As previously reported, in the spirit of British pride, SAXON played a special, fan-selected set on April 23rd to celebrate St. George's Day. Supported by SWEET SAVAGE and GIRLSCHOOL, the gig was held at Shepherd's Bush Empire and was dubbed the St. George's Day Massacre. A special t-shirt (see image below) commemorating the event is now available for purchase at THIS location.
The setlist on the night was as follows: 'Princess Of The Night', 'Let Me Feel Your Power', 'Lionheart', 'Never Surrender', 'Iron Wheels', 'Jack Tar', 'The Thin Red Line', 'Witchfinder General', 'Sixth Form Girls' (performed for the first time!), 'I've Got To Rock To Stay Alive', 'Attila The Hun', 'And The Bands Played On', 'Power And The Glory'. The first encore consisted of 'State Of Grace', '747 (Strangers In The Night)', 'Denim And Leather', 'Ashes To Ashes', 'Crusader.'
