Saxon will play a headlining show this Friday night (March 16) at The Chance in Poughkeepsie at 7pm.

Saxon are supporting Judas Priest on their Firepower 2018 tour which kicks off this week in Wilkes-Barre, PA and will play a headlining show Friday at The Chance (an off night of the Judas Priest tour). Saxon led by singer Biff Byford formed in 1977 out of South Yorkshire, England and were one of the leaders of the new wave of British heavy metal. The band had success in the U.K. and the U.S. in the 1980's and influenced bands like Metallica, Motley Crue, and Pantera. Saxon released the popular album Denim and Leather in 1981 and the title track is regarded as a metal anthem. The band's latest album (their 22nd album) Thunderbolt was released on Feb. 2, 2018.
