Legendary ex-vocalists of Iron Maiden, Paul Dianno and Blaze Bayley, performing together in Australia and New Zealand

November 12th, 2012

undefined

Hardline Media proudly presents Paul Dianno and Blaze Bayley – former vocalists of Iron Maiden – performing together for the first time ever in Australia and New Zealand. In a world exclusive, for their co-headlining sets both singers will be belting out only Iron Maiden songs – classic tracks from their respective albums with one of the biggest heavy metal bands in the world. This promises to be a must-see event for any fan of Iron Maiden and heavy metal!

The tour will also mark Blaze Bayley’s first time Down Under, taking himself and Di’Anno all across Australia (including regional NSW dates) and New Zealand in late November/early December. While Di’Anno has successfully toured Australasian shores previously, it will be his first performing solely Iron Maiden songs.

Both artists have released a wealth of their own successful solo material, but as a special treat for ‘Maiden’ fans, to make this tour special they have agreed to only perform Iron Maiden tracks. This means that punters can expect to hear Di’Anno-era classics such as ‘Phantom Of The Opera’, ‘Wrathchild’, ‘Running Free’, ‘Sanctuary’, and ‘Killers’, along with classic Blaze-era cuts such as ‘Sign Of The Cross’, ‘Futureal’, ‘Lord Of The Flies’, ‘Man On The Edge’, and many more. The majority of these songs are hardly ever played live anymore by Iron Maiden, so fans will have the rare opportunity to hear them performed by the legendary vocalists who first recorded them.

This will be a dual headlining tour – whoever goes on last each night will be determined by the toss of a coin before the show. Fans are encouraged to get there early so as not to miss a minute of this special event.

Iron Maiden are one of the biggest names in heavy metal and the music industry as a whole. As leaders of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement in the early eighties, they would go on to become one of the biggest and most successful heavy metal bands of all time, influencing countless acts that followed and selling over 100 million records worldwide. As the original singer of Iron Maiden, Paul Di’Anno’s unique and aggressive vocals featured on their first two ground-breaking albums – the self-titled debut (1980) and its follow-up ‘Killers’ (1981). Both releases are widely regarded as classics and have sold more than 20 million copies worldwide. When Di’Anno’s successor Bruce Dickinson left Iron Maiden in the early nineties, Wolfsbane vocalist Blaze Bayley was selected to front the band out of hundreds who auditioned. Blaze would record two albums with Iron Maiden – 1995’s ‘The X Factor’ and 1998’s ‘Virtual XI’ – helping to ensure Iron Maiden’s prominence during the nineties when heavy metal was at a low point.

Two legendary vocalists together in Australia and New Zealand for the first time performing NOTHING but Iron Maiden (with likely a few surprises – such as sharing songs – thrown in as well). This is a must-see event for all heavy metal and hard rock fans.

* Special, extremely limited VIP tickets are available. These will gain you entry to the show, a VIP laminate, a few goodies, as well as the once in a lifetime chance of meeting both Paul Di’anno and Blaze Bayley before the show – get photos, get stuff signed, have a chat!

See you there.

A TRIBUTE TO DEEP PURPLE’S MACHINE HEAD LANDS SEPTEMBER 25

August 16th, 2012

BE PREPARED TO GET RE-MACHINED

Re-machined - A TRIBUTE TO DEEP PURPLE’S MACHINE HEAD

Re-machined – A TRIBUTE TO DEEP PURPLE’S MACHINE HEAD


Eagle Records is delighted to announce the release of Re-Machined – A Tribute To Deep Purple’s Machine Head album on September 25 [MSRP $13.99 for CD, digital TBA].

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the release of this landmark album and in recognition of the influence of the band, and of Machine Head in particular. Some of rock music’s biggest names have each contributed a version of their favorite track on the album to create Re-Machined – A Tribute To Deep Purple’s Machine Head.

Re-Machined features specially recorded tracks from Jimmy Barnes & Joe Bonamassa, Black Label Society, Chickenfoot, former Deep Purple Mk III member Glenn Hughes with Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iron Maiden, the “supergroup” Kings Of Chaos (featuring Joe Elliott, Steve Stevens, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum), Metallica, Carlos Santana & Jacoby Shaddix and Steve Vai.

There are two wildly differing versions of the album’s most famous track “Smoke On The Water”, one from guitar hero Carlos Santana with vocals by Jacoby Shaddix and one from alternative rockers Flaming Lips, and Metallica have contributed their own special take on “When A Blind Man Cries”, a track recorded at the “Machine Head” sessions but originally released as the B-side to “Never Before”.

