UB40, featuring founding members Ali Campbell & Astro, have announced a run of shows for 2021. 

The Unprecedented Tour will call at some of the biggest venues in the country, including Utilita Arena Birmingham.

UB40 have topped the UK singles chart on three occasions and sold 70 million records.

During the pandemic-enforced hiatus, the band hit the headlines when they remotely recorded a lockdown single - a poignant cover of the late Bill Withers' Lean On Me - in aid of NHS Charities Together.

The release was accompanied by a socially distanced home video that featured Suggs, Jools Holland, Sir Cliff Richard, Shaun and Bez of the Happy Mondays, Kurupt FM, Lynval Golding of The Specials, Big Narstie, Frank Benbini of Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Phil Daniels, Scarlett Moffatt, Mo Gilligan and a cast of key workers.

UB40 featuring Ali Campbell & Astro visit Utilita Arena Birmingham on Saturday 24 April. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 31 July here.
