STEELHOUSE FESTIVAL REVIEW

And so to Saturday’s headliners, another veteran band with an unimpeachable back catalogue, UFO. As anyone who saw them on their recent UK tour, including the excellent show at the Wulfrun Hall in Wolverhampton, will know that they’re still in pretty good fettle, playing a healthy mix of old and new material, and they were well on form at Steelhouse. Anyone who uses ‘Faith Healer’ by the Sensational Alex Harvey Band intro music is going to have me onside from the off, but when they strolled onstage and hit the mark straight away with a terrific version of ‘We Belong To The Night’ , it seemed clear we were in for a pretty good show. It was almost exactly the same set as they’d toured the UK with in April, mixing songs from ‘Seven Deadly’ and ‘Conspiracy Of Stars’, their two most recent studio albums, with a good selection of crowd pleasers. ‘Lights Out’ came early in the set, although Phil Mogg sadly didn’t change the lyric to something like ‘Lights out in Ebbw Vale’ and halfway through

‘Only You Can Rock Me’ brought the house down and had the crowd in full voice. After that it was a downhill sprint to a triumphant ‘Rock Bottom’ with the customary extended guitar solo from Vinnie Moore and ‘Doctor, Doctor’, which, despite the treacherous conditions under foot, had the crowd bouncing up and down, then the only encore of the day, ‘Shoot Shoot’. You really can’t go wrong with their catalogue, but they always seem to make it sound fresh and vital. FULL DAYS FESTIVAL REVIEW - ©2015 Paul Quinton

UFO - Steelhouse Festival Review

Saturday headline act UFO also take a step back to the early eighties opening tonight with the classic `We Belong To The Night. Now whatever your personal opinion may be regarding this band, there`s no doubting the legendary status within rock music that they should be afforded. ‘Lights Out’, ‘Only You Can Rock Me’ are true classic stompers, and who would believe we are here taking in a live performance from one of the all time greatest rock bands right here on a mountain so so close to home, it’s actually all quite beautiful. Oh yeah what a band, Phil Mogg, god bless him, still has “it” in abundance and ‘Love To Love’ as always features Paul Raymond on keyboards (and guitar) who is still exuding that cool persona, Andy Parker meanwhile pounds away behind the kit and of course Vinnie Moore another in the lineage of classic axemen that have graced this wondrous group is displaying some rifftastic moments of six string brilliance. Let`s also not forget bassist Rob De Luca either who rounds off this super tight musical outfit. Add in a stunning headline sound oh and that unmistakable logo up there on the backdrop, and a set closing with ‘Rock Bottom’, ‘Doctor Doctor’ and ‘Shoot Shoot’ - its boom, boom, boom! Timeless musical classics one and all.

What more can you say? That’s me over and out from day one of Steelhouse 2015. Now what surprises will tomorrow bring?

However, there is no under estimating headliners UFO (10/10), majestic and graceful as the veterans they are.  Vinnie Moore writhes his way up and down the ramp as well as his fretboard, while the dapper Phil Mogg pours his heart and soul into a set filled with classics and peppered with new tracks from their brilliant ‘A Conspiracy Of Stars’ album, filling the field with huge singalongs and charging the night air with tingling electricity, leaving all present content with the knowledge that they have seen masters of their craft at work.

HARLEY DAYS FESTIVAL review and photos

UFO - Vinnie Moore - Phil Mogg - Andy Parker - Rob De Luca - Paul Raymond


TRANSLATED FROM GERMAN TO ENGLISH

...New Metal Media has driven all the way to the Harley Days Festival, because there one of the most famous hard rock bands ever will be on stage - UFO. Doctor Doctor Please .... it was under this slogan on a slightly rainy evening at the Harley Days on the aforementioned wholesale market.

To match the engine rattling sounds of Harleys played the Old rockers UFO at large. The siege in front of the stage was the occasion correspond large combines were old and young rocker side by side to the heroes of the 70s and 80s to live. At this point I would like to take the old rockers back because what bring UFO on stage, so lets some young band tremble with awe. Already with the second song of the evening, the British have the audience firmly in hand, the song is the way from their new album.

Hit after hit flies the enthusiastic crowd around the ears and almost would have the impression that the men of UFO had not aged a single day, because they not only play with energy and joy, but also drown out even the passing Harleys. All in all it can be stated as a conclusion, UFO have far from exhausted their energy and so this concert makes in Hamburg simply want more.

Here is also the most beautiful concert evening to end and it drives me after the concert to the Merchendise booth where I treat myself with the purchase of their latest album. 2015 all rights reserved

LONDON Forum Concert Review

... This does, however, lead into the highlight of the set for me. ‘Cherry’ and ‘Love To Love’ are every bit what classic UFO is all about – epic, grandiose, heavy and dramatic, they are delivered to perfection - inspired choices indeed. And talking of inspired choices, how about ‘The Wild The Willing And The Innocent’ Side 2 , Track 1 - ‘Makin Moves’, a welcome and unexpected choice from the ‘Tonka’ Chapman era. From then on in, it’s the ones that no UFO gig would be complete without. ‘Rock Bottom’ is spot on with Vinnie Moore making a fine job of that most famous of Michael Schenker solos, with of course ‘Doctor Doctor’ and ‘Shoot Shoot’ providing some serious singing along for the encore.

