Longest set of the tour so far for Saxon - it was the first time they played The Thin Red Line, Night of the Wolf, Broken Heroes, or And the Bands Played On so far on this tour. Thin Red Line was an especially nice surprise, as I'm always lobbying for them to play more material from the 1997-2005-ish period. Still nothing from Lionheart, but it's something.

All in all was a great experience. Due to a touring bill of Saxon, Fozzy, and Halcyon Way plus one other local support, we had to go on very early, but the turnout was decent, and we ended up selling a lot of merchandise and winning a bunch of new fans over. Was also great to see Saxon again and see all the guys again as well, they never disappoint. Biff even gave us a shout out onstage, which was rather nice!

Now that's more like it. Fuck yeah for Thin Red Line too! Expect me to be the dumb fool screaming for Unleash the Beast at the LA show.

That MindMaze set sucks! Too much new stuff. The old EP stuff is the best! ;)
