Default Saxon/ Priest show wish list

Am really hoping Saxon varies up the set list for the Priest gig in May. I'd like to hear more stuff from Lionheart, Inner Sanctum, Labyrinth, Beast, also maybe some older gems they dont play that much anymore.

Since they just played all of D and L in London I don't care if I don't hear any of that...I love the band, seen 'em every time they tour for the last 5 years, but getting tired of hearing the same old songs...they got too many good ones to ignore.

C'mon Biff and guys, give us some stuff you ain't played in a while!!

I'd love to hear:

Unleash the Beast
Cut out the Disease
State of Grace
Conquistedor
Sweeny Todd
Rock n Roll Gypsy (yea, I know they play this but I ain't heard it a long time!)


What do you lot wish they would play??

Maybe if we shout loud enought they will listen, lol!

I agree. I have never seen them do it live, though. However, it seems it is played rather often, at least in the UK.

Anyway, I hope everybody going will get a fair bit of Saxon before Priest

I agree with everything all of you have said here

BUT;

as we all know Saxon's popularity is on the rise again. This is a great support slot, AT HAMMERSMITH, where whether we like it or not, many of the people will be there for Priest. Saxon will once again be aiming to convert people who perhaps have lost touch with the band and have not seen them for a while.

We have to remember that!! The setlist might get a little stale FOR US sometimes because many of us are lucky enough to go and watch the band on a fairly regular basis.

Bearing that in mind, Saxon have to put themselves first and play what a majority will want to hear and that will be the well known songs and some off the new album. A gig like this demands it.

It's no good them listening to the diehards and ending up playing a set (we might want) but consist of songs no one else has heard of. They will shoot themselves in the foot and that's the last thing we want.

Lets wait for the next tour and then see if we can get them playing a few different songs otherwise all the reviews will be saying things like played well but where was Denim & Leather, a wasted oppurtunity etc

Great point, a show like this almost demands a "greatest hits" type of setlist regardless of how many times the die-hard fans may have heard those songs.

gonna have to respectfully disagree with you Mate.

I think that Priest and Saxon have pretty much the same audience...how many people here are fans of both and go to both shows?

Also, if they are trying to win over whatever "new" fans might be there, or get back old fans who may have lost touch as you say then why not play newer stuff, show them Saxon has been continuing to make new, fantastic music over the last few years and they don't need to rest on their laurels by playing all the old hits that everyone knows. Sure, play the classics like Wheels of Steel, D & L, Princess...but they could lose stuff like Motorcycle Man and easily replace with new stuff.

I think both aruguments are valid, just depends on your viewpoint.

I tend to agree with this point of view - Saxon have continually made good albums in recent years often putting the Priest releases of late into the shade.

So hell yeah play some of the great almost forgotten (already) songs from Lionheart, Inner Sanctum & In to the Labyrinth
