When you get to experience your favourite band live for another time you sort of know what to expect and even how to react. No, no, no. That would not be very rock’n’roll, would it?  Last time when I saw UFO one year ago supporting ‘Best of a Decade’, they were undoubtedly on fire and I immensely enjoyed the varied setlist. This time the band proved to be even better in some respects as they put on a tremendous show full of on-the-spot improvisations, humour and energy. According to Vinnie it has been the hottest night he ever played with UFO. I could not agree more. It was too hot to handle at times (pun intended), nonetheless all the notes the band masterfully squeezed from the songs seemed to be heating up the air and the whirl of magical energy they were causing paradoxically cooled us off a bit. Never mind the heat – UFO once again proved they are one of the strongest in the business and a force to reckon with.



Phil Mogg did a lot of improvised vocal parts and was in great shape, joking both with the band members and the audience. His current voice timbre is something exceptional because it allows him to achieve added depth in the UFO material live. Also, his voice has not lost anything of its facemelting quality, dynamics and phrasing. Compared to his peers, I am taking full responsibility here, he is the best in the business and has great charisma on and off stage. Vinnie Moore had an immense fun on stage, dedicating his palatable, exemplary guitar licks to the more eye-appealing part of the audience. He was easily maneuvering between classics, new material and some obscure songs giving 200% of his self in every cut. His emotionally varied trademark guitar sound won him the audience over instantly and his stage presence contributed nicely to the dynamic style of his guitar playing. Paul Raymond worked very hard in the blue corner and was swapping guitar with keyboards and the other way round with admirable ease. He also improvised a lot, which made the whole experience more absorbing.

Backstage, he told me his new album (‘Terms and Conditions’) is to be released very soon and it will have 16 songs, but they were thinking of reducing the number. I asked him not to do that. The rhythm section of Andy Parker and Rob De Luca laid down strong beat throughout the whole show, with Rob singing along with Phil and Paul when required. Andy was also enjoying himself – you could see his face beaming with joy when he was giving a stomp to his kit not forgetting about the grove of it all.


The show was opened by a Polish hard rock band KRUK. The band features the best Polish hard rock guitarist Piotr Brzychcy whose playing thrives on melody as well as the silver-throated Tomasz ‘Visnia’ Wiśniewski whose voice echoes the late Ronnie Dio a bit and goes toe to toe with David Coverdale’s timbre. Backed up by keyboardist extraordinaire Michał Kuraś and thumping rhythm section of Messrs. Krzysztof Nowak and Darek Nawara, KRUK played an electrifying show of their material and ended up with fiery version of Deep Purple classic ‘Burn’. KRUK are a versatile type of band. They can easily go hard and heavy in ‘Lady Chameleon’, however they can also go progressive in ‘It Will Not Come Back’. It was sheer fun to see them opening for UFO for the second time, as they are one of the few entertaining bands who managed to get the audience to their feet before the main course of the evening. It is very intriguing to see what future has in store for KRUK.




At around 9 pm UFO took the stage by storm and opened with a blistering version of ‘Mother Mary’. As much as I enjoyed all the classics and evergreens UFO played that evening, the new material and ‘Venus’ were the killers of the night for me. Of course, it would be silly of me not to mention the improvised bluesy vocals from Phil in ‘Lights Out’ and ‘Rock Bottom’ while Vinnie had toned down his solo spot. Those vocals were inspiring to say the least and made the two obvious classics more than fantastic. ‘Fight Night’ followed ‘Mother Mary’. This staggering ‘Seven Deadly’ opener is a blatant statement from the band as if they were saying: ‘We’re here to rock!!!’ Works wonders in live environment. It is a display of on stage chemistry between band members, and it is hard rocking and heavy rolling. The mellow part in the middle gives the band and the audience a moment for breath, before ‘Wonderland’ explodes. Fast-paced, out-and-out riff laden rocker, it is a great choice for a live show.

