UFO & Saxon going on spring U.S. tour (coming to NYC)

Saxon live at B.B. King in 2013…

UFO and fellow English heavy rockers Saxon have confirmed a U.S. tour together for this March/April with help from special guest support, Jared James Nichols. The 16-date crusade kicks off in Texas and heads our way towards the end of the run for a pair of shows at NYC’s B.B. King on March 29 & 30 [tix go on sale 10/14]. All announced tour dates can be viewed below.

UFO are touring in support of their 21st studio album A Conspiracy of Stars, which they dropped last year through SPV/Steamhammer — the guys are also in the process of working on a brand new record (stay tuned). Meanwhile, Saxon are hitting the road in favor of their 2015 effort, Battering Ram, via UDR Music — as well as their impending double live album, Let Me Feel Your Power, coming out 10/28.
