UFO A Conspiracy Of Stars Tour 2015
Bensheim

YOUTUBE REVIEW

 


„UFO“ gibt sich im Musiktheater Rex die Ehre

Translated from German:

BENSHEIM - (hazy). The British hard rock legend "UFO" has landed in the former Bensheimer Güterhalle. With a cosmic timeline, the group left the audience in musical theater Rex in the late 70s. 46 years after its founding, served the British band of pure hard rock with pumping bass, powerful drums and melodic guitar solos.

The guests in the well-attended hall experienced a rich, powerful sound with occasional flare-ups of blues-rock sounds. Clear arrangements, catchy melodies and energy set the tone of the band, who had arrived mid-70s at the height of her career. At that time, the former "Scorpions" -Leadgitarrist Michael Schenker had provided for accents.

With vocalist Phil Mogg and drummer Andy Parker are still two founding members on stage. Also keyboardist Paul Raymond is one of the companions of the long band that has just presented with "A Conspiracy of stars" her 22nd studio album.

Guitarist Vinnie Moore and Rob de Luca on bass complement the formation that appears somehow indestructible after two interim resolutions and many line-up changes. The massive personnel reshuffles led to an inner restlessness that was not conducive to the musical output over many years. Purists deplore today the departure of Michael Schenker, who left the group at its peak due to health reasons.

Pleasant falls on the Bensheim concert that the voice of the 67-year-old singer has barely lost some volume and expression. Phil Mogg was in Rex vigorously swirl the microphone stand while he chatted between songs with the audience about his stage beers and demonstrated close to the English working class. In between there were clever lyrics and melodic games, as they are of UFO kennt.Neben massive pieces like "The Killing Kind" and "Devils in the detail" convinced the band also in the quieter climes such as the song "Precious Cargo".

LIVE CONCERT REVIEW - 4.4/5

TRANSLATION:

And again my experienced concert halls has gained an entry. The prospect of seeing UFO close to home, is always worth a visit. The vocational college in Schloss Neuhaus was me as a location previously completely unknown and will probably not go down in the annals as the hottest shed on earth.

The thing is just an assembly hall and the first notes of the evening sprayed me the charm, as would be played after the certificate issue still music. Ok, ok - quite so dramatic it was not natural and ultimately could UFO necessary even with eyes closed enjoy. The main reason for me is now my colleague at the six strings with blue terry towel.

Vinnie Moore is simply the amazing! Also on this evening his fingers bustled with the intensity of a newly hatched chicks at the same time accuracy of a Lucky Luke on the fingerboard. One knows that yes, that a guitarist sometimes in between gets applause at a successful solo. In "Rock Bottom" the audience was three times prepared to pay for the extraordinary skill separately.

Of course, one must not make the mistake and to reduce UFO on the guitar. For this, the band is simply still too good. Phil Mogg accompanied as pleasant emcee for the evening and despite its 67 Lenze his voice is still pleasantly fresh and distinctive (not quite as fresh as usual this evening perhaps, but still excellent). Paul Raymond and Andy Parker know exactly how the sound density has to listen and are perfectly complemented by Rob De Luca.


Vinnie Moore thereby yields the putty, the melodic shapes the band and at the same time can stand timeless. Whether Schenker era or modern times - it always fits and there is no break in harmony and style. The setlist (which is quasi already habitually completed by a final "Shoot Shoot") provides to a balanced mix of classics and new songs. "Burn Your House Down" has now become an integral part and which is missing a grenade like "To Hot To Handle", falls no serious consequence.




For this, the always brilliant "Lights Out" and "Doctor Doctor" as highlights and of course the already mentioned "Rock Bottom". Those ten minutes alone the price of admission worth. Vinnie brings everything purely what provides the musical garden of fruit - rock, metal, fusion, jazz, blues, classical and God knows everything. I still have goose bumps.

UFO might have found in the final version, while in a vitality that still the Frog abfackelt the curls. For years, the best recorded in spite of the distance USA (where Vinnie Moore resides) and Europe. Messrs sound as if they would even gamble every evening together - and that was in the early years with Vinnie is not like that. Let them remain with us in this form for a long time!

Well worth a visit for anyone with a penchant for honest, handmade music. Age does not matter. Skirt Rules!

Thanks again to Silke for driving and charming companion.
Oh, and in two weeks I'm EPITAPH again in vocational college. Again will be entertained young and old.

LIVE REPORT


UFO + REDS’COOL
live @ Legend, Milano
– domenica 1 novembre 2015 – 

Translated from Italian:

LIVE REPORT
It was 1974 when in record stores near home saw an album just came out on the cover stood out in the sky a beautiful flying saucer on the rooftops of a city. Associai that ship on time to a famous series of science fiction at the time was the most popular and followed assiduously for years, in which the aliens, using these space ships, carried out repeated raids on Earth, opposed victoriously (thankfully) by an international organization called SHADO. What most deceived my mind of "kid" was the name emblazoned on the cover, the same as the TV series UFO. "Phenomenon" was the first album with which I made the acquaintance of the English band and since then I have never ceased to follow them. I had to wait almost ten years to be able to then see it live for the first time in that of Rome in 1983 (with Billy Sheehan on bass). I never missed a step in their Italic land (quite rare for the truth) and here we are at the Legend of Milan for the only date in our country promotional tour last album "A Conspiracy Of Stars". The invasion has just begun!



The public, as expected, is made by people in stramaggioranza rather "elderly" and already numerous since opening despite the event was little noticed, this proof that the British band continues to exert its fascination even after all these year career. Indeed there was a large tam-tam media, so much so that no one knew that the evening's program also foresaw a support group. And on balance it was a very pleasant surprise!
The Reds'cool come from Mother Russia, they have released two albums (plus one in 2011 with the moniker oldschool) and a band of great quality. Proponents of an energetic hard rock, square, uncompromising, played with precision and intelligence, the Reds'cool with their songs have had easy game and conquered all present. The voice scratched Slava Spark, riffs robust of the two axes Sergey Fedotov and Ilya Smirnov, the solid rhythm section of Dmtry Pronin (bass) and Andrey Kruglov (drums), all contribute to a sound amalgamation of great impact, a fusion of notes simple but direct, like a blow that hits you and puts you knock-out.
A group that plays flawlessly without exceeding in the unnecessary and in any case they are not needed in a full-bodied sound like them. From the first song you understand what they are made, "Dangerous One" is the classic hard rock that makes you tap your feet and shake his head with his pulsating rhythm, as well as the subsequent "My Way" which unfortunately is partially wasted malfunction of wireless guitar Ilya, who apologizes for the inconvenience and will be readily supported by the applause of encouragement to all the public. But the nice combo Soviet rockers has not only ambitions of race, when they want to know how to give even more melodic imprint their pieces, as on "Strangers Eye" at times, with its harmonies, very reminiscent of the typical atmospheres Whitesnake in the most hair metal. Their performance is engaging and even though they know their songs can equally make us sing in chorus "Bad Story".
They close with "Feel You" and received at the end of their set lots of applause and numerous compliments from the entire audience, demonstrating that Reds'cool were greatly appreciated. Spasibo tovarishchey!

Setlist: "Dangerous One" - "My Way" - "Bite" - "Strangers Eyes" - "The Way I Am" - "Love Behind" - "Bad Story" - "Hey You" - "Feel You"

REDS'COOL lineup
Slava Spark - Vocal
Sergey Fedotov - Guitar
Ilya "Lu" Smirnov - Guitar
Dmitry "Dee" Pronin - Bass

--------------------



It is now preparing the stage for the arrival of the stars of the evening: UFO. The lights go out, the tension mounts ... a long intro with us during their arrival on the scene ... the moment tafto awaited finally arrived ... then "lights on Milan" and both initiates the show!
In general rejoicing it's off to this interplanetary travel with "We Belong To The Night", thus beginning a long journey well over 45 years through their music and that will draw their songs, fishing a bit 'from all their production between old and new album. What is striking is the very elegant interpretation that has yet Phil Mogg, his voice is a warm, unique, no other singer has the tone that he has in his ropes, which are suited well with that sound and that have always been one of the features of their success. It comes in a dark suit, complete with a jacket, which gives that air of refined gentleman and typically English.

Charisma, class, passion impossible not to be admired by his performance, because he does not miss anything and played 67 years can still teach you how to sing so many young (but not only them) singer in the music scene and who believe they are already of the reference points. From perfect host it leads us by the hand, along with the rest of the band, to visit those "points of light" that make their universe, the musical, with songs like "Lights Out," Only You Can Rock Me "," Cherry ", sung to 'unison by all of us, but it also presents excerpts from their latest work, such as "Run Boy Run" or "Messiah Of Love", then amaze one with the exciting "Love To Love".
UFOs, always, have their considerable technical knowledge, Vinnie Moore needs no introduction, a guitar virtuoso who enchants us with his acrobatics, stairs on stairs profusely executed with great skill and taste, as the magnificent "Rock Bottom" where you leave to go to a long and intense solo. Chapeau!

The granite drumming Andy Parker and overflowing down Rob De Luca (which obviously uses a Gibson Firebird as Pete Way - bassist of the band ed) give a sense of emphasis and more power to all their songs. And then there's the versatile Paul Raymond alternating time on keyboards, now on guitar and that creates the frame that enriches their sound image. In short, excellence has a name, UFO, a name that all together we scan repeatedly to get them back on stage and they will settle for giving us in a one of the best songs in the history of hard rock, "Doctor Doctor", who triggers enthusiasm among all of us, in a state of satisfaction and euphoria that are further exacerbated by "Shoot Shoot" that was not foreseen in the lineup, is the song with which to take their leave greeted by a genuine standing ovation from the entire audience . And while in the room echo the notes of "Strangers In The Night" by Frank Sinatra (a reference to their famous double live album is not purely coincidental), we move to return to Earth after witnessing an incredible encounter of the third type: UFOs are always "space".

