Saxon drummer Nigel Glockler had a large part of his nose bitten off by a dog in a pub on Friday night but it was successfully reattached. Writing on Facebook he said:

I was at the pub last night, petting a dog when it decided it did not like my face and took off half my nose. I’ve had over 100 stitches inside and out of the nose and it’s been reattached.

Gina says between this and the scar on my scalp I should change my name to FrankenNigel.

The good news is no problems for the upcoming shows – see you soon!

The scar on his scalp is from a brain aneurysm suffered in 2014 and the subsequent surgeries.

Saxon’s upcoming dates are as follows:

Nov 08: Bath Forum, UK
Nov 09: Hafan y Môr Hard Rock Hell, UK
Nov 10: Nottingham Royal Concert Hall, UK
Nov 11: Newcastle City Hall, UK
Dec 08: Geiselwind Christmas Bash Festival, Germany
