Birmingham’s world-famous reggae stars UB40 will perform at the Cambridge Corn Exchange on Monday December 18.

The concert will feature UB40’s five founding members Robin Campbell, Brian Travers, Jimmy Brown, Earl Falconer and Norman Hassan, and long-time members Duncan Campbell, Martin Meredith, Lawrence Parry and Tony Mullings.

Fans can expect to hear UB40’s greatest hits, including Food For Thought, One In Ten, Kingston Town, (I Can’t Help) Falling in Love With You and Red, Red Wine, amongst many, many others.

Naming themselves after the unemployment benefit form, UB40 formed in 1978, before releasing their debut album ‘Signing Off’ in August 1980 – considered by many to be one of the greatest reggae albums ever released by a British band.

It was the start of a career that has since seen the band have over 40 UK Top 40 hit singles and achieve sales of over 100 million records.

Support comes from Maxi Jazz and The E-Type Boys.

The concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets, £40.25, from www.cambridgelivetrust.co.uk
