Iconic reggae band UB40 featuring original founding members Ali Campbell, Astro, and Mickey Virtue, are returning to Maui to perform at the MACC in the A&B Amphitheater on Friday, January 20. The group who defined reggae music for a generation, produced multiple Top 10 gold- and platinum-selling albums, four #1 hits worldwide, and multiple Grammy nominations. The band has sold more than 70 million units worldwide. UB40 is returning to Maui after a sold-out performance last January. Hana Hou!
The band, formed in 1979 in Birmingham, England, pooled a diverse set of influences to put a fresh, indigenous slant on Jamaican reggae. After encouragement from Chrissie Hynde, who offered them support slots with her chart-topping band, the Pretenders, they recorded their independently released debut album, Signing Off, which became an unexpected #2 album and gave them the conviction to chart their own course. The group’s top 10 hits include “Red Red Wine”, “(I Can’t Help) Falling in Love With You,” and “I Got You Babe.”
