Reggae stars UB40 have announced a series of UK arena dates for June 2013 and a new studio album, ‘Getting Over The Storm’, which will be released later this year on Universal/Virgin Records.
The tour dates, which will take place at The Skydome Arena in Coventry on Friday, 14th June, and the Planet Ice Arenas in Peterborough (17th June), Isle of Wight (20th June) and Cardiff (Friday, 21st June), are UB40’s first since their sell-out tour of 2010, where the band performed their classic debut album ‘Signing Off’ in its entirety to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its release.
One of the most successful reggae groups of all time, with over forty UK Top 40 hit singles and sales of 80million records, UB40’s guitarist/vocalist Robin Campbell said, “We are currently putting the finishing touches to our new album, so we’re looking forward to playing this handful of dates and can’t wait to catch-up with our fans. It’s been too long, really.”
