Kicking off the 2017 Music Live season is legendary British reggae band UB40 who return to the venue on Saturday 20th May following an evening of racing on the main stage.

First formed in Birmingham in 1978, UB40 is one of the world’s bestselling bands and has sold over 70 million records both in the UK and internationally.  Most famous for producing the 1983 smash hit ‘Red Red Wine’, crowds will enjoy other classic songs including ‘Falling In Love With You’, ‘Kingston Town’ and ‘I Got You Babe’, as well as more recently recorded material.

UB40 will get a very warm welcome from Doncaster once again, we are delighted that they are returning for our 2017 season. Their songs really have stood the test of time and were the soundtrack of choice for many during the 1980’s and 90’s.
