Thumbs up Saxon at bb king's review

Saxon destroyed BB King's!

I met up with a bunch of friends at Smith's bar in NYC around 5 PM several went to BB King's as Saxon was doing a soundcheck and several were lucky enough to see a few members walking to and from and were able to take pics and get stuff signed

We had plenty of beer & shots at the bar....we had friendly faces like Twisted Tony, Deb who flew up for the show, a dude from Chicago as well as a couple from Montreal lots of chat, lots of fun with friends at the meetup and that's what it's all about \m/

I knew there were alot of Saxon fans hungry to see them again as it's been 7 years sonce they played here and it showed when we got into BB King's!

I knew there would be alot of people going to the show....Eddie Trunk announced a day or so earlier that it was close to being SOLDOUT and he was right! I figured many people would show up but when I went in I was blown away and so damn pround that it was because Saxon DESERVED IT! the fans LOVED IT and it showed! both band and fans had a fuckin blast!

Nibbs & Nigel kept looking at each other laughing it up as they were playing which is great to see and I'm glad he's back in the band! he was rock solid and kicking ass behind the kit!

The sound was a bit off early in the set as the bass and drums sounded a bit muffled in a way but not long after that it was corrected and they cranked 1 tune after another! the band was tight! and it was great to hear some new tunes as well as some kick ass classics

The tunes in random order

Battalions Of Steel
Demon Sweeny Todd
Valley Of The Kings
747
Never Surrender
Princess Of The Night

Here are a couple of pics at the bar.





We got inside and they had a kick ass Saxon shirt that I bought and it ONLY cost $20.00 I bought the one I was wearing 7 years ago and paid a whopping $15.00 back then so it's nice that the price was fan friendly.

Live pics

I was mostly on Paul's side which is why there are mostly pics of him.
