    I have only seen Saxon three times so far :erk:
    Wish i could get to see them more often, but its so expensive. The last time i saw them (Bradford 2002) it cost £40 just to get a taxi home :ill: . I haven't been to a rock concert since, and it may be a while until i go to another :cry:

    First time was at the Rainbow in 1980, but I have lost count! I would say probably 30+ times. The highlight was probably seeing them in Brussels. It almost didn't happen though because I came down with chicken pox a week before the gig! But I'm a soldier don't you know! :lol:

    Sammi wants me to say that she has seem them 4 times! Why she couldn't say that herself I don't know!

    Somewhere in the 20+ times I think. I'm generally to be found at the front with pints stacked up on the stage in front of me....

    ... Headbanging is thirsty work.

    I've seen them between 10-15 times (alcohol does that to the memory allegedly !) First gig, Manchester Apollo - Friday 6th September 1985 (cost £5.50 !).

    I've just framed 7 tickets, Rock the Nations tour programme (Signed By Biff, Nige and Quinny) and Nigel Glocklers drum stick (from the last Astoria gig) and if I say so myself, it looks the nuts.

    Cheers, Paxo, mate!

    Come on Sammi - your count ain't going to be taken seriously until you tap it in personally! Just cos Paxo is on the forum all the time doesn't excuse you! Get posting!!

    BTW - Valanx: Once! Thanks for the support and honesty, Mate! You are a Diamond Geezer (if that's the phrase?)!!

    In 86 @ the same venue it was £6

    and

    In 88 @ the same venue it was £6.50 !

    Ever feel like you've been had? :D

    Come on Sammi - your count ain't going to be taken seriously until you tap it in personally! Just cos Paxo is on the forum all the time doesn't excuse you! Get posting!!


    Ooh, you're SO demanding Nightwar! :D The reason I don't come on anymore is 'cos I'm too busy looking after Paxoman...after all, someone has to bring him cups of tea and bites to eat while he spends hours on here, don't they? :lol: I used to be on here all the time in it's "hey day", but now it's got more than it's fair share of "unsavoury types" (present company excepted, the sensible folk amongst us know who I'm talking about), and I can't be mithered replying to idiots who only come on here to wind the true Saxon fans up!

    Anyway, I'll get off my soap box and tell you how many times/where I've seen Saxon! :D

    FOUR times - so I am a mere baby to the Saxon scene too! The first time was at Bolton Albert Halls (why on earth they played there is beyond me - there are far better (small) venues in Central Manchester that would have attracted a bigger crowd), then in Brussels, then the very next day at London Astoria, then the Astoria again on the Lionheart Tour! By now, I should have seen them twice more (in Dudley and Nottingham), but of course, Biff had his terrible news, so that was that :(

    Is that ok for you Nightwar? Am I forgiven? :lol:

    Of course you're forgiven, Sam!! And I apologise for not thinking of your situation!

    After all, Paxo is getting on a bit now, ain't he? He needs looking after as the old bones don't move as well as they used to and he does need those cups of tea and snacks to keep the old ticker going!!
    As mentioned on another thread, the Forum are working on ways to help their elderly Saxon Members. You know - Bus Passes, Meals-On-Wheels, Wheelchair Access to gigs etc...!

    Anyhow, thanks for the Gig info - 4 times is 3 better than me!! You are a true Saxonite!


    Saxonfan - you must have seen the band in a much different way between gigs. I mean - 'Nations' and then 'Unleash'! And well done for the recent fanatic support you gave Biff and Co for KG and LH! Bloody Hell!!
