Further Particulars on UB40
Summarised from one of the local dailies. UB40 is looking forward to its performance in Fiji in March. The performance in Suva is scheduled for March 10 at the FMF Dome, National Sporting Complex, Laucala Bay. Tickets are currently selling at FJD50.00 and can be bought at South Pacific Recording outlets in Suva, Nadi and Lautoka. A second performance at our second city, Lautoka, is on 12 March with tickets being sold for it at FJD40.00. UB40 is a popular reggae band formed in 1978 in Birmingham, England. The band is multiracial and named after the former United Kingdom Social Security form for claiming unemployment benefits. The band has had a number of hits, including the most famous, Red Red Wine (a remake of Neil Diamond's song). Anyone wishing to come to Suva and book accommodation at the following links www.greatrentals.com/Fiji/15225.html or www.perfectplaces.com/FijianHome.htm, can have a ticket bought and charged to them at cost.
