Nice review Anant. I love your words "What I've found out from tonight is that everyone in the world is a UB40 fan. Some people just haven't realised yet", great one! We will never forget our Shepherd's Bush experience on the Signing Off 30th Anniversary Tour along with the Troxy and Brighton Dome.

We can't wait to see for ourselves what everyone has been raving about with this tour. yours and all the reviews make us feel like we're there.

Peace,
Bagga....

Maybe we can catch up later in the year when we do a load more British dates.
Hey Jim,
You really can't go wrong taking risks in the set. Doing this gives audiences a deeper appreciation of UB40 and enhances the high levels of enjoyment they're gonna have. I wouldn't be surprised if many people will go looking for those songs they've never heard before or will rediscover them. In the States for example, as long as people hear Red, The Way You Do, Can't Help, Kingston Town, Here I Am, Cherry Oh Baby, Higher Ground, Homely Girl, maybe another 2-3 LOL songs, hey are open to hearing the older songs and newer material. With the big sound of the group, they'd love to hear more jamming it dub stylee too. Telling you man, the way things are going with reggae here, you cannot go wrong with adding MAN NEXT DOOR or LEGALIZE IT from the covers perspective. I have no doubt people will absolutely be floored with those two. You guys continue reaching new fans with each show as you are giving us longtime ones a brilliant time. I think the positive vibes and the positive light are shining on UB40. Keep it up man, Enjoy!
One Love,
Bagga.......

Cheers Bagga!

I think what I meant by that line is that it's impossible for anyone to dislike this music. Obviously this goes against all principles of music being subjective etc, but UB40 just sound brilliant at the moment!
