80s band performed at the British Airways VIP Lounge
British 80s reggae band UB40 made a surprise appearance at the Taste of Dubai food festival on Friday.
The band, featuring lead singer Ali Campbell along and friends Astro and Mickey, appeared at the British Airways VIP Lounge, where they played some of their biggest hits, including 'Food for Thought', 'Red Red Wine' and 'Can't Help Falling in Love'.
“It’s been an exhilarating experience performing in Dubai, a city that has not only played host to some of the biggest and most talented music artists in the world but is home to an eclectic mix of people from different cultures... British Airways continues to serve passengers the very best of true British hospitality in the skies and along with the airline today, we hope its guests have enjoyed some of our classic songs today,” Campbell was quoted as saying.
"This year, we are delighted to have offered all our elite partners and VIP Lounge guests at Taste of Dubai a chance to ‘fall in love’ again with some of the most unforgettable British melodies of the 80’s," added Paolo De Renzis, area commercial manager, Middle East and Central Asia.
