11th December 2013

uriah heep



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.





WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
