KEEP ON HEEPING AT THE FEST
On March 23 in London will take place THE HEEPFEST carrying many events in its tight schedule.
There will be the screening of the new documentary covering URIAH HEEP history from 1986 until now, the period of the most stable line-up in the band’s career. Video features previously unseen footage, brand new performances, backstage interviews as well as extensive film from the Olympic Stadium show shot on the legendary Moscow tour in 1987.
The delight for the eyes will be the Roger Dean Preview Exhibition of Original Paintings – a preview of selected original works by Roger Dean including the original artworks for “Demons And Wizards”, “The Magician’s Birthday”, “Sea Of Light” and “Acoustically Driven” albums. Other paintings include artwork used on the albums of YES, GENTLE GIANT and ASIA. Roger Dean will be there in person on Friday and, possibly, Saturday.
URIAH HEEP concert at the London Astoria where the band members will stay. The gig is part of the split HEEP/NAZARETH tour.
For those still alive there will be an opportunity to set for The Aftershow Party – Phil Lanzon’s Birthday Bash. The HEEP keyboard wiz is happy to celebrate his birthday with his fans. So don’t miss the chance.
