(Atlanta) UB40 featuring Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue are set to perform at Atlanta Symphony Hall this September. Tickets for this performance go on sale Friday, May 5th at 10:00 AM at Ticketmaster and the Woodruff Arts Center Box Office.

This performance at Symphony Hall will feature Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue, all founding members of the original UB40. Ali and Mickey left the band in 2008 and were reunited with Astro when he left too in 2013.

The original line-up of UB40 with Ali, Astro and Mickey enjoyed huge success over a period of 30 years from 1979 until 2008, including number 1 album’s and multiple top 10 gold and platinum selling albums and Grammy nominations, 4 number ones worldwide. Total of 70 million plus sales.

They can also get to hear these three founding members’ and UK reggae pioneers’ latest take on the genre.

When vocalist Astro and keyboard player Mickey Virtue rejoined forces with Ali Campbell, the spirit of their old band UB40 was never going to be far from the surface. All three were founding members of the iconic Birmingham reggae troupe who topped the UK singles chart on three occasions and sold 70 million records as they took their smooth yet rootsy musical blend to all corners of the globe.

German Bierfest @ Woodruff Park, August 26

(Atlanta) Atlanta’s German Bierfest was born out of the simple idea: have a day dedicated to enjoy German beer, food, and music.

With the idea to bring a taste of German culture to Atlanta, the festival grew and gained popularity over the years.

Starting out in 2003 in what felt like a backyard get together with 150 guests and a selection of 16 German beers, the Bierfest team moved on, inspired by the popularity of its guests. Ideas evolved along with location, beer selection and attendees number. Over the past year’s the festival has grown to become a favored ceremony, welcoming thousands of beer enthusiasts; featuring nearly 50 German beers in the one and only authentic, family-friendly German Bierfest in Atlanta.

We’re excited to celebrate our 14th Anniversary with our loyal guests and friends. Save the date for August 26th to experience Atlanta’s Favorite German Culture Celebration.
