UFO are heading out on a 50th anniversary UK tour - their last ever with Phil Mogg. Extra London show just added.
UFO will embark on a very special 50th anniversary UK & Ireland tour next spring.
As well as commemorating their half-Century landmark, the dates will be their last UK & Ireland shows with sole constant member Phil Mogg as frontman.
Phil announced his retirement in May, saying: “This decision has been a long time coming, I’ve considered stepping down at the end of UFO’s previous two tours. I don’t want to call this a farewell tour as I hate that word, but next year’s gigs will represent my final tap-dancing appearances with the band.
“2019 marks UFO’s 50th anniversary, so the timing feels right. There will be a final tour of the UK and we will also play some shows in selected other cities that the band has a strong connection with. But outside of the UK this won’t be a long tour.
“Being out on the road isn’t always tremendously luxurious and although the playing is as great as it ever was, the stuff that surrounds it becomes very tiresome. I always told myself that when I reached that stage I would step down, and that’s what I’m going to do. This is the right time for me to quit.”
