It's been a long time since i've responded on this forum. But i really have to let you know how i feel. It's hard to see how old bandmates dislike each other. I've seen UB40 last year in Tilburg, just after astro left. IT wasn't the best show cause duncans illness, but respect. When earl was singing his tune and hè had to sing About his friends the whole band smiled als astro's name came up. I felt the friction. As the setlist was nearly the same as all shows i've seen the last 3 years i decided to go home before the last song. This year i didn't Buy any tickets cause i assume the show is still the same.

I've seen Ali shows a few times. If i have a chance to go this show including astro, i Will go without a doubt. I don't respect the way he's dealing with his old bandmates, but i love the music.

After Reading About the bleeding ears caused by the volume even i thought iT could be a conspiracy.

Last week i read on a friends Facebook reggae is About uplifting each other. And then i thought About what is going on with UB40 and Ali. I know i can't change the world but i really had to tell you this.

Maybe If the new setlist really is different as last year, i'll decide to get tickets for Dordrecht at the last moment. I'll always go to the bar to get my beer at Kingston town and can'thelp falling. Really would love to see songs i've never seen since my first 1988 concert when i was 15. I've got mine, Hit it or as always were wrong again.

Big Love to all UB loonies

^ Ali has been throwing punches for 6 years.

When someone is constantly hitting you, at some point you're going to stop taking it and start defending yourself. And you probably won't like that person very much either.

The set-list is very different and you'll have a long wait for your beer but you will get it eventually

But most importantly it looked like no one was really enjoying the live experience, what I have seen of the real UB40 on this tour is of a band who look 100% focused and loving every moment of their time in front of the fans. Roll on Brum on Sat
We can hear you Paul...cheers
