UB40 featuring Ali Campbell, Astro & Mickey – 2nd SHOW

UB40, featuring legendary founders Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue with special guests Matisyahu and Raging Fyah will return to the Starlight Theater stage as part of the band’s U.S. Summer Tour at 7:20 p.m., Friday, July 28, at Pala Casino Spa & Resort. UB40’s performance last August at Pala was a sellout.

UB40’s new two-CD package, “Unplugged + Greatest Hits” was released in late November on UMC and already has gone Silver in the U.K. “Unplugged” offers an inventive new spin on UB40’s early gems plus the huge hits with which they later wooed the world. Among the highlights on the album is a new version of “I Got You Babe,” featuring Ali’s 22-year-old daughter, Kaya Campbell, who sings the lyrics originally performed by Chrissie Hynde when the track topped the UK charts in 1985.

That pop standard is one of four number-one singles on “Unplugged”, which also contains new takes of “(I Can’t Help) Falling In Love With You,” “Red, Red Wine” – complete with a fresh Astro talk-over in an acoustic style – and a new version of “Baby Come Back” featuring Pato Banton, the Birmingham reggae star who took the song to the top of the charts with UB40 in 1994.

Since reuniting three years ago, lead vocalist Campbell, Astro and Mickey have developed into a formidable touring outfit with an 11-piece touring ensemble, complete with a three-piece horn section.
Formed in 1979, UB40 helped define reggae music for a generation, transforming its working class roots into a global clarion call. The pioneering reggae troupe topped the UK singles chart on three occasions, earned multiple Grammy nominations and sold 70 million records worldwide as it took its smooth, yet rootsy, musical blend to all corners of the globe.

Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo and TOTO

Two multi-Grammy Award winning groups, Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo and TOTO, will team up this summer for a co-headline run of shows in North America and one stop will be the Starlight Theater at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, August 31, at Pala Casino Spa & Resort.

Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo are a powerhouse duo. Since 1979, Benatar and Giraldo have formed one of the most successful partnerships in music history. During their nearly four-decade career, they have won an unprecedented, four consecutive Grammy awards as well as three American Music awards.

Their undeniable chemistry, Benatar’s mezzo-soprano vocal range and Giraldo’s trail blazing work as a producer, guitarist and songwriter created some of rock’s most memorable hits. These include, “Promises in the Dark”, “Hell is For Children”, “We Live For Love”, “Love Is A Battlefield”, “Hit me with Your Best Shot” and “We Belong”. Earlier this year, they recorded “Shine”, a new song written with Linda Perry, celebrating women’s rights around the world.

With close to 40 years together and literally thousands of credits, including the biggest selling album of all time: Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and accolades to their names, TOTO remains one of the top selling touring and recording acts in the world.

In 2015, Toto released their first new studio album in ten years – TOTO XIV. The album exhibited world-class musicianship, masterful arrangements, topical lyrical commentary, and melodies that the collective talents of Lukather, Paich, Porcaro, Williams and their assembled band-mates brought to life. It debuted Top 10 in nine countries around the world and became their most successful album since 1988 in the U.S. and UK.

In 2016 they released the Blu-Ray/DVD title Live At Montreux which quickly charted Top Five or better around the globe as well. With the band’s 40th Anniversary coming up in 2018, TOTO has major plans in the works to celebrate their enduring career.
