    Just had a look on Uriah Heep's home page and see their imminent tour of Russia has been cancelled - for obvious reasons other than Covid.

    I was also distraught when my concerts for which I bought tickets were canceled one by one. I was so offended that I was ready to cry every time I saw that the concert was postponed or canceled in principle. Now I always listen to online concerts on the crowdfunding promoters service if someone suits me.

    Prog and heavy rock fans will be spoilt for choice later this year and into 2022.
    I see tour dates have been announced for Wishbone Ash, Deep Purple, Yes, Stranglers, Genesis, Thunder, Jethro Tull, Uriah Heep and Gong!

    I know that it has happened with the theatres - annoying that booking tickets for a performance especially for a special day like one's own birthday, and they move the performance to a week later ruining any plans. I go for another theatre that is hosting the same show on what is the same day as the old one.

    It was like that with all the theatres closed last year - all the performances cancelled due to coronavirus.

    Good call for Space Ritual.
    First time I saw Hawkwind live was at Guildford Civic Hall, on their Atomhenge tour. With hindsight, it was perilously close to Spinal Tap, but brilliantly OTT and the second loudest band I'd ever seen.

    Looks like the first festival of 2021 will be Black Deer down in Kent, scheduled for 25/26/27 June.
    Whilst Americana/folk-rock isn't my preferred genre, the presence of Robert Plant and Van Morrison could make this something special.
    Will keep an eye on it and, if it's definitely going ahead, may treat myself.

    It's not what it was, granted and Child in Time or Highway Star will never sound as good as they did in the 70s, but I'm sure it will still give me a shiver down my spine and take me back a few decades!

    Same with Uriah Heep. Bernie was never quite as good a frontman as David Byron and last time I saw them, Bernie's voice was obviously struggling - especially in a very vocally demanding song like Pilgrim. It was still a magical concert though.

    Good call for one of the greatest live albums - I've still got my original vinyl. ELP's Welcome Back My Friends was magnificent too and I felt humbled to be there at Victoria Park for ELP's final concert in 2010.

    I intend to go to the London (O2) concert.
    I've saved enough on rail travel since working from home not to begrudge forking out 50 to see a band I've been into since my schooldays!
