40th Anniversary Tour

The legendary British band UB40 celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2018 and announces the release of a new studio album and a world tour of more than sixty dates. They will stop in Montreal for a unique concert on Sunday, September 22, 2019 at L’Olympia!

UB40 formed in 1978, naming themselves after the unemployment benefit form, before 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 UB40 have forty UK Top 40 hit singles and – with sales of over 100 million records – seen their albums reside in the UK’s Top 75 album chart for a combined period of eleven years, making UB40 one of the most successful British groups of all-time.

To celebrate its anniversary, UB40 will showcase songs from new album “For The Many”, to be released in February 2019,  alongside many of their UK Top 10 hit singles, including ‘Kingston Town’, ‘Food For Thought’, ‘One In Ten’, ‘I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You’, ‘Don’t Break My Heart’ and ‘Sing Our Own Song’ and, of course, ‘Red, Red Wine’, amongst other fan favorites.
