UB40 – Speedy Reg

Over the years UB40 have had over 50 singles in the charts and have sold more than 70 million albums! The band formed back in 1978 and they’re still going strong. Last year we were treated to a new album, A Real Labour of Love, and now they’re touring. 2019 marks 40 years since the band first performed live and so this tour is called the 40th Anniversary Tour. Ali and Astro will be taking to the Belfast SSE Arena stage on Friday 22nd March along with their eight-piece reggae band. We’re promised a great selection of hits so get ready to sing along to Rat In Mi Kitchen, Red Red Wine, Kingston Town and many more.
