Important News!

Wednesday, 10 March 2010

Hey guys,

Sadly we are forced to announce that Nibbs won’t be able to join us on the upcoming tour!

Due to health problems of his wife we all decided that it will be the best for all if he stays with his wife and Family to make sure that she will get well soon.

We still want to do the tour and looking really forward to meeting all the Saxon fans out there - it wouldn't be fair to you to postpone the tour again.

Gladly our friend Yenz Leonhardt (Kingdom Come, Lacrimosa etc.) will jump in for this part of the tour and try to replace Nibbs part as best he can, although Nibbs is irreplaceable to us.

Thanks for your understanding and keep on rockin’.

Hi all out there in ROCKTOPIA !

Saturday, 27 February 2010

Just a quick blog. We have been working on the Heavy Metal Thunder album this week and we’ve decided to include a short film of download 2008. We feel this was such an important event in our recent career that it has to be included.This means the release to those of you who have pre ordered it there will be a delay for a while. After all it’s all about quality not quantity. After seeing all of the DVD last night I think you will love it, so don’t blame Coolhead. It’s my fault wanting to give you the best documentary that we possibly can.

On another matter we have just finished rehearsing for the tour and we will be playing Requiem We Will Remember in memory of our good friend Mick Cox guitarist for Rose Tattoo who went on to the other side recently.

Hi from planet Saxon

Wednesday, 03 February 2010

A bit of news from the hard side.
Unfortunately we will not be playing a saint gorges day concert this year.
Every one feels we have played a lot in the uk two tours last year and they were amazingly successful, there may be some festival shows in the uk but we have no info on these yet.
We are doing festivals across Europe in summer, south America is a possibility and maybe some shows in north America we should know soon.

The riffking champion will be announced in the next couple of days.

That’s all for now.

Keep the faith
