Saxon -- Los Angeles, CA -- September 28th, 2011
Absolutely phenomenal. I will provide a link to my full review on MetalAssault.com when it's up there, but for now here's this.

Biff's voice, the sound, the band's stage presence, the setlist and the crowd were as close to perfect as it could get. GO SEE THIS BAND ON THIS TOUR AT ANY COST BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

Also, for anyone griping over no To Hell and Back Again, the show was so damn amazing that I came out frankly not giving a crap. They were that good.

Good set, looking forward to seeing them on Sunday. I wish they kept "Midnight Rider" and "Fire in the Sky" in the set though.

damn that's a high recommendation!

I need to get my brother to go with me so we can rock OUT

Seen Saxon a dozen or more times, never ever been less than brilliant.....If you ever get a chance go see them, they'll never let you down.

Honestly I'm pretty disappointed in that setlist, but I still have every intention of going to the show. I saw Saxon in '09 in NYC and it was one of the best shows I've ever seen.

Since I've never seen Saxon live before I'll take ANY setlist....but I do like this one! October 8th will be my first Saxon show, counting down the days, can't wait! :rocker:

I"d love to go, but the Toronto show is 19+.

Any word on the Borealis set?

No idea, they might have been playing the downstairs stage. The band that played right before Saxon was MX Machine, who were a ton of fun as well.
