Following their blistering performance at Stormin’ in 2014, we are please to have Olver/Dawson Saxon back on the Main Stage in 2017 headlining Friday night.
No other band over the weekend will have a back catalogue of bonafide hits and classics. How could a set featuring gold plated classics Dallas 1pm, Princess of the Night, 747 (Strangers in the Night) and Wheels of Steel possibly fail?
Oliver/Dawson Saxon is an English heavy metal band formed in 1995 by former members of Saxon, guitarist Graham Oliver and bassist Steve Dawson. In 1994, Graham Oliver and Steve Dawson, founding members of Saxon, reunited under the name Son of a Bitch (which had been Saxon’s own name originally, before they became well known) and released Victim You. They performed under various names such as “SAXON-Son of a Bitch tour” and “SAXON-the early years”, before deciding on their current name “Oliver/Dawson Saxon” in 2000. The band has been known by this name ever since.
