Two long-time members of Uriah Heep will return to the band for a special October 15 show at the Moscow Circus.

Keyboard and guitar player Ken Hensley and drummer Lee Kerslake will join current members Mick Box, Bernie Shaw, Phil Lanzon, Davey Rimmer and Russell Gilbrook for the one-off show, playing with the band throughout their two-hour set.

Uriah Heep started in 1967 as The Stalkers and, later, Spice. When the band wanted to add keyboards to their sound in 1969, they brought in Hensley who had been a member of the band Toe Fat. He eventually became the band’s main songwriter, including the band’s iconic hit Easy Livin’, and stayed with the them until September 1980. Hensley was later a member of Blackfoot and appeared with W.A.S.P. and Cinderella.

Kerslake joined as the drummer in 1971 and originally stayed until 1979. He went on to form Blizzard of Ozz with Ozzy Osbourne during 1980 and 1981. He returned to Uriah Heap in ’81 and stayed with them until 2007 when he left due to illness.
