NWOBHM greats Saxon and UK heavy rockers UFO recently concluded a round of spring U.S. dates with help from opening act Jared James Nichols. The trip launched in Houston, TX in early March and closed out in Allston, MA just a few days ago. Back-to-back shows in New York City at Time Square’s B.B. King went down on March 29 and 30. Photo coverage from the latter show in NYC can be viewed in this post.
Last year saw the unleashing of a trio of Saxon releases; two boxed sets, Eagles and Dragons and The Vinyl Hoard via Demon Records, and a live album dubbed Let Me Feel Your Power on UDR Music. Next up for the band, they’ll return home to gear up for UK/European summer performances at “Sweden Rock Festival,” “Hellfest,” “Ramblin Man Festival” and “Steelhouse Festival” (get full details).
As for UFO, their latest effort, an LP called A Conspiracy of Stars, came out in 2015 through SPV/Steamhammer. The group will also tour throughout the UK/Europe this summer (get all dates).
