British reggae legends UB40 have been announced as the guest performers at the Pine Cliffs Summer Gala on Saturday, August 5 at the Albufeira resort.
The band, which boasts an impressive repertoire and has four Grammy nominations, is one of the world’s best selling music acts of all time, having sold over 70 million records worldwide.
‘Red Red Wine’, ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ and ‘I Got You Babe’ are just some of the most popular hits the band is known for.
“We always try to surprise those who visit us by bringing renowned artists to the gala,” said Thomas Schoen, General Manager at Pine Cliffs Resort.
“This year is a special occasion as we celebrate the resort’s 25th anniversary, so we wanted a band that would in some way associate themselves to the image of this resort. With their solid and successful career, and vibrant musical style admired by several generations, UB40 are just perfect,” he said.
UB40 will be joining Joe Cocker, George Benson, Bryan Ferry, Lionel Richie, Michael Bolton, Kool & The Gang , Ne-Yo, Leona Lewis and Aloe Blacc on the reputable list of artists who have performed at the Pine Cliffs Summer Gala over the years.
The concert begins at 10.30pm, but the party starts earlier at 7.30pm with a cocktail party followed by dinner.
Tickets cost from €30 to €75 for just the concert, with ‘Premium’ tickets costing €475 and granting access to the cocktail party, gala dinner, concert and after-party.
