Saxon payed tribute to Motorhead during “They Played Rock and Roll” Then nostalgia kicks in with “The Bands Played On” and “747 Strangers in the Night”, before “Crusader” and “Princess Of The Night” closed the set proper.  There was no way the night was going to end there, so back they come for “Heavy Metal Thunder”, and “Wheels of Steel”, before a tumultuous version of “Denim and Leather” pounded the crowd into submission and sent us on our way.
Saxon can certainly show many of the current crop of bands how to deliver an immense concert, crammed with a variety of new and classic tracks, with a clear sense of relish and excitement in their performance.
