UB40 Red Red Wine Vineyard Tour Auckland Show Announced

UB40, featuring the original members Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue, will be returning to New Zealand in early 2016 for their first ever vineyard tour.

Four stunning venues were announced last week, with the Hawkes Bay concert selling out in only 3 and-a-half hours. Due to high demand across the country, organisers are pleased to announce the addition of an Auckland show.

“We have been inundated with requests for an Auckland concert” says promoter Jackie Sanders of Jacman Entertainment, “we are really pleased to announce that we will be heading to the beautiful Matua Winery in Waimauku.”

The original line-up of UB40 with Ali, Astro and Mickey enjoyed huge success over a period of 30 years from 1979 to 2008, with #1 albums, multiple gold and platinum selling albums, Grammy nominations, 4 worldwide #1 hits and over 70 million in sales. Now reunited again, they continue to take their smooth yet rootsy blend around the world and their live performances never fail to uplift the audience.

UB40’s chart hits include Red Red Wine, Cherry Oh Baby, Kingston Town, (I Can’t Help) Falling In Love With You, I Got You Babe, One in Ten, Rat in Mi Kitchen, If It Happens Again, Homely Girl…and the list goes on!

Matua Winery is a stunning backdrop in West Auckland surrounded by vineyard and the perfect place for an afternoon of great wine and music. Crowned Champion Winemaker of the Year in 2013, 2014 and 2015, Matua are making some world beating wines, including their Champion Single Vineyard Syrah – winner of 5 Trophies in the last year alone. Now that’s a glass of red, red wine.

UB40’s Red Red Wine Vineyard Tour takes place at Matua Winery on Sunday 17th January 2016 and gates will open at 2pm. The concert will finish approx. 6pm.

Limited earlybird tickets ($79+BF) will be available from 12 noon on Thursday 28 May via www.eventfinda.co.nz until sold out, after which tickets will be $99+BF.

Details of bus services from Auckland will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

A small number of VIP tickets will be available for $199+BF which include a premium view of the stage with preferred bar and toilet access.