Vinnie’s solo delicately echoes Blackmore’s playing and adds a brand-new poetics to the UFO sound. You could see Phil putting his whole heart into the song while he was singing about ‘the monkey, reckless winos, and black albinos’. The rest of the band were a huge foundation to rely on. ‘Wonderland’ sent shivers down my spine and took my whole body and soul apart. Energetic, heavy and to the point. ‘Mojo Town’ is a groovy, heavy and bluesy cut which slowed the pace down a bit, but made the night even hotter than it was at the beginning. UFO proved their brilliant musicianship here and I have never seen them sounding so tight. ‘Burn Your House Down’ was the most lyrical song of the evening, with again Phil and Vinnie in the spotlight. Phil’s vocal acrobatics fused the air with magical overflow of energy and lyricism whereas Vinnie’s solos and tasteful guitar playing in the song made your head spin around with amazement. And the time came for ‘Venus’. It was the first time I have seen the song performed live and it was rocking my body throughout. Love the structure of the song, with delicate vocals intermingled with gentle acoustic guitar sounds all hot and ready to explode in the fiery chorus. ‘Hell Driver’ was a song with a riveting groove and made me clapping my hands. So for me, it was the night of those six songs, and the classics were an icing on the cake.



As far as the icing is concerned, it was all fine and dandy of course. The new songs seemed to have refreshed the show a lot, and UFO turned the classics right up to eleven! They all did them effortlessly, however they managed to retain the fresh quality of the set so it did not sound worn out at all. The audience particularly loved songs they had a chance to sing along to. I loved them all.

Then it was time for backstage and I enjoyed it immensely with my dad. The band and the crew welcomed us very warmly and it was all like chatting with old friends. Kudos for that!

 

Later on I was interviewing Vinnie Moore you can find the interview here on Misty. To sum up, it was one of the best nights of my life and I am glad I could be part of yet another UFO experience.

Catch the band on ‘Seven Deadly’ tour
– this is a must for all fans of rock music.

Official Overseas Office for KRUK

 

MR: Vinnie, I’m doing this interview for ‘Misty Green and Blue’ and Tristan says ‘hi’.
VM: Hello, Tris!

MR: Also I’m doing this for Radio Katowice so could you please say something to the listeners.
VM: I’d like to say hello to everybody and hope you were at the show tonight and if not hope to see you sometime again in the future and [Vinnie lowers his voice] check out the new UFO record ‘Seven Deadly’.

MR: So maybe I can start with ‘Seven Deadly’. Which composition was the easiest and most fun to record and which was the most challenging one and why?
VM: Wow… Well, the easiest was ‘Fight Night’, because I didn’t write it – Paul did. So I didn’t do any work on that at all. No, just joking [laughs]

MR: [laughs]
VM: You know, I have a lot of fun with songwriting and I wouldn’t say anything was more difficult than anything else. Some happen faster than others, some take longer to write and some don’t take as much time to write but it’s all fun so I wouldn’t say anything was more difficult or harder to do.

MR: That’s great. ‘Burn Your House Down’ features your most lyrical solo on the album in my opinion.
VM: Thank you.

MR: Seems as if it had been recorded in first take. Or did you have to work on it for a longer period of time?
VM: There was a lot of improvising but I don’t think it was a first take. You know a few takes, maybe improvise a part and I would like it and thene add another part and maybe it came in three or four different sections.

MR: Great! ‘Wonderland’, ‘Mojo Town’ are very heavy songs. Where did you get the ideas for the riffs from?
VM: I don’t know. ‘Mojo Town’ kind of has an old vibe to me and it’s an old bluesy thing. I was hearing a lot of Robert Johnson in there. I don’t know if it turned out like that but that’s initially one of the sparks I had for inspiration and you know, I just play guitar and kind of things pop out and I don’t think too much. I just kind of let the ideas come to me.

MR: And what about ‘Wonderland’? You know, the solo is like Blackmoresque in style…
VM: On the demo actually it was like even more Ritchie Blackmore sounding. He’s a big inspiration on me and on the demo I intentionally copied Ritchie’s [here Vinnie imitates Ritchie’s guitar sound] I took a little bit of that out but I think I left a little Ritchie in there and also went off in a different direction.

MR: How does the writing partnership of Moore/Mogg look like when recording an album? How does the writing chemistry work between you guys?
VM: Usually I write the music and I present him with a bunch of ideas and he takes my ideas and turns them into ZZ Top songs and I raise the vocals afterwards…

Now Phil comes into the room, looks at us talking, smiles viciously and  says:
Phil: ‘I’m only here for the beer’.