Iron Maiden’s “Space Truckin’” cover was actually recorded back in 2006. Lead singer Bruce Dickinson explains, “Initially we didn’t think we’d be able to contribute anything due to our touring commitments. Then we remembered ‘Space Truckin’ which we’d recorded as a single B-side during our A Matter Of Life And Death album session, but never used. However now, thanks to Kevin Shirley’s remixing skills, we’re able to include it on Re-Machined

Initially released as a limited edition Classic Rock “fanpack” on September 3, this is a truly unique release that will appeal to rock fans everywhere.

Iron Maiden: Maiden England Tour with Alice Cooper – Prudential Center, New Jersey July 2 2012

August 12th, 2012



Review and pics by Infamousbutcher

Iron Maiden is at it again, recreating another classic tour from the 80s for the fans. In 2005, Maiden did the Eddie Rips Up The World Tour, focusing on their first four albums. Then in 2008, they focused on the 80s and called the tour Somewhere Back in Time. Now in 2012 Maiden is doing the Maiden England Tour, emulating the Seventh Son of a Seventh Son tour from 1988. I love this kind of stuff, reliving the old glory days when you first discovered a band; like when Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax revisited the Clash of the Titans tour in 2010. As an added bonus, shock rock living legend Alice Cooper is opening for Maiden on this tour! Are you kidding me? How f&^king awesome is that?!?

METAL HAMMER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS 2012

July 28th, 2012

METAL HAMMER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS 2012

Review by Hal Sinden

Photography by Ashlinn Nash



Despite its reputation for a tricky commute and arguably eyesore appearance (don’t confuse familiarity with satisfaction, fellow Londoners), the O2 Arena is a fantastic venue space for the Golden Gods and ample notice that metal is still as healthy as it ever was, showing no signs of bowing to austerity measures.

What would we do without this yearly event? 

Well, for a start we’d probably have healthier livers and better hearing in our later years, however many would also be deprived of their chance to postpone their Download hangovers or simply be given a reason to wash off this year’s festival mud and watch some of the scene’s glitterati forget about their day jobs for an evening.  Metal Hammer Magazine’s annual schmoozefest is upon us, and with it a dazzling array of leather, lip gloss & limp fringes.

IRON MAIDEN – “The Ultimate Unauthorized History Of The Beast” by Neil Daniels

May 19th, 2012
JAWBONE BOOKS (UK) / VOYAGEUR PRESS (USA). ISBN: 978-1-908279-23-1. Pages: 224. Published: June 2012

JAWBONE BOOKS (UK) / VOYAGEUR PRESS (USA). ISBN: 978-1-908279-23-1. Pages: 224. Published: June 2012

Finally, a glorious, illustrated celebration of one of the most successful rock bands of all time!

Formed in east London in 1975, Iron Maiden went on to become one of the most successful rock acts in history. With more than 85 million album sales to their credit, the legendary metal band remains hugely popular worldwide: Their 2010 album, The Final Frontier , debuted at #1 in 30 countries and received unanimous critical praise.

In this, the first complete illustrated treatment of Iron Maiden, a roster of respected heavy metal journalists including Ian Christe, Martin Popoff, Mick Wall, Daniel Bukszpan, and more relate the band’s history, analyse their recordings, and provide a complete discography.

The stories behind the band’s formation, recordings, and tours, are complemented with more than 400 images, including live performance and candid off-stage photographs, as well as memorabilia, gig posters, T-shirts, backstage passes, buttons, and tickets. And with Derek Riggs (the man behind Iron Maiden’s iconic mascot, Eddie) having created the book’s exclusive cover art, this really is a must for any serious Iron Maiden collector.

Few bands have as widespread global appeal as Iron Maiden. Here is the book that gives that history its just treatment.

Author Bio

Neil Daniels has written about classic rock and heavy metal for a wide range of magazines, fanzines, and websites. He had more than 10 books published between 2007 and 2011, including titles on Judas Priest, Robert Plant, Bon Jovi, and Journey. His reviews, articles, and interviews have appeared in The Guardian , Rock Sound, Record Collector and myriad other publications and websites.

IRON MAIDEN Post “Blood Brothers” Clip From EN VIVO!

March 13th, 2012
Iron Maiden "En Vivo!

Iron Maiden "En Vivo!

Iron Maiden have just released a live clip of the song “Blood Brothers” which is taken from their upcoming EN VIVO! live release. EN VIVO! features the bands live performance on April 10th, 2011 in front of over 50,000 ecstatic fans at the Estadio Nacional, Santiago, during the Round The World In 66 Days leg of The Final Frontier World Tour, and captures a magnificent performance by the band, ardently embraced by the legendary Latino passion and energy of their Chilean fans.

