S4 PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS

The UK’s most successful reggae band, UB40, will land in Australia this November for a national tour, including a bunch of regional dates seeing the band play from the city skylines of Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne, all the way through to the beach side havens of Coffs Harbour, Newcastle, Cairns and The Gold Coast.

Naming themselves after the unemployment benefit form, UB40 formed in 1978, 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. The band’s latest Top 30 album ‘Getting Over The Storm’ was awarded BBC Radio 2’s ‘Album Of The Week’ accolade and received 5-star reviews from the UK’s music press on its release in September 2013.

With nearly four decades of success that has spanned over forty hit singles, international stadium tours, festival headline slots and the dramatic departure of long time lead singer Ali Campbell back in 2008. The the remaining founding members, and principle songwriters, joined by new lead vocalist Duncan Campbell, have moved forward flourishing as they go, and keeping the UB40 legacy alive and well.
UB40 are Robin Campbell (co-lead vocals and guitar), Duncan Campbell (lead vocals) Earl Falconer (bass, vocal), Brian Travers (sax and keyboards), Jimmy Brown (drums), Norman Hassan (percussion, vocals).

The band also feature, Martin Meredith (sax) and Lawrence Parry (trumpet), who have both been in UB40’s touring line-up for over twenty years, and Tony Mullins (keyboards).
