Default Liverpool, well what a great night. Thank you all

Well what a brilliant show. The venue was amazing and the crowd was simply brilliant. A lovely vibe. Amazing. Everyone I spoke to said they could feel the unity of the band coming off the stage, the determination and love. It was a fabulous show with some new surprises. There are more to come of course, we just lost a bit of time. But there are some lovely thing being worked on. Thanks to you all, especially the guys we saw afterwards and all your kind words. The promoter was blown away and said it would be hard to beat that show, that just great. Watch this space.

Great news.

This is a huge opportunity. What better time to put Oracabessa Moonshine on the playlist? It's my absolute favourite. Would be amazing to hear it at Sheperd's Bush, I may even shed a single tear of joy.

Hint hint

Wish I'd been there...but hearing a few clips and seeing the excited words and faces of those who'd gone have me smiling....

UB40 are evolving...and with each change comes controversy....and then acceptance...

It was a fantastic evening, from the public soundcheck, to the last note of the gig. The rearranged setlist did the band, and us lot, proud. I booked this little trip ages ago but even if I hadn't - I'd have still gone at the last minute, for obvious reasons.

Didn't manage to catch up with ALL the loonies, but there was a strong presence, and the rest of the audience didn't do too shabbily either

Not sure what the few photos I took look like but I'll try to put up later, together with a slightly longer review. (Neph when I remember how to upload photos I'll let you know!).

UB40 are certainly going to 'Keep on Moving' - in the right direction!

Well done to the UBs for staying faithful to the music, and the fans for always showing their appreciation of their great work. Onwards and upwards ....
