He’s been through a lot in the last decade. Ali Campbell left the band he set up at the age of 19 due to management issues back in 2008; his own brothers took him to court, and he was forced to declare himself bankrupt.
But UB40 icon Ali is finally back on top – and is set to release a new album on March 2, aptly named A Real Labour of Love. This has been created by Ali’s reincarnation of the band titled UB40 featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey.
The 58-year-old Brummie reggae legend is also gearing up for a series of festival appearances this year, followed by a string of arena dates in 2019 – which Ali says will ‘definitely’ be coming to Brum.
