UB40 have sold over 70 million records worldwide.
Their hit singles include their debut “Food for Thought” and two Billboard Hot 100 number ones with “Red Red Wine” and “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. Both of these also topped the UK Singles Chart, as did the band’s version of “I Got You Babe”. Their two most successful albums, Labour of Love (1983) and Promises and Lies (1993), reached number one on the UK Albums Chart.
UB40 return to their hometown of Birmingham for an exclusive Christmas this December 21st.
Enjoy an Exclusive interview Robin with Alex via YouTube:
UB40’s latest Top 30 album, ‘Getting Over The Storm’, was released in September 2013 and was awarded BBC Radio 2’s ‘Album of The Week’ accolade.
The band’s subsequent tour to support the release of ‘Getting Over The Storm’ began in 2014 and saw the band perform to 200,000 fans in the UK. It was the most extensive UK tour of the band’s career to-date.
Duncan Campbell (Ali and Robin Campbell’s brother) joined the band when Ali left in 2008. When the group launched he didn’t think UB40 would be successful!
Martin and Laurence have been in the band for over 20 years, and Tony Mullings joined in 2008.
