UB40 featuring Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey have been announced to headline the evening entertainment at the 2015 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. Following the end of play on Friday 23 January, spectators are promised an outstanding show delivered by the legendary reggae band, who will perform live in Qatar for the first time, at the Doha Golf Club.
Formed in 1978, the band has achieved critical acclaim ever since, selling over 70 million records world-wide, and nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album four times. During an impressive three-decade career, the band has been touring the world performing sell-out shows, and will be making their historic appearance in Qatar this coming January. Thousands of fans will enjoy an unforgettable night with the band expected to perform some of their most famous hit singles including “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and “I Got You Babe” at the public village on Friday 23 January.
Tournament organizers the Qatar Golf Association (QGA), Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) and Commercial Bank of Qatar, are in full swing to host more than 20,000 visitors from Wednesday 21 until Saturday 24 January at the Doha Golf Club, for a thrilling weekend of golf and entertainment. Families and friends will enjoy day-long activities and spectacles, including the popular Golf Trick Shot Boys; a range of sports including mini basketball mini tennis, mini golf and mini soccer; a taste of the world with gourmet food on offer; and the Shopping Boulevard with a wide selection of merchandise on sale.
To kick start a special night of great music, the organizers are bringing along the talented Adam Baluch, a one-man band whose sing-along tunes and funky style will get everyone in the right mood for UB40’s memorable show. Using a loop station, trumpet, and a guitar amongst other instruments, the UAE born musician has been making noise on the region’s gigging circuits for years, playing catchy rhythms to handful of music-lovers as well as to large concert goers. His creative style has attracted a decent number of fans across the region. With his fresh sound, Adam is set to be the perfect opening for the perfect headline act.
And with Sergio Garcia playing on course to defend his title, and UB40 performing on stage on Friday after play, golf fans and families alike will have something to look for at the all-star 18th Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.
Abdullah Al Raisi, CEO of Commercial Bank of Qatar, comments: “We are delighted to announce yet another spectacular headline act this year. UB40 featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey are loved by many in Qatar, so we are delighted to host such a great act on stage to complement the thrilling golf action on course.”
