The iconic St. Augustine Amphitheatre is gearing up to host a night of reggae-infused magic as it welcomes UB40, along with special guests The English Beat and Maxi Priest, on Saturday, August 10, 2024.


Formed in Birmingham in 1978, UB40 quickly rose to international fame with their unique blend of reggae, pop, and socially conscious lyrics. With over 100 million records sold and over a decade spent on the UK album charts, the band has solidified its status as one of the most successful acts in the genre. Their socially conscious roots and commitment to addressing societal issues through music have earned them a dedicated fan base spanning generations.

The band described their journey from humble beginnings to global stardom: “We transcended our working-class origins to become the world’s most successful reggae band.” The band’s name, UB40, pays homage to the UK government’s unemployment benefit form 40, reflecting their deep-rooted social awareness.

The “Red Red Wine Tour” promises to be a nostalgic trip down memory lane, featuring five of UB40′s original founding members alongside long-time collaborators. Fans can expect to groove to classic hits such as “Red Red Wine,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” and “I Got You Babe” in what’s set to be an electrifying live performance.
