Saxon have been forced to cancel their remaining 2019 shows.

Vocalist Biff Byford has been diagnosed with a heart condition that requires immediate surgery.

Biff : “As everyone knows now, we are going to have to reschedule some of the shows because I need an operation on my heart which should be happening next week. There is nothing more I can say, really. I am just sorry for causing all the disappointment to people’s plans for coming to see us. I know people are flying from all over the world to see the shows, but there is nothing I can do, so please wish me luck and send me some good vibes. We have to look positive on this and I will be coming back as strong as before, hopefully.”
