RED WINERY: UB not missing this show if U don't want FOMO.

Purveyors of adult-oriented reggae since the early ’80s, UB40 is known for originals with a political bent (“Rat in the Kitchen” was a veiled reference to Margaret Thatcher), poppy covers of Neil Diamond ballads (“Red Red Wine,” anyone?) and irie versions of Motown hits (“The Way You Do the Things You Do”). The band is also one in a long line of British groups headed by two brothers whose feuding eventually broke them up. So while the iteration of UB40 featuring Duncan Campbell on lead vocals is currently touring the U.K., the band fronted by original lead singer Ali Campbell is playing on this side of the pond.
