IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson said, ďThis Summer's Maiden touring is based on the recent ďEarly DaysĒ DVD and all the songs we do at Ozzfest will be from our first four albums - 'Iron Maiden', 'Killers', 'Number of the Beast' and 'Piece of Mind'. We will be bringing over our full European show, naturally including as special guest Eddie in various appropriate guises!! The stage sets, production and backdrops will recreate aspects of the shows on the tours around those albums - only biggerÖ much bigger!!! We donít know if anyone has done anything like this before but we think itís something the fans will really appreciate both in the choice of songs and in the production values.Ē
