UB40 (featuring Ali Campbell, Astro & Mickey)

In 2015, Ali Campbell, the legendary voice and principal songwriter of UB40 reunited with Astro and Mickey Virtue, all founding members of one of the UK’s biggest bands of the last 30 years. The band has enjoyed huge success all over the world with sales to date of over 70 million Top 10 gold and platinum selling albums. The Birmingham band brought reggae into the mainstream with Number 1 singles such as ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘Kingston Town’, ‘Rat In Mi Kitchen’, ‘I Got You Babe’ (with Chrissie Hynde), ‘Cherry Oh Baby’ and their spectacular reworking of the Elvis classic ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’. Since reforming, the band have returned to their position as one of the biggest selling acts on the global live circuit with headline festival shows and stadium and arena dates throughout 2015 and 2016. Their 2017 tour will be a celebration of their recently re-recorded Greatest Hits and with Ali's voice as strong as ever (rich, melodic and instantly recognisable), plus the redoubtable Astro lending strong vocal support and Mickey's keyboards to the fore in a band that includes a three-piece horn section, their lithe but potent sound will delight fans old and new.


The Blades were formed in 1977 at a time when punk ruled Dublin. They released two 7” singles ‘Hot For You’ (1980) and ‘Ghost Of A Chance’ (1981), and around this time they played a 6 week co-headline residency with U2 in the Baggott Inn. Further singles in 1982, ‘The Bride Wore White’ and ‘Revelations of Heartbreak’, lead to Paul Cleary being named as the Songwriter of the year ahead of Bono and Van Morrison. Reekus Records released their first album ‘The Last Man in Europe’ in January 1985 as well as the singles collection ‘Raytown Revisited’. Soon after the release the band split up as they became disillusioned with the music industry. In recent years though the band reformed for some sold out shows at the Olympia in Dublin which evidenced the love and respect that is out there still for Paul and the lads. The band always had a big following in Waterford and are delighted to return to the city for their first show here in over 30 years. The Blades have also just released their first new album in 30 years, ‘Modernised’ to fantastic reviews with Hot Press commenting ‘ From the opening salvo ‘On The Town’, Paul Cleary & Co. sound fresh and vital, with the Blue Brass section firing on all cylinders. Welcome to the New Blades, same as the old Blades !’


Propeller Palms make a triumphant return to Daytripper on the back of rave reviews for their second album ‘Old Dog, New Tricks’, a sell-out show at the prestigious Theatre Royal late last year, and a just completed 4 date tour of New York. The band have an incredible live reputation featuring the musical talents and voices of 10 of Waterford’s very best musicians, headed up by the showman extraordinaire Paul Butler. Their live sound has been compared to Springsteen’s E Street Band and Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue and you can be sure the Palms will be rocking it out for you in front of a hometown audience once again at Daytripper 2017.


Catch A Fire are a 7 piece Bob Marley tribute band who got together almost 20 years ago to play the music of Bob & The Wailers. Named after their breakthrough album (and first on Island Records) from 1973, Catch A Fire’s set contains all the classics from the early years when Pete Tosh and Bunny Wailer were in the band. So you can be sure they will ‘Stir It Up’ at Daytripper 2017 and get everyone in the mood for some quality reggae from headliners, UB40.


Letters to the Editor


    Paradise papersOne of the most surprising things about the release of the copious amounts of tax details of some of the richest people on the planet wasn't the names of the people involved but the fact that three of them were actors from Mrs. Brown's Boys. Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
