In anticipation of the impending release of the 25th studio album "Living the Dream," classic rock icons Uriah Heep will embark on a North American tour in early 2018. Kicking off on February 6 in Ottawa, ON, the trek will run through this Spring, with more dates to be announced soon! The current itinerary can be seen below.
"I really looking forward to playing back in my home country," says singer Bernie Shaw. "It's been a good few years since the HEEP have played in Canada and they'll be in for a treat. As for the States, it's always been a great market for Uriah Heep, and this tour will be uniting us again with some familiar cities and venues. Also making a long awaited trip to Texas is high on my list. Love the food, love the music scene there. Can't wait. Yeeee Ha!"
Founding member and lead guitarist Mick Box adds, "The mighty Heep are ready to rock North America. We have waited so long to put a tour in place and now we have one set, it is an incredibly exciting feeling to know we will soon be playing to our fans out there. We are counting down the days and our set list will be a musical journey that takes us from our first album 'Very 'Eavy, Very 'Umble' to the last one 'Outsider.' 'Appy days!"
In addition to the tour announcement, the band have launched a pledge campaign to crowd fund "Living the Dream," the forthcoming studio offering, making it the 25th in the band's storied career. Fans who contribute will have access to exclusive behind the scenes footage from the recording sessions as well as other perks such as playing with the band during a soundcheck, a signed copy of the album, and much more! Fans can participate at this location.
