Saxon drummer Nigel Glockler is making progress every day after emergency brain surgery earlier this month, his wife Gina has said.
But in an update Gina says: “Nigel is getting better each day, and I’m hoping he can be released some time next week.
“There are certain things the doctors like to watch for, so they’re being cautious, which is fine by me. My first and only thought right now is for his recovery.”
She adds: “The long-term prognosis is excellent, and they say he’ll be back behind HMS Glockler when he is fully recovered.”
Saxon previously announced rescheduled dates for the tour, featuring tracks from their ‘holy trinity’ of 80s albums – Wheels Of Steel, Strong Arm Of The Law and Denim And Leather:
Feb 03: Newcastle Academy
Feb 04: Nottingham Rock City
Feb 05: Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall
Feb 06: Oxford Academy
Feb 07: London Shepherds Bush Empire