Setlist: "We Belong To The Night" - "Fight Night" - "Run Boy Run" - "Lights Out" - "Messiah Of Love" - ​​"Venus" - "Only You Can Rock Me" - "Burn Your House Down" - "Cherry" - "Love To Love" - ​​"Makin 'Moves" - "Rock Bottom" - "Doctor Doctor" - "Shoot Shoot"

Translated from Italian:

November, extraordinarily rich in live shows, opens tonight with a concert of a historical formation of hard rock like UFOs, British band in which they have played in the past the likes of Michael Schenker and Pete Way and that is often cited as the main source of inspiration from a myriad of bands like Iron Maiden and Europe, just to name a few at random.

The band has always been led by the charismatic vocalist Phil Mogg (present in the starting line-up since the late 1970's debut album) is on tour to support his latest album "A Conspiracy Of Stars", released last February for the ' label SPV / Steamhammer (review here), and for the occasion was accompanied by promising Russian band of Reds'Cool.

The quintet of St. Petersburg does not take long to take hold on the public, thanks to a gritty hard rock but with a strong melodic and a good stage presence gained in recent years with tours of shoulder to bands like Black Star Riders and Vain. The onlookers, already in good number despite being only twenty and more on Sunday night, seem to appreciate the very musical style of the band and the atmosphere is not slow to warm up, thanks to catchy songs like "Stranger's Eyes" and "Bad Story ".

But people, who meanwhile has begun to crowd the Legend Club, is obviously here for the headliners and when UFOs come on stage to the tune of the sumptuous "We Belong To The Night" are immediately greeted by applause full of affection. Phil Mogg, elegant in a dark suit jacket / trousers, still holds the stage with an incredible class despite sixty springs, but it seems clear from the outset that the star of the evening will be the fireworks American guitarist Vinnie Moore, driving force of the band, whose line-up is completed by trusted members of Andy Parker (solid on drums the drums) and Paul Raymond (able to extricate easily between keyboards and guitar), as well as the precise US bass player Rob De Luca, already at work in the band of Sebastian Bach.

Between a song and another Phil Mogg is delighted to joke with the audience without ever leaving his glass of beer and so, by the admission of not being able to utter a single word of Italian and the revelation of wanting to go to find Giorgio Armani because his good suit has moths and serve him a new one to attend weddings and funerals, we arrive at the first moment of the evening when the band part in fourth with the wonderful "Lights Out", which is played so well that appear to come directly from the grooves by the masterpiece "Strangers In The Night", one of the finest live album in the history of rock music: the voice of Mogg not miss a beat and the long and wild solos Vinnie Moore has ovation.

A beautiful version of the exciting "Venus" (taken from "Walk On Water", the album that marked in 1995 the momentary return of prodigal son Michael Schenker) and the classic "Only You Can Rock Me" (from the choir sang own all) set the stage for what will represent on balance Zenit entire show: the magic that is given off from the execution of the solemn "Love To Love" is unique and leads again on shields good Vinnie, adept at juggling the verses in acoustic and solo parts in electric.

All'ingiustamente never too acclaimed "Makin 'Moves" follows the closing of September the famous "Rock Bottom", ideal carpet of sound that, in the long second part instrumental, allows to pull rightly breath in a Phil Mogg that begins to look a little 'tired, thus leaving room for popular virtuoso Vinnie (although, very personal account, this piece will always be the masterpiece of personal Schenker and never be able to appreciate it in full when played by others).

After the momentary output of the band from the stage, the five returned to close the show with two classics such as "Doctor Doctor" and "Shoot Shoot", capable, especially the first, unleashing the enthusiasm in all of us and to send us home happy, for once at a decent time.

This November in rock could not have started in a better way and to sum up the concert tonight just one word: class, strictly to be written with a capital. Large U.F.O.

U.F.O .:

Phil Mogg - voice

Vinnie Moore - lead guitar

Paul Raymond - keyboards, rhythm guitar

Andy Parker - drums

Rob De Luca - low

Live Report
UFO + Reds' Cool @ Legend Club,  Milano -
1 Novembre 2015

Translated from Italian:

Report by Fabrizio Bosso
Photos Moreno Short
UFOs have landed in Milan! No, not the classic news that ufologists would go crazy, or the title of a film by Steven Spielberg. We are talking about the immortal British band (with nearly 5 decades of honorable militancy) that has graced the evening of the many fans flocked to the Legend Club in Milan.

The curiosity to see the work of the band Phil Mogg (born in 1948) was much thanks to the last great work, "A Conspiracy Of Stars" released this year. What we see now is the average age of the audience quite high. For a band that released its first album in 1970 can not be that way, but in a rocker and the other is known some young sapling, a sign that the quality music knows no barriers.

Opening the evening are the Reds' Cool, Russian band (more specifically St. Petersburg) who was immediately struck by its dynamism. The blood given off by the hard rock five piece bestows power in spades, incredible rhythm section, two axes sharp and dirty and gritty voice of Slava Aleksanov delight us for about 40 minutes so egregious. Moreover, their attitude on stage full of bite and passion allows us to enjoy the best parts of their discography as "Bad Story" and "Stranger Eyes". Really good band.

In just a few minutes for a quick change stage and finally it served the main dish of the evening. UFOs burst with "We Belong To The Night" and now are divided into two things. The first is that the voice of Phil Mogg has not lost the verve of the past years (although towards the end of the concert has experienced a small decline), the second is that the weather was not so kind to her physical appearance. In addition it must be said that the good Phil maybe had a few drinks too much in the body, but this (apart from a few words sbiascicata) did not affect his performance. Indeed sometimes its typical English humor was fun especially when particolrmente said he bought a dress from Armani saying: "The classic dress that is worn at weddings or funerals." As for the purely musical side their live was perfect with a Vinnie Moore several times master of the scene (especially in "Rock Bottom" with its amazing only) and with the rest of the group always on the shields (especially Paul Raymond It brilliantly split between keyboards and guitar). With a discography so immense it is hard to please everyone, but tonight UFOs have definitely made happy the public come thanks to songs like "Light Out", "Only You Can Rock Me" and the very famous "Doctor Doctor" and "Shoot Shoot" ( placed in the closing show). Not bad vesioni "Run Boy Run" and "Messiah Of Love" taken from their latest CD, but if we have to choose pieces that have most impressed were undoubtedly "Cherry", "Venus" and "Makin 'Moves'.

When we're having fun time flies and after an hour and a half of healthy and honest hard rock we are forced to say goodbye to one of the most influential bands in history. At this point we can do is to go home with the confidence that UFOs exist and are in good health!

Set List:
1. We Belong To The Night
2. Fight Night
3. Run Boy Run
4. Lights Out
5. Messiah Of Love

MILAN - CONCERT REVIEW

Translated from Italian

We knew early on that November would have been very intense in terms of metal concerts in Italy; a great way to start this month was participate in the only Italian date for 2015 UFO. Let's face it, this live was not advertised much around, and the choice of the Legend, local rather small Milan, who had already suffered a real assault on the public on the occasion of the passing of Glenn Hughes, seemed risky. Contrary to expectations, the turnout is good right away and adjust volume is well balanced, so as not to miss anything of what will happen during the evening.

It starts early, as usual, with the Red's Cool, quintet coming, quite strange to say, Russia (St. Petersburg specifically), offering a hard rock that does not claim to innovate but only to entertain the right way. The band gets along very well on stage, alternating sympathy and professionalism and immediately attracting attention with a repertoire consisting only of new songs traits in a balanced way by the two full length from their published and titled "Press Hard" and "Bad Story ". A good start to the evening, in fact.

The setlist of UFOs follows a fairly standard program, with most of the songs performed that are part of the period, and it is logical to imagine, with Vinnie Moore on guitar. Of course, there classics like the romantic "Love To Love" or "Cherry", but in front of these old favorites, new songs, such as those drawn from the recent "A Conspiracy Of Stars", does not disfigure at all.

The second part of the concert is more focused on the historic tracks of the band and puts more emphasis on the style and class of this great hard rock band, all aspects which over the years have consolidated the results and make a show of Milan solid and impeccable.

Phil Mogg, in a dark suit with suspenders view, is a professional microphone, although never loses an eye polish old drunk and eaten in his speeches between songs and the other is not the slightest trace of meaning logical.

Vinnie Moore is usually the star performer of the six strings, use the most of all the spaces that are granted and has the air of someone who is having a ball from the first note to the last, splitting with great skill and as always between acoustic guitar and electricity.

And as before between his left-handed guitar and keyboards, Paul Raymond is one of those musicians that time seems to be spent, as well as Andy Parker, who despite being a bit 'hidden due to the small size of the stage, hammering incessantly dishes and skins with enthusiasm and precision. With a good choice of songs performed live and such precision between voice and instruments, all enriched by a rich interaction with the first file, the arrival of the end, of course entrusted to the famous "Doctor Doctor" and "Shoot Shoot" It comes too soon.

