For one night only, Uriah Heep reunites with core members of the classic 1970s line-up, welcoming both Ken Hensley and Lee Kerslake to the Moscow Crocus’ iconic stage, to perform the band’s classic hits in a 2 hour set. Originally founded by guitarist Mick Box in 1969, Uriah Heep is truly one of the pivotal classic acts that helped define the rock sound and an era. Part of the fabled ‘Big Four’ alongside Zeppelin, Sabbath and Purple, the Heep story still has a long way to go.
With classic songs like ‘July Morning’, ‘Lady In Black’, ‘Gypsy’, ‘Easy Livin”and ‘Stealin” full of ambition, sophisticated writing, memorable tunes and, of course, the vocals – the 5 part harmonies were a clear influence on the operatics of Queen. Uriah Heep was the first Western rock band to perform in Russia, the band has headlined at stadiums worldwide.
Uriah Heep tours all over the world, has released 23 studio-albums and sold more than 40 million units. Today’s line-up is settled as Mick Box (Guitar/Vocals), Bernie Shaw (Lead Vocal), Phil Lanzon (Keys/Vocals), Davey Rimmer (Bass/Vocals) and Russell Gilbrook (Percussion/Vocals).
Uriah Heep will be joined on stage on October 15 by Ken Hensley [Hammond, vocals, slide guitar] and Lee Kerslake [drums, vocals]. Ken parted from Uriah Heep in 1980 to continue his song writing and solo career. Lee stayed with Uriah Heep until 2007.
The event will be ‘Very ‘Eavy, ‘Very ‘Umble – a one-off, and truly unmissable.
