UB40 feat. Ali & Astro’s performance at Nocturne Live 2021 will now take place on Sunday 20 June. And the very special guests Jimmy Cliff & Aswad will still be performing on this rescheduled date.
UB40 feat. Ali & Astro will perform some of their best-known hits from their string of chart-topping albums. Expect ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘I Got You Babe’, ‘(I Can’t Help) Falling In Love With You’, ‘Kingston Town’ and many more hits.
Ali & Astro have been active during the lockdown, having recently released a cover of the Bill Withers classic ‘Lean on Me’ in aid of the NHS charities COVID-19 appeal.
Performing as special guest will be Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jimmy Cliff. Amongst his catalogue of hits are the anthems ‘I Can See Clearly Now’, ‘Many Rivers To Cross’, ‘Wonderful World, Beautiful People’, ‘You Can Get It If You Really Want’ and ‘The Harder They Come’.
Opening the night will be Aswad, one of the UK’s most successful reggae bands who scored a huge UK number one in 1988 with ‘Don’t Turn Around’.
Nocturne Live is a weekend music festival that sees The Great Court at Blenheim Palace turned into a grand arena with world-class acts. It can be an all-day affair with VIP dining in the famous State Rooms, a stroll in the palace’s vast grounds, or a waterside picnic. It can also be an evening gig for those who just want to hear their favourite live music.
Nocturne Live combines uniquely curated concerts set against the stunning backdrop of Blenheim Palace’s iconic Great Court. Also headlining at next summer’s Nocturne Live are Simple Minds, and David Gray celebrating 20 years of ‘White Ladder’. Joining them across this series of one-off concerts are Deacon Blue, Jimmy Cliff, James Morrison and more.