This was one seriously good UFO gig. The atmosphere was great, and there was a real buzz about the place that UFO were delivering the goods that they may not always have done in recent years. Phil Mogg is his usual jovial self, and compared to a fair few of his contemporaries still retains that voice in extremely good nick. Andy Parker can still bash seven bells out of the kit, and Paul Raymond, from a distance at least, doesn’t look like he’s aged at all. And let’s not forget relatively new man Rob Da Luca who does a sterling job filling some pretty big shoes on bass.

As we head out into the night, the news channels are buzzing with news of the election that tonight took our minds away from, and pretty soon we’ll learn that we’ve got five more years of Cameron. Five more years of UFO would be greatly appreciated. - READ FULL REVIEW

VINNIE MOORE INTERVIEW

Interviewed by Mark Dean (Journalist/Writer/Contributor) Myglobalmind Webzine

One benefit that working for an International Website like Myglobalmind can bring is that doors are opened that other smaller media outlets cannot obtain. So it was when legendary British rock band UFO rolled into Belfast on their Conspiracy of Stars tour. We were fortunate enough to be granted the only after show interview that the band did in the city. I sat down with guitarist Vinnie Moore to discuss a variety of topics from music to cooking…

 

MGM”Okay then Vinnie as a young rock fan from growing up in America what was your first introduction to the music of UFO was the band big in America?

Vinnie “Yes they were pretty big in America had a few of their   records when I was a kid. The Lights Out record,”Obsession and “Force It” and I grew up on those records. “Strangers in the night” had a couple of friends and we were all into rock and guitar orientated stuff. That was one of the bands that we were definitely in to".

Mgm” How did you feel when you actually had the opportunity to go and actually join the band? 

Vinnie “It was kind of surreal when I was a kid in my bedroom playing along with the records and stuff I would never have imagined that there would have been a chance that I would  play be playing with them someday. When it happened it was kind of surreal for me”

Mgm”Looking back at your musical career what would you say what was your proudest moment

Wishing Noel Buckley a speedy recovery - posted on Mark Taylors FB page:

"Please join me in sending out positive vibes and get well messages to my buddy and partner in grime Noel Buckley .... ... Noel was returning home on Thursday night after the UFO gig and was attacked from behind by feral thugs ...Noel was knocked out unconscious ! Luckily police were there quickly and arrests were made. Fortunately his camera gear was still with him.. Noel spent the night in hospital and is now home with a badly bruised head and ego.. Noel is understandably a bit down in the dumps about it, so please cheer the ole bugger up ... Cheers all" - Mark.

You can leave messages for Noel on Marks FB page or e-mail me here , and I will pass on.

Noel is a renowed Rock Photographer and has taken numerous photo's for Magazines and the Music Industry. Visit his website.

We wish you a very speedy recovery Noel, from all of us on the Misty Green and Blue website and as part of the UFO family.

LAST NIGHT AT THE FORUM was absolutely amazing - There was so much 'Energy' and 'Spark' to UFO's performance,
truly the best I have seen the band play - EVER! Here is the performance of 'Love to Love' - quality is shot from
my phone, so apologies on sound (does improve slightly), but you will get the feel of the 'vibe' and just how much
Phil is enjoying his performance and interaction with the rest of the band.

Highlight songs - 'Run Boy Run', 'Burn Your House Down' and 'Messiah Of Love'.

5/5 REVIEW

Wonderful UFO rock the Princess Pavilion, Falmouth

WHAT can you say about a rock band that's been about for more than four decades and has had success after success, other than you would expect them to be very, very good?

UFO were more than that on Friday night – they absolutely oozed class and quality.

UFO / Reds’Cool – Belfast, Limelight 1, 22/04/2015

With PM’s illustrious (!) Ireland editor laid low with a dose of the lurgy, it was up to yours truly to venture first into the rare bright sunny evening and then into the darkened venue for what promises to be rip roaring gig – and my first encounter with the legendary UFO...

...UFO amble on to the stage in a very understated manner;  but, as the the appropriate ‘We Belong To The Night’ begins, they prove that their music doesn’t need any flamboyance, and quickly envelopes the whole place.  The sound problems continue as Phil Mogg’s vocal mix is way too low.  However, as they fire straight into the second song, ‘Fight Night’, the band’s experience is clear for all to see and hear.

Phil Mogg of UFO at Limelight, Belfast‘Run Boy Run’, the first song of their new album ‘A Conspiracy Of Stars’ is next and, when the mix allows us, when can hear that Mogg has not lost his voice, it is still as clear as it was 30 (and more) years ago. But, there is one question nearly everyone is asking:  wtf is wrong at the mixing desk?  Feedback and distortion plague their set.  Although the band is quite static on stage – well they are (mostly) in their 60s – the passion and the full power of their music resounds around the venue – and the crowd are loving it...

CONCERT REVIEW

LIVE REVIEW:
UFO just get better and better as they return once again to Belfast

UFO were amongst a very select few of bands, who, during the 'Troubles' that afflicted Northern Ireland, played in the city despite the world crumbling down around many of the citizens.

While the mainstream media focusses on the punk reaction to the Troubles, hard rock and metal acts were consistent visitors during those dark days. Phil Mogg and his band mates first played in Belfast in 1979, and have been consistent visitors ever since... READ FULL REVIEW AND VIEW PHOTOS ON THE TOUR PAGE