UFO – Milano, Legend Club 1 nov 2015 - TTTT

Boy, late seventies. I am continuing to explore the Rock. Hello 2001 I read about UFOs. These are the years in which, at least in that magazine, when we talk about a band devoted to hard rock, are always mentioned the LZ. The following Saturday, as almost every Saturday, to Peecker Sound, the largest record store in the province. Letter U, UFO, I pick up the first LP that catches my attention: the cover (by Hipgnosis) two women kissing. Hard Rock and lesbian fantasies, that's better for a teenager? In fact on the cover there is a heterosexual couple, even made a little 'transparent and therefore less "offensive" ... is an American edition and you know that in America for' these things are bigots.
Spending Saturday evening at home in front of the stereo, UFOs ensnare me immediately: guitar sublime, beautiful songs of hard rock, great singer, drummer I is immediately sympathetic. The entire side of A and the first piece of the B-side are a memorable sequence of great hard rock English, one for which I go crazy. Become a fan and I will be lonely, none of my friends know or particularly like UFOs, only my sister seems to fall in love instantly Guitar SCHENKER.
Man (blues) middle-aged today. No time to go back to San Siro and back to Milan, where destination Legend Club will play tonight UFOs, or what's left. At the wheel of the groupies, the stereo Tales From Topographic Oceans before and SGT PEPPER then. I remember my history with the group after FORCE IT, STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT, just came out, I see touch the American Top 40, and LIGHTS OUT, the triumph of the group that borders the US Top 20. I procure everything else. SCHENKER but left the band enters PAUL CHAPMAN, but I remain displaced MAKING CONTACT with the 1983 album that I love very much, back in Careggi. The entrance of NEIL CARTER I tasted a lot. Shortly after the dissolution and rebirth with a new band all (or almost), with a young guitar hero and an air by MTV. Misdemeanor fails, however, barely touches the Top 100 in the US and remains distant from the Top 40 English. I am thrilled, not UFOs ones, agree groped a more commercial approach - after all the years are those - and try to take the shot, but distorting the band often means then go adrift. The disc is not terrible discrete pieces of heavy melodic rock that fades nell'AOR, but the effects of the battery eighties and the sound of the guitar are bad. Let UFOs and step beyond. I follow them from afar ... back in the nineties with continuous changes of formation, SCHENKER back and then goes away again, until you get to the stability of recent years, with VINNIE PAUL RAYMOND Moore on guitar and keyboards and rhythm guitar to support PHIL MOGG and ANDY PARKER.
I do not expect much, but I feel a shiver: see PHIL and ANDY (but PAUL RAYMOND) know it will be a thrill.

On the A1, Piacenza after five kilometers north of queue because of an accident. The club opens at 20, the concert is scheduled for 21. We arrive at 21.05. Out there, parked, the tour bus. No time to get that "Hey Tim Tirelli, hello, are Massimo from Genoa, I follow your blog ... I also discovered the BAD COMPANY thanks to you." MICK RALPHS please take note, for Christmas you may also send me a present!

I am surprised, the CLUB LEGEND is a small club, about the same as the OFF Modena, I was expecting something like the Zona Roveri Bologna ... no harm is meant but I thought that UFOs, and I stress the UFOs, they played in front of a bigger audience. Massimo tells me that is rumored to have sold 270 tickets.

At 2115 enters the group. ANDY PARKER is buried behind the amplifiers and hidden from the column on the side of the stage, the other on the front line ... here comes PHIL MOGG ... it seems to me an old man a bit 'fragile tournament pinnacle of Arci. First piece: WE BELONG TO THE NIGHT by MECHANIX. Looking a bit 'better the situation seems to me to be in the film STILL CRAZY, we could easily be in North Holland ...

In short I am clear that I must retrace my steps even some concerts of historical band now in later years and with several substitutes in place of the original members are not really bad. The group is solid, hard rock proposed effective. Vinnie Moore, American guitarist came to prominence with questionable miovimento of guitar hero wanted from Shrapnel Record and Mike Varney, it blends better than expected with the mood of the group. Of course, every now and drops the misrepresented prolonged and fast to guitar wanker, but placed in such a context his guitar playing all the time and avoid overflow, filtered by songs with a construct noteworthy, makes sense.

The first is the classic LIGHTS OUT ... exchange a glance with groupies while ACHILLES LAST STAND de noatri spread throughout his charge. Too bad Phil sings "lights out lights out Milan".

Between a piece and another Phil tells anecdotes and tries to entertain the audience, but his English is so mumbled that I understand very little. The London accent is strong, sound just like the DARK LORD, that spoken Cockney who turns JIMMY PAGE JIMMY POIGE short. Phil seems to be more clear.

The most recent pieces seem better than expected, it is obvious that I am comfortable with the Hard Rock English. I'm sorry not to see ANDY PARKER from my position, it's a character that I always loved. Drummer concrete, without so many blowjobs, heavy and dynamic at the right point. PAUL RAYMOND is often in front of everyone, it makes me laugh with the bonnets on his head. It 's always been a little' glamor from the point of view of the visual and makeup. At the bottom there ROB DE LUCA, an American musician with a respectable curriculum. Okay that replaces PETE WAY, which is anything but a gifted bassist, but a bit 'of that passion that we put PETE is essential.


ONLY YOU CAN ROCK ME CHERRY me and they taste just as much. It follows LOVE TO LOVE, the favorite piece from groupies ...

MOGG alla voce se la cava meglio del previsto, è chiaro che non ne ha più tanta, ha 68 anni, ma la adopera in maniera intelligente, cantare il Rock duro alla sua età non è un lavoro per tutti.

MAKING MOVES da THE WILD THE WINNING AND THE INNOCENT del 1981 è il preludio a ROCK BOTTOM, l’ultimo pezzo. Il pubblico è caldo e partecipe.

Two minutes in the dressing room and away with DOCTOR DOCTOR and my beloved SHOOT SHOOT.

An hour and a half, perfect. Stop that we still want to Rock unidentified flying.

I am happy. I wander to the local ...



ANDY & TIM – UFO – Milano, Legend Club,1-11-2015 - photo Saura T

In the marquee outside used to do merchandising look at T-shirts. The bassist is there that autograph tickets and that makes photos with the patrons, it seems that he feels protagonist. Suddenly emerges ANDY PARKER. I'm not an autograph hunter, get me to sign the disks is not a priority, but a photo with ANDY, my ANDY, I take it gladly.

 

But here I am hugging ANDY PARKER, who walk around the little boy who is still in me.

Do a look at the marquee, ANDY is there signing LP and talking with everyone. What a man!

We leave the room, East ring road, the A1. The first roadside restaurants we stopped to eat something. Few aclienti, eat a sandwich and Stenco groupie last remaining donut. I drive, the groupie drowsy. Through the black ocean of the night, I follow the current, the father of the four winds swells my sails, the North Star guides my route, my rhythms adapt myself to the breath of the universe, I think back to my kid, all my dreams , to my asperazioni, a disc that on a Saturday in many, many years ago I held in my arms ... Oh, all my boyish dreams

Text: antonio-lopez


One of the greatest rock bands of all time. If the world would be just the UFO should be filling stadiums as with AC/DC for instance. Some say I'm stoned but these guys huge hoard songs to a truck stop. Even in recent times continue taking more enjoyable drives. I would say much better than average that we get to the ears. And that they are longer than forty-five years in business and we seem to have nothing to show and you've said it all. With Phil Mogg always commanding the ship. You hear him sing and it seems impossible to follow in top form after the life of excess that has stuck. Gone are the days of wine and roses "Strangers In The Night" back in 1979. But here they are on tour featuring his latest album "A Conspiracy of Stars". Disc with tracks is winning and what at first seems a mere formality you come across issues that are worthwhile and which are left to listen without problems and without you gnash their teeth.

The concert hall is in Stage Santander and openers have Reds'Cool the Russian side. Energetic group of hard-rock and with a melodic touch that refer you to the eighties where Whitesnake were masters of the roost. They put forward and very receptive people are swayed by what the Russians offered on stage. With singer not stop moving and good voice, two effective guitars and a powerful rhythm section made us have a good time.

At the end is a pretty decent entry for a medium capacity venue such as Santander Stage. With some delay with respect to expectations shown UFO. The band is the same as the previous tour I had seen them. Well, already it has a consolidated years. So we have the classic and Andy Parker on drums, superb throughout the concert with a perfect punch and leads the group in a twinkling. Keyboardist and rhythm guitarist Paul Raymond. Huge in always giving the right atmosphere to those songs that require their presence and fulfilling to perfection in the work on the guitar keyboard. And the greatest. The fucking master on stage. What Phil Mogg has no name. His dedication and poise gets you into the pot at the first change. You hear him sing with that feeling that makes you already know that everything will be smooth sailing. Also a guy who likes hesitation and communicate with both the musicians and with people. Especially with Vinnie Moore constantly interacts with both talking as if Vinnie depliega its superb solos. The moment it's up to Phil and Vinnie this all sweaty not wasted. Go Phil puts face but always good vibes. And putting in Vinne armpit. Then the current to said Vinnie Moore and the difficult ballot to forget other guitarists who had the band. The shadow of Michael Schenker.siempre will always be there but Vinnie although it would continue looking very closely has managed to adapt to the group and displayed enormous at all times and has managed to keep intact the spirit of the classic songs and put their bit but giving a personal touch without departing from the pot. Something that at first does not seem to succeed. And finally the youngest of all. Robb bassist Luca. Comparisons are odious and replace a charismatic bassist Pete Way is no small feat. But the guy has savvy and moves like a fish in water on the tables and not merely be to be and always stepping forward encouraging people.

