Leaders of the new wave of British heavy metal, Saxon, are returning to Belfast and making their Ulster Hall debut on 04 March 2023.
Now in their fourth decade of making music, continuing the tradition that they helped create, Saxon are still a tour de force in heavy metal music. The Band are comprised of members Peter “Biff” Byford (vocals), Paul Quinn & Doug Scarratt (guitars), Nibbs Carter (bass) & Nigel Glockler (drums).
Saxon were the leaders of the 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.
They’ve had numerous singles in the UK, Singles Chart and chart success all over Europe and Japan, as well as success in the United States.
The band tour regularly and have sold more than 13 million albums worldwide. The band celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2019 with the release of the fourth “The Eagle Has Landed” live album – aptly titled “The Eagle Has Landed 40” as well as headline festival dates with the huge “Castles & Eagles” stage set.
Their latest album, Carpe Diem, is set to be released in February 2023, ahead of their Ulster Hall performance in March.
