Uriah Heep

Postby samlewis45 » Thu Sep 08, 2016 4:33 pm

One of the originators of hard rock/metal, and still absolutely fantastic live. Bloodstock seems to have a couple of 'old boy' bands per year, and I think these would go down a storm. They arguably rock harder now than they did in the 70s.

A few years ago they would have been a shoo-in.

Unfortunately I don't really think they are interested in booking bands like this anymore.

You're probably right, which is a big shame

Really good band. But probably not bloodstock type.

Yes. It's been years since I last saw them. Would love to see them at Bloodstock.

They were good at Download a few years back. Would be great to see them play a longer set.

I absolutely loved their Download set. It would be great to see them do another festival!
