Uriah Heep are taking their 25th studio album ‘Living The Dream’ on the road in the run-up to Christmas.
The very ‘eavy and very ‘umble rockers will see out 2018 in style by playing December shows in Manchester, Glasgow, London, Nottingham and Hull. The dates follow the release of ‘Living The Dream’ on Friday 14th September via Frontiers Music Srl.
We have a 72-hour ticket presale to the tour that has kicked off at Planet Rock Tickets. General sale tickets follow on Friday 4th May.
Keyboardist Phil Lanzon enthuses: “Hey! It’s time to return to our own backyard where it all started. I’m so looking forward to this mini UK tour. Great venues, great people, and it’ll be even ‘greater’ to be back home on familiar territory. Rock it up.”
Vocalist Bernie Shaw adds: “In true Heep fashion the band will be out on tour promoting our newest album Living the Dream released on Sept 14. Our 25th studio album promises to bring some new power and melody to the live shows and we can’t wait to play to our home crowds in the UK this December.
“2018-2019 will be a very busy time for the band as we plan a full world tour. I’m sure the fans will love the raw power and traditional Heep musical trademarks that have made the band last so many years. See you out on the road!
Lead guitarist and founding member Mick Box comments: “The Heep Rock n’ Roll Circus just keeps on rolling, and long may it last. ‘Appy days!”

Mick Box says: “The mighty Uriah Heep are excited to announce the release of their new album on the 14th September 2018 called ‘Living The Dream.’ The producer for this project was famed producer Jay Ruston, and this will be released on Frontiers Records. The new album rocks and thanks to our fans and your continued support, we are still Living that Dream. ‘Appy days!”
Bernie Shaw continues: “Jay Rushton’s production has brought the power from our live shows onto the record. A now invaluable member of the “Heep” family. Can’t wait to play these songs live!”
