Astro UB40 at The Rainbow, Digbeth Labour Of Love Tour 2009 by Karen Strunks

It was an absolute pleasure to have the chance to photos of UB40 at their Raise The Roof gig at The Rainbow in Digbeth this week.

UB40 came back to their roots gave their support to The Rainbow because it is under threat as it has received a noise abatement order from local residents (or resident). Although the landlord Kent Davis has agreed to build a noise insulating roof, there was still more funding needed. UB40 stepped in, and the sales from the tickets and takings behind the bar will go towards the new roof. Digbeth is a vital part of Birmingham’s cultural scene and the music in and around the area plays an important role. I hope that  The Rainbow has managed to raise all the funding needed. As the local saying goes “Keep Digbeth Vibrant!”

There are some more photographs from the gig over on my blog. Have a great weekend! See you next Friday :)
