Default Saxon in Nürnberg

After an amazing Saxon gig in Düsseldorf, there I was - Nürnberg Löwensaal. I had a horrible trainride an no sleep but i was feeling brilliant. Me and a fiend of mine stood in front of the Löwensaal 2 1/2 hours omg it was so cold. But we wanted to stand in the front row^^
(I think there were 4 people after about 1 1/2 hours xD)

And hey then I met Goss and another Saxonfan from England, they came together. Well, they wanted to get some beer and they wanted to come back to be in the front row, too

Ok after 2 1/2 hours we finally made it to the front row (and I would have been reeeealy mad if not^^)
The Support band were...let's say .... boring
I thought that Pharao would be a great band with great sound but the songs and the sound wasn't really good :-(
Evidence One were better but they didn't impress me either. But their guitarist was brilliant.

Yeah now it is Saxon time again!!! The show was great and the crowd really loved them. The first 9 songs of their set were exactly the same as in Düsseldorf but the show was much better. It was fantastic! For me the best part of the show was that they played Broken Heroes! I love that song it was great. And after that? We all wanted a fast song of course^^ and which song could be better than ...Heavy Metal Thunder??? Oh my voice was in such a bad shape after that song but who cares. The show must go on and they came back on stage twice. I think they enjoyed this evening, too and I hope Biff keeps the promise to come back to Nürnberg on their next tour.

After the show was over I met Goss again - he didn't make it two the front row - too many beers he told me xD
I hope to see this man again someday :-) brilliant

Great review Midnight Mover,

Remember meeting with you outside the venue as you said a few hours before the gig. Goss and i thought you must be crazy as it was freezing there.

The gig was superb as i am sure that you know, crowd response was excellent, and the band really did seem to be enjoying themselves on stage.
