The Real Labour of Love Tour by legendary award-winning British band and one of the most successful reggae acts of all time, UB40 featuring Ali Campbell and Astro, will be coming to Kenya on February 1, 2020 at the Carnivore Gardens.

Speaking on their upcoming show, the duo said: “Our Kenyan fans should expect nothing short of a good time from us. We promise to make the Valentine’s month worth every penny. We are looking forward to entertaining our fans doing what we love best, and have been doing for the last 40 years.”

Ali Campbell and Astro enjoyed massive success from live touring gigs and even recorded music over the last five years, including top ten albums, Silhouette and Unplugged.

UB40 featuring Ali Campbell and Astro in 2018 reached number two in the charts with their critically acclaimed A Real Labour of Love—that inspired their worldwide tour—has seen performances in Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii before UK and Europe.

The duo will perform alongside Nairobi's hottest funk soul band, The Beathogs, among other local acts and legendary deejays to be confirmed in due course.

The legends are both part of the founding members of the UB40 and have sold over 70 million records internationally throughout their more than 40-year career. Tickets are available at www.ticketsasa.com andwww.mtickets.com for Sh5,000 (regular), Sh10,000 (VIP) and Sh20,000 (VVIP).

The concert is organised by The Academy of Dance and Arts.
