UB40, an English reggae and pop band, will perform in Costa Rica as part of their "Red Red Wine World Tour."

The ban, currently formed by Jimmy Brown on drums, Robin Campbell on guitar and vocals, Earl Falconer on bass guitar and vocals, Norman Hassan on percussion, trombone and vocals and Matt Doyle the lead singer and guitar, will also feature several special guests opening for them on the tour, including The English Beat, Maxi Priest, Inner Circle, Third World, and Fastest Land Animal on some dates.

The tour coincides with the release of their 45th anniversary album, "UB45," which will be available everywhere on April 19th.

On Saturday, May 11, 2024, fans will be treated to live performances of global songs such as "Red Red Wine," "Can't Help Falling in Love," and "I Got You Babe." The concert starts at 7:00 p.m. at the Parque Viva Event Center in Garita Canton, Alajuela Province.

The Publitickets website offers concert tickets ranging in price from $96 to $145.

UB40 has had over 50 hits on the UK hits charts and achieved significant worldwide success. 

They have received four Grammy Award nominations for Best Reggae Album and one Brit Award nomination for Best British Group in 1984.

The band's initial line-up was ethnically varied, with musicians of English, Welsh, Irish, Jamaican, Scottish, and Yemeni descent. They've sold over 70 million albums globally.

The UB40 concert is one of many international artists' performances held in Costa Rica. Recently, Josh Quinlan, Anna Marie Wytko, Preston Duncan, and Greg Osby, prominent saxophonists in the United States, performed two concerts as special guests at SaxFest Costa Rica.

In April, fans of the renowned romantic music Australian band Air Supply will be delighted to attend the "Lost in Love" live concert in Costa Rica, which is part of the band's world tour.
