UB40 are very excited to announce their new 2021/22 Bigga Baggariddim Tour, stopping in 24 different cities/towns across the UK and Ireland, including The Centaur, Cheltenham Racecourse on Saturday 21 May 2022.
The show will feature some new songs for you from their upcoming album as well as the hits you know and love!
2021 saw 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..
UB40 formed in 1978 and have since transcended their working-class origins to become the most successful reggae band in the world, selling more than 100 million records worldwide and spending over a combined 11 years in the UK album chart, alongside 40 UK hit singles, including their three No.1 singles (I Can’t Help) Falling In Love With You, Red Red Wine, as well as “Baggariddim”’s I Got You Babe Ft. Chrissie Hynde making UB40 one of the most successful British groups of all time.
