Saxon was forced to cancel some tour dates scheduled in the first months of the year after the guitarist Paul Quinn announced his retirement from touring. The group took some time to find a replacement and rehearse to make sure everything sounded right.
Now they are already back on the road with the Diamond Head guitarist Brian Tatler occupying Quinn’s post. The group that already has scheduled dates in Europe also announced they return to South American next November.
Quinn was the only member of the group alongside the vocalist Biff Byford that was part of all the band’s studio albums. Their current line-up has Byford (Vocals), Nigel Glocker (Drums), Nibbs Carter (Bass), Doug Scarratt (Guitar) and Brian Tatler (Touring guitarist).
The group will perform in these dates many of their classic songs and also tracks from their latest original studio album “Carpe Diem” (2022).
I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
