(Classic Rock) Saxon bassist Nibbs Carter has left the band's European tour due to a "family emergency." The NWOBHM icons say in a statement that Carter will miss six shows, with Greek musician Gus Macricostas filling in as his temporary replacement. Macricostas has previously played with Battleroar.

Saxon say: "We know you will all welcome Gus to the Saxon family for the albeit brief run of shows until Nibbs returns." Carter missed Sunday's show in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and will also sit out gigs in Bologna, Milan, Bilbao, Madrid and Barcelona.

In October, Saxon drummer Nigel Glockler was reunited with one of the nurses who helped him recover from life-saving brain surgery. Read more here.
