UB40 feat. Ali Campbell, Astro, and Mickey Virtue

  • How you know them: undoubtedly for their cover of Neil Diamond’s “Red Red Wine”
  • What you might not have known (besides the fact that it’s a Neil Diamond song): the name UB40 is a reference to a British unemployment benefit form, and Ali Campbell is the original lead singer
  • How they settled on that name: it just came to them when they met each other—while standing in the unemployment line
  • How they became known in Great Britain (and left unemployment behind): their strongly leftist politics, multiracial makeup, and close association with The Pretenders
  • Songs they’ve added a reggae beat to (other than “Red Red Wine”): The Temptations’ “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” Al Green’s “Here I Am (Come and Take Me),” and Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling in Love”—their biggest hit to date

The English Beat

  • Who they are: famed Two Tone pioneers of second-wave ska who began to brew New Wave, reggae, and soul in 1978
  • Who you’ll see on stage: congenial lead singer Dave Wakeling and his shuffling platoon of party instigators
  • How Wakeling knew he’d made it: when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame started displaying his distinctive, teardrop-shaped Vox Guitar at their Cleveland HQ
  • Reason to look forward to the future: Here We Go Love, their first original release in over 30 years
  • Reason to look forward to the concert: they’ll play tunes from their album-in-the-making
