Heavy Metal icons SAXON have been forced to postpone their remaining UK tour dates until February after drummer Nigel Glockler fell ill during the band's tour and had to be hospitalized. Vocalist Biff Byford issued the following update:

“Nigel, our friend and brother, is in the hospital in the U.K. having tests to find a bleed on his brain. He is up and talking but he says he has a ball crushing headache. I will pass all your messages on to Gina, Nigel’s wife, and we all pray that Nige can pull through this! At the moment all shows have been re scheduled to 3/4/5/6/7 of February 2015.”

The band was out on their ‘Warriors of the Road’ tour and only had a handful of dates remaining prior to Nigel's hospitalization. SAXON is celebrating their 35th anniversary with a setlist that includes tracks from the band’s 'Holy Trinity' of albums, Wheels Of Steel, Strong Arm Of The Law and Denim and Leather. SAXON has already announced plans to come to North America next year to play some shows with ARMORED SAINT. So far, the only dates announced include May 8 in New York, May 9 in Worcester, Mass. and West Hollywood, Calif. on May 30. They’ll also ber making an appearance at the 2015 Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio, on May 17.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Nigel, his bandmates and family.

UPDATED

After the first surgery to repair a brain aneurysm was not successful, a second surgery had to be performed. Following the second surgery his wife Gina Glockler issued this update:

“Nigel's surgery went according to plan & (he’s) resting tonight. I hope to post more info as I have it, and hopefully a message from the man himself!!

Thank you all for the support, it really means so much.

Gina, Justin & Madeline”
