- BREAKING NEWS!!!
Both upcoming Uriah Heep concerts in Holland this week will be filmed:
November 13th at the Atak in Enschede and November 14th at the P3 in
Purmerend. The band will play the complete "Wake The Sleeper" album plus a
selection of classics. If you are in the area, be sure not to miss them!
And, of course, make a lot of noise between the songs!
In addition, an interview will be made with the band before the gig and we
need suggestions of interesting questions, so you can send any ideas to
Louis at firstname.lastname@example.org until Wednesday evening.
- Another message from Mick Box to the fans... From the road!
"Well we are half way through our European tour Oct/Nov for this year and
so far it has been great. The new set list has been very well received
thus far and the reactions and reports have all been positive. Long may
they continue! We are really enjoying playing this set of songs and the
challenge of playing the whole album each night is most welcome and
rewarding. Because of this even the classic songs sound fresh which is
great. The Ioannis artwork on the backdrop looks fantastic and we even
have screens made from the artwork to cover Trevor and my amplifiers which
add to the production. We cannot always display these because of the stage
sizes but when we do it looks great. We have travelled many miles on the
tour bus and one journey alone from Zlin in the Czech Republic to Tallin
in Estonia was 30 hours. Despite this we are all coping well and the
spirit in the camp is high. As I am writing this we have just finished a 2
hour 30 minutes ferry from Helsinki to Tallin and a 10 hour bus journey
lies ahead as we travel to Lithuania. Along the way it has been quite
eventful as we have been stopped by the traffic police twice, we only
played 1 hour of a 1 hour 30 minute show in Helsinki at the corporate show
as it was stopped by the police because the audience were too drunk, (I
kid you not but we got some good press out of it) we missed a morning TV
show in Tallin by 15 minutes after the 30 hour journey and our trailer
that we carry the backline on the back of the bus was damaged (it is fixed
now) but on the whole it has all been good. The merchandise has been going
down great and the tour programmes have been a definite hit and I must say
they look fantastic. We try as often as we can to come out after the show
and do a signing at the merchandise stand which Jason the jolly swagman
organises. We sign merchandising and have pictures taken and generally
meet the fans that have stayed behind. This has been a great success but
it is not always possible. We try to do it whenever we can. There is a
long way to go yet and we are all missing our families but the rock n’
roll circus continues and there are many more miles to travel, shows to
play and fans to meet. Everyone that has bought a ticket for the show and
purchased merchandising and of course the Wake the Sleeper CD/Vinyl we
thank you for your support as it means the world to us! There are many
exciting times ahead on this roller coaster called Uriah Heep and there is
a positive air that smells just great.
