Some of Ken's Latest Work
Ken's been busy flying all over the world this year, and he's not stopping now! There's plenty of shows still to go before the end of the year! So jump over to the Tour page and see where he's headed next!
Ken Hensley & Our Propaganda
FINALLY!!! This is for everyone, especially my many friends and fans in the UK
I am coming home and I am coming home to rock!
My last UK show was 2001, so, on April 13th, after 15 long years, I get my chance to totally re-locate, to “The 1865” in Southampton,
using only great rock songs and a great young rock band as weapons!!
I received the offer to play this show soon after having to put my Live Fire project on hold, so I started to think about how best to vaporise anyone
who had the balls to buy a ticket to this show and I came across Our Propaganda. Great players with great songs of their own and they will be my perfect allies in this attack.
First I looked at them and smiled. They reminded me so much of another 20-year-old with a big dream.
Then I took a listen and knew immediately that I wanted these guys wrapped around my mighty Hammond as we re-generate some of the most powerful and successful rock songs that originally blasted their way into rock consciousness with my band, Uriah Heep, in the ´70s.
Our Propaganda and me will bring these great tunes into the 21st century.
Unless you are one of the lucky 20 music students from Southampton Solent University... who will be invited to one of our rehearsals and an inspirational/motivational Q&A with me... you'd better get your tickets now!!
Who knows when/if I will be back??
Hope to see you there and then and I will stick around after the show so we can re-connect personally.

Read about Ken's latest tour in Russia in The Interview That Wasnt
On October 15th this year, after a musical career of more than 50 years, I was privileged to be a part of another piece of rock & roll history, when I was invited to join Mick and Uriah Heep for a special concert in Moscow.
For me it was an amazing experience, a kind of re-entry into a world I had left behind so many years ago and, as it was happening, looking across the stage at Mick, seeing Lee on the drums, I was able to re-live so many great memories.
And I found myself wearing a permanent smile and laughing constantly, like some kind of impish child!
Of course David and Gary were not there but in a way they were, along with all the others who, over the years, helped make Heep into the legendary rock band it was and still is.
Well, it´s almost June, the year is flying by already and I have a lot to do!
After spending the first 2 months of 2015 recovering from a nasty lung infection, I feel great now and I am looking forward to all the projects ahead.
While I was confined to home, I spent most of my time writing and I have a lot of new songs ready for a new CD, which we are planning to record in January 2016. As usual, it will be a very different record and I am excited (and a little bit amused .... you´ll see!) to think how these songs will come out after Live Fire and me kick them around in the studio!
Ben will be posting new tour dates soon and (this is for my UK friends and fans) we are looking at a solo tour in the UK later this year!
It´s been a really long time since I played the UK and I have never played a solo show there so maybe this is something you all would enjoy?
Let me know what you think please! Write to me here or tweet if you prefer. And of course, there´s Facebook.
For now though, my touring plans take me to Germany (Live shows with Live Fire and a big TV show that I am really looking forward to), Bulgaria, Norway and Russia, among others so stay tuned here for info and updates.
Steve and I are planning a busy 2016 that will take me to a lot of places I haven´t been for a long time so I hope to see YOU somewhere and before very much longer.
