Uriah Heep Rocks Scottsdale!

The Shabby gang all attended the Uriah Heep concert at BLK Live in Scottsdale, AZ Sunday night. Although the band’s only original member was guitarist Mick Box, the band sounded extremely tight. The rhythm section was extraordinary and the keyboard player was pumping some filthy Hammond B3. The new lead singer, who incidentally has been with the band for over 20 years now, was charismatic and held his own.

Afterwards, both Lizz and A.D. hung out with the band for some time. Mick Box was a complete delight, what a great dude. We even coaxed him into providing us a shabby road ID.

Suffice to say, if they are coming to your town grab some tickets and enjoy a great night just like we did.
