band2011bwUFO, the massively successful multi-million selling veteran classic British hard rock / metal band, whose latest studio album, ‘Seven Deadly’, crashed in to the top of the UK Rock Chart on release in Spring 2012, (and the Top 75 national album chart at 63) have confirmed the following March UK headline tour dates:-

‘Seven Deadly’, an atmospherically dense fabric, consisting of exceptionally classy guitars, tight rock grooves and mesmerizing vocals, won numerous rave reviews in the UK rock press. Classic Rock Magazine’s Geoff Barton awarded the album 8/10 in his lead review in the magazine’s February 2012 issue, stating that “UFO’s first studio album since 2009’s ‘The Visitor’ is bursting with creativity and athleticism…It’s positively febrile. Mogg, in particular, is at the top of his game. He carries the record with his passion. His singing has all the vim and vigour it had on ‘Strangers In The Night’, their legendary 1979 live album; maybe even more.  His lyrics remain as erudite and evocative as anything Mellencamp, say, has ever written. ‘Seven Deadly’ begins in frantic fashion before settling into a groove that’s powerful and reflective, complex and involving. ‘Mojo Town’, the third track, is a gigantic jangling blues monster that brings guitarist Vinnie Moore to the fore; you won’t believe this so-called ‘technical musician’ can play so raw. ‘Burn Your House Down’ is packed full of loping menace; ‘Angel Station’ builds from a gentle balled into something sprawling and magnificent, complete with the added frisson of female backing vocals…In an album of numerous high spots, and tons of twists and turns, the best is left to last. ‘Waving Goodbye’, enhanced by Tommy Newton’s massive production job, is as mournful as it is monumental.”
