Nigel Glockler, drummer with British NWOBHM legends SAXON, has announced via his official Facebook page, that due to his move from the UK to the USA, he will have to miss the last two shows in Germany on the band’s current world tour. Nigel‘s last show this year is in Helsinki tonight (6th December). He stated:
“Good Morning from Helsinki!
As many of you are aware, the wife and I have been planning our move the USA for about a year – with things like a hospital stay and tours delaying this!
It was finally sorted and scheduled for this week – these dates cannot be changed so it means unfortunately I will not be at the rescheduled dates for Hamburg and Berlin. ( 9th & 11th December.)
My good friend Sven Dirkschneider of U.D.O. will be back behind HMS Glockler for me at these 2 gigs, but I will be back for the 2nd half of the tour when it picks back up in January.
SAXON continue their tour in 2016, starting in the UK on 24th January in Glasgow. For the full list of dates check here.
