July – October 1999

tourbook11b_edhunter Ed_Huntour

Not long after the amazing announcement that BruceDickinson and Adrian Smith would rejoin Iron Maiden the new 6-memberline up went on the road again in an uncharacteristically short tour insupport of their compilation album and computer game Ed Hunter. It wasalso a chance to re-introduce the almost "classic" line up of the bandto their legions of fans. Sadly, Adrian Smith had to miss some of theshows due to the death of his father, and the band omitted 'Stranger InA Strange Land' from the set because Janick didn't have time to learnAdrian's solo. After Adrian did return, they decided to continue onwithout playing 'Stranger...' because they felt it made the entire setmove better. Moreover, some shows had to be cancelled on the US Westcoast due to an onstage accident in Los Angeles where Dave Murray brokea finger. The band sounded in top form and their three-guitar onslaughtprovided some interesting twists to some of the songs. The return ofBruce and Adrian seemed to galvanise the world, and the Ed Hunter Tourgenerated much more media attention and fan excitement than any of thethe previous tours had. Bruce promised that the following album andtour would pave the way for the return to glory for heavy metal music,a feeling that seemed to be in the air during 1999.

Opening bands for this tour were: Monster Magnet, Soulfly and Puya for North America, and Megadeth for Europe
