Metropolis Touring have announced the return of legendary rockers URIAH HEEP to Australia. Considered one of the ‘Big Four’ pioneers of hard rock and heavy metal in the late ‘60’s and early ‘70’s along with BLACK SABBATH, DEEP PURPLE & LED ZEPPELIN – URIAH HEEP still enjoy legendary status.
URIAH HEEP’s unique, progressive, hard sound has made them a mainstay of the rock circuit for four decades.

With a catalogue of 23 studio albums that includes ‘Demons and Wizards’ (1972), ‘Abominog’ (1982), and their most recent release, 2011’s ‘Into The Wild’ (their highest charting album since the ‘70’s) it’s no surprise that the band has sold over 40 million records worldwide.
