Default Saxon fans send us your ideas!

As we are winding down the European Festival season, it is time to begin preparations for our upcoming tour of US & Canada together with Fozzy this September. We would like You, The Fans to choose a set list for the North American tour which means 12 songs plus 4 taken from the Sacrifice album, fans around the world are invited to take part but, we want to hear specifically from the North American fans who will attend the shows.

There will be prizes for the best three set list suggestions, who will each win a copy of the new Sacrifice album T-shirt. And for the Grand Prize winner; *a VIP package, Sacrifice album CD and a T-shirt. Prizes will be available to pick up at one of the shows of your choice.

Post your list on the Saxon747 site or on Facebook.


Keep the faith
Biff

Default Sailing To America

Thanks for the opportunity for fans to make a set list. Also thanks for playing 4 songs from Sacrifice.

At this time I only want to request SAILING TO AMERICA to be included in the set list. I hope other fans want to hear it too.

Hmm, this will be a tough one, I'll have to give this some good thought.....there's no deadline listed so I assume I have some time to think this over

PS: This is a GREAT idea, thanks so much Biff for giving your North American fans a voice like this.

Is not! You should post some of your stalker photos from the cruise. There is a gig review section here. So it was 2 1/2 years ago, so what.

Default Saxon USA Milwaukee Setlist

It's great that Saxon is having this contest. I've thought long and hard about the appropriate setlist for SAXON in the USA. It was very challenging to pick 16 songs (4 off Sacrifice and 12 others) from Saxon's vast catalogue.

Here are the 16 songs I think will serve Saxon the best in appeasing to the 'old' fans, as well as the 'newer' fans...and to WIN OVER MORE FANS! I didn't pick my favorite 16, but rather the 16 that I think are best to showcase the greatness of Saxon.

I think Saxon should play one additional song from their 2000 and later cd releases; 2 songs from the 90s; and the remaining 9 from prior to 1990, with one 'hidden nugget/surprise' song that Saxon doesn't typically play.

Note: this is in no particular order, because I don't want to know their actual songlist (if they pick my setlist lol )

1. Sacrifice
2. Warriors of the Road
3. Stand Up and Fight
4. Wheels of Terror

5. Unleash the Beast
6. Forever Free

7. Wheels of Steel
8. Heavy Metal Thunder
9. Princess of the Night
10. Denim and Leather
11. The Eagle Has Landed
12. Rock N Roll Gypsy (this received radio airplay in Milwaukee)
13. Lionheart (2000 and later era song)
14. Power and the Glory
15. Strong Arm of the Law
16. Just Let me Rock (hidden nugget, received radio airplay in Milwaukee)

Zoy

This was an incredibly difficult setlist to write! Another 4 or 5 songs would've made this a little easier as it was difficult to 'axe' favourites from the shortlist.

1) Sacrifice
2) To Hell and Back Again
3) Wheels of Terror
4) Sixth Form Girls
5) Stallions of the Highway
6) Hammer of the Gods
7) Warriors of the Road
8) Battalions of Steel
9) Stand Up and Fight
10) Dogs of War
11) Dallas 1PM
12) If I Was You
13) 747
14) Crusader
