Thanks to Ed Winegar for the photo's and report on his facebook page:

"It is 2:26 am and I just got home from the Best UFO concert I have ever been to. I never saw them with Schenker. Vinnie was flawless tonight and Phil was amazing. I walked out of the show tonight in utterly stunned at how good Phill sounded tonight. The mix was perfect and they played a few surprise tunes like Ain't No Baby, and Baby Blue and opened with a Chapman classic Long Gone"

CONCERT REVIEW

UFO/Saxon At The Scout Bar Houston TX 3-9-2017

After what seemed to be a fairly prolonged unfortunate series of technical difficulties,headliner  UFO finally stormed their stage at approximately 10:15 pm. The band is touring to promote their newest album A Conspiracy Of Stars as well as deliver their much beloved classics.  An eagerly awaiting sea of the British band’s fans were served up “Long Gone” to kick off the set.

Frontman and original member Phil Mogg still has the energy and power to deliver the vocal goods as well as a sense of humor during his audience interactions.

Simultaneously rocking both the keyboard and delivering his recognizable left handed guitar style, Paul Raymond made a few very brief appearances from behind the keyboard much to the audience’s delight. Vinnie Moore’s diabolic guitar wizardry screamed and ripped while bassist Rob De Luca’s smooth bottomless baritone  thrums throughout. On drums, original member Andy Parker’s infectious beat kept the entire band on point...

Hello loved ones
It was a great show last night in Los Angeles. UFO is a great band that has stood the test of time. I found it humorous the Phil Mogg, the singer, and I have the same haircut now. He pointed me out and said " Me and the big guy I are in same Club". In this picture he's pointing at the smokin' hot ladies of the band "2 Hot 2 Handle".


Thank you Cherry Blackwolf for helping me get the ticket.

Cheers Dennis for posting and sharing the story

... UFO have settled on a great lineup that includes founding drummer, Andy Parker, longtime keyboard and rhythm guitarist, Paul Raymond, the incredible Vinnie Moore (Who has now been in the band for the last 14 years which is right up there with Michael Schenker’s 15 year combined guitar stretch!) and rounding out with Rob De Luca who has handled bass duties since 2008.

Highlights of tonight’s set included Vinnie Moore ripping through an extended version of “Rock Bottom”.  The double vision encore of “Doctor Doctor” and “Shoot Shoot“.  And the always amazing “Love To Love“.  The keyboard intro still gives me the shivers…

CONCERT REVIEW – UFO and Saxon live in Las Vegas

Review and photo's by JASON LENT

With over 20 studio albums under each band’s belt, UFO and Saxon represent the old-school rock and roll approach to life. Write some songs, record an album and then tour the hell out of it. At the end of the tour, hopefully you made a little money...

...UFO offered the melodic counter punch to Saxon’s fierce set with a ridiculous arsenal of riffs that any metal band would die to possess. Singer Phil Mogg, having lost none of his range, shared stories over a pint between songs; giving the band a chance to catch their breath between each burst of power. Though not present on the band’s most revered albums, guitar virtuoso Vinnie Moore fits his ridiculous technical ability into the band’s sound so well that few could miss the infamous Michael Schenker...

...The band’s best songs (“Lights Out”, “Too Hot To Handle” and “Rock Bottom”) are masterworks in rock ‘n’ roll and hearing them live reveals just how influential UFO’s sound has been on younger bands over the decades that followed. “Burn Your House Down” possesses a melancholic tinge that Queensrÿche mined for entire albums while “Baby Blue” laid to waste all the hair ballads of the 1980s (sorry Poison) with a delicate acoustic melody entwined with Mogg’s sensitive lyrics...

Vinnie Moore Interview for the upcoming USA tour

UFO Soars Into Anaheim With Saxon In Tow

February 18, 2017 by

For those of you who prefer rock bands to be hard and/or full of hair, you’ll be excited to know that the veteran hard rockers of UFO and Saxon have decided to go on tour together. And as Southern Californians, we’ll have more than enough chances to bang our heads to the pulsing boom of their music. Be sure to catch them at the House of Blues San Diego Mar 14, Belasco Theater Los Angeles Mar 16, or The Grove of Anaheim Mar 18.

Starting out as a space rock band in the early 70’s, UFO has made its way through various forms of rock music, as well as lineups. Amidst all this change however, founding member Phil Mogg has managed to keep at least one thing consistent: the quality of his band’s musical output. To aid in this endeavor, Mogg sought out the mind of Vinnie Moore, who joined the band in 2003 to take up the role of lead songwriter.

Just weeks before he takes several stages all across America, Moore was kind enough to sit down and converse about all things music: how he makes it, how it exists today, and how we’d all be dead without it.

