UFO TOUR 2019 WILL CONTINUE
Neil Carter joins the band for the late Paul Raymond
On April 13th 2019, the UFO family got the tragic news that our bandmate Paul Raymond had died of a heart attack. It had been just a week since we finished the first leg of our “Last Orders Tour” in the UK. While mourning his loss, sadly we also had to face the reality of what to do with the band. We feel moving forward with the tour is the right thing to do. We all know this is what Paul would have wanted us to do. We are therefore very pleased to announce that our friend and former bandmate Neil Carter has agreed to join us again and take over the keyboards/guitar and vocals slot for the remainder of the tour. Neil was already part of the family between 1981 and 1983, playing on the albums “The Wild, The Willing And The Innocent”, “Mechanix” and “Making Contact”. Before he joined UFO he was in Wild Horses, later he continued his career with Gary Moore. Together with Neil, we will bring our 2019 LAST ORDERS TOUR to a close. We want to make sure that all our amazing fans get a fantastic experience out of it one more time.
Mixed emotions given the circumstances but nonetheless I’m only too pleased to be stepping in and helping UFO finish their final tour. Paul Raymond was an essential part of the band for most of their 50 year career and this is not something I’ve undertaken lightly. I aim to do my very best to respect his memory.
an Bord holt, hat er doch auf einigen meiner favorisierten
UFO Alben seine Finger im Spiel gehabt.
Toller Musiker, der auch mit Gary Moore tolle Arbeit abgeliefert
Jetzt hoffen ich nur noch, dass auch der ein oder andere Track von
"The Wild, the Willing and the Innocent" seinen Weg in die Setlist
Paul Raymond hat mit UFO und MSG Musikgeschichte geschrieben.