Beginning with "We Belong to the Night". At first the sound is a bit low and his voice barely heard. Matter of adjusting and something else. A good old theme to start that if only one of those that all control is trademark and shoots like a charm. Continue with the powerful "Fight Night" and "Run Boy Run". Current topics that fit perfectly into the UFO universe and to be enjoyed without problems. With the band already greased falls "Lights Out" that people receive in style. It goes in crescendo and the band pride shown, they are seen enjoying and that is transmitted to staff. Time for a new "Rollin Rollin" which for me is one of the best of his latest album. Falls a stunning rendition of "Venus". Vinnie Moore taps into enormous. A theme to enjoy with the deployment of this band on stage. All they are providing what the proud subject. But you have to make people dance so what better way than with "Only You Can Rock Me". No one can resist this song every god chanting the refrain like there was no tomorrow. Presses down with "Burn Your House Down" but how to sing Phil Mogg. With these movements squeezing the hand that looks like a flamenco singer. All delivery and classy. You hear the bass lines so characteristic and longer recognize "Cherry". Another demonstration of this band that does little to any group that is put forward. Marking the tempos to perfection and again and I know I repeat myself but Phil Mogg comes out. For the next lunge us and how. A "Love to Love" that puts the goosebumps more painted. Pride contribution of Vinnie Moore and Paul Raymond raise the issue to another dimension. In the glory is little. For the stretch run down "Messiah of Love" and a tough "Makin 'Moves" to put the icing on the cake with "Rock Bottom" putting itself outside the calmer the planet. With the party to look Vinnie and leverages.

In the encore we just killed. Beginning with "Doctor Doctor" all God enjoys chanting the refrain, and putting chock the room. Just big and sating our expectations "Shoot Shoot" is a non-stop and lets your body smoothly. It is the end point. Vacilón goodbye and plan the "Strangers In The Night" sounds of Frank Sinatra. I the next day is the first thing I do upon arrival at gigs. Wear helmets and that record sound.

UFO + RED SKULL - Capitol Room (Santiago de Compostela) - 11/06/2015
Cool Red's were in charge of opening a hard rock concert with an energetic and melodic touch. This was one of the few occasions when the coincidence of the opening act and the main group have a similar style is given. This band founded in 2009 and with several albums on the market, provided us with a powerful sound and a good attitude and stage presence that left the audience satisfied with his performance.



UFO on the scene, with the basis of the original Andy Parker (great classic and sober drums) and Phil Mogg small, quirky guy with a voice and full of feeling.



The accompanying keyboardist and guitarist Raymond Parker and fellow guitarist Vinnie Moore, although clearly not Michael Schenker, is probably the best guitarist for UFO, carrying more than ten years in the band and showing perfect fit in the same.

Completing the training we Robb bassist Luca, one of those "recent" additions luxury.

Returning to the concert itself, we can say that are musically almost perfect and a great repertoire that makes you enjoy the first second to the last. Significantly UFO capacity to fill a living medium capacity as the Sala Capitol.

Its repertoire inevitably focuses on his immortal classic seventies, these timeless songs that will always be on the list of essential hard rock, adding "Run Boy Run" and "Messiah of Love," two topics in his latest album "A Conspiracy of Stars ".



Towards the end we offer a magnificent spectacle, a "Rock Bottom" with a super addictive riff that is living the rock and roll history, although a longer version are marked with a guitar solo from Vinnie seconded by the band and that no evil came to Phil Mogg to rest a moment offstage.

We reached the highest point of the concert, when the encore derby hand "Doctor Doctor", great theme of Schenker. Finally, "Shoot Shoot" where as Phil Mogg's voice justito charisma and charm.



In short, UFO is likely to be one of the best classic rock that can be seen live and in addition to good musicians, give the feeling of being sympathetic types, which reveal at the time of his retirement when we do
a nod to the Sinatra song "Strangers in the Night" in the name coinciding with one of his records. What we transmit along its entire performance is greatly enjoying what they do.

Translated from Spanish


a very interesting evening is presented Friday in Santiago de Compostela. We had an appointment with a Hard Rock band legedaria: UFO.
Russians opened Reds'Cool, hard rock of St. Petersburg with his 3rd album under his arm, Hard Press (2015), encouraged the audience was slowly coming to the sala.



Do not do wrong, are early, eager and have played with many of the great bands of the genre in recent years, having enough tables for youth to squander. To see how your future career he developed it, but you can leave good times.


More than 40 years on stage and UFO still there, true that Phil Mogg and Andy Parker are the only original members left, but they are very well supported by Vinnie Moore on guitar and Paul Raymond on keyboards and rhythm. He began the show !!


We belong to the night opened fire, classic piece Mechanix (1982), raising the public who sang with the band throughout it. The British are in a good shape certainly with Mr. Mogg who exudes charisma from the distant 70s.


Touch shelling the latest albums, for which interpret the Seven Deadly Night Flight (2012) and the first item on the last album Run Boy Run, followed by clasicazo Lights Out (Lights Out, 1977), also very chanted. The band on stage and enjoy those present would spend a great time watching this legend of rock music.



Rollin Rollin A Conspiracy of Stars (2015) is the next to be played by checking your most recent work sounds great, they feel very comfortable playing new and very communicative with people issues.
They keep up the review of his discography with Venus (Walk on Water, 1995) and other galletazo Only You Can Rock Me (Obsession, 1978). The great Vinnie Moore gets away with his mastery at 6 strings !!! ... yeeah !!!
Burn Your Head Down the Seven Deadly (2012) and Cherry disk Obsession (1978) give continuity to this evening of Hard Rock, which leaves us with a good taste in boca.



Love to love, ballad Lights Out (1977), begins the final fireworks that, bringing Messiah of Love
his latest album, gives us a classic triplet to finish the night: Making Moves, Rock Botton and Doctor Doctor ... say,
three essential in the history of Hard Rock always great songs.


UFO Thanks for tonight, and many more !! Rock And Roll!!

Crónica de UFO + REDS’COOL en Madrid, en la Sala But. Noviembre 2015

Translated from Spanish:

But a room, if not full, if good and acceptable competition, we have a night of hard rock, those times the opening act has a lot to do with the main artist, sound may not nailed, but in style .

Reds'Cool, coming from Russia, total strangers to me, that I have two or three albums sound as you can ask a hard rock band, powerful sound, very affordable choruses, good attitude and presence on stage. Their singer, good voice, and besides those broken like so much in the genre, has attitude and good work on stage, and in general, together, and in my opinion, this band, even coming from Russia, it sounds quite North American rock. They played about 45 minutes, and in addition to all the comments, saying that had a more than good sound, and left the audience very happy with his performance.

With this touching in rooms that open to clubs then, become quite a few times early season sessions and UFO came out on stage to 21:10, to offer something more than an hour and a half wonderful classic, elegant rock and tastefully . Whenever he leaves the issue regarding the old guard bands, absences leap forward, and perhaps reason may carry, but that is another debate. The fact that current UFO, Phil Mogg, Andy Parker, Paul Raymond, Vinnie Moore and Rob de Luca work as a team, good job, great sound quality in their performances, and all somehow captained by Vinnie Moore should take the reins as Phil Mogg might not find in his best form. Which does not prevent him take care of you throughout the concert, but almost from the first issue gives signs of fatigue, and aged appearance, and the absence of a tooth makes you expect the worst, gives the corn throughout the show, and that voice, that voice still retains something treasured in the past without much fuss or pose, Mogg gets round and give nostalgic sense, elegance, the whole band, which already is high note. And that need your moments of rest where semi crouched with his hands and legs recovered breath, but hey, that it has now doing a lot of touring, and still in the gap and level.

Combined with solvency new themes, some from different eras, going without stopping excess in any of them, giving space to topics stage Vinnie Moore, however, is guitarist for quite some time now, and my opinion performs its function more than amply. And Vinnie who gives more face both new songs and classics, much is lavished on their own and samples of good work with his guitar, perfectly wrapped by the band, but never take the initiative to give some of them during the concert, met with note function. And it is a pleasure to see concerts of classic bands, apart from the quality, professionalism dragging, make each minute show is memorable, and UFO get every issue, be it the stage of the band, sound with a logical line with the overall sound of the show, doing just as interesting any stage of the concert, but of course, we are human, and on issues where the band icon turns respectable, and the atmosphere created between band and audience, improvement in itself a wonderful concert. Special mention to "Love To Love" emotional, almost ten minutes, where you still can ruffle the hair, great. And near the end, "Rock Bottom", with guitar solo included lengthening the topic for quite some time, but which never Vinnie left alone as is typical among some guitars, the band perfectly abetting the execution of the single, which incidentally , it will not come badly Mogg to "rest" a moment offstage. In short, great concert by the British, not only for nostalgic of the band, any fan of rock can enjoy perfectly with the work of UFO live, and remain so for many years.

UFO + REDS'COOL

MADRID - November 7

SALA CATS

After feeling out of place in a concert in which you roll over 20 years most of the room, not bad offset to one where most of the audience belongs to a generation before yours. And we are talking about UFO, a band that has more than four decades on stage and that was sound track of a large number of rockers.

REDS COOL

Before the British sit chair, it was turn to the Russians Reds made good use of scarce Cool 40 minutes, trying to convince a rather cold and skeptical public.

redscool

It was not a bad performance but did not show anything special, did their job well, highlighting a good voice and some resultón another topic, but usually passed rather unnoticed.

UFO

It is amazing how the years pass; the first impression one gets to go onstage to UFO is clearly seen that they are older, of course, we are talking to Phil Mogg has 67, Paul Raymond 69, Andy Parker 63 and Vinnie Moore, though younger, already 51 ... afortunamdamente, when touching those years translate into experience and know-how, and the reality is that sounded like clockwork.