MR: What’s your favourite moment on the album?
VM: When Phil goes: ‘oooohhhh yeaaahhh!!!’ [laughs]

MR: [laughs]
VM: [laughs] You know I don’t know if I actually have a favourite moment. And there is so many different moments. I think it’s a good record, but I don’t have one particular favourite thing.

MR: How was the first show you ever played with UFO?
VM: The first show I ever did with UFO was in Greece and I was really sick. I had a fever. I guess it was okay but I remember just feeling sick and it wasn’t the best for me.

MR: Is there a UFO song you’d wish to play live but haven’t managed so far?
VM: There’s some stuff from the ‘Force It’ record like um [here Vinnie picks up the vinyl of ‘Force It’ from the table] ‘Love Lost Love’. ‘High Flyer’ I like a lot. And also, what’s the other one? Yeah I guess they were the two. I suggested that we do them, but nobody wanted to do them so I lost.

MR: Maybe you’ll do them in the future…
VM: Maybe, who knows?

MR: How was it playing with string quartet in Germany?
VM: It was kind of interesting actually. It was a different experience, and it was weird putting two different things together; contrasting styles together like that. But because of the nature of the songs like ‘Love to Love’ they worked.

MR: Did you guys ever consider playing with full-blown orchestras?
VM: I don’t think so, no.

MR: Don’t you think that some of the songs from UFO would gain added depth when orchestrated?
VM: Yeah, I think probably any piece of music would benefit from that type of thing if you wanted to take that approach.

MR: ‘To The Core’ for me a great album and abundant with great musical styles of different origins. And it seems to me, as you said to Piotr (Piotr Brzychcy is support band Kruk's guitarist), before the interview that guitar playing is not only about shredding – it is also about the melody…
VM: Yeah, melody is so finesse, expressing something that you feel. Way more important than the amount of notes you’re playing or how perfectly you play the notes.

MR: Great. Wonderful. I have a sort of personal question. What does Vinnie Moore do in his spare time when he’s not on the road, composing or recording?
VM: You know, I’m usually playing guitar and music a lot. It’s my life. But when I put that aside I have kids and I’m spending a lot of time with the kids and always busy with either music or the family.

MR: Which form of art do you think came first music or written word?
VM: Hmm… the chicken or the egg. I don’t know but probably literature.

MR: What experience or who made you pick up the guitar in the first place?
VM: I started playing guitar because Rob De Luca called my house and said…

MR: [laughs]
VM: I started playing guitar… It was Brian May, Ritchie Blackmore and Jimmy Page and The Beatles. They made me wanna play guitar.

MR: How do you feel about I-tunes and the age of digitalization of music? Do you think it has taken toll on the live shows or on the recording process? VM: I personally like it. I mean, as a fan I like to be able to purchase songs instantaneously whenever I want. You know, when I’m travelling. I mean at least I-tunes is like selling the music and paying royalties. There’s so many other bootlegs where people are downloading for free and stealing music – of course I don’t like that. It’s not fair to any artist, but you know, I-tunes is at least paying royalties and as an artist I love that and as a consumer who wants to purchase music I love that.

MR: Any particular writers you admire personally?
VM: As music or…

MR: Book writers, authors.
VM: Well, I’ve been reading a lot of autobiographies. I’ve just read Steve Jobs which is a great book. I read Steven Tyler’s book before that, Keith Richard’s book before that. I read one on Muddy Waters. I tend to like facts more than fiction.

MR: So I hugely recommend the book by the guy who was the chef in ‘Hell’s Kitchen’…
VM: ‘Hell’s Kitchen’?

MR: Yeah.
VM: Ok, what’s it called? Just ‘Hell’s Kitchen’?

MR: No, it’s called ‘Humble Pie’. It’s a very good book, because he’s the chef but he’s also very rock’n’roll in his attitude and stuff like that.
VM: Ok. I’ll check it out.

MR: He’s first time was Gordon…
VM: Oh, I know who you mean. Ramsey!

MR: Yeah, Gordon Ramsey.
VM: I’ll check it out.

MR: How do you relate to talent shows which are gaining immense popularity nowadays?
VM: On TV? I don’t watch a whole lot of TV and when I do watch TV it’s usually sports. I’m into sports so I don’t really pay much attention to things. I’m oblivious and out of touch.

MR: I see. How’s the tour going?

