Win A Ticket To Uriah Heep @ B.B. King’s On 2/28/2015

Poster - Uriah Heep - 2015

The Details:
Uriah Heep is one of the best live bands that I have ever gotten the chance to see and while I was a super latecomer to their sound outside of the staple tracks that everyone seems to know, I’ve tried to make up for lost time by supporting their efforts when they visit town. It’s been a couple of years since we’ve seen them drop by town and since that time we’ve lost the great bassist of Trevor Bolder who the music world misses very much. Still the show must go on, and Mick Box is not a guitarist that you want to miss seeing wield his craft. That said I am psyched to be offering my PiercingMetal readers the chance to see this incredible band for free thanks to the fine folks at B.B. King Blues Club where they will be performing once again. Read more on how to participate below.

When and Where: Saturday, February 28th at B.B. King Blues Club 7:00pm (237 West 42nd Street NYC)

To Participate: Please let me know what your favorite thing about the band Uriah Heep is and please try to be original and make it interesting. Of course should you be one of the new blood who has never seen them before, let me know why this show is of interest to you. Give me about three things so I have something with oomph to read and mull over. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. Be sure to enter your full real name and a working email address in the comment form as we need this for listing purposes. Do NOT place this information in the comment itself as it will not be approved (privacy concerns and all). It’s important to subscribe to comments for the duration of the contest for good measure. Please only enter once because with all comments being moderated you will not see your submission until it is approved. Let me have it and yes this is for a single ticket only based on demand. We also ask that you only enter if you can and will attend should you win. If its logistically challenging to be at the show, please bypass this giveaway so no one else misses out.

Restrictions: All of the PiercingMetal contests are open to our loyal readers, Facebook Page likers and Twitter Followers but that being said we are still looking for the new names first. Don’t let that stop you from entering of course but we do keep track based on the overall demand for this stuff at this point. We want EVERYONE to have a chance to enjoy a show on the provider and PiercingMetal but if you just won you will likely not have a chance for this one. Please note that Anonymous or Guest comments while approved will not be eligible to win and this contest is running concurrently with our giveaway for Vanilla Fudge as well. Readers can only win one of these two contests.

  1. I’d love to see Uriah Heep. Never seen em before. I think they are one of the founders of Heavy Rock
    Their song “Stealin” is one of my all time favorites.

    And I live in the NYC area

    1. They sure are one of the founders of Heavy Rock Seth and congratulations because you are going to see just how great they are live as you have won a ticket to see them at B.B. King’s on Saturday. Please stay tuned to the comments for one from me that closes up the contest and lines out all the details.

      1. Wow, cool. I never win anything. The thing is, I hate to see a show all by myself. My girlfriend entered as well,but she didn’t win.Maybe,just maybe, you could spare another ticket? I’d really appreciate it

  2. Thanks for this great opportunity!

    I was too young to ever see Uriah Heep, since they formed the year I was born and lost popularity in the US by the 80’s when I was old enough to attend concerts. So, I would be one of the new blood who has never seen them before.

    I enjoy the music of Uriah Heep. Uriah Heep had become one of the top hard rock bands in the early 70’s. They came to be during the time of many bands I enjoyed early on — Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple. These are all bands that helped form my musical tastes and that I still enjoy today.

    I also love the name of the band. Since I am an avid reader and appreciate literature, I think it is cool that the band name, Uriah Heep, is based on a fictional character created by Charles Dickens in the novel David Copperfield. The character is notable for his cheesy humility and insincerity, but saw himself as humble.

    Most people don’t know the band is still recording — with changes to the original line-up, but Uriah Heep entered the studio in January 2014 to record their 24th studio album Outsider, which was released in June. I will certainly listen to all the tunes on that recording before I see them at BB Kings.

    1. Why you are welcome Karen, and considering you have never seen them before we are going to put you into the venue as well on Saturday as one of the winners of a ticket to enjoy the show. Please stay tuned for the comments from me that close the contest and let you know how to claim it that night.

  3. I Love this band! it’s been aboslute ages since i’ve seen them ! Im not big on typing and paragraph long pleading, so just straight up been a long time would love to go!

      1. Thank you.would have been nice to win myself. But psyched to see them again after all these years!!!

  4. The golden voice of David Byron kindled my first love of Uriah Heep. The more i divulged into their discography the more I realized the brilliance of their songwriting. Doesn’t matter if its more of a straight up rock song or a ballad its all equally easy to get lost in their music and see your afternoon breeze by.

    1. Hey Max I will take that all as a sign that you want to see the show so congratulations you have also won a ticket to see Uriah Heep at B.B. King’s on Saturday. Please stay tuned to the comments for one from me that closes this up and lines out the details on how you claim it at the show.

  5. Alright Heepsters, that is it for our contest for the great Uriah Heep. This contest is 100% officially closed. Congratulations to all of our three winners who are not only going to this sure to be rocking show but also getting to bring a guest along with them. Here are the details for the event.

    On the night of the show, please go to the venue podium downstairs and ask for the House Guest List, your name will be there and you given entry with your guest. You will need proof of identity of course. There could be a PiercingMetal reference as well. Should you encounter any difficulty, please politely ask for an onsite manager and cite how this contest was done in coordination with venue Marketing. Sadly my night has another commitment so I am missing out on this one but I hope you all have a fantastic time.
