CONCERT REVIEW

It was now up to U.F.O. to close down the events proceedings and by firing off to a great start with ‘Lights Out’ they seemed to be heading down the right path.

Guitarist Vinnie Moore now looks well and truly settled amongst the ranks of Mogg and Co, and carves a niche in the sound making songs his own and adding a touch. Finishing with ‘Doctor Doctor’ it is what you would expect from the band, and probably what the mature crowd would really want – a good weekend for the young and the old, the male and female audience, and an inspiring set up and festival lay out.

Definitely worth the re-visit next year.

O2 Sheffield - CONCERT REVIEW

...In to the venue around 7:45ish and missed the support. Found a spot towards the back near the mixing desk and could see everything very well. Took me a bit by surprise when the band came on. Faith Healer (you know, the old Alex Harvey classic) started coming through. My mate asked if UFO coming on. I say no, it’s Alex Harvey.

But on they did come and belted straight in to Lights Out. We’re off and at the races. These days at a UFO gig it’s two performances for the price of one with Phil’s inter-song random comedy routine. For example Andy Parker’s birthday (bit of a running theme), the BT advert, Miley Cirus, his wife, twerking and cooking and a few more besides. Very funny, very dry.

The music though……storming, first class. Tight show, Vinnie really ripped it up – world class. Phil’s voice is clean and powerful. Andy Parker, Paul Raymond and Rob De Luca keep it all together. Just as we all know they can and do so well. One can have no complaints. True professionals who still have it and most certainly still know how to do it.

Set list: Slightly refreshed. We had a very welcome Making Moves (off TWTWATI – a personal fave) and Pushed to the Limit off Walk on Water. Also along the way (probably not in running order) I Aint No Baby, Let it Roll, Wonderland, Fight Night, Burn Your House Down, Baby Blue, When Daylight Goes to Town, Only You Can Rock Me with an always fine Love to Love followed by an extended Rock Bottom to close out the main set...

CONCERT REVIEW: UFO - Springfield VA 

Sample review:

If UFO is playing anywhere near you-GO!  Considered by many to be one of the world’s most underrated hard rock bands, the legendary UFO delivered.  The band flawlessly performed old hits & new tracks to a fired up audience...

...These road warriors, having played Europe & South America already this year, have crossed the pond to promote their latest album, Seven Deadly. They played their classics that have rocked us for forty plus years and tracks from their new release.  The years have not slowed them down, their raw, high-energy sound remains untamed...

...The next two songs, Fright Night, Wonderland, proves that they are still producing relative rocking music. This album should appeal to old and new fans alike and only serve to perpetuate the incredible legacy they have built. They continued to rock with the classics, Baby Blue, Cherry, Let it Roll, before sharing two more tunes from Seven Deadly, Mojo Town, Burn Your House Down.

Vinnie and Rob ripped classics as if they were the ones who originally laid them down. Only You Can Rock Me and Love to Love never sounded better. Vinnie’s renditions were perfect, exuding the energy of the iconic guitarists who preceded him. Rob’s driving bass lines and stage presence is a perfect fit.  Andy, a founding member was as enthusiastic as ever, thrashing the kit like a teenager.  Paul, who’s been around since ’77, handling all the keyboard and rhythm roles...

Video Interview with Spike

where he recounts how the Quireboys were doing their last rehearsal before splitting up when Phil Mogg walks in with two bags of beer, having

secured the band a support slot with Guns and Roses at Hammersmith Odeon. The band had no equipment, so Phil arranged for all the UfO equipment

and UFO road crew to support the Quireboys that night - Spike tells it in more detail and way better than me, so visit the site and play the video

Concert review: Posthalle - Würzburg


 

Konzert: Rock-Veteranen von „UFO“ gastierten in der Posthalle

Rockiger Flug durch die Bandgeschichte

TRANSLATED FROM GERMAN:

UFO-Frontman Phil Mogg in Aktion

Sounds like a rock band, which now has under his belt already more than 40 years? In "UFO" this question of the opener "Lights out" in the Würzburg post hall is pretty easy to answer: Honestly, distinctive, edgy and catchy guitar riffs - with a concert in a relaxed club atmosphere.
Description: lick here to find out more!
These now carry back with three members of the original cast. The formative rough voice of Phil Mogg, Paul Raymond on guitar and keyboards, the unsung engine of the band, and Andy Parker, along with the tour bassist Rob de Luca form the rhythm rug whose driving drums. Diligent was de Luca on bass, not a pose from the mandatory program for rock Olympians from and provided along with the microphone stand acrobatics Mogg for the full-length stage choreography.

But no later than "Fight Night" from the latest CD, "Seven deadly" it was clear that the man is the new heart of the band left on the guitar. Vinnie Moore has given a new melodic and creative face of the band, the "UFO" is very good. A comparison with Michael Schenker power riffs from the early days is not really possible, because too different are the two guitarists. The hand-picked audience, which had abundant space for your own motor, it did not matter.

It went back in time through the band's history, accompanied by the virtuoso solos Moore. Phil Mogg proved to be good-humored frontman, was always small anecdotes from his life and the touring routine feed, put a beard competition between a fan and Raymond Gitarrenroady and spoke to another might be one of the inattentive seemed to him directly, so the re- knew what it was.
