||SAXON BACK TO THE UK FOR PRE-CHRISTMAS TOUR WITH HAMMERFALL AS SUPPORT
26th October 2011
Never tired of the road, British Metal veterans Saxon will be returning to the UK for the second time this year with a string of live shows in December.
Saxon are hot on the heels of a US tour in support of their latest acclaimed release 'Call To Arms', where both album and shows replicated the success already enjoyed in the UK with public and critics alike.
"This is probably the best album we've written and recorded in the last 20 years," states Biff Byford unapologetically. "It's the perfect embrace of our past with a great modern edge."

Lead vocalist and main man Biff Byford keeps leading the pack and mesmerizing audiences with his performances, never shy of energy, drive and enthusiasm.
"It doesn't matter if we are playing for 90,000 people or 2000 people, as long as they are there to see us play, we are happy," Biff recently commented.
Paul Quinn and Doug Scarratt on guitars, Nibbs Carter on bass and Nigel Glockler on drums complete the current line-up. Saxon will be playing unforgettable classics and more recent material from 'Call To Arms'.
