The band is going ahead with a series of headline dates, despite Motörhead – for whom they were main support – cancelling their UK dates through illness.

Saxon were one of the seminal bands to emerge during the explosion of new wave of British metal during the 1970s.

They went on to become of one Europe’s biggest metal bands and have sold more than 15 million records.

Their classic album, Wheels of Steel, was released in 1980.

They released their 20th album Sacrifice last year.

Saxon play the Roadmender on Monday, November 18.

Tickets cost £22.50 in advance (subject to booking fee).
