Live review SAXON Boerderij Zoetermeer 09-05-13

Veröffentlicht am 29. Juni 2013 von mwie in Saxon, Heavy Metal, Live Review, News

I have seen Saxon now two times within the last 6 month and they had two great shows in Holland. In Novemer 2012 they played a kind of best of show in the Patronaat in Haarlem. Then they came back in May with the new album called "Sacrifice". The album is a really strong one (the title track was already performed in November) and the live show was even better.

The Boerderij in Zoetermeer is actually a nice venue a little bit outside of Den Haag. The location was almost sold out and Saxon started their show on time. The focus was with six songs on the new CD. But of course combined with classics like "747" and even "Ride like the wind", which they don't play that often live. „Conquistador“ was also including a drum solo from Nigel Glockler. The band played very tight and Biff’s voice was great. The had a perfect sound and the audience reacted entuthiastic. It was a big rock’n’roll party. After 2 hours the started their final song „Princess of the night“ – one of the real classics.

After 37 years in business Saxon doesn't seem to become older, they just get better. If they continue in such a good shape we still can expect a lot of them in the future. If they are around in your town, go there and see them live.
