British band UFO coming to St. Charles
After forming in 1969, the British band UFO ruled the music charts in the ’70s with hits like “Lights Out” and “Too Hot To Handle.”
More than 40 years later, the band continues to make new music and tour. UFO will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday at the Arcada Theatre, 105 E. Main St., St. Charles.
Tickets are available at www.oshows.com.
Kane County Chronicle reporter Eric Schelkopf interviewed founding member and drummer Andy Parker about UFO’s latest activities.
Eric Schelkopf: You guys released a new album this year, “Seven Deadly.” Are you going to be playing from a lot of it during the shows?
Andy Parker: Yeah, at least a couple of tracks. We’re still trying to pin singer Phil Mogg down on the set list, which is always fun. He usually drags his feet to the last second.
ES: “Seven Deadly” is your first album since 2009. What did you try to do with this album?
AP: We didn’t have a preconceived concept. It’s not like we are going to try to make an album to appeal to a certain demographic.
