UFO have announced their final tour featuring a series of exclusive concerts in summer 2022, with some unique events, including a dress rehearsal, limited to just 80 tickets. The news, shared by the band on September 3, 2021, allows the British rock legends “to bid farewell to its fans in style.”

The band describes the performances “as the grand finale of an unprecedented success story, which began in 1969 and has spanned more than five decades.” The first farewell show is scheduled to take place on June 20 at the Beatbox in Hannover, Germany, where UFO are planning a public rehearsal, with a strictly limited number of only 80 tickets available.

One day later, on June 21, 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 1.

UFO will then play the very last concert of their long career on Oct. 29, 2022 in Athens, Greece, where the band performed its first show featuring current guitarist Vinnie Moore in February 2004. See the full itinerary below.

Singer and band founder Phil Mogg is anticipating this farewell with mixed feelings. “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 lost two of the band’s prominent alumni in 2020. Founding bassist Pete Way died Aug. 14 from injuries he sustained in an auto accident. His death was preceded two months earlier by longtime guitarist Paul Chapman, on June 9.
