UB40 will play a show at Birmingham’s NIA on April 17 2015.

Britain’s biggest reggae band will embark on a world tour that will now include a hometown show at the NIA.

This version of UB40 features the three founding members Ali, Mickie and Virtue.

UB40 have gathered more than 70 million album sales worldwide over a 30 career, including hits Red, Red Wine, I Got You Babe and Kingston Town.

Their world tour will first come to the UK in December 2014, with a handful of shows scheduled, including one at Birmingham’s O2 Academy.

They will then return to play another hometown show in Birmingham in April.

There is some confusion with UB40 at the moment with two groups currently touring under the name.

The other version of UB40 features Duncan Campbell on lead vocals, brother of Ali Campbell who fronts the version of UB40 who will play the NIA.

Ali Campbell said of the rival UB40: “You can call us UB40 with the original singers and them a band with a singer who has never made a record.

“I’ve watched for five years as Duncan’s destroyed my songs and the legacy of UB40. It’s up to the fans now.”

The NIA is currently celebrating 23 years open with the NIA Memory Stage.

Using the hashtag #NIAMemoryStage, the venue are asking fans to post their favourite memories of the venue since it opened.
