UFO & Saxon announce more U.S. dates together (performing in LI)

UFO live at B.B. King earlier this spring…

UK heavy rock unit UFO and NWOBHM legends Saxon will once again hook up with Jared James Nichols for a round of USA and Canadian dates as part of their ‘British Invasion’ trek.

The outing goes down in September and October, hitting 18 markets including Long Island, NY at The Paramount on Sept. 23 [TIX go on sale 5/12].

Regarding the new dates, UFO lead singer Phil Mogg declared:

Seldom do you get the chance to have a tour with such great bands and great personalities. We have been offered such a chance and will be grabbing it with both hands. We are looking forward very much to our autumn tour with the lads from SAXON, Biff, Paul, Doug, Nigel, and Nibbs, Jared James, Eric & Dennis, just so you know every one. I hope you enjoy these gigs as much as we will, rocking/kicking, your proverbial arse/bottom. Love UFO.

Saxon‘s Biff Byford added:

It’s great to be coming back with UFO, we had such a great time on the last tour – it’s a great package with three great bands, what’s not to like BRING IT ON !!!!!
