Saxon Announce April Tour
They will be joined on this tour by heavy metal band Wolfsbane and metal band Fury UK.
Saxon will release the long awaited follow up to their current album Into The Labyrinth in March. Their DVD Heavy Metal Thunder was recently nominated for best DVD of the year by Classic Rock Magazine.
The band have had a busy year, which included performing a blinding set at Download, Donington in June, where to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the first Monsters of Rock Show, they played their legendary Wheels of Steel album in it’s entirety for the first time ever.
As is becoming an almost yearly custom for Saxon, they will perform at the 02 Shepherds Bush Empire in London on St. Georges Day, 23rd April, which promises to be a loud, rocking celebration of England’s patron saint’s day.
Biff Byford says – “It will be great to get back on tour in the UK. I think next year we will bring more Marshall’s and get back to audience and band, as one together. Good to see the London show is on St Georges Day – I’m sure there will be lots of flags on stage. See you all soon, keep the faith.”
