Rock legends UFO are playing at Middlesbrough Town Hall on Friday 23 April - one of only four English dates as part of their April/May The Visitor European tour.


The band promise the same energy that UFO fans have come to love over the years; traditional rock music that could hardly sound more classic; with gritty hooks, Vinnie Moore’s powerful riffs and leads, and Phil Mogg’s eccentric lyrics.


Original band members Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums) and Paul Raymond (guitar & keyboards) have been joined by American guitarist Vinnie Moore – following on from the bands successful 2009 shows which coincided with the release of The Visitor, their 20th studio album.


For UFO, it’s always been the audience who pass the final judgement on the quality of a song. Singer Phil Mogg reckons that a song can only prove itself and stand the test of time after surviving the rigours of a UFO gig.


“The parameters for our new tracks are that they have to work live,” says Phil.


“All those who’ve been into UFO for a long time will find all our characteristic trademarks on The Visitor, and anyone new to the band will enjoy our enthusiasm and dynamism.


“It’s been a long time since we’ve had a team a strong as this one. Vinnie contributes his energy and amazing guitar technique, and with Andy’s return we’ve seen the reappearance of a musician who has always been very important to the band’s original sound.”


  • UFO, Middlesbrough Town Hall, Friday 23 April. 8pm. Tickets: £17.50. Box Office: 01642 729729 or 01642 815181.
