Never tired of the road, Saxon announce the UK leg of their Sacrifice World Tour in support of the upcoming album of the same name. The New Wave of British Heavy Metal legends will play 9 dates in April 2013 and they can’t wait to share their new material on stage.

Throughout the years, Saxon have been touring relentlessly and earning an excellent reputation for the quality and energy of their performances. This is documented in their ‘Heavy Metal Thunder – The Movie’, which is released on 7th December. As UK fans await ‘Sacrifice’ with the same anticipation reserved for Saxon’s previous work, they know the spring shows will be - as always - a treat not to be missed.

Biff Byford says “People have been asking me if this is going to be our last album and tour - we don’t know yet we’ll see how it goes.”  
Saxon - "Sacrifice World Tour 2013"

18.04.2013   UK   Leamington Spa - Assembly

After more than 35 years and 13 million albums sold worldwide, Saxon are still relentless and passionate as they were back in the days of ‘Wheels of Steel’ and ‘Denim and Leather’. The influential heavy metal outfit has been an inspiration for the likes of Metallica and Megadeth and a front-runner for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal sweeping the nation in the late 70s-early 80s.  New Studio album ‘Sacrifice’ out on February 25th, will be album number 20 in their stellar career, and fans are as excited as they were when Saxon first made their initial impact on the metal scene.

As we promised: Here is the next big one!

Saxon is headlining the Rock Stage at Sweden Rock Festival next year! Not only that but as said before we will be able to bring the "Heavy Metal Thunder" Production and give the Swedish a show they have never ever seen before!!!
We are looking forward to come back to one of the greatest festivals in the world!

On another hand we got multiple questions re our postponed gig in Hatfield. After we tried several times to tie this gig in some of our live plans and haven't been successful we decided to let this gig go. Everybody of you who bought a ticket will be refunded by your ticket master. We promise you to try and to find another option for Hatfield some day next year but we couldn't take the responsibility to let you wait any longer.

Keep the faith!

Hi everybody!

Saxon has never been a lazy band and especially this year we have been extremely busy! After we played several festivals all across Europe and some great gigs together with Judas Priest and the very first Hamburg Metal Days - we have almost finished the new album. The mix is done and the mastering is almost finished. We have guys who are right now putting the last details together and working bits and pieces out for the artwork. Watch out for further news releases like album cover, track list, some more behind the scenes info etc.

Since most of album production work is done, the band can’t keep their feet still and have decided to play a very short Christmas run of 3 dates:

07.12.2012  CH   Bern - Metal Christmas Festival
08.12.2012  NL   Haarlem - Patronaat
09.12.2012  NL   Roermund - ECI

We are looking forward to sharing the stage in Switzerland with our mates from Motörhead and Edguy and on the two Dutch shows we will be accompanied by Crimes Of Passion.
Everybody that comes to our two headliner shows will get little Christmas surprise and we will spoil you with at least one new song from the new album which we will perform live!

After that, the promotion machine starts; pre-listening sessions for journalists, interviews and, and, and…

So keep your eyes open because soon you will see the media full of new Saxon stuff!

Keep the faith!
