The July concert at Clam Castle near Linz has now been confirmed by The first of the Russian concerts in November has also been officially confirmed:

16 July: Clam Castle, Linz, Austria

There was an interview with Morten in a recent issue of Classic Rock Magazine, where he talks about discovering his “prog heroes” Uriah Heep in the mid-70s.

Heep meant everything to me in those years – on records like Magician’s Birthday, Demons and Wizards and, of course, Wonderworld, their songwriting was so very good – and I still feel the same way“, Morten says.

A scan of the magazine feature can be found on the official Uriah Heep website here.