VM: This is only the fourth show and so far so good. Tonight was maybe the hottest show I’ve ever played on stage and two nights ago in Eastern Germany we had an outdoor gig and it was in the 30s F so it was maybe one of the coldest gigs ever. So from one extreme to the other.

MR: What advice would you give to KRUK the band who have opened for you tonight? They’ve been trying for some time now to make it somehow big in Poland…
Andy Parker enters the room
VM: First they’d got to get a real rock star drummer like Andy Parker lying down those thumping pitter-patter beats [laughs]
Andy: Pitter-patter beats [laughs]
VM: It’s a hard question on how to be successful and what do. But basically you have to love what you’re doing and follow your heart and your passion and hopefully it works out one day.
Andy: And stick at it!!!
VM: Stick at it and love what you do.

MR: Okay. One last question. What was the most memorable show you’ve ever played with UFO?
VM: Most memorable show with UFO… Man, there’ve been a lot of memorable events in this band on stage and off stage. So I don’t have any particular thing coming to mind. Lots of memories and there’s too many to really point out one.

MR: Yeah. Thank you very much Vinnie for the interview. It was a pleasure for me.
VM: Thank you! Cheers!

Concert Review

Translated from German to English

Hard Rock - UFO in front Metzingen

"Doctor Doctor" personally

METZINGEN. They play in big houses, now in Hanover, tomorrow in Bochum, Bremen on Tuesday. The other day they found in the wine before Metzinger nearly 100 people and forced gave a "very personal concert." The delight of the rose, the longer the evening. The intimacy was so great that guitarist Vinnie Moore on the front row was almost touch the strings and singer Phil Mogg "Sex with the band announced". The comprehensive life's work performed in two hours, but only a platonic relationship.

Cult of personality is not yet reversed. With Phil Mogg and Andy Parker (drums) were men of the first hour of 1969 on the stage, came a little later Paul Raymond (keyboards, rhythm guitar) to ten years then Vinnie Moore. On bass was temps Rob de Luca, a founding member of Spread Eagle.



Snatches of Hendrix, the Doors

UFO could draw on the past. "Doctor Doctor", "Rock Bottom" and "Shoot Shoot" are signature tunes that have arrived in the station house wife. Certainly not in this version: Left and right of way is a lot of room, especially the used Vinnie Moore. He threw scraps of Jimi Hendrix ("Voodoo Child") and the Doors ("Riders on the Storm") into the air.

With screaming guitar, Moore sat almost every piece in brilliant scene. When he would have the overwhelming shadow of his predecessor, Michael Schenker (Scorpions) illuminate, he indulged in extravagant solos, which were each taken by itself worth the trip.

And yet: The healthy mix of old favorites such as "Lights Out" and songs from the new album "Seven Deadly" gave an overall picture of the hard rock of the 70s, he can hardly be played better. Only rarely, however, in such an intimate setting. (Co)

UFO at Bluesgarage - View more pictures and German REVIEW

GERMAN to ENGLISH translation

The British rock legends UFO plays in these spring-like Friday night at the Blues Garage Isernhagen a much acclaimed concert with old classics and new songs from her recently released album on SPV Records "Seven Deadly".
Despite the imposing entrance fees many fans come to the club, located just outside of Hanover. Something funny is the one way already, the club is pretty much in Niemandslos somewhere between industrial buildings and business parks, or similar signs are nowhere.

Without opening act but failed in a lot of power in 1969 to active rocker frontman Phil Mogg and guitar virtuoso Vinnie Moore are going to clock 21.15. The Blues Garage is filled very well and a place in the first row is hard fought.
The band opened her concert with a handful of songs from your latest book "Seven Deadly. With 'Only You Can Rock Me', the middle of the set, the band started their own Hitfeuerwerk. The song is taken from the audience with "distance", the frenetic. Then the proverbial fair scheinte read her audience and the band has more than before, under control.
Phil Mogg, that evening completely dressed in black, seems to enjoy the euphoria and operates this evening much small talk with the fans, what does the general entertainment value very well.

In the last third of the set is the time of guitar legend Vinnie Moore, who interpose in the song 'Rock Bottom' and 'Doctor Doctor' again and again very well-done guitar solos. Both songs are in a particular song length of 8 minutes plus estimated, more than celebriert.
After a brief encore is already final and then the band adopted under strong addition calls from the public.

