McManus Entertainment has chosen the first day of daylight savings on the eastern seaboard to announce an eastern seaboard tour by legendary reggae/pop outfit UB 40.
The band, famous for classics like ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ and ‘Kingston Town’, will play shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in January.
But it’s not just UB40 on the bill – Grammy Award winning superstar Billy Ocean is also tagging along for the ride, delivering his hits including ‘Love Really Hurts Without You’, ‘When The Going Gets Tough (The Tough Get Going)’ and ‘Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car’, as well as Big Mountain, who had a hit here in the ’90s with their cover of Peter Frampton’s ‘Baby I Love Your Way’.
It’s a pretty amazing triple bill – and tickets are expected to sell strongly when they go on sale on Wednesday October 12.
January 23 : Melbourne (Palais Theatre)
