A good hard rock band, like someone eating a snowman, must deliver face-melting licks while munching carrots as loudly as possible. Lap up some old-fashioned rock 'n' roll with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get one ticket to witness the classic rock of UFO on Wednesday, May 11, at 8 p.m. at Bourbon Street venue The Quarter (up to a $25 value). Doors open at 7 p.m., but Groupon customers must bring their Groupons to The Quarter between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. that evening to purchase tickets.
The New Orleans–themed Bourbon Street has played host to international and local acts alike, now welcoming England's UFO for a rollicking all-ages show at The Quarter, its 600-capacity venue. Ranked as one of the 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock by Vh1, UFO has enjoyed more than 40 years of successful albums, live shows, and reported but unconfirmed sightings. Hits such as "Too Hot to Handle" and "Doctor Doctor" paved the way for commercial success in the '70s, establishing a hard-rock credibility that carries through to UFO's most recent studio album, The Visitor, released in 2009. Though the lineup has changed over the years, the chemistry of original members Paul Raymond on guitar and keyboard, drummer Andy Parker, and frontman Phil Mogg is reignited by 2003 transplant guitarist Vinnie Moore’s dynamic energy, powerful riffs, and blood kinship to the Norse gods.
