BRIT Award winners McFly took their name from Marty McFly of the 'Back To The Future' films and have had 19 hit singles including 7 UK No.1s in their long time together. During their run as being one of the UK's best-loved bands, they joined forces with fellow British punk-pop band Busted to form McBusted and went on to complete two massive UK tours. Tom, Danny, Dougie and Harry have each become household names in their own right but together they have had six sell-out tours and have sold over ten million records worldwide.

UB40 Featuring Ali Campbell & Astro

UB40 Featuring Ali Campbell & Astro 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, reunited with Astro, 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. They can also get to hear these two founding members’ and UK reggae pioneers’ latest take on the genre.