UFO1

The audience, mostly exceeding 40 years, enjoyed a protagonizdo beginning with "We Belong to the Night", "Fight Night", "Run Boy Run" and "Lights Out", all characterized by a good sound and sober and Band poise. Gone are the days of poses and fuss; Mogg's voice bastente resists well over the years, is not as powerful as decades, but is able to sing with solvency throughout the concert, strength and intensity was not impaired at any time. Moore is a six-string ax, and a concert put on his tall, his feeling when attacking the guitar is enviable certainly did enjoy the public. For his part, Raymond background remained more discreet, like Parker, although the latter made his mark behind the drums.

UFO5

"Rollin Rollin", "Venus", "Only you can rock me", "Burn your house down" and "Cherry" jurisdiction the next sound, as mentioned, with a neat and balanced sound that was constant throughout the show. The minutes passed, the songs were changing, it was time to "Love Love" and "Messiah of love" and everything ended at the end waited for the characteristic great songs, and so a very extensive "Makin 'Moves" and "Rock Bottom" very applauded and welcomed, they put the first point and followed the performance of the night.

ufo4

Were the encore with "Doctor Doctor" I felt like a Pavlov's dog, by force of habit the next thing I hope is that Iron Maiden appears, but not in this case was the full stop with "Shoot Shoot".

ufo3

Evidently the years pass for everyone, but UFO take him with extraordinary dignity.

Translated from Spanish

Last Saturday for a server beginning a frantic carousel concerts Madrid monopolize the attention of rocker staff during the month of November. And nothing better to do that than with a classic and absolute references of hard rock who responded amply aroused excitement among the audience that filled the capital largely But the central room he visited for the first time and I quite liked both its interior layout and because of its location and sound, only the usual buts, the prices of drinks and staff not too prepared for such events.


Anyway, we entered the premises and with the opening act, the REDS 'COOL, Russians having spent much of his performance because they started earlier than expected and we enjoyed just four or five issues.
A few issues that I discovered them because he could barely see two videos one one day before, and we sounded great in a wave of classic hard rock with a lot of melody, catchy choruses and good guitars that at times I reminiscent of bands like Great White Saxon or more "American". In view of the reaction of the audience rewarding the quintet with a standing ovation I think they've earned a few more fans in its Madrid.



Continuing to advance on the schedule announced, they took the stage at 21:10 h. British UFO, one of those essential to understand the history of hard rock bands and that despite having gone dark and sparsely attractive periods, leaves its unmistakable stamp. Always with the charismatic Phil Mogg forward in a magnificent voice state, probably the best I remind you of all the shows I've seen, well accompanied by the recovery and time to the cause Paul Raymond bending with rhythm guitar and keyboards bringing ago its indispensable experience sound of the group, as veteran Andy Parker sounded really well since its set drums.


What has made me more strange was not seeing Pete Way on bass, a guy who despite their addiction problems has always seemed to me the greatest, though in all honesty it may be better to have taken a step to aside and has left his post to Rob De Luca also did very well, also supporting the chorus with taste and discretion.

And Vinny Moore what? Well, at this point no one will discover the immense quality that holds in his fingers when playing the guitar, more than proven its ability to adapt to such a large and established as a band UFO, but do not know why in this time put more missing that dirtier and dragged the Flying V Schenker, in fact well into the show sound never rang me too "clean" to understand, and that the ax US not stop interacting with sympathy and good vibes with the audience, especially in some emblematic songs of the group.

We could enjoy a great performance from nearly two hours starting with a brilliant "We Belong To The Night", a subject not well known in the discography of the group belonging to the LP "Mechanix", but its catchy tune was suitable to open fire. They entered more sinuous land with "Fight Night" pure essence UFO with voice whispering Mogg, moving to higher tones with the energetic "Run Boy Run" one of the two that fell from his latest release "A Conspiracy Of Stars" which it was also very well received.

further Increased temperature with the wonderful "Lights Out," one of the great classics of the group in what has feeling and vocal attitude was splendid, but it was in the ones I squeaked guitar sound Moore, especially the only significantly changed from the original. They continued the job with the envelope "Rollin Rollin", before returning to accelerate with the fantastic "Venus" that began with Vinnie ripping noise before ringing, this time, very convincing and effective with power, as in the huge "Only You Can Rock Me" represented one of the summits of the night time.



He lowered a little the intensity level with the intriguing "Burn Your House Down" and the hypnotic "Cherry", returning to take us to the top with an immense performance of "Love To Love" Webbed spontaneously by the respectable following the huge melody Mogg vocal and acoustic and electrical changes that fit precise with Raymond keyboards. More rhythm and guitar playing with the rotunda and recent "Mesiah Of Love" sounded very well, and with the move "Makin 'Moves", which served as a prelude to that great work of art that is "Rock Bottom" always absolutely brilliant from the first chord stretched too with only Moore also, as he did with "Lights Out", he changed too to my taste.

Minimum break and encore with the song "Doctor Doctor" that got us all singing and bouncing little more Needless to say, before finally parting with another spectacular "Shot Shot" in which shone the vocals and Raymond De Luca supporting Mogg something that nevertheless held perfectly the kind leaving a huge impression. Great for a big performance by a group of the largest closure.

Translated from Spanish

Write a chronicle of a legendary band concert as UFO is not easy, especially when carrying releasing albums since and adding 69 new generations of followers to their ranks, and one may wonder why ?, Then the answer is simple, We are talking about a group that has billed 22 albums, with a long career and a lot of years touring, but above all, a group that could be retired or, even more, providing a painful version of what once were ... but no, this is not the case, and contrary to my expectations, the British are in an enviable state of form, despite his years on the road, and are still able to offer high quality direct.

But before I tell you more of the presentation of UFO in But I would stop in the Russian Red's Cool, a group formed in 2009 by Sergey Fedotov and that initially burst onto the Russian scene under the name OldSchool with which they released their first album Attraction, but this time accompanied the British UFO under the name of Red's Cool and presenting his latest album Bad Story.
 
The Russians did not offer anything new, however, its Hard Rock has a powerful sound, very affordable choruses and good attitude and stage presence, which guarantees a good show, it was exactly what they offered in But Sala I Saturday in the evening, a powerful direct and catchy choruses full of good vibes.

Russian quintet had about 45 minutes to convince the audience and apparently seen, I think they got, at least, entertain a room, although it was not full, if consisted of good turnout.
 
It was the turn of veteran British band UFO, who came out on stage at 21:10 to offer something more than an hour and half concert. Musically the group consisting of Phil Mogg, Andy Parker, Paul Raymond, Vinnie Moore and Rob de Luca, works perfectly, with a sound quality and a high level of implementation of each of the themes of the set; and on the physical side, it is obvious that they are no longer running marathons, and we are talking of a Phil Mogg that already in 67 years, or Vinnie Moore, despite being the youngest, already has 51 years old. However, this was not an impediment and the British offered an excellent show from the first minute with songs like We Belong to the Night "," Fight Night "," Run Boy Run "and" Lights Out "among others.
 

Phil Mogg remained at a high level throughout the presentation, and although no longer has the power for decades, in no time I was uncomfortable or just felt he was losing control of a topic, on the contrary, he was solid and he offered an excellent level attendees.
 
But undoubtedly the star of the night was Vinnie Moore, who was able to captivate the audience with his charisma and excellent execution on guitar, leaving in the background to Paul Raymond, who at all times meet its He committed but could not overshadow the charismatic Moore.
 
And as the night wore were heard the songs "Rollin Rollin", "Venus", "Only you can rock me", "Burn your house down" and "Cherry" However, the British quintet artillery was kept End heavy with songs like "Makin 'Moves" and "Rock Bottom" of course the most anticipated by the audience, and then close with the encores "Doctor Doctor" and "Shoot Shoot".
 
In conclusion, the British UFO, surprised with their good work and left more than satisfied those who approached the Sala But Saturday night November 7, offering a decent live rock legends.

Live feelings - UFO in Madrid

UFO, Saturday November 7, 2015, But room (Madrid)
He was in the subway path of a room I personally like the sound and special desire to see one of the legendary bands of the European Hard Rock UFO.

Always go with some doubts about age and excessive punishment especially Phil Mogg and health of Andy Parker, but doubts were dispelled when the first strains of "We Belong To The Night", that distant "Mechanix" 82, began to sound, the legendary British vocalist contrasted with the feeling that retains surprisingly intact. They followed with "Fight Night" from the "Seven Deadly" of 2012 and a theme of his latest "A Conspiracy Of Stars", "Run Boy Run" with "Rolling Rolling" were the only ones in his new job, I missed menso my Favorite this album, "Ballad Of The Left Hand Gun". Anyway, it was not until the "Lights Out", fourth in the set list, when people in the room But, that filled practically began to heat up, and with it the band.
Surprising was the "Venus", a song of that great album Return of Michael Schenker in 95 called "Walk On Water", I remembered when I saw at that time in the ill-fated room Chancellor, the issue was very well received and superbly executed by Vinnie Moore. Like old dogs ran out of putting people in the pocket with "Only You Can Rock Me".
 
Half of the concert and I was all "I pescao sold" from here, and a Mogg not wavered despite the zillions thousand brushed double that fell clasicazos as "Makin' Moves", "Cherry" and a great "Love To Love". Andy Parker gave the patches as it used to and the great Paul Raymond as usual with his keys and his eternal Les Paul for lefties, a delight.

Anyway the best was in the final with Vinnie Moore who very nearly became the concert in a clinic, we know how is the single "Rock Bottom" but tonight the American guitar happened. While Phil Mogg got into the dressing room to drink "water", we enjoyed an impressive version already (if it was not before) became a party the room But. For the encore, of course, "Doctor Doctor" unbeatable, and "Shoot Shoot".
It was a special concert, in which he saw many familiar faces, "the pelao ass" to see concerts, excited with the feeling that has always had this band they may, without the presence of excess, could have come perfectly to a level of fame of some Scorpions.

