SAXON, FOZZY Members Comment On North American 'Sacrfice And Sin Tour'

British metal legends SAXON have announced a North American tour which will run from September 12 until October 10. The trek, which will feature support from FOZZY, is a rare treat for SAXON fans as it hits many markets that the band has not visited in some time. The group is touring in support of its critically acclaimed new album, "Sacrifice", but promises to play all of the fan favorites from its 30-plus-year catalog, including tracks like "Denim & Leather", "Wheels Of Steel", "Ride Like The Wind", "Motorcycle Man" and "Heavy Metal Thunder", all of which have cemented the band's legendary status. All videos have over 8 million collective clicks on YouTube and the band has sold over 12 million albums.

North American SAXON fans will also have the option for a rare opportunity to meet-and-greet with the band, a limited number of VIP packages are available at

Comments SAXON's Biff Byford: "We're really glad to anounce a new tour of North America and Canada with the 'Sacrifice' world tour!

"The album has done fantastic around the world!

"We can't wait hit your shores with the SAXON invasion with very special guest FOZZY. It should be a fantastic tour for all metalheads.

"We have been friends with Chris Jericho for years, so there has never been a better time to hook up with FOZZY for a tour that will take us from the East Coast to the West Coast and finally winding up in the Great White North."

Adds FOZZY's Chris Jericho: "After our highly successful U.S. tour last summer on Uproar, we've been chomping at the bit for the right opportunity to return to North America... and now it has arrived!

"To tour with the legendary SAXON is a metal dream come true and the perfect way to satisfy all of our AMAZING fans in the U.S. and Canada and to make tons of new ones in the process.

"Get ready for 'Sacrifice And Sin'...we're gonna tear your heads off and leave you screaming FOZZY, FOZZY, FOZZY!!"

Opening support on the tour will be HALCYON WAY.