Conclusion:
You get this evening issued a well-known British rock legends UFO seen on the sign of the times are so far not really spührbar rushed past, and hope you can guess that the next few years continue to actively play on the globe.
Setlist:
MOTHER MARY, FIGHT NIGHT, WONDERLAND, LOSER, LET IT ROLL, MOJO TOWN, BURN THE HOUSE, ONLY YOU CAN ROCK ME, LOVE TO LOVE, LIGHT DRIVER, VENUS, TOO HOT TO HANDLE, LIGHTS OUT, ROCK BOTTOM, DOCTOR DOCTOR SHOOT SHOOT.

Hi Tristan,

Thanks for your beautiful ufo website. I really enjoyed it a lot in anticipation of ufo’s gig in Bremen.

Please find attached scans of Paul Raymond’s pick that he used Tuesday night

the ticket for the Tuesday show,

an old ticket from the show in Wilhelmshaven
(where Showtime was filmed)

and an very old ticket from 1986 when UFO played at Stadthalle in Bremen sandwiched between the openers Dokken and the headliner Accept. Accept where at their climax in those days but i heard many people in the crowed saying that it is a shame that a band like UFO is playing before accept. For me it was the first time to see UFO live. In hindsight it was not their strongest time with Atomic Tommy on guitar but i loved it, especially the light show during lights out when during the chorus the lights were actually switched off for a second and the whole arena of a few thousand people was in complete darkness only to be blinded afterwards when there were floodlight turned on full beam towards the audience.

Concerning the attendance and the light show Tuesdays performance in Bremen was a very different cup of tea. Instead of playing in our biggest indoor arena UFO were booked in a basement club called Meisenfrei. The tour bus blocked half the road as it was parked smack bang in front of the entrance and the street is quite narrow. It was a nice spring day with lots of sunshine (which is a rare occasion in this part of the world) so before the gig most people sat outside in a make shift beer garden on the sidewalk between the tourbus and the club. Initially i was worried if there would be enough people showing up to honour our band. The location is small and dominated by a long bar. Then there were couches, chairs and tables giving it a pub atmosphere. I watched the opener The Wheel from my chair less than 2 yards away from their guitar player. A funny bloke who throroughly wiped his guitar before and after the show and wore working gloves to carry his flightcase from the stage. Technically perfect but lacking a bit of the hard rock feel. Nevertheless it was a good gig of them, and slowly the place filled up and I moved from my chair towards the edge of the stage. If I had tried this in 1986 it would not have been that easy.

What do I say about UFOs performance? Their setlist and their good shape have been well documented on your website before. Still I was blown away. On the one hand i was mesmerized seeing my heroes perform in this living room right in front of me. On the other hand they felt so at ease. There was lots of smiles, lots of banter and small talk among them and interaction with the audience. Phil told us many stories between the songs. e.g. he took he first flight ever to Bremen when they had a TV performance at Radio Bremen Beatclub. Initially he drank Heineken on stage though Bremen is the home of Becks. Phil mentioned that he cried of joy while passing the Becks factory (which is just half a mile away from the venue). Of course he got served with a Becks which Phil claimed was delivered in a limo by the Becks CEO and Phil performed a beer tasting praising the slight taste of peaches and walnut... Phil and Vinnie kept joking around and Vinnie started playing Ace of Spades and let the audience sing Motörhead. Needless to say their actual set was amazing. Not only "same old shit" as Phil remarked but also stuff form the new CD. Andy Parker was well hidden between the Marshall stacks (Paul Raymond could not even see him, well the stage was small). But he was full of energy. Rob da Luca is a bass player just created for UFO. Not as bouncy as a young Pete Way but coming very close.

It was a perfect evening. I guess they spend around 2 hours on stage as they jammed quite a lot in between the songs and also had some really extended versions of their hits. They did not leave the stage between the encores (it would have meant walking through the audience as the dressing room was in the back of the venue). To sum it up: I feel really privileged to have experienced the band that close. It felt as we were having a beer together.