With spectacular stage backdrops, dynamic musicianship and a literally jaw-dropping appearance by Eddie, this live show encapsulates to perfection the heart and soul of Iron Maiden 2011. Bass player and founding member Steve Harris comments, “For The Final Frontier Tour, it was really important to me that we filmed in South America as we’re always so overwhelmed by the fans reaction when we go to that part of the world and I wanted to reflect that in the filming. After much consideration, we chose the Santiago show as we felt it was one of our best performances of the entire tour and to play at the prestigious Estadio Nacional was a landmark moment for us. For reasons known to our fans,  it took a long time before we got to play our first show in Chile, and once we did get to play a show, the response was so phenomenal we just had to keep coming back, and it’s got better and better each time!”

The concert was filmed digitally using 22 HD cameras and an octocam (a flying camera which captures aerial crowd scenes), recorded in both stereo and 5.1 audio and mixed by Maiden’s longstanding producer, Kevin “Caveman” Shirley, all of which serves to accentuate the incredible atmosphere of this compelling performance. Extensive use is made of split screens so fans can follow the individual members more closely, and the set list moves seamlessly between songs from Maiden’s most recent studio album, 2010’s The Final Frontier, through to classic fan favorites via the band’s vast and varied catalogue (full set listing below).Disc two of the DVD set is a bonus disc containing an 88-minute documentary, Behind The Beast. This is also an entirely in-house production by Maiden’s own Krew, led by Andy Matthews, and is intended as an interesting and revealing high quality “home movie” for their fans to see how Iron Maiden put on a tour and what goes on behind the scenes at a show. It describes the extraordinary story of one of the most acclaimed and ambitious touring shows in the world. It illustrates the day-to-day life and complex tasks of the Maiden Killer Krew and the other characters behind the scenes. The expertise and experience, the problem-solving and successes, the sheer scale and immense difficulties of the undertaking come to life through the day-to-day coverage of the tour and the background work of the crews in sound, lighting, carpentry, production and set design. As well as interviews with the Iron Maiden crew, it interweaves anecdotes from the band and their fans, and includes footage of the live show in this comprehensive guide to the intricacies of staging massive, live stadium shows around the world out of the belly of a Boeing 757. The bonus disc also contains an extended version of the promo video “Satellite 15…The Final Frontier,” a video about the making of “Satellite 15…The Final Frontier” plus the opening video sequence to The Final Frontier World Tour.In addition to the Blu-ray™, the 2-DVD set will initially be available as a Limited Edition double DVD in a Collectors’ Steel Book Case and Double Vinyl Picture Disc. As well as a traditional 2-CD soundtrack album, EN VIVO! will also be available as a digital download audio album and digital download video.

EN VIVO! will be released on March 26th on Blu-Ray, 2DVD Set, and double soundtrack album. The 2 LP picture disc vinyl will be released on 4/10.

Iron Maiden announce “Maiden England World Tour” with extensive dates in North America this summer

February 15th, 2012

Very Special Guest Alice Cooper to July 21, Coheed and Cambria after July 21.

IRON MAIDEN Announce "Maiden England World Tour"

IRON MAIDEN Announce "Maiden England World Tour"

Following the massively successful Final Frontier World Tour 2010-11, IRON MAIDEN are back on the road this summer with a series of Arena, Amphitheatre and Festival shows in the U.S.A. and Canada, opening in Charlotte, NC, U.S.A. on June 21, and finishing in Houston, TX, on Aug 18 (dates listed below), to be followed by further dates around the World in 2013. The MAIDEN ENGLAND WORLD TOUR will closely mirror, in terms of production and content, the original 1988 concert video of the same name, shot on the “Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son Tour”. This opening section of the World Tour is the band’s most extensive visit to North America for many years and includes a number of cities the band have not played in a very long time, such as Charlotte, Atlanta, Buffalo, Indianapolis and Salt Lake City.

In most venues, tickets will go on sale on March 2 and 3 but watch this site or check local venue information for fuller details. Fan Club members should check out ironmaiden.com for exclusive first day ticket presales and contest to be ‘First To The Barrier’.

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 (L.A) 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 re-visited – with many other surprises! Our intention is to play about two thirds of the original track list of Maiden England (shown below*), 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”.

Iron Maiden are delighted to announce that the extraordinary and legendary Alice Cooper will be their Very Special Guest on all shows up to July 21. After that date, Special Guest will be Coheed and Cambria, the inspiring, cutting edge band from New York.

