best known for their classic tracks ‘I Got You Babe’, ‘Please Don’t Make Me Cry’, ‘Red Red Wine’ and their cover of ‘Many Rivers to Cross’ originally by Jimmy Cliff in 1969 are guaranteed to bring the party vibes when they take the stage at HOTA for one show only. The current line-up features Robin Campbell (co-lead vocals and guitar), Duncan Campbell (lead vocals) Earl Falconer (bass, vocal), Jimmy Brown (drums), Norman Hassan (percussion, vocals). The band also features Martin Meredith (sax) and Laurence Parry (trumpet), who have both been in UB40’s touring line-up for over twenty years, and Tony Mullings (keyboards) and Ian Thompson (sax) creating a genre-defining synergy of horns and rhythm section that are uniquely UB40.
