Promises & Lies: The Story of UB40
Documentary in which members of the band recount their phenomenal rise to fame and speak with candour about their ongoing dispute.
One of the most commercially successful acts of all time, UB40 enjoyed decades of huge success, selling over 70 million records with global hits including Red Red Wine, Can't Help Falling in Love and I Got You Babe.
But stardom and fame came at a price, and the band found themselves victims of their own success - bankrupt and penniless.
Ali Campbell, Robin Campbell, Astro, Brian Travers, Mickey Virtue and Jimmy Brown recount their phenomenal rise to fame and speak with candour about their ongoing dispute that has split a family and a band as they continue to tour as two separate groups - both using the name UB40.
