Ali Campbell's UB40 will play with special guests Toots and the Maytals at Vector Arena in February.

Campbell is the recognisable voice behind songs like Red, Red Wine, Kingston Town and I Can't Help Falling in Love and has sold more than 70 million albums worldwide as the front man for UB40.

The show comes after Campbell's time in New Zealand on the judging panel of the TVOne talent show, which finished last night.

Campbell and his band will be joined by Frederick "Toots" Hibbert, the man credited with giving reggae music its name with his 1968 song, Do the Reggay.  He has gone on to inspire generations of performers, with everyone from Amy Winehouse to Eric Clapton covering his songs.
