Heavy metal legends SAXON have announced via their official Facebook page, that English metallers HELL will be supporting them on their UK 35th Anniversary Tour. Check out the statement below:
“We are happy to announce that Hell will be part of Saxon’s 35th Anniversary Tour through UK where Saxon feature all hits from the Holy Trinity „Wheels Of Steel“, „Strong Arm Of The Law!“ and “Denim & Leather“. Hell’s progressive music style incorporates elements of thrash, symphonic, gothic, speed, doom and black metal with a great variety and will be a great add on to Saxons live performance!
Saxon will also do again the special meet & greet VIP package. Infos will follow soon!
Keep The Faith!
World renowned guitarist and producer, Mr Andy Sneap shares his delight on the announcement;
‘It’s a great honour to announce that HELL will be main support to the mighty Saxon on their UK run of dates throughout December.
Having recently worked with the guys on Sacrifice, Unplugged and Strung Up and St Georges Day – Live in Manchester, we have often talked about the chance of both bands playing together . I think I can safely say that Saxon played a huge part in all our musical upbringing, I personally first saw them back in 83 on The Eagle Has Landed tour so, to now get the chance to go out around the uk as special guests is absolutely fantastic and a great chance to bring the theatrics of our latest album Curse and Chapter into the live domain.’
