B40 to be supported by Kiwi reggae heroes House of Shem

The legendary UB40 will return to New Zealand next month and just announced as their support act is Aotearoa’s very own House of Shem.

UB40 will play Horncastle Arena in Christchurch on Friday, November 17 and TrustsArena in Auckland on Saturday, November 18.

UB40 was at the forefront of the global reggae revival throughout the 80s and 90s, becoming a household name with hits such as ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’, ‘Kingston Town’ and ‘Here I Am’.

Filling the charts with their own songs and creating seminal versions of some of the world’s greatest tunes, UB40 crossed radio formats and their songs are still blasted on the airwaves to this day. Following the replacement of long-time lead singer Ali Campbell with his brother Duncan Campbell in 2008, the band continues to tour the world with its founding members, Robin Campbell, Earl Falconer, Brian Travers, Jimmy Brown and Norman Hassan.

UB40 will be joined on their New Zealand tour by Kiwi reggae act House of Shem.

Formed in 2005, the trio gained notoriety in 2008 with their debut album, KEEP IT RISING.The band went on to release a string of successful songs and records, earning two Gold albums certifications, as well as several Maori Music Awards and nominations in the VNZMAs.

They’ve also taken Kiwi reggae to the world, touring the United States and Europe and playing international festivals such as Reggae on the River and Island Reggae Fest.

In 2017 House of Shem released new music, including the single ‘Anything You Ask For’, written, recorded and self-produced in Hawaii.

Don’t miss your chance to see two of the world’s finest reggae bands sharing the same stages in New Zealand this November.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
