The British metal icons Saxon are celebrating a forty year milestone in 2017! That will include an extensive world tour which will bring them right here for us at Alcatraz.

Under the strong leadership of Biff Byford, Saxon almost immediately became the standard bearers of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal flag in the early eighties. And they still remain so today, with 21 studio albums released, and a 22nd one reportedly in the making for an early 2017 release. If you saw their phenomenal performance at Graspop 2016, you’ve witnessed first hand that Saxon is a perfectly oiled metal machine which still captivates their fans after four decades, and having sold more than 15 million albums worldwide!
