"I really looking forward to playing back in my home country," says singer Bernie Shaw. "It's been a good few years since the Deep have played in Canada and they'll be in for a treat. As for the States, it's always been a great market for Uriah Heep, and this tour will be uniting us again with some familiar cities and venues. Also making a long awaited trip to Texas is high on my list. Love the food, love the music scene there. Can't wait. Yeeee Ha!"

Founding member and lead guitarist Mick Box adds, "The mighty Heep are ready to rock North America. We have waited so long to put a tour in place and now we have one set, it is an incredibly exciting feeling to know we will soon be playing to our fans out there. We are counting down the days and our set list will be a musical journey that takes us from our first album 'Very 'Eavy, Very 'Umble to the last one 'Outsider.''Appy days!"
