British Invasion 2017 U.S. Tour With UFO & Saxon Announced

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 the 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 for the 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 Priest over last few years, the band is back as part of this great package.

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.
