Saxon and Black Star Riders at The Grove of Anaheim

words + photos by Joe Cortez

Direct from the UK, metal legends Saxon descended upon The Grove in Anaheim on Friday night, April 20 for a memorable night of tunes spanning the band's four decade long career as one of the most influential acts in rock. Currently on tour in support of the band's 22nd studio album, "Thunderbolt," the band is currently scheduled to wrap up a tour of the US with Judas Priest before heading to South America and Europe for dates throughout the remainder of 2018.

Check out my photos from the night, also featuring co-headliner Black Star Riders and opener Lovedrive, below. For more on Saxon be sure to visit
