– Ali Campbell, ex-UB40 member
We originally formed UB40 to promote reggae. It was never about promoting individual band members - it is about the music and the fans. Nothing else matters. Welcome home Astro!
– Astro, former UB40 member
It is going to be great working with Ali again after all this time. We started on a mission to promote reggae music and that mission is still ongoing. Onwards and upwards!
Singer, Astro, who announced last Friday that he was to leave Birmingham band, UB40, has today said he is to re-join two other founder members of the band in a reunion concert.
Astro will join up with Ali Campbell and Mickey Virtue on December 6, at the IndigO2 in London.
The gig will be their first performance together in almost six years, although Campbell and Virtue have been playing together since both left the original band in 2008.
