BRITISH Reggae Band UB40 have postponed their upcoming concert.

UB40 were due to perform at Venue Cymru in Llandudno on Tuesday, April 16.

Due to illness, the evening event has been cancelled; Robin Campbell, the group's singer and guitarist, is battling a chest infection and has lost his voice.

A spokesperson from Venue Cymru said: "Following doctor's advice and with a heavy heart the difficult decision of postponing the concert has been made."

The concert was part of a tour, to celebrate UB40's 40th anniversary.

UB40's greatest hits include ‘Food For Thought’, ‘One In Ten’, ‘Kingston Town’, ‘(I Can't Help) Falling in Love With You’ and ‘Red, Red Wine’.

The show was due to feature UB40’s five founding members Robin Campbell, Brian Travers, Jimmy Brown, Earl Falconer and Norman Hassan, and long-time members Duncan Campbell, Martin Meredith, Lawrence Parry and Tony Mullings.

A rescheduled date will be made in due course.

Venue Cymru will be contacting ticket holders with a new date and will be advising customers what to do if they are unable to attend the rescheduled date.

Any queries should be directed to the box office on 01492 872000.
