SAXON HEADLINE UK TOUR

saxon-5379After crowd-rocking performances at the Golden Gods awards, Sonisphere and Bloodstock, not to mention Biff’s special guest performance with Metallica in Paris in April, Britain’s favourite metallers, SAXON, will headline a 7-date UK tour in November.

Biff and the boys continue to delight their long-standing fans, as well as acquire a loyal following from a whole new generation.

Of their massive resurgence, lead-singer Biff Byford says: “Things are going really well and these shows will be a great end to a fantastic year – and feel free to send us your set list ideas.”

SAXON will be joined by special guests ANVIL and SUIDAKRA. Full details for the November tour are:

SAXON are true heavy metal heroes. Their story is a classic rock’n’roll saga: five friends from the backstreets of Yorkshire setting out to take on the world. The resulting chart glory, band infighting, full-on rock’n’roll excess, ensures their dramatic tale will become part of heavy metal history. A documentary: “Heavy Metal Thunder” is now in production for release in November and can be pre-ordered onwww.saxon747.com. The film features not on only contributions from Saxon past & present, but from the likes of Metallica, Motörhead, Harvey Goldsmith and many more. It will also feature plenty of rare archive material and unseen concert footage.
