Article written by the brilliant Sean Lloyd on the 19 Mar 2010

So Uriah Heep and Deep Purple are touring South Africa in June 2010.




This is one for the oldies! Tell your folks about this. Jason let me know about this and it was weird that I didn’t know about this…to be honest the names Deep Purple and Uriah Heep didn’t mean too much to me until I realised what songs they sang. Then I realised that I had a Uriah Heep CD on my desk all along. Awesome!

Check this about Deep Purple:
“Deep Purple are an English rock band formed in Hertford  in 1968. Along with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, they are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, although some band members have tried not to categorise themselves as any one genre. The band also incorporated classical music, blues-rock, pop and progressive rock elements. They were once listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s loudest band, and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide. Deep Purple were ranked #22 on VH1’s Greatest Artists of Hard Rock programme.”

Yeah! That’s quite mad and to have them tour South Africa is mad. They’ll be doing shows in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. It’s all a BIT much to be part of rock history like this, and we don’t even need to leave home. If you don’t recognize the names, you’ll recognize the song “Smoke On The Water” by Deep Purple

It’s been used like a million times in movies and other cool stuff like that. Wickie wow!

Tom Kenmuir would know these guys.
