UB40 Forced To Cancel UK Tour After Injury To Drummer

Friday, 06 September 2013 Written by Jon Stickler

UB40 have been forced to cancel their forthcoming UK tour dates due to their drummer, Jimmy Brown, suffering from RSI (repetitive strain injury) in his wrists.

The dates affected are the Sky Dome Arena, Coventry on September 13, and the Planet Ice Arenas in Peterborough on September 16, Ryde on September 18 and Cardiff on September 20.

A statement from the band’s management said: 

“UB40 are deeply sorry for the inconvenience this will cause their fans. The band had been looking forward to these shows all summer but, as his treatment continues, Jimmy has been advised not to play for the foreseeable future.”  

On Monday the band released their new album, ‘Getting Over The Storm’, which is set to enter the album charts this weekend after receiving rave reviews and being chosen as BBC Radio 2’s ‘Album of The Week’.

Ticket holders can obtain full refunds from their point of purchase.
