SAXON announce April UK tour dates

SAXON ANNOUNCE ‘SACRIFICE TOUR’ IN SPRING

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.  Tickets go onsale at 9.00am on Friday 2nd November – full details below.

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.”

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.
