The iconic Reggae group from the United Kingdom, UB40, has added a second show for O’ahu, Hawai’i.
With international success fueled by classic hit songs like “Can’t Help Falling in Love”, “Red Red Wine”, “Impossible Love”, “Cherry Oh Baby” and “Kingston Town” among others, UB40 made reggae a major portion of the soundtrack to the 1980s. There is a reason that after 30 years of touring the globe, fans still continue to sell out arenas and headline music festivals on every continent; the songs UB40 recorded are timeless.
UB40 with original founding members Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey have been touring since late in 2014, and even released an album on October 6, 2014, titled Silhouette. However, Ali’s brothers have continued on touring since 2008 called UB40, although with “a singer who has never made a record,” as stated by Ali Campbell to UK Press last year. Ali Campbell even went as far as to call his brothers’ band “The Dark Side”.
The Reunited Tour with UB40 is currently in the midst of a yearlong world tour. The busy touring schedule is underway in North America with dates in Canada and all throughout the United States, UB40 will soon be making their way through the islands with stops in Honolulu, New Zealand, Australia, as well as South America and home base shows in the United Kingdom.
On October 10th, tickets went on sale for Honolulu’s edition of the Reunited Tour. Tickets sold out for the January 29th, 2016 show in less than a week. Due to such overwhelming demand for UB40’s return to Hawaii and the Blaisdell Arena, a second show has been added for the same O’ahu venue on January 28th, 2016.
Tickets for the January 28th performance by UB40 go on sale November 28th. If you miss out on tickets for the second time, you pretty much out of luck, completely.
UB40 will continue touring throughout 2015 and as the calendar turns, featuring tour stops in New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia and their home of the United Kingdom.
