RushOnRock were there, and here`s their review:
"Their meaty, singalong, no frills metal is guaranteed to get the party started and Saxon fans know exactly what they’re getting for their money: the anthems, the attitude and the answer to why the NWOBHM continues to exert such influence on generation after generation of wannabe performers.
Byford has cannily honed the art of delivery to reflect his advancing years and if the face looks a little more craggy, the hair a little limper and the limbs just a touch less agile then the voice is still powerful enough to pack a mighty metal punch. Limiting his stagecraft to the odd wave of the arm and pirouette around the mic stand, Saxon’s irrepressible frontman concentrates every last ounce of energy into belting out the big hits."
