German Tour info:
http://www.kb-k.com/HTML/Tourdaten%20Uriah%20Heep.htm

- The German acoustic Heep tour has started!  After a successful first gig on Thursday, Bernie Shaw had some problems with his voice due to a cold, and so unfortunately the concerts originally scheduled to happen last Friday and yesterday had to be cancelled.  The good news is that after some rest Bernie is recovering and the tour will go on!  Even better, yesterday's gig was rescheduled to take place TODAY, Sunday December 5th, at the same venue, Audi Zentrum, in Flensburg, Germany.  For the remaining concerts everything is confirmed!

- The first photos from the German acoustic tour are already available here:

- Mick Box and Bernie Shaw played 3 songs at the opening of Munich's Rock Museum (
http://www.rockmuseum.de/1.html) on November 30th, last Tuesday.  Follow this link to see Mick and Bernie on the video: http://www.rockmuseum.de/Rockmuseum.wmv .

- Now on German TV (after the band's appearance last week), a commercial for "The Ultimate Anthology" CD!  The Heep is back... (thanks to Manfred Blank for the news).

- Christmas tip: "Between Two Worlds", the amazing record of Uriah Heep live in concert at the Magician?s Birthday Party 2004.  Order "Between Two Worlds" by 31st December 2004 and get a free Uriah Heep T-Shirt from Classic Rock Direct:

- The local paper in Victoria, BC (Canada), the "Times Colonist", is running a joke piece to contrast with CBC's "Greatest Canadians" event - the TC piece is called "Greatest Canadians you've never heard of".  Bernie Shaw's picture was featured along with the comment that he is unknown here but "revered" in Europe!  Thanks to Graham Howe for this bit of Heep trivia.

- As reported before, the Ken Hensley Band will be playing in Mexico in March at the Baja Prog Festival in Mexicali and probably also in Mexico City.  The current plans also include some gigs in the USA around the same time, so if you know any club owners, local promoters or someone who may be able to help organising something, please let us know!  Your help and support can make the difference...

- The "Free Me" Maxi Single CDs are being shipped now, so hopefully they'll arrive in time for Christmas for most of the people who already ordered it.  As mentioned, the first 100 orders made through the website (
http://www.ken-hensley.com) include signed CDs and a free bonus "The Last Dance" t-shirt.

- John Lawton will be a guest on Moonstone, the new project of Italian guitarist Matteo Filippini.  The musical direction of the project is being described as "genuine British-oriented '70s classic rock", and their album - "Time To Take A Stand" - is scheduled for release in early 2005.  More details:

- Another hint on a Heep-sounding band: Lucifer Was, a Swedish hard prog band, especially on the album "Blues From Hellah".  Except from a Captain Beyond's cover ("Amworth" from their debut album), the songs are all originals.  The singer has reportedly a David Byron/Ken Hensley feel and the music can be describe as a mix between Uriah Heep/Rough Diamond and old Jethro Tull (because of their bluesy style and the use of the flute).  More details:
