Uriah Heep: To Perform Entire "Demons And Wizards" On U.S. Tour

Progressive rockers Uriah Heep will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of their classic fourth album, "Demons And Wizards" by performing the LP in its entity at select U.S. shows this fall. 

"Demons And Wizards" is regarded by many fans and critics alike as Uriah Heep's best album, often ranked against the preceding "Look At Yourself". Even Rolling Stone magazine, which printed an infamously negative review of the band's debut album, ran a positive assessment of "Demons And Wizards". The songs "The Wizard" and "Easy Livin'" were released as singles in the United Kingdom and North America, as well as many other markets. "Easy Livin'" entered the U.S. Top 40 at #39, making it Heep's first and only American hit. "Easy Livin'" was also a mega hit in the Netherlands and Germany, countries which were becoming a strong market for the band. The album itself was certified gold in the U.S. on October 27, 1972.
