Default Last nights show......Manchester

.....was just superb

The place was just packed to the rafters and everyone seemed to be enjoying it to the full.....plenty, plenty singing and dancing (even though there wasn't really much room to do any jiggin' about ). As already mentioned, the set list was brilliant and the boys were truly firing on all cylinders last night. Feel so pleased for them getting so much support from the crowds after the sh*t that's been thrown at them for the last few months (few years really)......warmed my heart right through. I think by now, you all know that one of my most favourites tracks "Love Is Alright" is included in the set and I have to say, Duncan has simply nailed that tune. Really do hope the guys include some more of these old classics in any future tours because it was an absolute pleasure to hear some of them last night

Was lovely to catch up with a few loonies as well (Morgs, Joolz, Version Girl, Nige, Andybluenoes) plus a nice surprise for my daughter and me to spend a bit of time with Brian and Laurence in the pub before the show......a couple of gents

Well done UB40.......you rocked Manchester last night!!! Proud of ya all

I can only echo everything you say, I hope the band are as proud of themselves as we are of them. Love is All......completely nailed! Love the current happy vibe here

Your review sums up the night perfectly! I loved every minute of it- topped off by my (being a groupie according to my kids) waiting out back to meet them afterwards- have waited so long for that moment- the only disappointment was I didn't get to see Brian- must try harder next time. On the plus side- I got a plectrum and a set-list from stage and had that signed by the rest of them.

Great review sal couldn't agree more.
I'm crap at writing reviews but you summed it up perfectly

The night couldn't have started any better when I turned round in the pub to see Brian and Laurence walking in
