more Saga came, saw and conquered
Denmark. The place where it all began is still the eye of the storm for
Saga - the place where they know the fans still love them and
greet them the same way they did 25 years ago...
the fans are pretty much the same as they were 25 years ago,
just 25 years older and wiser... So the crowd knew what they
wanted, and they got what they wanted. Saga knew how to play the
crowd to perfection and charismatic front man Michael Sadler had
the crowd firmly in his grip from the opening notes of the
opener: "Trust" to the very last few notes of set.
they delivered on stage in between those 2 songs, was sheer
enjoyment for Saga fans - playing all the old classic songs the
crowd requested for along with no less than 5 songs off their
brand new album "Trust" (one of them for the very
first time ever), and everything worked. Maybe with the
exception of "On the Other Side" as the first encore.
has never been better, and the inclusion of new drummer Brian
has given them a heavier and metallic sound,
which I think fits them well. They are still tight as a ducks
ass, and they are still clearly having a lot of fun on stage and
their spirits are high.
still get chicken bumps when I hear "Wind him up",
"On the Loose", "You're not Alone" or "Scratchin'
the Surface", but the 2 songs I and the crowd wanted to
hear were off course: "Don't Be Late" (still one of
the best rock songs ever written!) and "Humble Stance"
- and the band delivered them to perfection.
love Saga, and especially live because they bring such great
energy and pleasure on stage - you have to have witnessed them
live to know what I mean...
one guys, see you soon...
