UFO – 14th February, 1998

This was my first time seeing UFO although I had seen Pete Way in the guise of Waysted in previous years. From memory the tour was a big reunion one with Schenker back in the ranks in what was often deemed as the classic line-up, although the drum seat was occupied by Simon Wright, supporting their recent Walk On Water album. Support band was Dirty Deeds who had some kind of Iron Maiden link I believe and were pretty standard heavy metal fare.
UFO’s set encompassed all the classic titles with a handful from the recent album and was a great show. I have seen them a further two times in 2010 at Edinburgh and on the Last Orders tour of 2019 as well as Schenker doing his Temple Of Rock group.

Footage from tour date at London the week after.
