Just witnessed your
best live gig?.. send us a review!
Assembly, Leamington Spa 28 April 2010
One of the
biggest British rock bands of all time UFO touched down in Leamington as
part of their tour in support of their current album The Visitor.
Voodoo Six got the night off to a rocking start with a set full
of powerful riff laden rock reminiscent of bands such as The Almighty
and received a great reception.
out(!), mini search-lights circling the stage and the Sensational Alex
Harvey Band track Faith Healer intro tape heralded the arrival on stage
of the headliners starting their set with a rousing Let it Roll.
consisted heavily of tracks from the 1979 Strangers in the Night highly
acclaimed as one of the greatest live albums of all time.
aforementioned album is really a live best of and includes classic after
classic many of which performed at this show including the rock anthem
Only You Can Rock Me, the 100 miles an hour Lights Out, Too Hot To
Handle and Doctor Doctor - one of the greatest rock tracks ever
several tracks from the new album The Visitor including a superb Stop
started with a snippet of The Doors Riders on the Storm before an
extended Rock Bottom and to close the show another classic Shoot Shoot.
Phil Mogg, powerful voice still intact also had plenty of quality rock
and roll tales to tell including one about UFO posters being replaced by
Blondie posters at a Chrysalis office.
The rest of
the band rocked a storm including plenty of scorching guitar solos by
Vinnie Moore and rock solid drumming by Andy Parker.
A set full
of crowd pleasers and I hope very much they visit the venue again.