Thanks to Fernando "Starbreaker" for remembering me to this concert.

UFO + REDS' But COOL Madrid Room 7.11.15

What coincidences offers us the fate that gives us the opportunity to enjoy these parts of the brilliant Michael Schenker with MSG and the band to which he lent his talent during his most glorious time in just over two weeks, the UFO British .

Despite what the agenda is saturated concert this November, the classics are the classics and in the hall But met again several generations to pay homage to one of the most famous rock bands in the Anglo-Saxon that, Despite his long career and over the years, still maintains its aura intact. Or at least, they are still able to give worthy performances like the one offered in Madrid during the bridge of the Almudena.

The Russian side was responsible for Reds'Cool encourage the roost with its Hard Rock Classic-cut and effective, despite the absolute ignorance of most of the respectable (including myself included) who witnessed his performance served to heat up the atmosphere while the room was filling up slowly.

"Press Hard" is the latest installment and she spent much of the forty-five minutes were on stage with cuts like "The Way I Am", "Strangers Eyes", "Love Behind" or "Brand New Start" who obtained a timid response but which, little by little, they were beating people.

Much blame for this, besides they were so catchy songs, the vocalist Slava Spark had not stopped to encourage and interact with the audience asking numerous times while palms in congealed a remarkable performance with his raspy voice. In fact, he and guitarist Ilya Smirnov, who also voices support, carried the weight of the combo scenic St. Petersburg while Sergey Fedoton (with some resemblance to Glenn Hughes) and bassist Dmitry Pronin remained at his side of the stage throughout the performance, correct but giving less game.

They also had a place in his repertoire "Hey You" and "Bad Story" from his previous job that sounded pretty good, and they had a more than acceptable as sound a pretty good to be the guest band, lights showing that they have level enough to put a dent in the difficult world of Hard Rock. Parting received some well deserved applause for what I think quite well connected with an audience that already waited impatiently output Mogg, Raymond, Parker, Moore and De Luca.

With a room that was not crowded, but had a good entry appeared ten minutes past nine in the evening, actors and creators of some of the timeless rock anthems moved to the rhythm of "We Belong The Night". I mean those hymns that have transcended generations and have influenced many later bands, from the unknown to behemoths like Iron Maiden, to name the best known probably.

"A Conspiracy Of Stars" was the new "excuse" to have them on tour here but are aware of what people want to hear and not primed excess therein downloading "Run Boy Run" and "Rollin Rollin 'in the first bars and concert "Messiah Of Love" at the end before the encore, giving three songs clinched its debut. Enough.

With a bright sound and oiled as usual band, more than forty years on stage in any of the cases given "tables" to spare, given other recent court as his previous work "Seven Deadly" with "Fight Night" and "Burn Your House Down" but also their noventera fantastic time with "Venus" where Vinnie combined his acoustic with electric keyboard on the mattress courtesy of Paul Raymond.

But things did not end there since, "Cherry", rescued in recent years, and "treat" "Makin'Moves" from the album "The Wild, The Willing And The Innocent" also sounded this evening to the delight of some and indifference ignorance of others.

By age with Paul Raymond, Andy Parker and Phil Mogg really beautifully preserved. The first was very good on keyboards, guitar accompanying Vinnie and coming together with De Luca at various times for choirs.


The second maintains a punch and classic technique drummer that I really like while the umpire still preserved in alcohol (beer that will never be lacking), was sympathetic to their way and maintaining their vocal abilities more than adequately despite notársele tired at some point, to have lost some power and some other tooth. Yes, the feeling, house brand, which prints the songs for over forty years ago is still intact.

Regarding his "young" companions because as always fell short. Rob De Luca not only meets the low but provides a lot in helping the vocal duties, with the chorus of the rest, to Mogg. For its part Vinnie Moore is the focus for many, although it was difficult angle on the side of the stage for most of the concert but was joking and friendly with their peers and the public, which is appreciated. Continues his touch "personal" to the most emblematic of the band issues but that is something that despite bother a little earlier, quite some time I assumed ago so no objection because it is beyond doubt how good the six strings.

And speaking of symbolic issues, as I said before, know very well what people want to hear that they will always see them. They are aware and never missing their "hits" but rather cleverly interspersed for the concert does not falter and do not burn all the ships together. "Lights Out" was the first, chanted wildly as his mythical fellow "Only You Can Rock Me", the beautiful ballad "Love To Love", I never get tired of hearing, or to vary the elongated "Rock Bottom" with which they marched backstage moments.

Obviously Paul Raymond, as well introduced the vocalist, had something to say and keyboard resulted in an "Doctor, Doctor" put the room to throw hopelessly before "Shoot, Shoot" put the final touch and bring us, almost eleven at night with a smile on his face as they said goodbye and we applauded them.

Some think that these elderly rockers have nothing to offer at this point, but according to who we are speaking, this phrase could not be more wrong. Mogg, Parker and Raymond are living the Rock history and again proved that UFO, but not fill pavilions are a legend that one day will replace definitively off the stage. While supplies last, I will keep going to see them whenever you can, you never know when your last will.

TRANSLATED FROM SPANISH:

Continuing to advance on the schedule announced, they took the stage at 21:10 h. British UFO, one of those essential to understand the history of hard rock bands and that despite having gone dark and sparsely attractive periods, leaves its unmistakable stamp. Always with the charismatic Phil Mogg forward in a magnificent voice state, probably the best I remind you of all the shows I've seen, well it accompanied by the recovered some time ago because raymond paul for bending with rhythm guitar and keyboards providing its indispensable experience the band's sound, like the veteran Andy Parker sounded really well since its set drums.



What has made me more strange was not seeing Pete Way on bass, a guy who despite their addiction problems has always seemed to me the greatest, though in all honesty it may be better to have taken a step to aside and has left his post to Rob De Luca also did very well, also supporting the chorus with taste and discretion. And Vinny Moore what? Well, at this point no one will discover the immense quality that holds in his fingers when playing the guitar, more than proven its ability to adapt to such a large and established as a band UFO, but do not know why in this time put more missing that dirtier and dragged the Flying V Schenker, in fact well into the show sound never rang me too "clean" to understand, and that the ax US not stop interacting with sympathy and good vibes with the audience, but I do not know, his playing did not end squaring me, especially in some emblematic songs of the group.


In any case we could enjoy a great performance from nearly two hours starting with a brilliant "We Belong To The Night", a subject not well known in the discography of the group belonging to the LP "Mechanix", but its catchy tune was suitable to open fire. They entered more sinuous land with "Fight Night" pure essence UFO with voice whispering Mogg, moving to higher tones with the energetic "Run Boy Run" one of the two that fell from his latest release "A Conspiracy Of Stars" which it was also very well received.

further Increased temperature with the wonderful "Lights Out," one of the great classics of the group in what has feeling and vocal attitude was splendid, but it was in the ones I squeaked guitar sound Moore, especially the only significantly changed from the original. They continued the job with the envelope "Rollin Rollin", before returning to accelerate with the fantastic "Venus" that began with Vinnie ripping noise before ringing, this time, very convincing and effective with power, as in the huge "Only You Can Rock Me" represented one of the summits of the night time.



He lowered a little the intensity level with the intriguing "Burn Your House Down" and the hypnotic "Cherry", returning to take us to the top with an immense performance of "Love To Love" Webbed spontaneously by the respectable following the huge melody Mogg vocal and acoustic and electrical changes that fit precise with Raymond keyboards. More rhythm and guitar playing with the rotunda and recent "Mesiah Of Love" sounded very well, and with the move "Makin 'Moves", which served as a prelude to that great work of art that is "Rock Bottom" always absolutely brilliant from the first chord but stretched too with only Moore also, as he did with "Lights Out", he changed too for my taste.

Minimum break and encore with the song "Doctor Doctor" that got us all singing and bouncing little more Needless to say, before finally parting with another spectacular "Shot Shot" in which shone the vocals and Raymond De Luca supporting a fatigued Mogg something that nevertheless held perfectly the kind leaving a huge impression. Great for a big performance by a group of the largest closure.

Report: UFO + Red's Cool (But Sala, Madrid)
On 7 November 1 But room until we transported up to the decades of the '70 and '80 without having to enlist the help of Marty McFly, and we live an authentic night of Hard Rock hand Red` s Cool and a legend of the genre, the legendary UFO.


Many manes (with or without gray hair), leather jackets, young and not so young was the composition of the public who waited impatiently and excited the arrival on the scene of UFO.
A band that has more than 40 years on the ball and still active speaks volumes about what one would expect at a concert. UFO and did not disappoint the fans staunchest But leave the room with a smile and a million memories evoked with his music.
Phil Mogg, Andy Parker, Paul Raymond, Vinnie Moore and Rob de Luca appeared on stage and saw that the years ... But only physically in his case because his show is still spectacular and impeccable sound.
Madrid was one of the dates was integrated into the tour of his latest project, "A Conspiracy of Stars", which played a couple of songs, "Run Boy Run" and "Rolling Rolling"; because they focused more on their classic and spectators appreciated that.
"We Belong To The Night" opened the concert and did knock down the hall with cheers, shouts and applause, which was followed by "Fight Night".
The atmosphere was growing with one of his biggest hits, "Lights Out", but a problem with sound on the keyboard, then barely audible. It was not until "Venus" when it was arranged and we were able to savor every instrument, enjoying what sounded compact and vocal quality that retains Phil Mogg.
The party continued with "Only You Can Rock Me", "Burn Your House Down" and classic "Cherry", which sing all the lyrics and still had the strength to clap your hands every single one of the great Vinnie Moore ran for us .
Phil Mogg not stop dancing with the microphone stand and we increased transmitting power to deploy such memorable songs as "Love To Love", one as historic as it is, "Lights Out" disc.
Pun, but with "Makin 'Moves" but we moved well, always singing his lyrics and accompanying each final chord with cheers and applause.
The peak was about to begin ... "Rock Bottom" beginning to sound and madness and excitement broke out among the public. Vinnie Moore was commissioned to carry out one of several minutes, it was too long for some and for others a work of art for both ears to eyes. Such was his life Phil decided to leave the guitar enjoy the moment and briefly retired to his dressing room, from which he returned to finish the song with the final choruses.
After a brief stop, the present claimed his return to the stage, and they wanted more of them and they left them in the clouds to the previous topic. UFO met and discharged two of his most famous songs: "Doctor Doctor" and "Shoot Shoot".
Needless to say, could not conclude in a better way, a whole room turned into songs and put the fucking end to an evening of giving more than expected, thereby fulfilling all more than we expected.

