- Uriah Heep played last weekend at the Arrow Classic Rock Festival for a
huge crowd of 28,000 people, together with other great classic rock acts!
Read here what people wrote in the festival's guestbook (thanks to Monique
Spruit for the translation):
"Far out!  Fantastic show by by absolute faves: Uriah Heep, also Lynyrd
Skynyrd were great!  The festival area was well organised, enough space,
plenty of caterers and clean toilets.  No need for parking as the camp site
was nearby.  Ideal!  Definitely a festival to repeat!" - Marije
"Gee man, what a wild day.  Compliments for the organisation and most bands
were great.  Would love top see Uriah Heep on the main stage again but
please, after 5pm!" - Nick
"A great festival but Heep beat them all.  Status Quo is just all the same
thing over and over again, Deep Purple only a few good songs and the others
all a bit tedious.  Thin Lizzy was good and so was Manfred Mann.  There
were four of us from Standdaarbuiten and we even ran into other rockin'
locals.  We'll go again next year.  Only please, make sure Heep will play
from 10 pm till midnight!  We got home OK at 4am, bit crowded on the
parking lot." - Rens Nachtzaam
"Musical taste is something you can't argue about but when it comes to
presentation and show Heep was simply the best.  Even though they played at
5pm, they were able to reach more people compared to the bands playing
later." - Bram
"I'm only 19 so I was born 30 years late but Arrow makes up by creating a
festival like this.  That I would ever see bands like Deep Purple, Skynyrd,
Status Quo, Wishbone Ash ­ just great!  The highlight of today was of
course Uriah Heep, what a master performance!" - Marco
"I had never seen Heep in concert before and basically knew the band
because of Easy Livin' and Stealin'.  The music has appealed to me though.
The concert was out of this world!  You can read the various other reviews
on various sites: they're justly on the no.1 position when it comes to
polls.  I hope they will return to this festival again!  Let the 70s and
80s revive!" - Jan Willem
"I went to Rock Arrow in Lichtenvoorde last night and to me Heep was the
best!  What beautiful music!  When it was over I had a lump in my throat
and tears in my eyes.  Some bands just ignite this spark while others
can't, Uriah Heep is under my skin and very close to my heart!" - Melanie J.
