UB40 Legends Ali Astro Mickey
Fri, Sep 22 at 8:00 PM @ Ruth Eckerd Hall
UB40 Legends Ali, Astro and Mickey make their way to Clearwater for their Ruth Eckerd Hall debut! When three founding members of UB40 – vocalist Astro, keyboard player Mickey Virtue and legendary voice of UB40 Ali Campbell rejoined forces – the spirit of their old band UB40 was never going to be far from the surface. All three were founding members of the iconic Birmingham reggae troupe who topped the United Kingdom singles chart on three occasions and sold 70 million records as they took their smooth yet rootsy musical blend to all corners of the globe.
Having reiterated their credentials as consummate live performers with triumphant gigs this year in places as far flung as Nigeria, South Africa and Papua New Guinea, Ali, Mickey and Astro are now turning their attention to the studio and a new album, Silhouette, that is an inspired mix of freshly-minted new songs and sparkling, reggaefied cover versions of classics by The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Chi-Lites and others.