We hope that the 40 years that have been playing are increasing and with the same quality they let us see in this show.

UFO - But 07.11.20154De room facing the UFO concert had enough people and of all ages in the But. The great British training was received very warmly when, about 21:10, appeared on the scene with a big smile Andy Parker (drums), Vinnie Moore (guitar), Rob de Luca (bass), Paul Raymond (keyboards) and charismatic vocalist Phil Mogg. They started with very good sound with "We Belong to the Night" almost not being able to check how the years pass by them. All are kept in very good shape overall: Phil both voice and appearance or Paul who has not abandoned his British styling of the late 70's with He stamped his shirt and vest.

They came presenting his new album, "A Conspiracy of Stars", but gave an overview of his long career interspersed throughout this last album tracks like "Run Boy Run". Precisely that was the theme chosen (he fell into third place in the set) to Vinnie Moore began to give us a lecture on how to get the best grades of his guitar. It must be said that just as the band enjoyed seeing so close, you can see all the details, was not the case with Andy Parker. The reason was that the battery was at ground level, at the same level as their peers, remaining too hidden at the back of the stage and not letting us to see their movements as the concert progressed.

Much of the role fell to Vinnie, do not hesitate to get close to the edge of the stage (and beyond, as leaning over the front rows we thought it was going to pull over) while Phil strutted, danced, smiled and a beer is trincaba after another as he showed his ragged smile (editor's note: as he told us personally before the concert joke that tore the tooth is not the Tooth Fairy but Vinnie Moore one night I needed something like a pick) and all its art. Considering his age (67 years), it has been well hydrated over time and the life he leads with such tour; retains a great voice, a feeling, something you do not know what it is but that is extremely attractive ... as in "Fight Night" slow and intense. [000108]

They were very friendly, approachable and, little by little, getting more and more into the show with jokes from Phil, mischievous comments and thanking trying to address us in Castilian with correctísimo cockney showing that they were having in big. Even Phil ripped over a wide smile undaunted Paul Raymond, who alternated guitar keyboard undeterred until many issues.

When he arrived, say, the first classic of the band with "Lights Out," the atmosphere in the room was tremendous, chanting and clapping throughout the public while Phil moved, with his small sparkling little eyes and lifted horizontally microphone to give Unleash all the charisma he has. Anyway, it does not move much but that's, that puts faces, the way he moved and his voice (sometimes too dry and torn for my taste), but that is the perfect piece for a fun show, theatrically speaking in addition to great in the musical part.

With "Messiah of Love", another cut of the new album, they left Vinnie to impress us with his playing the guitar, how great! It is a sight to see so into his role, enjoying, moving, putting faces feeling happiness by touching the notes, as did the great times. Related to this is to give a campion and file complaints book lights technician in charge of all those hassling [000054] magic when we moved and Vinnie was a horrible focus enchufándonos straight in the eye and blinding so that 90% of the front rows had to get his hand on their eyes to sell coupons ONCE few minutes later.

This began to happen when the aforementioned, and odiadísimo, technical, gave him plugging all sources that were ... not bad positions, the following! ... Can not look on stage for their intense brightness. If you have over clear eyes, like me, this makes you dust. It was the worst by far of the show, completely oblivious to the band, but they screwed up a lot under what many commented on departure.

We spent a little mosqueo to hear "Venus" from the time when Michael Schenker was with them (the result of the composition between Mogg and German, a jewel), in which Vinnie guitar changed again to catch a sound that sounded great. I was changing guitars all the time: a beautiful, beautiful ... the other pulled a magnificent collection that giving even more dynamism to his performance. Meanwhile, his companions clothing and Phil, more lively, crouched beside him between dancing and looking for something. Another topic was applauded and chanted the classic "Only You Can Rock Me", with everyone dancing that rhythm so seductive to start at the end of a football chants of "UFO, UFO ..." grateful for the band that also They heard throughout the room after falling "Cherry" with a scarf hanging from the neck or the like Guitar Vinnie.

[000118] We already one of the most critical points, and that was how great the unloading of "Love to Love"! Taking the band entregadísima a topic of those who start slowly it grows and intensifies to leave KO with a big smile. Great interpretation and attitude of the band, noting again the quality and class that leaves them everywhere. We were made to dance and enjoy like crazy, even another new topic, "Messiah of Love" by erroneously presented by Phil as "A Curiosity ..." instead of "A Conspiracy of Stars" with Rob de Luca and Vinnie at the head of stage two to sack them, leaving us totally happy.

We were going and nearing the end of a show we did not want it to end either, except for the lights that were bothering horrible and screwed again we see the band in their fantastic "Rock Bottom". Phil was racing, and the band is appearing as something very big in a small space and with everyone in the room singing the chorus while walking easy palms. A great moment of communication between U.F.O. and the public to leave for a few minutes and come back with nothing less than the theme that gives way to what we want most, the first few bars of "Doctor, Doctor", which are the starting to the shows of IRON MAIDEN (ed .: they did not come here, but God go on tour jumped as Maiden) to continue with a "Shoot, Shoot" tremendous, with everyone dancing and clapping arriving at 22: 55h.

Nearly two hours of a great concert and, had it not been the lighting technician to work that afternoon, had already been ten. UFO ... great to be back to see them anywhere although it is true that they enjoy more room.

UFO in Madrid Chronicle: flying saucer abductees, riding the best British Hard Rock.
Posted by Francisco Roman Valverde on November 27, 2015

Note: 8/10
Concert Date: November 7, 2015

Again flying saucer landing in Madrid, and of course that means a great night of high quality hard rock is coming and we had to be there to see again the great band of Phil Mogg.

They opened the concert the REDS'COOL Russians who were very active on stage, especially singer with good know-how on stage and great sound, but beyond that activity on stage contributed little. His concert happened to me unnoticed while some issues were playing a hard rock that at first sounds good but does not engage you.
Concert finally ended and it was time to place and set the stage for the release of a living legends of hard rock: UFO!

A rhythm of "We Belong To The Night" the band hit the stage at room But Madrid willing to make us enjoy a night in which everything would chant themes and topics. Since we assumed a well-balanced setlist between themes of his latest (and last album, of course) and stage classics are a must in a concert of UFO. So the following two songs correspond to the modern stage, they would be "Fight Night" and "Run Boy Run", the first issue that we would get from his new album "A Conspiracy Of Stars" who came to present.

With "Lights Out" room became a real party with all the devoted audience singing and dancing this huge song, and then come another song from the new album, in this case it would be "Rolling Rolling" which won many integers being interpreted in direct.

After sounding "Venus", including keyboard input by Paul Raymond, Ecuador arrive at the concert given wine by songs like "Only You Can Rock Me" and "Burn Your House Down" included in his penultimate album "Seven Deadly" where we could see a Phil Mogg showing off and demonstrating who is a master at controlling his voice. Voice remains at a high level, and physically remains at a good level being very active and funny with the public showing that on stage is one of those legends that there are fewer.


Undoubtedly "Love To Love" was one of the most acclaimed and better received by the public issues and that is no wonder, with that introduction and makes your hair stand on end and makes you foresee that something big is about come ... and it was, with the theme played brilliantly.

The stretch has come through songs like "Messiah Of Love" last song you interpret his new album, "Makin'Moves" and "Rock Bottom" stretched for several minutes, as usual, to demonstrate its good Vinnie Moore do with the guitar. A Vinnie Moore is still displayed equally embedded in the band in 2013 when I saw them and did not stop throughout the concert talking and smiling with Phil Mogg.

Once the theme momentarily left the stage to finish back in a few minutes to give us the last two songs of the night finish. Those songs would be, how could it be otherwise, "Doctor Doctor" and "Shoot Shoot" both received with cheers and applause and were chanted and danced to death. After that, the band would fire the public and could see close to a smiling Andy Parker caught on a great performance sounding blunt in his battery and it showed throughout the super cheerful concert playing with team members even while playing.

Great concert, ultimately, the huge UFO that got let us re delighted with their good work and their great live songs that are a pleasure to listen again and again. So it is clear, it is clear, when the flying saucer landing here again gladly let us abduct.