Best regards,

Jigal Beez

Concert Review
(added 30th May)

UFO
Detmold, Stadthalle
10.5.12

In einer Kritik zum aktuellen Album "Seven Deadly" wurde moniert, daß UFO seit Jahren über die Dörfer tingeln und sich damit unter Wert verkaufen würden. Das ist richtig – und dann auch wieder nicht. Zum einen sind die Zeiten, da man das altehrwürdige Hammersmith Odeon in London füllte, seit über 30 Jahren vorbei. Andererseits wird die Gruppe nach wie vor gerne für Open Airs gebucht, z.B. direkt am Tag nach diesem Konzert, als man in Italien ein Festival mit JUDAS PRIEST spielte. Und wenn man "Status gestern und heute" und dergleichen beiseiteläßt: In einem kleinen Rahmen scheint sich das Quintett unübersehbar wohl zu fühlen. Erst recht in Detmold: Schloß mit Park, Fußgängerzone nebenan, blauer Himmel obendrüber... Ideale Voraussetzungen für einen geilen Konzertabend!
Zu dem THE WHEEL ihren Teil beitrugen. Bedenkt man, daß mit Sicherheit keiner der ca. 300 Anwesenden vorher einen Ton von der Formation gehört hatte, konnten die Norweger mit den Reaktionen mehr als zufrieden sein – es gab sogar Zugaberufe! Und das trotz eines durchwachsenen Starts: Die ersten beiden Songs knallten zwar gut rein, gehörten für meine Ohren jedoch zu der Kategorie: "Live okay, aber auf Platte stinklangweilig!" Nur die gelungene Gitarrenarbeit verhinderte den Drift in die Belanglosigkeit. Beim dritten Titel "Sparks" war ich aber schlagartig hellwach; erinnerte der Akustik-Anfang doch tatsächlich an BON JOVIS "Wanted Dead Or Alive"! Hier wurden die Versatzstücke des Genres zu einem stimmigen Ganzen mit herrlich fließenden Gitarrenlinien zusammengefügt. Ganz klar der Höhepunkt insgesamt kurzweiliger 35 Minuten.
Dienst nach Vorschrift war es definitiv nicht, was UFO anschließend 105 Minuten lang boten. Die Musiker platzen förmlich vor Spielfreude, streuen spontan den "The Visitor"-Track "Hell Driver" ein und hängen "Shoot Shoot" als letzte Zugabe an die offizielle Setlist (siehe unten) an. Insgesamt 15 Songs, vorgetragen – man kann es nicht oft genug sagen – von einer wie entfesselt aufspielenden Band. Andy Parker zimmert ein grundsolides Fundament, Rob De Luca vertritt Pete Way so souverän, daß man den Spargeltarzan nicht einen Moment vermißt (und scheint ihm auch gleich noch seinen Baß gemopst zu haben...), und Allrounder Paul Raymond stopft gewohnt unauffällig/effektiv jede eventuell noch verbleibende Soundlücke. Phil Mogg, der den Abend mit Kaffee bestreitet, weiß, was er seiner unverändert charakteristischen Stimme zumuten kann, ist die Ruhe selbst und in Plauderlaune. Der Mann ist in blendender Verfassung – mit 64 Jahren! Und er weiß, daß Vinnie Moore der eigentliche Star ist. Der Amerikaner kann offenbar alles spielen – und die Leichtigkeit, mit der er Salve auf Salve – fast ohne Tremolo-Einsatz! - aus dem Ärmel schüttelt, rückt ihn in die Nähe der ganz Großen. Spätestens als er bei "Venus" seine Dean-Axt ohne den geringsten Aussetzer auf dem Rücken spielt, kennt die Begeisterung keine Grenzen mehr. Applaus auf offener Szene, Maulsperren, Jubel über traumhaft eingespielte Musiker, die keine Mätzchen nötig haben. Ein Konzerterlebnis der besonderen Art.

