    Set list:
    Starting from the opening act, it was very weird. The Howling is sort of mix with glam metal and emo. I mean musically it wasn't that bad, I quite liked it, however their behaviour on stage was ridiculous. Throwing a microphone towards audience and spiting out a beer... erm... I'd rather stick with studio albums. I spoke to some other people and they couldn't find any info about this band either, so... yeah, weird.

    They played songs listed above, 4 from the new album and rest of them classics from the 70s. Nothing from Wake The Sleeper or 80s. Which is a good thing, to promote an album and play classics. It was such a wonderful and amazing night, the venue was small and we all started to sweat.

    Can't say anything about how the songs were played, all of them were fantastic and all band members, despite their age, are rocking well! I'm having a massive sore throat right now, as I knew the lyrics to nearly all of the songs and so i screamed/sung along, especially during Lady In Black.

    They did an encore starting with Free 'n' Easy, inviting couple of people from the audience to headbang, it was so cute, when two, little boys (aged 8-ish) started to dance.

    I bought Demons And Wizards T-shirt for £20. It's a shame they didn't have Look At Yourself T-shirt there, but still, it is a classic without a doubt. After the show I got an official UH guitar pick, which is my new relic. When we got to the place, we found Mick Box and we asked if we can have a photo with him. I will post it tomorrow. :3

    Epic night, long live Uriah Heep!

    Great write up Nololob, sounds like a top night was had, great set list, glad to see they are still playing Free 'N' Easy, be great to see the picture with Mick. They seem to be one of the bands that still don't mind greeting the fans and having their pictures taken.

    They are still one of the best and so hard working, I haven't seen them in a couple of years. Not been to that venue, what was the sound like? Was there a lot of people there? Please post your pic:)
