Nowton Park, Bury St Edmunds

UB40 head to Bury St Edmunds! They've had more than 50 singles in the UK Singles chart and have sold over 70 million records worldwide and now they will play a one off gig at Nowton Park as part of the Bury St Edmunds Festival.

The cover artwork for their debut album memorably duplicated an unemployment benefit card, with the title 'Signing Off' rubber-stamped in red, but it was the music that quickly worked its way into the affections of a young, mainly student crowd with its knowing lyrics, solid reggae rhythms and dub, instrumental passages, offset by warm horn solos and Jamaican style scatting. There was nothing else like it at the time and 'Signing Off' duly went to No. 2 in the UK and stayed on the nation’s album charts for 72 weeks.

They have been nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album four times, and in 1984 were nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Group.