Iron Maiden continue to be actively dedicated to ensuring their fans always have full access to the best possible tickets in the fairest possible way. Manager Rod Smallwood comments:

“We are trying to ensure that our fans get the tickets they want in the prime positions without paying over the odds to ticket scalpers. Maiden get infuriated with the way fans sometimes have to pay more than the ticket price to get good positions at our shows. So we will, wherever possible (Festivals excluded), with the assistance of the Promoters, arrange a paperless ticketing system at least for the front sections to try to eliminate as much of the ticket scalping and exchanges as we can. We put this into practice on our North American Tour in 2010; it worked well and we received many positive comments back from our fans, so we intend to increase this where feasible. With paperless ticketing, only those who actually pay initially for the tickets will get into the show so scalping is generally avoided (please see the comments from Ticketmaster below). We are also doing everything we can to avoid any drain of prime tickets going to the Secondary Ticketing sites which we feel make unfair profits from music fans.

As we consider all our fans to be VIPs, no tickets will be held specifically for VIP use. At some venues, the Promoter may provide the option for fans to pay extra for “VIP Parking”, early access, access to “VIP Bar” etc. But these will be purely optional for ticket holders only and will not be tied to ticket locations – the ability to get the best tickets should be the same for everybody outside of the usual presales.

Finally, we are of course once again arranging exclusive ticket pre-sales for our fan club members so they can be quick off the mark for great tickets and will also continue to run the contest in appropriate venues for fan club members so they can be ‘First To The Barrier’ prior to the show. We hope that these measures will help our fans as much as possible and ask that they keep checking for details on our website.”

TICKETMASTER comments:
Where possible the North American Iron Maiden shows will operate a paperless ticket policy. Select tickets will be sold via Ticketmaster’s Paperless Ticket delivery, which means fans will not receive a physical concert ticket for their entry into the event. Buying paperless helps ensure fans have secure and convenient access to event tickets at the intended original sale price. On the day of show, concert goers just need to bring the credit card they used for the ticket purchase and a government-issued photo ID to the concert. All members of the ticket purchaser’s party must be present at the same time to enter the venue. The venue’s ticket usher will swipe their credit card upon entry and present each person in their party with seat locator slips for quick access into the show. To purchase paperless tickets or for more information, fans should visit www.ticketmaster.com/paperless or call the Ticketmaster charge-by-phone number at 1-800-745-3000.

IRON MAIDEN To Release EN VIVO! On March 27th

January 31st, 2012
IRON MAIDEN To Release 'En Vivo!' Concert Blu-Ray, Two-DVD Set And Double Soundtrack Album

IRON MAIDEN To Release 'En Vivo!' Concert Blu-Ray, Two-DVD Set And Double Soundtrack Album

Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) is proud to announce the release of “EN VIVO!,” a new live IRON MAIDEN Blu-ray™, 2-DVDSet and double soundtrack album, on Tuesday, March 27, in the U.S. (available internationally, Monday, March 26).

Iron Maiden @ O2 Arena

Do Iron Maiden really need an introduction? Ok, being my favourite band, I’m slightly biased, but with an army of devotees bordering religious, a whopping 15 studio albums, and 36 years of learning the ropes behind them, it’s not just me who whispers their name with holy credentials…

But why ARE Maiden so worshiped? By the end of tonight, London’s O2 Arena might be one spike closer inside the Iron Maiden herself, to decoding their magic.

Iron Maiden – St. Pete Times Forum / Tampa, Florida. April 17, 2011

Iron Maiden

St. Pete Times Forum / Tampa, Florida

April 17, 2011




By Gueniviere

There was no telling what to expect coming into Tampa Bay (from still-cold Chicago) on an early Sunday afternoon for the Maiden gig at the St. Pete Times Forum.  I’d last seen them play early in August, 2010, at the Sonisphere festival in Knebworth, England, only a few months before – but, with the many dates the band had played since – throughout Asia, Australia, South America, and more, it just seemed like more than that long ago …

IRON MAIDEN – Barricade Collapse Forces Cancellation Of Rio de Janeiro Show; Video Available

March 28th, 2011

IRON MAIDEN’s March 27th show at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was cancelled when the audience barricade set up in front of the stage collapsed during the first song of the night, ‘Satellite 15 … The Final Frontier’. Video footage of frontman Bruce Dickinson asking the fans to step back from the stage once he’d noticed the collapse can be seen below.

According to a report from Brazil’s Terra.com, the band stopped playing and Dickinson explained that the band would return to the stage once the barricade had been repaired. After 20 minutes, the crowd began losing its patience and Dickinson then returned to the stage to inform the audience that the show had to be cancelled.

He also informed the fans that Iron Maiden would play the HSBC Arena (March 28th) at the same time to make up for the cancellation. Footage of Dickinson addressing the crowd can be viewed below.
