The classic rock and heavy metal British band UFO, famous for hits such as “Too Hot to Handle” and “Doctor Doctor,” will tour the USA in the Spring of 2016 as the supporting act for Judas Priest. Ticket prices are starting at $59.

UFO released a new album, “A Conspiracy Of Stars”, last Spring, produced by the legendary Chris Tsangarides (Anvil, Helloween, Y & T, Anvil and Judas Priest).

UFO’s current lineup includes original members Phil Mogg (vocals), and Andy Parker (drums) along with (relative) newcomers Paul Raymond (keyboards, guitar) and Vinnie Moore (lead guitarist).

Here is a classic video of UFO performing Rock Bottom.

Pay particular attention to the ultra sick guitar solo at the 3:06 mark.

If you think that was good, listen to their live album. It is killer!
