Iron Maiden: `Maiden England World Tour` Rehearsals Footage


A new three-minute video clip featuring footage from Iron Maiden's rehearsal sessions for the "Maiden England World Tour" can be seen below.

"Maiden England" marks the third chapter in the history of Iron Maiden , a journey which began in 2004 with "The Early Days" DVD and subsequent 2005 "Early Days Tour". Part two followed in 2008 with the"Live After Death" DVD - the seminal 1984 concert recorded at Long Beach Arena in California during the "World Slavery Tour" - and the band embarking on their groundbreaking "Somewhere Back In Time World Tour 2008/9", which saw them play to over two million fans in almost 40 countries.

Comments vocalist Bruce Dickinson: "We have great fun playing the history of Maiden tours because it gives us an opportunity between new albums to go out and play songs from our earlier catalogue. It's always fantastic seeing the crowd reaction from a new generation of fans who have never experienced some of these tracks performed live before, and of course we know our longstanding fans will enjoy seeing the original'Seventh Son Tour' revisited — with many other surprises! Our intention is to play about two thirds of the original track list of 'Maiden England', including some songs we have not played live in a very,very long time, plus other favourites we just know the fans are going to want to hear! We always try to give our fans a great show musically, but we have always tried to make it as entertaining and memorable an experience as we can visually. And we all feel this show is going to do that splendidly! We can't wait to get started in Charlotte."


There are no plans for a new studio album yet, according to Adrian Smith. New interview available.
