Following a number of tours around the globe and countless spectacular shows, British rock legend UFO will embark on its final tour featuring a series of exclusive concerts in summer 2022 to bid farewell to its fans in style. At the grand finale of an unprecedented success story, which began in 1969 and has spanned more than five decades, the band has announced a number of real highlights: The first one is scheduled to take place on June 20th at the Beatbox in Hannover, where UFO are planning a public rehearsal, with a strictly limited number of only 80 tickets available.

One day later, on June 21st, the band will perform a private open-air concert in front of an audience of 300, presenting the full set-list of the subsequent tour, and coming into exceptionally close contact with their fans. Tickets for both concerts will be available exclusively from Eventim from October 1st.

UFO will then play the very last concert of their long career on October 29th Athens, Greece, where the band performed its first show featuring current guitarist Vinnie Moore in February 2004.

Singer and band founder Phil Mogg is anticipating this very special farewell show with mixed feelings, while also very much looking forward to UFO once again meeting their extensive fan base between summer and autumn 2022.

Mogg, who turned 73 in April, said, “After so many years with countless highlights, fantastic experiences and lots of beautiful memories — as well as some difficult moments, naturally — it’ll be a worthy finale to say goodbye to your fans in person. I know that there are bound to be some very emotional moments on both sides.”

    UFO with Michael schenker was truly anamazing band ! I still listen to that era of the band weekly , no other guitarist could really match what schenker could do , they reunited with him mid 90s and recorded venus I love that song!
    When you hit your 70s I understand when enough is enough UFO should be in the HOF
    They have influenced so many.. I hope schenker makes a special appearance on this last go round he really should ~

      My first UFO concert was in 1995 when they reunited with Schenker for the Walk On Water tour.
      Got to meet Michael pre-show as he’d sign his Thank You CD-single if purchased there.
      Unbelievable show, it was pretty much Strangers In The Night plus a few of the new songs.
      Seen them again around 2006 with Vinny & Jason Bonhan in the band.
      Finally, seen them Valentines day 2020 right before the covid pandemic shut everything down. We did the meet & greet after the show, got autographs and pictures, a night I’ll never forget!
      What a great band, definitely one of my top 5 of all-time!

      I saw that show at Limelight in the city, Eddie was there, too. But, I did not know him then…My memory stinks, but I am sure I enjoyed it.

    Along with Eddie…this is my favorite band….and along with Eddie…Love to Love is my favorite song….it was played at my Wedding and will be played at my Funeral ( although at 62 , I hope I have a few morel left in me. )…this band has been in my life since I was 14 years old and picked up the LP Phenomenon at a local record store… I will be in Germany also ….

      Brad this was my favorite band along with kiss until schenker left – I’m jealous you will see them in Germany, if schenker shows up I was thinking that’s where it would happen- I hope you have a great time!!!

      I had never even heard of UFO, until my first love, Marc, picked me up one day, and was blasting Obsession in the car. When I inquired who it was he said “Michael Schenker’s band before he went solo, UFO.” I know he worshipped Schenker, along with Rhoads, and because of him, I LOVE Obsession. Pack It Up and Go, Hot N’ Ready, You Don’t Fool Me, Cherry, One More The Rodeo….Great album. Lights Out is also good.

    Heard Scorpions first as a kid and saw Schenker was in a band called UFO and got strangers in the night , Lights out , no heavy petting, obesseion and the others
