As original members of UB40, Ali, Mickey and Astro helped to define reggae music for a generation. The multi-racial band, formed in 1979 in the Birmingham suburb of Moseley, pooled a diverse set of influences to put a fresh, indigenous slant on Jamaican reggae. After encouragement from Chrissie Hynde, who offered them support slots with her chart-topping band The Pretenders, they recorded their independently released debut album, Signing Off, on an eight-track tape machine in the home of producer Bob Lamb. An unexpected #2 album, it gave UB40 the conviction to chart their own course. UB40 went on to dominate charts around the world, not least with the hugely successful Labour of Love series. The first Labour of Love album, released in 1983, yielded a cover of Neil Diamond’s “Red, Red Wine” that topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. The band secured two further chart-topping singles at home in “(I Can’t Help) Falling In Love With You” (also another #1 in the U.S.) and “I Got You Babe,” a duet between Ali and Chrissie Hynde and Ali and Robin Campbell also scored a number one with “Baby Come Back.”

The original lineup of UB40 with Ali, Astro and Mickey enjoyed huge success over a period of 30 years including #1 albums, hit singles and multiple GRAMMY Award nominations including Best Reggae Album. They are one of the world’s best-selling music artists with over 70 million records sold worldwide. Only with Ali Campbell, the legendary voice of UB40, reunited with Astro and Mickey can audiences experience the closest thing to the sound of the hugely successful original lineup of UB40. In addition to hearing all of the band’s hits, audiences will also hear these three founding members and UK reggae pioneers’ latest take on the genre. 

Consummate live performers with triumphant gigs around the globe, UB40 Legends Ali, Astro & Mickey remains as strong as ever with rich melodies and instantly recognizable vocals – delighting fans old and new.
