Saxon @Vinyl 5/27/15
For a metal band that was formed in 1976, Saxon is still alive and kicking and putting on one of the best live performances even to this day! This is a band that releases an album just about every year or so, and the albums are always excellent. I loved them when the album “Denim and Leather”came out in 1981 but lost touch with their music for many years. I rekindled my love for them again with the album “Metalhead” in 1999. I got every album since then and the entire back catalogue throughout the years. I swore to see them at Wacken Open Air in Germany, because seeing them live in front of 80,000 people was my dream. I made that dream a reality in 2007. Only my first time seeing them was at a surprise free warm up gig in Germany a few days before the festival to about 300 people. That was insane! Then I got to see them in front of 80K a few days after! They just blew my mind. It was the same show, same energy, only with the mighty Eagle behind them at the festival. That was a few years ago, and who knew that I would get to see them a few more times here in Vegas over the last few years…
