Brighton 23 January 2016
 
Great show at a small venue in Brighton, UK. Had a good drink in the pub before the show with Midnightrider, Northernlady, Simon, Martin and Dave and it was also nice to manage a quick chat with Doug in the venue bar just before he went on stage. He seemed really happy to be playing a show in his home town :) Nice touch from Biff dedicating "We will Remember" to Lemmy.

Thanks for sharing, Neil.Glad to see you all had a great time.:)
Very good setlist, old and new songs.:D
And yes, I expected they will play "We Will Remember" for Lemmy.
In 2010 I saw Saxon and they played it for Ronnie James Dio.
Thatīs a nice guesture of them and a really great song to honour those who unforunately passed to the other side.

Yes, I was very pleased they played this. Biff said it was the first time they have ever played it live :)

Yes it was a great night Renate and we all had a brilliant time :)
I must admit I was quite emotional when "we will remember" was played in tribute to Lemmy.

Can't believe we have now lost Jimmy Bain as well :(

This was just before Saxon came on stage. There were cameras filming so hopefully a DVD of the show may be released in the future :)

That's a hell of a set. Love seeing new songs in the list. Hammer Of The Gods could take the place of one of the oldies?? :D

That would be great, to have another Saxon DVD and see the Forum members on it. ;)

Jimmy Bain R.I.P. Yes of course this is very, very sad :(, not a god beginning of the new year concerning this.
