Biff Byford Cancels Solo Tour Dates

Saxon frontman Biff Byford has announced the cancellation of his solo tour previously scheduled for April & May 2020. The cancellation is mainly due to low ticket sales, which may or may not have been affected by the current Worldwide Covid 19 Virus pandemic.

Biff Byford: "The honest truth is the tickets for the forthcoming tour have just not sold as everyone expected for whatever reason, so we have cancelled the dates as scheduled with a view to hopefully re-visiting at a later date.

"It's sad as I was looking forward to the spoken word & live band show but it's just not to be at this time. I want to thank everyone who bought the album and supported me. Keep the faith and see you on the road with Saxon."

The show was to take an 'evening with' format and will be split into two halves. The first half featured a spoken word show compared by American Comedian and star of VH1 Classic's 'That Metal Show' Don Jamieson, where Don would quiz Biff on all aspects of his life and career.
