Saxon Soundcheck For Charity

Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy And Childline Benefit

Saxon who release their new album Call To Arms on 23rd May, embark upon their UK tour on 9th April. The band announced on their website on Monday, that they would invite the first 20 fans to email and get confirmation from them for each show, to come to the venue of their choice and watch the soundcheck. They would be asked to donate £10 cash into the charity box upon arrival. All of the money collected will go Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy and Childline and will be presented to the Charities at the London Shepherds Bush Empire show on St. Georges Day, 23rd April. Most of the places are now taken but Saxon have added a few extra slots in a some of the venues….. so if you want to attend a soundcheck email

Biff Byford said: “If you were lucky enough to get allocated a place, you turn up at the back stage door at 4pm and you must pay £10 cash into the charity box. I think this is a first.”
