Rejuvenated Brit rockers Saxon can’t get enough of the road right now and the NWOBHM legends have already inked in a 12-date 2011 UK headline tour. Biff and the boys blew away the Download masses this summer with a main stage set featuring Wheels Of Steel in its entirety. And with demand for their no-hold-barred metal far outstripping supply the Barnsley mob will be back out in front of British fans next April – with reformed metallers Wolfsbane and rising stars Fury UK in tow.

Saxon will wrap things up on St George’s Day – April 23 – at Shepherd’s Bush Empire and the band will release the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Into The Labyrinth in March. The full list of tour dates is as follows:
