UB40 replaces Daryl Hall on Saturday's Clearwater Jazz Holiday lineup
With less than 48 hours to spare before the 2016 Clearwater Jazz Holiday, the lineup is finally set.
British reggae-pop act UB40, featuring original singer Ali Campbell along with Mickey Virtue and Astro, will headline Saturday night's festivities. They replace Daryl Hall, who had to cancel his performance late last week due to a tonsil illness.
Festival CEO Steve Weinberger said that after a long weekend scrambling for a replacement, he's confident the group, whose hits include Red Red Wine and Can't Help Falling In Love, is a good fit.
"I think it feeds right into the energy we're going for on Saturday night at the Clearwater Jazz Holiday," he said.
Tickets to the fest start at $16 per day, $26 for Saturday and Sunday and $52 for the weekend. Click here for details.
