SAXON bio: Given birth in the heart of the UK music scene, SAXON is England’s finest metal band. As front-runners and leading lights of the ‘70s New Wave of British Heavy Metal, they had eight UK Top 40 albums in the 1980s including four UK Top 10 albums and two Top 5 albums. In the ‘80s SAXON established themselves as one of the biggest metal acts.  With fan-churning hits like "Heavy Metal Thunder", "Rock and Roll Gypsy", "And the Bands Played On", "20,000 Ft.", "Ride Like the Wind", "Motorcycle Man", "747 (Strangers in the Night)", "See the Light Shining", "Frozen Rainbow", "Princess of the Night", "Wheels of Steel", "Denim and Leather", "Crusader", "Rockin' Again" and "Back on the Streets" it is little wonder they have sold more than 15 million albums worldwide.   Saxon won the Metal Hammer Golden God award for 'Best UK band' (2012).  In February 2012, the band announced a new live DVD/CD package entitled Heavy Metal Thunder - Live: Eagles Over Wacken, a compilation of their 2004, 2007 and 2009 performances at the Wacken Open Air.  In December 2012 Heavy Metal Thunder - The Movie saw an international release and was the first Blu-ray release for the band.   With a storming new stomp in their boots and a renewed, lithe swagger to their legendary sound, SAXON has embarked on their Sacrifice and Sin Tour to celebrate the release of their 20th album, Sacrifice.  Don’t miss this special opportunity to see this legendary band up close and personal!

And heavy metal doesn’t get much bigger than Fozzy.  The band is the brainchild of two larger-than-life, trailblazing personalities, shaping their own brand of sonic splendor. Incendiary guitars forge a path for inimitable vocals atop a rhythmic foundation of earth-rattling proportions.  A hard-pounding sound easily recognizable on such notables as “Let the Madness Begin”, “Martyr No More” and “Broken Soul”   Released in 2010 the band’s fourth studio album, Chasing the Grail debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Heatseeker’s chart, showing just how much ground Fozzy has conquered since the release of their first single in 2000.  Having emerged as a worldwide force on the touring circuit they appeared alongside metal’s Big 4 – Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax – at the Knebworth Sonisphere Festival (2011) and were awarded a marquee, show-opening performance at the 2011 Revolver Golden Gods Awards.  Flaunting power metal roots bleeding with progressive style and a classic feel let the madness begin.
