UFO WITH SAXON AND SPECIAL GUEST JAMES NICHOLS
Rock legends UFO have announced a U.S. tour with very special guests SAXON
UFO, with its longstanding lineup of Phil Mogg (vocals), Paul Raymond (keyboards/guitar),Andy Parker(drums), Vinnie Moore (guitar) and Rob De Luca (bass), is coming back to the U.S. after a phenomenally successful sold-out tour in early 2016. They are currently working on their 22nd studio album — reportedly a collection of covers — after the last studio release, “A Conspiracy Of Stars”, in 2015.
SAXON will be touring in support of its latest release, 2015’s “Battering Ram”, as well as the new double live album set, “Let Me Feel Your Power” (out October 28 in North America), both on the UDR Musiclabel. After great success with both U.S. headline shows and dates withJUDAS PRIEST over last few years, the band will return as part of this great package. SAXONis Biff Byford (vocals), Paul Quinn(guitar), Nigel Glockler (drums), Doug Scarrett (guitar) and Tim “Nibbs” Carter (bass).
They are a perennial fan favorite as down to earth, approachable guys who support autism awareness and our military veterans. They’ve traveled to Kuwait, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay as part of USO tours and played festivals such as Rocklahoma, Rock on the Range, Sturgis Throttle Fest, EarthDayBirthDay and Daytona Bike Week. Saving Abel has appeared on the Yahoo Live Concert series twice in the last year.
Louisville-based post grunge rock group Tantric have defined themselves through 6 studio albums as a groove laden, guitar rich rock band with dense vocal harmonies and infectious vocal melodies. Frontman Hugo Ferreira’s unique soulful baritone vocals, ranging from angsty rasps to melodious melancholy are a testament for the signature Tantric sound. Along with the usual intricate guitar work and infectious riffs layered over complex textures has become the hallmark of the Tantric sound.
