Missus has just booked tickets for the crap UB40 instead of Ali et al. Are they as crap as I’m thinking or are they worth a watch?

They're shit mate, well i say "they" i mean Duncan.

Seen them once, seen Ali loads. For me Ali is the voice of UB40. Shame they can't reunite and feck Duncan off.

Saw the documentary on them the other day.

There is NO chance of them making up; they hate each other.

Sad to see

They are worse than crap.

Went to see them with steel pulse, UB40 was on afterwards, after 30 minutes of so, we looked at each other and agreed it was shite and left.

I know I've seen it. Look at where the shit UB40 play (racetracks etc) and look at Ali and Astro play (sold out arenas across the world) should answer the original question.

The original UB40 were shit. Now there are 2 shit UB40's.

Duncan i just a piss tramp from the goose in selly oak. Awful to think he could front any band let alone them.

Ali, astro etc are quality on the other hand. Butts park last year amazing. York this year amazing. Booked for march next year already

They’re alright if you’ve had a few. Ignore this lot

Thank God for these. Thought I was the only Brummie who found them boring. BTW, I worked with their cousin (the Campbells} till a couple of months back- more chance of hell freezing over than the band reforming apparantly..

What’s your music of choice then?
20:27, Wed 10 Oct
Very eclectic to be honest, anything from a bit of early soul, indie, brit pop, heavy metal, just despise queen, ub40 and Robbie Williams in no particular order

shocking to be so lacking in taste, along with ELO the only world class bands out of Brum (not into heavy metal!)
Ali Campbell got one of greatest voices ever!

What happened?

My understanding from afar is that Ali wanted more ££&​pound;£££££ so decided to go solo, and got the hump when UB40 continued using the name with his brother singing

Seems to be because nobody was controlling the UB40 accounts, and suddenly they were bankrupt. Ali C went solo and got butthurt that they brought in Duncan as a replacement.

There was also a thing that Ali didn't go to his father's funeral, although, to be fair, he was in New Zealand at the time.
