Nov 25 - Hara Arena, Dayton, OH {billed as "Euriah Heep"}

I was rooting through my archives and rediscovered the attached oversized handbill/small poster for Uriah Heep at Hara Arena, Dayton, OH, on November 25, 1972. This show was at the peak of my Heepiness and we had 5th row center seats. Mr. Box brought the rock. I hope that this dusty document is of some use to the Heep archives.

Seizure later,

I forgot to mention that the handwritten "1973" at the bottom is obviously in error."

My names Bob Cocks just had to respond to your request for tickets.  Delved into my old ticket shoebox and came up with the attached selection.  Plenty of memories amongst this lot.  Ticket stub for the Sophia Gardens is fairly unique.  They only played there once and the building was demolished about 10 years later due to a heavy snow fall.  The stubs from the Capitol Cinema also brings back memories because that cinema is no longer there it is now a shopping mall.  That gig holds special memories because on the back of ticket 10 which I have sent is Mick and Lees signature, we met them in the bar next door and had a great time.  I realised then that they were a little different and very approachable guys.  The only venue I know still exists is the Hammersmith Odeon but it is now called something different I think its the Hammersmith Palais, dont know about the Rainbow perhaps there are some fans out there that may know if it is still there.  There should be stubs from gigs at the Alexander Palace in 1973 and a few from fairly recent when I find them I will e-mail them to you.  All the best as Mick would say 'appy days.
