Default Saxon in Zaragoza, Sunday 21st June 2009, Metal-fucking-way

Every year in Zaragoza there is something that prevents us from seeing bands...

Last year we could not see Purple, SAXON and Twisted Sister because of the heavy rain; this year we could not see Fear Factory (never mind) or Heaven and Hell, as Toni Iommi got a pain in his back and was taken to hospital in an ambulance right before the gig!!!

Besides, we were told that Saxon would use again the famous eagle with lights as in the past, but the wind did not allow this to happen: the eagle hanging would have represented a big risk. Even the screens were at floor level because of the wind. In Zaragoza, it is called "cierzo", and the most repeated phrase of the festival was: PUTO CIERZOOOOOO.

Anyway, a few pics, not too good, as always, but there you go...

Wow, it does look windy. It probably kept the guys cool though. Isn't Zaragoza in Spain?

What a kickin ass concert Saxon played in Zaragoza`s Metalway Festival. Thanks once more for beeing the most proffesional band on stage. As Biff said: "Shit happens" (he was talking about Heaven & Hell cancellation). Let me change this sentece: "Shit happens, but here comes Saxon with grande cojone". Great gig, great set. Awesome Demon Sweeny Todd.

I was very proud for wearing once more my black Lionsheart tshirt.