01 - We Belong To The Night

CONCERT REVIEW: UFO (RAZZMATAZZ 2, Barcelona 08-11-2015)

 

Translated from Spanish

UFO visit again in the debate on the desirability of the oldest stars continue storming the stage (and / or recording discs) or not. Some think that there is no problem as long as what is offered has a modicum of dignity; others are content with the simple presence of Almighty star turn, no matter who mistreat his artistic legacy to embarrassing extremes. There was a time when Phil Mogg lost the papers every now and their live in danger from minute one; and have two rakes as Pete Way and Michael Schenker in the band should not help out a way of life, say, healthy. Fortunately, these problems are long gone and UFO, strangely enough because of its rugged and long career (forty-five years!) Are living a kind of second youth: more than decent discs recorded live and not fail (assuming that the entry of Vinnie Moore ten years has had much to do). The party and the music reigns over all other considerations, it should be ended.

Red's Cool, the band kicked off the party, are Russians from St. Petersburg, but may have any video clip starring MTV hard rock ... thirty years ago! Sound and flawless execution, attitude and professionalism, but nothing we have not seen a thousand times before. But his persistence paid prize and eventually won the public, even chanted some songs.

On the other hand, the UFO was manual. Not only they have an unbeatable repertoire (they could make more, without repeating any subject), but are in a state of surprisingly. Phil Mogg and going to the seventies, but his voice is almost intact and faced the setlist smoothly. Chatty and joking (very timely jokes about beer and bottled water), keeps intact the feeling and charisma. His performance of "Lights Out", challenging and with fist raised, remain in our retinas for a long time. Vinnie Moore has found its place in the band, he looks comfortable and excited about him turned soulful interpretation of classics like "Love to Love" or "Cherry", which respects the most iconic solos recorded by Schenker, alternating with other crop own. And it was exciting to see Paul Raymond (genius in the shade, remember that he recorded the 'One Night At Budokan' MSG), doing his thing on rhythm and keyboards and rocking hard in "Rock Bottom" or "Shoot Shoot ". Andy Parker, the other "historic", was inexhaustible and solvent drums, forming an undeniable rhythm with bassist Rob de Luca. A concert that begins with "We Belong to the Night" can not go wrong. The most recent compositions ("Fight Night", "Rollin Rollin", "Venus") desentonaron not at all with the classics that everyone expected, "Only You Can Rock Me" or the perennial "Doctor Doctor". UFO are here to stay and, while not many hardcore devotees as other bands fifth, they can look into the eyes of anyone. What can I say? They managed to rise high and get goose bumps on several occasions. And that's the point, right?

As far as the setlist, « nothing to declare », same as on the last gigs, but it was just alright for me, as it was the first time I could hear some Tonka era songs live (« We Belong To The Night » and « Makin’ Moves », of course), which just made my day, + the 2 new songs, and it’s always a pleasure to have « Cherry » back again in the set…  A very nice evening, as always !

And for the record, the opening band was called Sabotage, a local band formed by some very young lads, that play with some really vintage gear, a very old-school rock / hard rock. Not bad actually, especially the lead guitarist.

And here’s a link to a good portfolio of the same night, by a nice guy that I know:

Translated from FRENCH:

UFO: The time of recklessness ... (+ SABOTAGE) - Tuesday, November 10, 2015 - Toulouse, Le Metronum

It was Tuesday, November 10, 2015. It was the time of recklessness. It was the second chapter of our trilogy seventies Toulouse concerts. After Michael Schenker's Temple of Rock and numerous classic UFO before appointment Scorpions / Europe December 4 next to the zenith, we are at Metronum for the highly anticipated concert of the band that influenced the metal scene 80's, the English UFO. UFO legendary Toulouse Metronum 10.112015


It was a time of innocence. This concert was to be the latest that we would live normally. It was not known that our entire imaging, psychological perspective that was to follow during other appointments, would never be approached with the same detachment, the same lightness.
It was the time of ignorance. Now we know what happened at the Bataclan. And if it will multiply our desire to live every moment more intensely, our distrust will be even more present


MontageMaxence and Valentin are at the gate with their mother. They have 3 and 4 years. It is obviously their first concert. Perfect embodiment of innocence and carefree, do you think their parents would have led to this concert where any further if it had happened a week later?
Our society, our community in particular have been bruised a few days after this beautiful evening at Metronum. That is why it is very difficult to come back with that recklessness that characterized us at that time, the time before, that time ago ... one week.


I especially remember the impatience that I had to find Phil Mogg as he had conquered us at the Hellfest 2011. He had a crush on Jimmy, did not hesitate to admit between two titles my son looked like as two peas in pre teen he was in his younger years. The singer still show very vocal with the public, jokant at all going on the subject that comes to mind. Is there someone who knows the tittle of our last record? "A conspiracy of stars" gives him Adrien who took the place of his son Valentin and Maxentius in the first rang.


Even if you get lost in chewing gum from his accent, he offers us proximity is valuable and propels the set in a sort of cocoon familiar. It feels good, period. Mogg's voice has not changed.
May be it is because its footprint is not so characteristic as UFO, dinosaur of its kind, does not occupy its rightful place at the most prestigious training level? How however does not bow to a career of 46 years (started in 1969 !!!) where he became charismatic papi has always kept his position brilliantly?


We used arabesques, holds very well the scene and still has a physical enviable despite the excess. In short, the anti star captures almost all eyes!

Not all, however, as to his right, there's what you might call ... a customer! Mr. Vinnie Moore please!
One who succeeded Michael Schenker there are already eleven years is a true guitar hero! Virtuoso of the six strings, it will propel us directly into the depths of unexpected notes of incredible mastery, precision and ... (no offense to some) of feeling!
Always serving the title (not the reverse), the gentleman picks distils its generous but always choosing the lucky recipients of his gifts it slides in the hollow of each main.

 



There are also three very talented musicians, Paul Raymond (70 years!) Who wields naturally the rhythm guitar and keyboards, the much younger Rob de Luca on bass and Andy Parker metronomic drums!

 



All these wonders serve to groovy tunes, this classic hard rock that swings and offers us, smile at times of intense joy lips. Each title can be enjoyed with pleasure and we move with fluidity latest installment (Messiah of love or Run boy run) to the eternal classics like Lights Out, Rock Bottom, Only you can rock me and Doctor Doctor and others. Absolute cherry, testimony of an evening that the group wanted to continue, it will add Shoot shoot, divine oblation to recall it!


Finally, I remember the wonderful version of Love to love delivered tonight. Levitating out of our bodies, our souls seem to hover, just for a moment beneath our bodies. The heart of Metronum skipped a ... Vinnie Moore (amazing !!!!), Phil Mogg and three friends then propelled us into a moment of absolute grace.


Brainless sick stigmatize music as the work of the devil. UFO listening, letting stand by arpeggios eternal Love to love, how not to find this divine thrill, time of recklessness ...

Last time we saw UFO on stage, it was in the late Elysée Montmartre and Pete Way more ... So it was with a touch of anxiety as we find them in the cauldron vaurealien .

Because, let's face it, it is a myth that is still on stage, we had narrated with Mechanix album and continues his journey with Vinnie Moore and now a new bassist Rob DeLuca. It also welcomes back Andy Parker behind the drums. But let's start by talking about the support band:


Malemort.
Unfortunately for them, it rhymes with "killing". Their metal style a bit fusion (they say ... .hum free) 90-2000 very detonates years for a public UFO. But ultimately, that's not the issue. Despite the energy displayed on stage, it's a terrible fiasco level sound, as the mix was sloppy. As often, the engineer had put the mittens and pressed too low. In a small room (500 standing), acoustically imperfect, it does not forgive and during the first four titles, it was impossible to distinguish what was said that poor singer, already not helped by the charisma. Worse, solo guitarists and only some were inaudible treble sound sometimes emerged from this mixture. This will become acceptable set for mid become infamous the very end, when the group presented the sauce. Perhaps we feel too important place held by bassist in the group where the guitarists left behind. Fortunately, the former would give them a lesson!

UFO



Because with a Phil Mogg displaying 67 years on the clock, we are dealing with old road of rock. But they have not lost their pride, Phil displaying a still sharpened silhouette. Arriving with a "You belong to the Night" from the Chapman period of the group, the band alternates hits with two pieces from the last album, and some others as "Venus", after Covenant, or even "Burn your House Down "Seven Deadly, showing Mogg of singing talent on melodic songs. It does not put one beside all evening while he is very talkative. He will be puzzled to be filmed throughout the evening ("we are not a band picture ....") And as usual tease the audience with his jokes. But singing level, it can remonstrate many, proving that it remains one of the best rock singers of all time. At his side, Vinnie Moore ensures its part shredder with his talent, while retaining the melodic solos its glorious elders. The hall applauded his performance on "Rock Bottom" where he flaunted his class. Rob actually not too low, ensuring on pieces carved by Pete Way. It has found its place and shows that UFO still a group where the bass lines are highlighted. Paul always alternates brilliantly, smile and discretion keyboard and rhythm guitar. With Andy Parker returned, we feel that the group has fun and communicates it to the public. Phil was always the class, failing all his teeth. "Lights out," "Love to Love" are still magical moments. "Only you can rock me" is one of rare power and efficiency, even today. All this passes quickly, very quickly, too quickly, as a "Shoot Shoot". It's always too hot in the room but we would have liked to continue a little longer. When the reminder sounds with "Doctor, Doctor", it is hoped an extension beyond the fateful 23.30. Alas not, and one wonders what has been able to reduce the set of a few titles, if one believes the setlists of the dates of the tour.


UFO is that, it always sends! In a room where the hair is more sparse and graying before, the mood remains rock kids with an energy of 20 years. It screams, it applauds, it snappy ... Ok, it's not a pogo but still, it's nice, as much as to hear a well-balanced sound an entire set. But everything has an end and after two songs encore, the band welcomes us and turn left to join bus to other lands. On return we see here (thank you for the Forum these posters) or elsewhere, as they continue to give us pleasure and have fun.
