UB40 Featuring Ali Campbell

UB40 Featuring Ali Campbell appearing at this event

UB40 are Britain's greatest reggae artists and have survived more than 30 years in the music business and have clocked up more than 40 million record sales worldwide with songs like Kingston Town and Red, Red Wine. The summer of 1978 saw the eight members of the Birmingham band, soon to become UB40, drawn together by their love of Jamaican reggae. Taking their name from a notorious British unemployment form, the band played their first local gig in Birmingham in 1979, and spent the rest of the year performing at pubs and clubs around the UK. British radio legend John Peel was so impressed with the group's first demo tape that he invited them to perform on his Radio One show in 1980. At the same time, the band were also asked to support The Pretenders on their triumphant national tour. They released a Top 5 single in the UK in February 1980 and, in 1981, released a brace of albums, 'Present Arms' and 'Present Arms In Dub'. Their breakthrough came with the hit single, 'Red, Red Wine'. The song topped the British singles charts in 1983 and, after renewed promotion following the 1988 Nelson Mandela Concert at Wembley, the single reached the number 1 spot in the US. Only with Ali Campbell, the legendary voice of UB40, can audiences get to experience the closest thing to the sound of the hugely successful original line-up of UB40 as all the hits are played.

East 17

East 17 appearing at this event

Founded in 1992, the group's name came from the postcode for Walthamstow. East 17 notched up eighteen Top 20 singles and four Top 10 albums, and were one of the most famous acts in the world during the early to mid 1990s. In contrast to the wholesome boy band image, East 17 were seen as a grittier and more 'real', blending rap and pop in songs such as 'House of Love' and 'Steam', and also tackled political issues with tracks like 'Let It Rain'. Their 1994 single 'Stay Another Day' remained at the top for five weeks and was also that year's Christmas Number 1, and is still a classic Christmas anthem. East 17 were Tony Mortimer, Brian Harvey, John Hendy and Terry Coldwell. Nowadays, the lead vocal has been taken up by Robbie Craig of Artful Dodger fame. John Hendy and Terry Coldwell make up the trio.
