British heavy metal groups Saxon and Uriah Heep will be coming to the Hard Rock Event Center at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa on Wednesday, April 24 at 8 p.m.
Saxon was formed in 1979 and became leaders in the NWOBHM movement alongside bands such as Iron Maiden and Def Leppard and was an inspiration to the likes of Metallica, Pantera etc. Touring to support their 24th studio album Hell, Fire & Damnation, which will be released on January 19th, the band has continued to be at the top of their game throughout the years. Headlining many of the major rock festivals annually in Europe as well as an extensive touring commitment around the world, their massive and loyal fan base continues to grow, and the band doesn’t look as though they are slowing down at any point soon. Their setlist will consist of all the classic tracks such as Wheels Of Steel, 747 (Strangers in the night), Strong Arm Of The Law, Power and the Glory and Denim and Leather.
Uriah Heep is currently in their 54th year and has never stopped. With a 25 studio album catalog, the band is touring to support their 2023 release Chaos & Colour that has had rave reviews from both fans and media alike worldwide.
As part of the “Big Four” in the 70’s, which also included Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, Uriah Heep were pioneers in the hard rock field and an inspiration to many major touring and recording artists still to this day. The band continues to tour around the world with 63 countries under their belt over the years. Having sold over 40 million records, fans old and new continue to flock to shows and festival appearances to experience the classic hits such as Easy Livin’, Gypsy, Stealin’, Sweet Lorraine and July Morning.
