Your story sounds familiar. I was listening UB40 more than 20 years ago and I took my 16 year old son to the St-Lucia concert this weekend. He really enjoyed them (me too). Great music never gets old !

Have just got tickets for Bournemouth in December; first saw them in Poole in 1980 or 1981, and every time since then when they have come down here. Didn't think I'd be a 50-year-old going to see them!

Better still, got to see (after 30+ years)Toots and the Maytals in Brighton last year ... and our daughter saw them in Barcelona on the same tour!

Hi I new here - just to say I am a 46 year young Nan who has been following them since the begining. My daughter is also a fan, she first came to see them with me at Milton Keynes. I am only hoping that they are going long enough to take my grandson to see them (he's only 2 months old.

As usual me, my sister-in-law and her sister will be going to see them at Wembley & Birmingham

Big luv

I'm also an "oldie" at 45, and have been following them since food for thought, even my kids know all their songs (they had no choice they had to listen)
