    This town rocks
    Ride like the wind
    20.000 ft
    Solid ball of rock
    Dallas 1 p.m.
    The broken heroes
    And the bands played on
    Cut out the disease
    Battle cry

    Thanks Dirk for posting the Nuremberg setlist..the total for the Nuremberg show was 2h 5min to be overcorrect...:)The sound was really good, better than the night before in Munich were they used the Babylon house PA....A bit annoying was the light problem, although it was much severe for Noctorial Rites since they had to do their entire set in the COMPLETE dark!!! Not a single spot on stage worked...Saxon at least had some light during their set, although the eagles right wing was hardly illuminated

    Saxon also had massive problems with one of the guitars (of course, Pauls guitar as usual ...not sure if the problem was really electrical or more "human":lol:) numerous times during the set (Court,Solid ball,Dallas 1pm) and Biff screwed up the lyrics on several of the songs as well...

    Anyway, here's the Munich setlist (20-1-2003) 135min

    Intro
    Heavy metal thunder
    Motorcycle man
    Stiff fit to boogie
    Court of the Crimson king
    Ride like the wind
    Cut out the disease
    The broken heroes
    DOGS OF WAR (Y-E-S!!!)
    20.000 ft
    747 (Strangers in the night)
    Song of evil
    Crusader
    Battle cry
    Drum solo Fritz
    Battle cry(reprise)
    The eagle has landed
    Requiem (We will remember)
    Princess of the night
    Strong arm of the law
    Denim and leather
    Solid ball of rock
    Dallas 1pm
    Wheels of steel

    I'm currently a bit busy, maybe I find an hour over the weekend to post some of the stories from these past two days(Infos about upcoming DVD (you'll see lots of bras given to the band by female american fans ...:) , my afternoon with Doug in downtown Munich and how and why we came back late for the soundcheck (we were stuck in traffic with my car...Biff had to phone up Doug asking where the hell he was!),and lots more...)


    Best from Munich, Germany

    No , probably not...the generator they blew up was the one from the venue itself..:) Biff and the light people were really angry because of the crappy house installation and what miserable equipment the saxon crew had to cope with at the Löwensaal...

    Thanks for that Karsten. Will be interesting to see how much the setlist alters from brussels to London.

    Well, Biff said that the idea of this tour is to change setlists quite a bit for every show they do..."actually, there is no setlist"

    They don't have to promote a new album so they play whatever the crowd wants to hear (although Biff fouls around with the crowd announcing some song from the 80s "as a new song, it's on the HMT album!!"

    It has never been easier to yell for a song for them to play which will actually played then...On the two shows I've been to this happened several times although these were songs that they would have played later in the set anyway.

    But bear with Doug, since there's quite a few older songs that he still doiesn't know how to play...he told me that in the rehearsals he learned to play several of the very first Saxon songs he never ever played before(like Still fit to Boogie)
