UB40 featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey announce a Midlands forest date this Summer. The band is the third and final headline act appearing at Sherwood Pines Forest Park as part Forest Live, the annual concert series organised by the Forestry Commission.

UB40 featuring Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue will be performing a set of classic hits that a generation of fans grew up with, such as: ‘Food For Thought’, ‘One in Ten’, ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘Please Don’t Make Me Cry’, ‘Kingston Town’ and ‘(I Can’t Help) Falling In Love With You’, acknowledging UB40’s status as Britain’s most successful reggae band of all time. Fans can also expect new material from their latest album, ‘A Real Labour of Love’, which is released on March 2nd.

Commenting on the gig, Ali Campbell, the legendary voice of UB40, said “We love the Forest Live gigs. We hope to see you there, so you can join in with the hits in such a beautiful location.”

UB40 featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey will be supported by Radio Riddler. Radio Riddler is Brian Fast Leiser and Frank Benbini from Fun Lovin' Criminals. They are lovers of Reggae/Dub music. They began their musical journey by remixing many artists in a unique Reggae/Dub style.
