UFO Comments On Upcoming North American Tour Dates

UFO's 2011 North American tour with special guests Mindflow will kick off this Thursday May 5th at The Crazy Donkey in Farmingdale, NY. The band will be touring North America in support of the band's greatest hits collection entitled "Best of a Decade" which is out now on SPV/Steamhammer. UFO is also in the process of working on a new studio album scheduled for release this fall.

Drummer Andy Parker commented on the upcoming dates: "I can't wait to get back on the road again, before my wife finds me something else to do. It's been two years since we toured the U.S. so I am really looking forward to the upcoming shows. Where will we see you?"

Guitarist Vinnie Moore chimed in: "I am looking forward to the may USA tour. We haven't played any shows since December and i have some pent up energy that needs to be released before I go mental.
