Uriah Heep

Rocks The 

Kent Stage

During Three Night

Residency

May 11th, 2019

Uriah Heep is out supporting their latest release, Living The Dream.  They are currently opening up for Judas Priest across the country but decided to set up a three-day residency at The Kent Stage to headline some shows.

Founding member and lead guitarist Mick Box has been touring with Uriah Heep for forty-nine years and shows no signs of slowing down.  His playing was fantastic and solos were on-point all night long.

The band opened up the show with a raucous version of "Grazed By Heaven," which set the tone for the evening.  

Lead vocalist Bernie Shaw noted that it was nice to be in the same place for the next couple of nights so he wouldn't have to be "sleeping in a moving bed."

The band tore through classics like "Return To Fantasy" and "Rainbow Demon," but really took the time to highlight new material by playing six songs from Living The Dream, including "Waters Flowin'" and "Rocks In The Road."

I've been to The Kent Stage many times over the years, and last night's sound mix was superb.  I've never heard a rock show sound better.

The set ended with an extended version of "July Morning."

Mick Box and company came back to encore with two songs, "Sunrise" and the classic rock staple "Easy Livin'."
