We are UB40 featuring Ali Campbell and Astro, both founding members of the original UB40. We still continue to make new music and tour as the two original singers with our incredible 8 piece reggae band.
The original line-up of UB40 with Ali and Astro enjoyed huge success over a period of almost thirty years from 1979 until 2008, including number one albums and multiple top ten gold and platinum selling albums and Grammy nominations, four number ones worldwide and a total of seventy million plus sales.
Only with Ali Campbell, the legendary voice of UB40, reunited with Astro, can audiences get to experience the closest thing to the sound of the hugely successful original line-up of UB40 as all the hits are played. They can also get to hear these two founding members’ and UK reggae pioneers’ latest take on the genre.
UB40 featuring Ali Campbell and Astro have enjoyed lots of success with live touring and recorded music over the last five years, including top ten albums Silhouette and Unplugged and in 2018 they reached number two in the charts with the critically acclaimed A Real Labour of Love. They continue to tour the world and sell out arenas and festivals. Currently preparing for the 2019 40th Anniversary arena tour starting in Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii before UK and Europe, which will then lead into a huge tour of the US.
