    Surely their final concert should be in their homeland!

    That's nice, but I expect it to be extended to the states. Then Europe again. Then the states again. Etc etc etc. As long as whoever is left is healthy enough they will keep playing since (1) it is all about the $$ really and (2) they probably NEED the $$, and (3) most bands who have been roaddogs that long can't live without that adrenalin road rush.

    You know, these Farewell tours are getting a little boring. It's just a marketing term they're using at this point, isn't it? I've nothing against UFO, they're far from the only people doing it, but they're beginning to come across as fake ways to have a long tour and then rest.

    How so? The tour was cancelled because of the same reason every other tour was and now it resumes....

    It's still yet another "Farewell" concert. But your point is taken.

    It's unfair to begrudge a band from having a farewell tour after over 50 years as a functioning band. However if they do what so many other bands do and keep going then all criticisms are deserved!

    Isn't this just them finishing off the tour they were on before Covid came along ? It's not a new farewell tour on top of what was already happening.

    Let's not derail the thread with this one. I remember times when bands simply stopped touring without all the fanfair and marketing of the occasion. All bands will eventually break up or end, it's part of the lifecycle. These days - when farewell tours can mean literally YEARS of dates, it's all a bit passe. IMO. But don't let it disrupt you guys chatting about it.

    I'd love to catch them on these final dates but alas I'm locked in a country and will probably never be allowed out again so I guess Spain 2019 will be my lasting memory of one of my favorite bands.

    kevin5brown Analog or bust.

    The Aussie and New Zealand governments handle it ... oddly, imo. ;)

    Understatement of the century. They are psychopaths.

    If it's truly a farewell tour they need Schenker.

    More likely they'd be able to bring Pete Way & Paul Raymond back from the dead to join them than get Michael (dead or alive).

    Not really - he played on less than half their studio albums.

    I’d really love to see them. Saw em with Saxon on a recent tour. So great. Really turned me on to Vinnie and cool new stuff. Excited. Such a great band

    No, it is really a cancelation of the remaining US dates that were TBA, and then a bunch of German dates in their place. They never hit the US West Coast on this farewell thing where they have a huge following. I'm a bit disappointed, but as someone said, this might not be all of it.

    OK I suppose if you are a UFO fan living in Germany.

    A small part of my disappointment is that I have the original SITN promo poster signed by the classic band all except Moog and Parker who were in that last recent touring line-up. I wanted the last two autographs needed to complete it. I'm an autograph nut, just love them - some here on the forums may have noticed. That poster would be so cool to have with all five signatures.

    True, but their live show is mostly Schenker era material.

    I could be mistaken but I thought Parker has retired from touring etc (although Mogg announced that he had but then changed his mind, or something changed, and came back/kept going).

    I know Oz has had some really tough measures, but one of these looks “psychopathic” alright, and it ain’t you guys.

    Didn’t the Scorpions announce their farewell tour in about 2012? They’re still touring!
    Must be the longest goodbye ever.
    I love Scorpions by the way. Great band.

    Surely the only venue for the final UFO concert should be the legendary Hammersmith Odeon or whatever it is called this week.
