Default Could we hear some mid to late 80s Saxon on this UK tour?

I noticed at the South American gigs that Saxon have been playing the likes of Rock n Roll Gypsy, Battle Cry, Rock The Nation, Ride Like The Wind

Is there any chance us fans in the UK could hear some of these songs that Saxon haven't played here for a while? Its always a joy to hear rare gems!

Played Rock and roll Gypsy in Milan and wait for it Rock the Nations in Oxford last night

I agree with your point Bosnian as there are some greatly under rated songs from that era, I would love the set list mixed up even more.

All I can say is Biff did do the usual what do you want to hear, last nights choice was Broken Heroes or Eagle has Landed - Eagle won! My preference would have been Broken Heroes so make sure you shout for what you want and keep everything crossed.

If Saxon were to play every song that everyone liked we are looking at a 10 hour set hahahah, now what could be wrong with that, as Biff would say "you are not getting tired are ya?" Fingers was correct, two choices were made and Eagle won, obviously London will be different as Denim is going to be played....maybe on the next tour, Biff and Co could let us do a voting system as see what songs would like to be played....