UFO
Detmold, Stadthalle
10.5.12

In a review of the current album "Seven Deadly" has complained for years that UFO hoof it through the villages and sell it under value would be. That's right - then again not. On the one hand are the days when they filled the venerable Hammersmith Odeon in London, passing for over 30 years. On the other hand, the group is still booked like for open air events, eg right on the day after this concert, as they played a festival in Italy with JUDAS PRIEST. And if you "status yesterday and today" and the like can be set aside: In a small frame, the quintet seems obvious to feel comfortable. Especially in Detmold castle with a park, pedestrian street next door, blue sky above about it ... Ideal conditions for a hot evening concert!
At the THE WHEEL contributed their part. Considering that certainly had none of the approximately 300 attendees heard before a note of the formation, the Norwegians could be more than satisfied with the responses - there were even calls for encores! And despite a streaky start: The first two songs popped Although purely good, but belonged to my ears to the category: "Live okay, but boring to drive," Only the successful guitar work to prevent drift into irrelevance. The third track "Sparks" I was suddenly wide awake, remembering the acoustic beginning but actually BON JOVIS "Wanted Dead Or Alive"! Here, the set pieces of the genre into a coherent whole with wonderfully flowing guitar lines were joined together. Clearly the highlight of a total of entertaining 35 minutes.
Work to rule, it was definitely not what UFO then offered 105 minutes. The musicians burst before formal playfulness, spontaneously spread the "The Visitor" track "Hell Driver" and mount "Shoot Shoot" as the last addition to the official set list (see below). A total of 15 songs, sung - you can not say it often enough - as a band unleashed aufspielenden. Andy Parker, a rock-solid foundation Zimmert, Rob De Luca represents Pete Way as confident that you do not miss the asparagus Tarzan for a moment (and it seems to have the same or gemopst his bass ...) and all-rounder Paul Raymond lived quietly stuffing / effective any possible remaining sound gap. Phil Mogg, who denies the evening with coffee, knows what he can expect his distinctive voice unchanged, the rest is self and Plauderlaune. The man is in excellent shape - 64 years! And he knows that Vinnie Moore is the real star. The Americans apparently can play anything - and the ease with which he salvo after salvo - almost no tremolo use! - Shakes off the cuff, it moves into the vicinity of the greats. At the latest when he plays in "Venus," his Dean-ax without the slightest drop outs on the back, the enthusiasm knows no bounds. Applause on the open scene, foot locks, cheering on a dream-established musicians who have no gimmicks needed. A concert special experience

ORIGINAL GERMAN REVIEW | Translated from German to English

UFO, The Wheel, Night Rain in concert (Ingolstadt, May 2012)

Also, few viewers can be quite noisy


The headliner can inspire. Singer Phill Mogg knows his craft simply

UFO

After a renovation break, which is significantly extended, unfortunately, due to a faulty cable, it is done. UFO enter the stage. This was now freed from the second drum and amps all the support act, so that Phill Mogg and his colleagues have plenty of space.

Without the British prefaces large give the same gas. "Mother Mary" is defined as the first song the same show that the group wants to rock and can still correct. This coup succeeds wonderfully. Now also available in virtually all guests attending the event hall in a loose group in front of the stage and celebrate the presence of UFOs because the angular movement number immediately brings in the crowds. The band is quite full of motion. Above all, bassist Rob De Luca can hardly keep still. He and guitarist Vinnie Moore pose together again and send a clear message that they have the appearance of visibly fun.

The set list is by mixed, but the latest album "Seven Deadly" is of course well represented. But that does anything from anyone, because the CD is pretty good.

Right at the beginning Phill Mogg reported the results of football Bayern Munich, who on the night are not good for Bayern fans. In Ingolstadt, but leaves all the cold, the fans want UFO listen. Already in the first pause after "Fight Night", the opener of the current CD are UFO -cries aloud. The audience seems to have have fun in a good mood and also Phill Mogg. He grins at the audience and continuously does not shy away from being chat with the audience a little. With "Let It Roll," the British can be the first true classic from the hook. The number to be celebrated properly. All smiles, the way people aged 16 and over 60 belong to stretch the tape counter. Interestingly, it is not the case that only the classics of UFO catch on, that's how many bands that have reached a certain age. The songs on "Seven Deadly" be heard.

For laughter makes Phill Mogg, as he is on the word "grumpy" attempts. After several attempts, the singer can pronounce the word correctly, however, and is delighted that the fans understand what he means. After "Mojo Town," he says still that UFOs do not use Schrammel guitar. Many bands, especially current metal bands, their riffs shred just so down says Phill. UFOs do not so, he says.

At the next performance is also the guitarist Vinnie Moore impressively demonstrated. "Burn The House" is also a number that allows beautifully played like chords. "Only You Can Rock Me" strikes again in a different direction. The song is absorbed and before the stage goes across generations from the punk. UFO have it good in that. Then, when even "Love To Love" resonates, the crowd is ecstatic. One would not believe how much noise can make such a small crowd.

