2010 was an amazing year in terms of concerts, but I didn't catch two bands that are very often on tour: Saxon and Motörhead.
This tour was made to promote their new album, Call To Arms, but also to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Denim & Leather, which they'll play complete at the Sweden Rock Festival.
The band had a powerful sound from the begining, and there was a huge Saxon backdrop on the back.
21 powerful songs in the setlist, that's what I call a quality show! A band that gives people what the want, and a concert totally worth the money.
Another new song, When Doomsday Comes, had an oriental feeling. It made me think of Kashmir from Led Zeppelin. This tune will be part of the sountrack of the British film Hybrid Theory, by James Erskin.
For its 30 year anniversary, the album Denim and Leather was represented by no less than five songs: Princess of the Night, Never Surrender, And the Bands Played On, the title track Denim and Leather and the rare Play It Loud.
Biff made us sing loud during I've Got to Rock (To Stay Alive) and louder during Wheels Of Steel.
In a word, it was a magical evening!
