Remember my Rocklahoma predictions article from the end of January? Click here if you don't recall. You'll notice I had Saxon on the list. (You'll also notice that I've been dead on so far, eh?) Last night, the English band confirmed for the third annual Rocklahoma. I've never seen Saxon, so I'm pretty excited - but again, this was no surprise. Saxon is also playing South Texas Rock Fest and Rock Gone Wild.
No, Saxon are not Glam. In fact, they are just about as far from it as you can get. Still, they are straight 80s Metal - and that's good enough for me. Their recent live clips are amazing. When I first learned they would be at Rocklahoma for sure, I headed right over to YouTube to check out some songs.
Here's the "Crusader" live at Wacken Open Air. Look at that crowd!
