The Details: Saxon is one of the most important and perhaps also prominent of the NWOBHM bands out there in today’s music geography. Their overall impact on the scene and how Metal was to be delivered for many years after their own inception still resonates loudly in the hearts and minds of their worldwide fans. Fronted by Biff Byford, he leads the charge of the Metal forces and will bring their classics to life along with new material from the “Sacrifice” album that was just recently released. They will be joined by Fozzy (featuring Chris Jericho) and Halcyon Way so you know this show is going to be an exciting one. I am absolutely psyched that thanks to the fine folks in the B.B. King Blues Club marketing team, a few lucky PiercingMetal fans are going to get to see the show for free. More on this below.
When and Where: Friday, September 13th 7pm at B.B. King Blues Club (237 West 42nd Street NYC)
To Participate: Interested fans need to give me two solid reasons why Saxon is so important to their own level of Metal appreciation and in there should also outline why this show is so important to see. Simply saying “they rock” or “because they’re awesome” will not do at all, and if the sole reason you are interested in attending is because of Fozzy, well then you need to give me three reasons about that band. Incompletes don’t cut it and I will be selecting a few of the response submissions and replying to them directly. Please be sure to enter your full real name and an email address in case we need to reach you. It also never hurts to subscribe to the comments for the duration of the contest so you know if you won or not. We do not share this information.
Restrictions: All of our PiercingMetal contests are open to any of our interested readers in the NYC and surrounding regions but we do tend to look for new winners first and then those who might not have won more than a single time over the last bunch of offerings. So take a chance and try your luck, you just might be one of the lucky ones who gets to see the show (pardon the Loverboy reference if you caught it). Oh yes, its important to note that Guest or Anonymous submissions while likely approved will not be eligible to win.

Your Metal collection is incomplete if you don’t have any Saxon in the middle of it, so should this be you I am speaking about, at least you have a few handy dandy links to look deeper into.
