MetalkTalk are pleased to bring you an exclusive announcement from the legendary Uriah Heep this morning...
Uriah Heep are delighted to announce a very special one-off show at KOKO, in Camden, London on 4th March 2014. All Uriah Heep fans are urged not to miss out on the filming. Tickets are going on sale at 9am tomorrow (Friday) priced at £24 from www.eventim.co.uk.
This show will be filmed and released as a live DVD on Frontiers Records in later 2014/early 2015. As well as a host of Heep classics, the set will also include some new songs that will be taken from the material that the band is writing for the forthcoming 2014 album, following 2011s 'Into The Wild' which was the band's highest charting album since the 1970s in worldwide territories!

Fans attending the show will be in with a chance of being filmed themselves, not only as part of the audience, but also for some special bonus features to be included on the DVD! The band is inviting their fans from around the world to be a part of this experience; this is a chance to be part of Heep history.
Mick Box said: "After playing in 54 countries around the world promoting 'Into The Wild' it's great to be coming back to London where it all began!"
2014 is set to be yet another big one for Mick Box and the band as they work on the new material, and of course keep on touring; Heep has been round the world several times in the last 24 months visiting South Africa, Australia, Asia, North America, South America and East and West Russia. The band headlined the first ever Planet Rock Stock in December.
Heep will play the prestigious Sweden Rock Festival in the Summer [after their storming Download show in 2013].
With classic songs like 'Lady In Black', 'Gypsy', 'Easy Livin'' and 'Look At Yourself', and a magnificent 44 year catalogue full of ambition, sophisticated writing, memorable tunes and, of course, the vocals - the five part harmonies were a clear influence on the operatics of Queen - Uriah Heep has headlined at stadia worldwide: truly the band has ensured its place at rock's top table.
Uriah Heep is acknowledged as one of the world's great live acts.
The KOKO show will follow a set of intimate UK February dates and another headliner at the Giants of Rock Festival on February 9th.
