Britain’s greatest reggae band, and one of the world’s most
commercially successful bands of all time, UB40, is set to perform live in Malaysia for
an exclusive show at KL LIVE on 30 March. Organized by The Livescape Group, the one-night-only show is set to attract over 3,000 fans of all ages singing and grooving along to the legendary musicians’ tunes.
The four-time Grammy Award nominees are also one of the world’s bestselling artistes with over 70 million albums sold worldwide, and are known for their unique blend of reggae, pop, dub and ska sound. The band was first formed in 1978 and has had over 50 singles in the UK charts, and also a nomination for the Best British Group at the Brit Award.
UB40’s breakthrough came with their hit single, Red, Red Wine, which topped the British singles chart and reached the number one spot in the US. Other popular songs by the band include I Got You Babe, recorded with Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders, Rat In The Kitchen and Can’t Help Falling In Love, which topped the U.S. pop chart for seven consecutive weeks.
“We are thrilled to have UB40 returning to Malaysia to perform their popular hit songs so fans can look forward to a selection of both their cover and original music as well as songs from their newest album. Tickets to the show are limited as we want to provide audiences with an up-close and personal experience, so I urge fans to purchase them early to avoid disappointment”, Rahul Kukreja, Director of Live Events of The Livescape Group said.
The band’s initial line up lasted for 30 years from the band’s formation in 1978 until front-man Ali Campbell’s departure from the band in 2008. Since that time, two other founding members; Mickey Virtue, and Astro, have also left the band, and the trio of Campbell, Virtue, and Astro have since formed UB40 Reunited. These three
founding members are now embarking on a huge world tour, which the fans have been crying out for and Singapore will be one of their stops for the tour.
“UB40 Live in Malaysia featuring Ali Campbell, Mickey Virtue and Astro” will take place at KL LIVE on 30 March 2016 at 8.00PM. Limited early bird tickets to the show are priced at RM 158 and RM258 for VIP tickets. The rest of the tickets to the show are priced at RM188 for general tickets and RM288 for VIP.