Now the musicians really easy game and still have a lot of trump cards. "Lights Out", "Rock Bottom" and "Doctor Doctor", now just come songs, music history, written, and as with "Shoot Shoot" the concert is over, all convinced that we share a wonderful evening has spent.

  • First Mother Mary
  • Second Fight Night

UFO at the Bolwerk in Sneek on May 18th 2012

Tonight UFO had it's next to last gig of their European Tour at 'Het Bolwerk' in Sneek, where they were promoting their latest album 'Seven Deadly'.
I was unsure what to expect from 'Het Bolwerk', as I had never been there before, but I was surprised!
The sound is pretty good and the stage generally affords pretty good views. All in all a decent place to go if your favourite band happen to be playing.
 
I arrived in time to catch the opening band, The Wheel from Norway.
They present a combination of different rock genres from the 70's, 80's and 90's. They certainly were doing a good job warming up the crowd banging out there classic rock sound.
I took my place quite near the front of the stage, take some pictures and struck up a conversation with the fellow next to me.
We talked about UFO and 80's rock in general.
 
After about a thirty minute set change, the lights dimmed and UFO took the stage. I managed to see their setlist before they started and it looked great.
The 16-song set touched on every classic era of UFO's history, reaching as far back as the debut album, 'Phenomenon' to the band’s latest 'Seven Deadly'.
 
The show kicked off with 'Mother Mary'  from 1975's excellent 'Force It' album, followed by two new songs 'Fight Night' and 'Wonderland'.
I bought the new CD on the release date, listen to it over and over again, so it's absolutely great to hear some brand new songs performed live tonight.
The band followed with the classics 'I'm A Loser' and 'Let It Roll' before once again returning to the present with 'Mojo Town' and 'Burn The House Down'.
 
Phil was in fine form and spoke quite a lot between the songs and every now and then he cracked a joke, something that was much appreciated by the enthusiastic crowd. Mogg has been one of my favorite singers in rock music. His voice is really amazing... he can sing high, he can sing powerful and also puts some ''bluesy vibe'' into his vocal style, I've always loved that!
Pete Way’s replacement, Rob de Luca, does a fine job onstage. He is a great bass player, relaxed and energetic, and forms a very solid rhythmic section alongside drummer Andy Parker. I love Andy's drumming, he gets so into it! A hard working, passionate drummer, It's great to see him back in the band again.
 
And what to say about Vinnie? He's an icon! his guitar-licks were tight and faultless throughout and he also added in a bit of his own improvisation to the lead parts in songs such as 'Rock Bottom' and 'Shoot Shoot' to fit his excellent playing style. A guitar maestro he is for sure!
My only point of criticism is the work done by the lightning designer. The spotlight on Vinnie was much too weak during the solo's and a constantly horrible inefficient orange glow annoys me.
 
UFO continued with 'Only You can Rock Me' from the 'Obsession' cd followed by 'Love To Love' with Paul Raymond on keys, another great talent. His contributions are essential to the bands sound.
The band performed one relatively recent song, 'Hell Driver' from 'The Visitor', then it was back to the past for Venus, Too Hot To Handle, Lights Out and 'Rock Bottom', that always gets the crowd bouncing.
Phil raised his microphone stand as high as it could go and turned the microphone towards the audience, singing ´Rock!.. Rock Bottom..!´.
He gets the crowd on his side.
It´s great to see after all these years these songs still are very strong and have surely survived the test of time.
 
After some 'thank you's' and a few moments off-stage, there was time for two encores: ‘Doctor Doctor’ (which brought the crowd on and off their feet again) and probably the best version of ‘Shoot Shoot’ I have ever heard, with lots of audience participation and in particular Vinnie's jamming expands the song to over thirteen minutes in length, which just proves what a top guitarist he is.
 
Vinnie finally did a short intro piece of Led Zeppelin's 'Whole Lotta Love', supported by Andy's drumming. Absolutely fun!
 
Hope I could settle with just this one night experience. A lack of time and the number of gigs I've allready visit last week made me decide to stay at home tomorrow, but I just know I’m going to regret this. One thing is for sure, I had a great night, and about the band must be said: they’re high quality and stand for their music, not forgetting the phenomenal efforts of Batttttty on the merchandise stand as always...!
Thanks for maintaining your fantastic website Tristan!!
Much respect to all the hard work, Thanks again!
