UFO 'Last Orders' 50th Anniversary Tour Dates

 Image result for ufo last orders

English rock legends UFO need no introduction and we most certainly don't need to persuade you to ensure that you are in attendance at the band's upcoming 50th Anniversary UK Tour...we like to think that it's more a question of how many dates can you get to?

UFO have already sold out a number of shows and it's no surprise considering that the aptly named 'Last Orders' tour is not only to commemorate 50 phenomenal years in music, but will also be the last dates with the only constant member, front man and gentleman Phil Mogg.

Glenn Hughes 'Classic Deep Purple' 2019 UK Tour Dates

Glenn Hughes is a man who just keeps on giving and this year is no different as he continues his 'Classic Deep Purple Live' Tour across the UK starting this May.

The UK 2019 part of the tour promises to be a 2-hour classic homage to Glenn's time with the MK 3 and MK 4 incarnations of Deep Purple!

If you managed to catch any of the 2018 tour dates, you'll know that you're in for a real treat with a set list to fantasize over. Glenn Hughes is one of the biggest voices in rock and although a large handful of rock and heavy metal vocalists have inevitably lost a lot of the power and emotion that they once had in their pipes, Glenn's skill seems to be aging like a fine wine. His vocal and performance are increasingly impressive with each tour. 

Special guest this time around will be British blues rock guitarist Laurence Jones who is tipped as the future of Blues Rock having previously supported the likes of Status Quo, Gary Clark Jr, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, James Bay, Van Morrison, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Joe Bonamassa, Jools Holland, Eric Burdon, and many more.

So don't delay! Glenn Hughes is set to take a short break after this tour so it might be your last chance to catch this Classic Deep Purple set.
