The much hyped UB40 Concert featuring Ali Campbell has been called off by the organizers.

 

The Concert that was scheduled to take place at Kololo Independence Ceremonial Grounds on 21st December, 2023 has been postponed to a later date not yet communicated.

 

This was revealed today, 19th December, 2023 in a statement shared by Nbs Radio on Twitter explaining that concert has been called off due to unforeseeable event also to take place at the same venue.

 

The statement assures all those who had purchased tickets for the concert that “all tickets remain valid and a new date for the concert shall be communicated in due course.”

 

However, we had earlier run a story where the Legendary UB40 band poured cold water on a widely publicized concert dubbed ‘UB40 Uganda Tour’ slated for 21st December, 2023 at Kololo Independence Grounds.

 

In a press statement dated 23rd October 2023, the Group said they would not be performing in the concert falsely billed as ‘UB40’ or UB40 Featuring Ali Campbell.

 

“The official UB40 Group distances itself for the upcoming show in Uganda, taking place at Kololo Independence Grounds on December 21st, following headlines and publications promoting a ‘UB40’ concert, hailing a return for the first time since 2008,” the statement reads in part.

 

“He is touring with the name “UB40 Featuring Ali Campbell..” However, there are in fact no members of UB40 in this group and ex-member Ali Campbell is misleading fans and the general public by billing the tour as UB40 and UB40 Featuring Ali Campbell,” the statement reads further.

 

The Group explains that out of 5 founding members of UB40, Robin Campbell, Jimmy Brown, Earl Falconer and Norman Hassan, have remained in UB40 and have been touring and releasing albums globally for 45 years.

 

“UB40 wishes to disassociate themselves from this falsehood and hopes to return to Uganda and the African continent in the near future,” the statements reads.
