#SAGA JUNE 13, 2019
On June 13, 2017, SAGA celebrated their 40 year anniversary by embarking on their “Final Chapter Tour” – which saw the band performing multiple sold-out shows, as they said their farewells to the fans in Europe and North America.
The band had been on a rigorous touring schedule for some years, and this announcement came, as co-founder Jim Crichton opted to step away and recharge.
After being persuaded by their loyal fans to reconsider their decision, the band promised to “close the door, but not lock it”.
Their passion for music stronger than ever, they have since adopted a more deliberate schedule, with bass player Dusty Chesterfield stepping in for Jim Crichton.
With a fresh energy and attitude, SAGA are looking forward to enjoying their time with fans and friends, worldwide.
