UB40A British reggae band from Bristol seemingly named after a character in Star Wars? Are you having a laugh? Well, no, we're deadly serious - and so are UB40, still going strong after more than three decades in the business. The eight-man band with more than 50 UK chart singles famously formed while larking around in the dole queue (Unemployment Benefit, Form 40 - geddit?) - since which time they've taken their brand of reggae pop music all over the world, winning millions of fans. This concert at Shepherd's Bush Empire comes on the back of their latest Top 30 album Getting Over The Storm, awarded BBC Radio 2's Album of the Week.

 

About Shepherd's Bush Empire

The Empire is, admittedly, not the most comfortable of venues - the standing area is sunk so far beneath the main stage that anyone under six foot risks painful neck injuries if they want to watch from close-up. Still, the faded grandeur of this former BBC recording theatre, a fantastic acoustic, and the cheerful international population of Shepherd's Bush all add up to a fun live experience, and many musicians cite this as their favourite London venue to perform in.
