- Uriah Heep will play a charity gig on October 13th in Broadstairs, Kent, UK for the Macmillan Cancer Support. Now sold out! Also just announced is a gig in Norway on October 21st. After that it will be time for the total Heepsteria acoustic tour during November and December!

- To promote the Dutch gigs on November 8 & 9, the http://www.rockpromotion.nl  site is giving two copies of Heep's "Live Broadcasts" DVD away. Just need to answer which is the title of the latest Uriah Heep studio album. More prizes, like the "Chapter and Verse" boxset, will be added to the raffle later on. The Heep Holland Promotion Team will set up a "Heep In" meeting before the November 9th gig in Geleen. More news soon!

- Now confirmed: Sanctuary Records will release Uriah Heep's "Easy Livin': The Singles A's & B's" double anthology CD on 30/10/2006.

- Back in 1993 the then very famous Norwegian band AHA used to play live a segment of "Easy Livin'". You can watch it here (after 35 seconds): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geZkPbyuze4&NR  . Thanks to Evert Achterberg for the tip.

- Of course we want Uriah Heep back in Arrow Rock Festival in 2007. So, please go to http://www.rentrock.nl/arrow2006/poll2007.htm  and vote for Uriah Heep! Arrow Rock Radio compiles several polls. Uriah Heep have been going well over the years, let's go for it again. Check this page out and vote: http://www.arrow.nl/rock/index.php/content/blogcategory/47/100/  .

- On the Brazilian prestigious website "Rock Press" a huge article with several curiosities about Uriah Heep's whole career was recently published (in Portuguese only): http://www.rockpress.com.br/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=914  . And on the "Poeira Zine" magazine ( http://www.poeirazine.com ), an article about the "Demons And Wizards" cover was published.

- Besides that, lots of articles were published before and during Uriah Heep's visit to South America! Here's some links:

- On the YouTube site ( http://www.youtube.com ) several video excerpts from the recent Brazilian gigs can now be found. Just look for "Uriah Heep Brasilia" and "Uriah Heep São Paulo" there! Even a jam at the VIPs cocktail party that followed the press conference in São Paulo is available: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ub5uFdiI1n4  (worth checking: the instruments, borrowed from the local band; and roadie Dave Owen's fancy hat!). By the way, at the press conference (that lasted for over 1.5 hour!), Mick Box stated that the new studio album will be partly recorded now and partly in the beginning of 2007, and then released next year!

- "Easy Livin'" gets a lot of airplay in Finland at the moment. It is a theme song for the new movie called "Riisuttu mies" ("Naked Man" or "Stripped Down Man" in English). The film is the most talked about in Finland in 2006 and it looks like it's going to be one of the best selling also. It premiered two weeks ago and it's at number 3 in ticket sales at the moment, actually the most popular film with real actors because it's behind two animated films: "Cars" and "Over The Hedge" that hold positions 1 & 2. You can watch the trailer at the web site, just go to http://www.riisuttumies.fi  and click on "Traileri". There's also a different and longer TV commercial where the song is sung by two Finnish top actors who also star in the movie: Samuli Edelmann (male voice) and Laura Malmivaara (female voice): http://heepfiles.info/rmies.wma . Thanks to Tapio Minkkinen for the info.

MORE HEEP... AND RELATED!

- The On The Rocks band have decided to postpone the recordings of the live DVD because the new songs are not yet fully developed.
John Lawton (speaking on behalf of the band) said, " We really don't want to release or record anything that is not up to the standard which is expected of us and which we expect from ourselves". Due to technical difficulties all European tour dates will be rescheduled for Spring 2007. More details at: http://www.otr-band.co.uk/  . To see some photos (and videoclips) of John singing with Five Fifteen in Finland go to: http://heepfiles.info/fin/jl06/index.htm  (thanks to Tapio Minkkinen).

- Preparations for the October 21st Ken Hensley & Circle of Hands show and fans party are in full swing. We have great prizes for the fans party quiz compiled by Evert Achterberg and Louis Rentrop. We will have a raffle with Heepy material at the Bluescafe during a break in the set. For this raffle Uriah Heep posters from 1975, 1976 and 1977 were brought from the international record fair, all in perfect state. We also have the "Chapter and Verse" boxset, the "Wizards and Demons" book + 4 DVD's, Heep DVD's and CD's, Hensley DVD's and CD's, Heepy beer mats and above all, a "Demons and Wizards" picture disc.
