UK, February 24th: Iconic English reggae band UB40 have today announced brand new dates for their 24-date UK & Ireland ‘Bigga Baggardiddim Tour’, kicking off in Castlebar, Ireland on 19 November 2021. Celebrating the release of the forthcoming new album “Bigga Baggariddim”, founder members Robin Campbell, Brian Travers, James Brown, Earl Falconer, Norman Hassan, and long-time members Duncan Campbell, Martin Meredith, Laurence Parry, and Tony Mullings will perform new tracks, alongside the band’s timeless classics and greatest hits, including Food For Thought, One In Ten, Kingston Town, (I Can't Help) Falling in Love With You and Red, Red Wine, amongst many, many others. Robin Campbell, Guitarist and Vocalist says: “We really believe this will be the last time we’ve had to move these dates because of Covid, we’re going stir crazy and just want to get back on the road again.” Norman Hassan, Percussionist, and Vocalist says: “We just can’t wait to feel the vibe & love of a live crowd, dancing, and singing, moving and a grooving! That’s what’s we live for!” James Brown, Drummer says: “It’s been so frustrating not being able to play gigs. It’s what we love to do. We can’t wait till we are back on the road, doing what we do best, performing on stage to a packed crowd.” 2021 sees the arrival of UB40’s new collaborations album “Bigga Baggariddim”, the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed and internationally successful 1985 release “Baggariddim”. Much like “Baggariddim”, when UB40 invited other artists to voice over their riddims, “Bigga Baggariddim” is an international celebration of Reggae, featuring New Zealand’s House of Shem, India’s Reggae Rajahs, reggae veterans Inner Circle, Tippa Irie, and Winston Francis, and upcomers Gilly G. Kioko, BLVK H3RO, and Leno Banton. The album also includes tracks with Pablo Rider and Slinger, who both featured on the 1985 “Baggariddim” album.
