URIAH HEEP adds two additional UK dates to the 2022 Mammoth European Tour “Celebrating 50 years of Uriah Heep”


Uriah Heep have just added two more UK tour dates, Nottingham and York, due to huge demand.

At the end of 2021, Uriah Heep announced an extensive European tour for 2022. The tour, 61 dates in 28 countries, is the ultimate celebration of one of the most important British rock bands of all time.

2020 saw Uriah Heep celebrate her 50th birthday. Unfortunately, world events forced the band to cancel their 50th anniversary tour. But two years later, the group is ready to celebrate this extraordinary event.

Mick Box says, “Finally, we can celebrate our 50th anniversary now that we’ve left ‘Lockdown into Rockdown.’ We may be two years later than the actual year, but hey, that makes the celebration even more special. The mighty ‘Heep’ are still ‘Eavy, still ‘Umble’ and oh so proud of this achievement, and we can’t wait to be on the road, playing hard and sharing this celebration with our wonderful fans. ‘Appy days!’

Uriah Heep have proven themselves to be a stunning live band – retaining die-hard fans and constantly gaining a whole new audience.

The Celebrating 50 Years Of Uriah Heep Tour will be one of the rock events of 2022. Tickets for Nottingham and York will go on sale at 10:00 GMT on Friday 28 January. See uriah-heep.com for more details.

BMG continues to present a new set of limited edition vinyl images of Uriah Heep, with Demons And Wizards and The Magician’s Birthday releasing on February 25th. The artwork on each Picture Disc has been meticulously crafted, retouching the original art and creating a visual feast. Both albums feature the original and re-imagined artwork by Roger Dean, who is widely regarded as one of the masters of 12″ album art of this era.

Originally released in May 1972, Uriah Heep’s fourth album Demons And Wizards featured the singles “The Wizard” and “Easy Livin'” and led Rolling Stone magazine at the time to write “.. one hell of a top-notch modern rock band.” Just six months later, in November 1972, Uriah Heep released his fifth album, The Magician’s Birthday, which featured the hits “Sweet Lorraine” and “Spider Woman.” Demons And Wizards and The Magician’s Birthday both went gold in the United States, entering the Billboard Top 40, securing years of concert dominance for the band throughout the 70s.

Both albums contain original audio recorded at Landsdowne Studios.

Uriah Heep are one of the “big four” bands in rock, along with Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, and certainly one of the most intriguing bands, both musically and lyrically, to emerge from heavy rock. Evoking a time when prog, hard rock and heavy metal coexisted in an era of glorious and revolutionary music, Uriah Heep went from inexperienced studio musicians with everything to prove to bona fide rock stars.

Having sold over 40 million albums worldwide, over the years Uriah Heep has influenced many different metal bands around the world, some of the most popular being Dio. Bands like A-ha, King Diamond, Krokus, Demons & Wizards, Fifth Angel and Axel Rudi Pell have all cited Uriah Heep as a personal influence band, while WASP, Tesla and Blackmore’s Night have all covered the band’s songs. .

Uriah Heep continues to tour to this day with founding member Mick Box and their extensive European tour for 2022 includes 61 dates in 28 countries, tickets available here.
