UB40 Press Statement – January 23rd 2014

Following the announcement by three former members of UB40 of their intention to ‘reform’ to record a new album and to perform live under the name UB40, the five founding members of UB40 wish to make the following statement:

 

 “We are outraged at this latest desperate attempt by our former band mates to hijack UB40′s brand name, business and  legacy. As UB40 we have worked continuously for the last 35 years touring the world with our live show and promoting our recorded albums.

 

“As our fans know, Ali Campbell left UB40 six years ago citing issues with the band’s management, and has since pursued a solo career. In that time, Ali has repeatedly attempted to discredit his brothers and former band mates, through the media and otherwise, but this latest attempt to confuse and manipulate UB40′s fans is, frankly, pathetic. We are disappointed that he feels it necessary to behave in this way and equally disappointed that Astro has joined with him.

 

“UB40’s five remaining founding members Robin Campbell, Brian Travers, Jimmy Brown, Earl Falconer and Norman Hassan will be touring extensively throughout 2014 and the UK in March and April. With this in mind, UB40 are delighted to announce that extra dates have been added, including a second night in Birmingham on April 19th, with tickets going on sale from Monday, 27th January.

For all genuine UB40 dates please go to our official website, Facebook and Twitter pages at www.UB40.co.uk ,  facebook.com/ub40official and @UB40official.

 

“As for Ali, Mickey and Astro, the matter is now in the hands of our lawyers”.
