Agreed, its just shameful! I saw a huge poster advertising him over the weekend in London mostly filled with his face and the wording "the true voice of ub40" everything was in small print underneath Its all very very wrong!

"what they said"


Will this ever end??? Why can't their management just Understand that you can't carry on hoodwinking/fooling the General Public with announcing artists that they are not gonna see,Its such a low act in order to try generate a little more Filthy Lucre..
What has happened to Ali,?? I find it very sad in truth.. its so desperate for such a once great artist.

For the sake of Robin and Duncan respect, I've always had some reservations regarding the strong feelings against Ali.
But I have to say now that the man has really gone out of his mind.

I truly thought that he had enough talent to push him forward and leave all the controversy behind... but here we go again

WTF is this all about? it must be based on a desperate financial situation .... hence the desperate attempt of recovery... it is clearly a one shot attempt of making money... 'cause he knows that he won't fool the fans twice...

UB40's Ali Campbell???? This is getting beyond a joke now. In anyone's eyes this gives the impression that he is still with the band. I was as upset as anyone when he left the band and was hoping to enjoy concerts and music from both arttists. He really needs to review his behaviour. He can't blame anyone else. He needs to stand up and be counted.

Best regards

Chronic

I just find it slightly bizarre that the only band NOT to play at that concert have the biggest (by about 75%) lettering! Same goes for Curacao's poster- I wonder how the other artists must feel about that?
Thats all I'm saying on the matter
