Presented by the Uriah Heep Holland Promotion Team: Jan Hoogland | Erik van
Loenhout | Evert Achterberg | Leo & Monique Spruit | Marcel Wigmans | Kees
Stroo Cloeck | Louis Rentrop | in association with the promoters of the
three venues. Chappoo to all!!! We are very happy to announce that the
"Biggest Heep Fan 2003" Yumiko Nakajima will attend all three gigs. A
chance for us the congratulate her one more time with the most wanted title
a Heep fan ever can be awarded with. Two of the three gigs will be
attended by a US soldier (and big Heep fan of course!) currently based in
Baghdad, Iraq. What to say eh? Amazing or what...
1) The "Heep In" in Boerderij on February 6th 2004

Joost Dingenouts, the huge Heep fan who passed away on October 9th, will
travel in our bus to Zoetermeer. 30 to 40 relatives will attend the gig in
Joost's homage. The Heep Bus will stop in Bergen op Zoom - Roosendaal
-Standaarbuiten - Zoetermeer. There are a few places left. The tickets

The classic rock band Fastfinger including the diehard Heep fan Erik van
Loenhout on drums will cheer us up at the pre-gig party (details on the
link above). "Look At Yourself" and "Time of Revelation" are on the setlist.
Are you from the UK, living near London?
The Sunday Feb 8th gig is pretty close to the Eindhoven airport. For 150
GBP (all included) you have a round-trip ticket by Ryanair
(www.ryanair.com). We are happy to help you on hotels and transports. You
get a great pre-gig party, the Heep gig itself, and after-gig party.... well??

- "Classic Heep" double DVD is going fast, so if you want to secure a copy
you'd better run!!!
To order it:
http://www.classicrockproductions.com/storen/uriahheep/clheep.html .
Since a lot of people have been asking about which version to buy (NTSC or
PAL), here we have some info about this...
PAL and NTSC - What's the difference ?
PAL is standard for Europe, Australia, NZ and Africa.
NTSC is standard for North and South America, the Far East and Japan.
The TV standard for the region you live in will either generate a picture
from 525 Lines (NTSC) or 625 Lines (PAL). For that reason your DVD player
needs to generate a picture your TV monitor can decode. So if you live in
North / South America or Japan you will have an NTSC telly you need to
order NTSC DVD discs. These days many DVD systems sold in Europe are dual
standard and will happily detect and playback either NTSC and PAL so it's
increasingly less important to have PAL disc in Europe as virtually every
player and TV set will automatically recognize and play back NTSC. Older
players may require some adjustments and very old tellies will only play
PAL. However PAL pictures have more information and give a much better
quality so if you live in Europe always buy the PAL disc. American and
Japanese sets tend to play just NTSC so always order NTSC if you live in
those regions.
