Review: UB40 brings a naturally good time
Being on the Nugget showroom stage seemed the most natural thing in the world for UB40. Then again, after 20-plus years in the spotlight, the hot stage lights should be just as natural to the eight-man reggae group as the smooth beats coming from their drums. UB40 took the Sparks stage Thursday in front of an almost-full house at John Ascuaga’s Nugget. As I took my seat and the concert began, I was a little unsure what the night would bring. I...
