Foire aux Vins d'Alsace
The kids wanted to go to France for this years holidays. I wanted to go to Germany. When I took a look at the Uriah Heep tourdates I decided that France wasn't that bad. Colmar is a not so big place in the Vosges and the Vosges is a beautiful part of France, situated in the north-east of France, near the German border.
We stayed 40 kilometers south from Colmar near the highest peak of the Vosges, Le Grand Ballon (1426 m. high).
The "Foire aux Vins d'Alsace" (The Alsacer Wine Festival) is the biggest winefestival in the Vosges.
During 10 days there were a lot of (famous) artist on the Foire.
Throught the whole Vosges you could find billboards with this kind of posters.
There was a special magasin with information about all acts of the Foire.
The Dernieres Nouvelles d'Alsace wrote this about Uriah Heep on Saturday:
Uriah Heep... hip hip hourra! More than 30 years after their debut is this English Metal band, followers of bands like Jethro Tull, Iron Butterfly and Kiss, still alive. And the public follows: their last hard rock studio album, bombastic and theatric, which made them famous, has been bought by 350.000 buyers. During a big tour, from Tromso in Norway, Moscow and ... Kuala Lumpur, the band of Mick Box will stay this night in Colmar
