hello all

i was there so i can give you a short summary:

- crowd: the place was full, don't know about exact numbers but i guess around 1,000 people or so
- Iced earth: terrible sound, particullary at the beginning of the evening, the songs seemed interesting but could not been appreciated because of the sound;
- Saxon: great sound, played a bit too fast and the set-list was too short (a mere one hour and a quarter or so). I did not appreciate some of the old classics because they had been played too fast;
new songs: didn't know the new album but it seems me that Battalions of steel and valley of the kings are good songs, also appreciated live to rock;
guitarists: it seems me that Doug played a lot better than Paul who sometimes was a bit sloppy
Biff: always great frontmen, he forgot most of the lyrics in Ride like thw wind which was played on crowd request!

All in all a good gig but not the best Saxon concert I saw (if i remember correctly it was my seventh saxon gig since 1997)

Cheers

Matteo
