Open Air Concerts
UB40 – featuring Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue - 27th August 2017
The south park at Holkham, with Holkham Hall as a backdrop and the stunning fountain display, was a prefect setting for the second open-air concert for 2017. Working with promoters, Liz Hobbs Group and Live Promotions, the concert featured UB40 as part of the band’s summer Grandslam UK Tour. UB40 - featuring original members Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue with a fantastic eight-piece band, brought their inimitable blend of reggae and pop greatest hits to the forefront of the summer calendar. The band have released hit after hit since they formed in 1979, achieving four UK Number Ones, not to mention 17 Top 10 tracks and a constant stream of singles over the decades, each of which continues to delight fans. Since reuniting three years ago, Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue have developed into a formidable touring outfit. The support act was reggae band, Radio Riddler.
