    This from Blabbermouth:

    SAXON: More U.S. Tour Dates Announced - Mar. 9, 2005 British heavy metal legends SAXON have added several dates to their upcoming U.S. tour, which is scheduled to take place early May. The dates will immediately precede the group's European summer festival run, which is scheduled to kick off May 21 at the Schwung Festival in Roeselare, Belgium. So far, the following U.S. dates appear to have been confirmed:

    May 11 - Santa Clara, CA @ The Avalon
    May 12 - Fairfield, CA @ Pepperbellys
    May 15 - Milwaukee, WI @ Shank Hall
    May 16 - Chicago, IL @ House of Blues
    May 19 - West Springfield, VA @ Jaxx

    As previously reported, SAXON recently postponed their previously announced March European tour as a result of the band's frontman Biff Byford suffering a major loss when his house in the Normandie area of France burned down. According to a statement from the band's management, Biff, his wife and their children got out of the house at the very last minute and nobody was hurt. The European tour dates have since been rescheduled for September/October.

    Dont know if this has been posted already:

    http://www.hardrockhouse.com/Old News/February2005/February05.htm or see below.

    Further to the story regarding the cancellation of Saxons UK shows that were planned for March, the band have re-scheduled the dates for October.

    The rearranged schedule is as follows

    Oct 16th - Bradford Rio
    Oct 17th - Dudley JB's
    Oct 18th - Nottingham Rock City
    Oct 19th - Edinburgh Liquid Room

    Support for all shows comes from Brainstorm.

    Oh, and there's also a good review here, as well:
