Production Manager: Edd Slaney
Edd took over production managing UB40 (featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey) for Touring Solutions in late 2014. Having worked with lead singer Ali Campbell for 5 years as his Monitor Engineer, Edd was perfectly positioned to take on the PM role having an intimate and unique knowledge of the band's live show and it's musical heritage.
UB40's position as the most commerically successful reggae band of all time (70 Million records and counting) presents a unique challenge for Edd as there is almost no part of the globe where the band cannot play shows to thousands of fans, keeping the diary incrediby full! Recent tours have included the islands of Hawaii, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Australia and South East Asia, with many more planned for the rest of the year.
The band's latest European arena tour bought the live show to 60,000 fans over the course of 12 shows and saw the band headline London's o2 Arena (as pictured above).
