If it’s 2015, it must be time for Uriah Heep to return to Israel. The 1970s-era British hard rockers have become perennial visitors in the past decade or so, with shows in 2003, 2008 and 2013.

This time the veteran band will perform at the Theater Club in Tel Aviv on February 11. Formed in the late 1960s by vocalist Dave Byron and guitarist Mick Box, the band rode in the same prog rock circles as Deep Purple and Jethro Tull, but without the same accolades.

Heep enjoyed their biggest success with the 1972 album Demons and Wizards and the following years saw them become a top arena attraction in the US with their fusion of art rock and metal, heavy on fantasy, swirling keyboard and reverent bombast.

Today, Box is the only original member, but the band and it’s five-part harmonies have soldiered on, retaining a relatively stable lineup for over a decade.
