Despite the many unknowns in international touring, UB40 have stayed optimistic over the past 24 months, taking the time to perfect their brand-new live show, just for NZ audiences.
“We always look forward to trips down under,” said the band in a statement. “It’s one of our favourite places in the world to perform, but with so many uncertainties in the world these past two years, we felt it was far more important to focus on everyone’s safety. Now that borders have reopened, we’re finally ready to get back to New Zealand and perform the show fans have been waiting for!”
The New Zealand tour will offer audiences a taste of classic hits like ‘Food for Thought', '1 in 10', 'Red Red Wine’, ‘Kingston Town’ and ‘Can’t Help falling In Love With You’, as well as tracks from the latest releases FOR THE MANY and BIGGA BAGGARIDDIM, which will be performed live in New Zealand for the first time.
