Truth is tho we will be playing to just as many people as normal..there are 20 gigs afterall..except we are going to the people instead of them having to come to us in some out of town , incredibly expensive enormodome, £20 to park your car, £10 a beer, and a queues 11 miles long..we just want to do a tour where we see the citys we are playing in and can get a bag of chips after the gig....the out of town arenas are very sterile places, we see nothing but motor ways and dressing rooms hardly meeting a soul that doesn't work on the tour..anyway..got to get a break from this computer..

“2010 marks UB40’s 30th anniversary, three decades since we started this incredible journey. We had to ask ourselves “How can we celebrate? How can we say thanks to the fans for their unconditional support?” We decided to go back to where we started, downtown to the heart of the cities and the venues where we played our first gigs, then perform our first album ‘Signing Off’ in its entirety, something we have never done before. Of course, there will also be some surprises, but we’ll save them for the night.”

In addition to performing ‘Signing Off’ in it’s entirely, UB40 will perform a second set on the evening featuring some of the band’s most loved tracks...

We will be playing two sets, there will be the DUB40 SOUND SYSTEM blowing the roof off between acts, there will be FANTASTIC SUPPORT BANDS

plus Pikey will perform his one man ballet in a see-thru peep hole mankini using the gift of dance to express what he feels in the rub-a-dub music..
Brian, YEAH sounds fantastic to me i'm excited about it it's been a funny old day, The whole of signin off A celebration of 30 years...YEAH

pikey will be doin his mankini ballet can't wait for that i'll have to take buttys and a flask don't wanna miss his rub a dub lol

I made a separate thread for this... should have posted it here, sorry.

No Sheffield date this tour?

City Hall is an option?
