“We are always buzzing to come back to Australia. The welcome we get from the fans down there is special,” said founding member Robin Campbell.

UB40 has withstood the test of time, with the current lineup boasting all but one of the surviving original members, bolstered by the “re-energising presence” of vocalist Matt Doyle. The band has achieved remarkable milestones, including over 100 million albums sold globally, 10 UK Top 10 albums, and most recently their 51st hit single “Forever True.”
