VIDEO: Iron Maiden – US East Coast road report

Iron Maiden are on the road this summer as they bring their "Maiden England World Tour" to fans across North America.

The tour closely mirrors, 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.”

The North American trek will hit more than 30 cities before it wraps in Houston, TX. on August 18.

Maiden have posted a US East Coast report from the road, featuring footage and interviews with band and crew members.

“It’s rocking along,” says singer Bruce Dickinson. “It’s an unrelenting set and it goes… 2 hours…just like that.”

“I think the stage show is probably one of the best kind of shows we’ve had, since I’ve been with the band, anyhow,” adds guitarist Janick Gers. “It’s absolutely enormous. You don’t notice it when you’re on the stage ‘cuz it’s happening around you – you’re kind of in the eye of the storm, as it were.”
