Saxon Checks In With Tour Dates Recap

Saxon's Biff Byford has checked in with the following recap of recent shows and announcement about upcoming tour dates:

"Just got back from Japan. The shows in Spain with Priest were fantastic. Great audience and good to meet them again and Motörhead. Shows in Tokyo were special. First band there after earthquake so they said great atmosphere and we spent some time at the meet and greet.

"We are announcing further shows soon which will make this tour the longest for many years I think. It will be around 150 days since March all around the world. I am working on setting more charity meet and greets will be talking to the promoters when dates get confirmed. So off for a well earned rest and a curry, next show Poland and then holidays. Keep the faith.

"P.S. Some people are talking of reunions. I can tell you all now while ever ex members are living in the past and pretending to be in Saxon at every opportunity there will be no reunion. As I have said before: we allowed them to use Oliver Dawson Saxon so they could earn money but they are not allowed to do anything else.

"I know all of you do not like the fact that they can use this name but if they cross the line too far we will enforce our high court injunction. After all we did allow them to appear on the heavy metal thunder live DVD which was done for the fans as it should be. Saxon is on a fantastic journey at the moment and we have a great legacy of music but that includes all our music not just parts of it."