Concert Guide Live: I read on your website that you composed the majority of your latest album, Conspiracy of Stars. Was your input on the band’s music this significant when you first joined the group back in 2003?

Vinnie Moore: Yeah, it was pretty much the same. I think Phil wasn’t necessarily looking for only a guitar player, he knew he needed someone who wrote music. And that’s kinda why I got the gig. Not only for the guitar playing, but for the fact that I was a writer and he needed a partner, like he’d done with other people in the past.

CGL: When you write, do you ever have any specific goals, or, a specific direction you want to take the band? Do you listen to any particular music/artists to inspire your writing?

VM: I don’t really think about it that much, it’s kinda like, you pick up the guitar and start playing and whatever comes out, comes out. And my philosophy is write a bunch of songs and see what sticks. Then I’ll send the demos to Phil and he’ll pick the ones he feels he could do something with and they’ll be the ones we’ll go with.

CGL: I’ve seen videos of you guys playing “Love To Love” in which an acoustic guitar is set up on a waist high stand that enables you to play both electric and acoustic in the same song without taking off one guitar and putting on the other. I think that is just delightfully clever. How did you come to use this technique?

VM: Well, the Gracie Stand has been available for quite some time. But I never really had one until I joined UFO and there was a need for it. And actually – it’s funny – we tour over in Europe a lot, and our manager is really good friends with some of the guys in Scorpions. And when I first joined the band, you couldn’t get one of these Gracie Stands over there in Europe, so he would always borrow Rudolf Schenker’s. We would take it on the road and use it, until one time the Scorpions also needed it, at which point we finally had to get our own. But they were hard to get for a while. It was like, there’s only one in the world and Rudolf Schenker has it.
CGL: Beyond just playing music, I see that you’ve also done a couple of instructional videos. That must feel pretty great, you know, showing people how to access the wonderful world of music.


VM: Yeah, it definitely feels good. When I was a kid playing guitar, if I could have watched somebody’s video or talked to them at a clinic and directly asked a question that would have just been amazing.

CGL: Do you also find yourself diving into that world of instructional YouTube videos?

VM: Oh I’m always learning. I mean, music is endless. You can never stop learning. And yeah, I’ll check things out online, I’ll look into different musicians. Not only guitarists, but horn players, violin – whatever – you can pick up things everywhere.

CGL: Through the Internet and the spread of information and technology, I like to think we’re currently in a musical renaissance of sorts. What are your thoughts on this?

VM: I totally agree, but I think it’s also making people more lazy, too. I can’t tell you how many times people will send me messages on Facebook asking me if I could transcribe one of my songs for them in tablature. And you know, when I was a kid, I put on the record and learned the stuff. It’s really important to do it yourself because your ear gets better by doing it that way.

CGL: How would you describe the importance or function of music? In a general sense, you know, like in the context of a society or our species.

VM: I think people would be dead without music. It’s so important – it provides so much entertainment, so much emotion. I mean – it’s magical. You listen to a song on the radio and it can take you back to when you were a kid. It’s just unbelievably powerful. I’ve been studying it all my life and understand a lot about it, but then, in another way, I don’t understand anything about it. It just hits you very, very deeply. It’s spiritual.

UFO & SAXON Announce

Spring US Tour – The British Invasion 2017!

Rock legends UFO have announced a US tour with very special guests SAXON beginning March 9 in Houston, TX and continuing into early April.
 
UFO, with their long standing line up of Phil Mogg (Vocals), Paul Raymond (Keyboards / Guitar), Andy Parker (Drums), Vinnie Moore (Guitar) and Rob De Luca (Bass), are back in the US after a phenomenally successful sold out tour in early 2016.  They are currently working on their 22nd studio album after the last studio release A Conspiracy of Stars in 2015.
 
SAXON are touring on their latest release Battering Ram together with the new double live album set Let Me Feel Your Power (out October 28 in North America), both on the UDR Music label. After great success with both US headline shows and dates with Judas Priestover last few years, the band are back as part of this great package. SAXON are Biff Byford (Vocals), Paul Quinn (Guitar), Nigel Glockler (Drums), Doug Scarrett (Guitar) and Tim “Nibbs” Carter (Bass).
  
UFO‘s Phil Mogg states, “We are polishing the guitars, cleaning up the drums, I have a new front tooth, and our crew have bought themselves fresh mascara, some new tunes, and an airline ticket to the USA, to be joining our old pals SAXON on what will be a celebrational tour of all our favorite places. Look forward to seeing you there! Kisses, UFO.”
 
SAXON‘s Biff Byford adds, “It’s great to be back on the road with UFO. The last time we toured together was in the 80’s so it should be fun and a unique package for the fans. See you in March. Keep the faith.”
 
Special guest on all shows is Jared James Nichols.
