The Mandrake Project will be Dickinson’s seventh solo album and his first since Tyranny Of Souls in 2005.
Dickinson explains, “This album has been a very personal journey for me and I am extremely proud of it. Roy Z and I have been planning, writing and recording it for years, and I am very excited for people to finally hear it. I’m even more excited at the prospect of getting out on the road with this amazing band that we have put together, to be able to bring it to life. We’re planning to play as many shows as we can in as many places as possible, for as many people as we can!

Hello Boys and Girls,
I hope this message finds you all well!
The reason I'm writing to you all today is to let you know of a very serious health problem that I have been through. In January I had a stroke, thank the Lord it was a minor one referred to as a TIA. It left me paralyzed on my right side from my shoulder on down, of course I was very worried that my career was over but with the love and support from my wife, Rebecca and family, my doctors, especially Julie my OT (Occupational Therapist), and my Maiden family I was able to bounce back to somewhere near 70% recovered. After 10 weeks of intense therapy it was almost time to start rehearsals for our tour. I feel it's important to let you know about this now instead of earlier as I was mainly concerned with doing my job and concentrating on getting back to 100% fitness. I'm not there yet but by the grace of God I'm getting better and stronger as the weeks go by.
Thank you all for a most wonderful and magical tour so far, you have all been so amazing.
Well that's it from me. God bless you all, stay safe and well and I look forward to seeing you all somewhere in time. :-) :-)
Manager Rod Smallwood adds -“The rest of the band and l think that what Nicko has been able to achieve since his stroke shows incredible belief and willpower and we are all very proud of him. With this new and musically very complex set to learn ahead of him, he just got his head down and concentrated on recovery. We honestly did not know if he would be able to play a whole show until band rehearsals started in May and there was just so much support for him from the band and then genuine relief for all when we saw he was going to be able to do it!”
"Nicko being Nicko he did not want to make a fuss and cause any distraction to the tour at the time but, now that he is sure he will soon get there, he thought you fans should know straight from him rather than by any rumours!"
"We are all of course delighted he battled through this so well and look forward to many more tours together starting with the three Western Canada shows and Power Trip in California coming up in a couple of months time. We can’t wait! This tour is that good!”
Last night Iron Maiden had started their Future past tour in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Trooper Beer, the hugely successful and award-winning beer produced in collaboration between British music icons Iron Maiden and Stockport-based Robinsons Brewery, celebrates its 10th birthday this year on Tuesday 9th May, 2023.
To celebrate the milestone, and the achievement of over 35 million pints sold worldwide, a brand new 10% ABV Trooper X Imperial Stout has been created by Bruce Dickinson and the Robinsons team. Each 660ml bottle of Trooper X comes in a presentation box and will be available to order online from IronMaiden.com and Drinks Aisle from 9th May.
The new brew has again been created by Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce, alongside Robinsons’ Head Brewer Martyn Weeks.
Martyn said: “Trooper X is packed full of roasted malt flavours which perfectly balance the complex and delicious aromas. This is the ultimate super smooth sharing beer which, if you can resist drinking straight away, will mature in the bottle and get even better with age. “
In further celebrations, the original Trooper Beer, which kickstarted Iron Maiden’s foray into the brewing world ten years ago, will feature a special anniversary label to mark the occasion.
Launched in 2013, the 4.7% ABV Premium Ale has proved a runaway success around the world and is now firmly established as one of the leading British ales globally, being exported to 68 countries worldwide.
Trooper was recently awarded a further Gold Medal by the British Bottlers’ Institute, adding to awards at the World Beer Awards, Global Beer Masters and International Beer Challenge, making a total of 18 awards for Trooper Original to date and 23 across the Trooper family of beers.
Along with the core beers – Trooper Original and Trooper IPA – the Trooper family includes a range of seasonal and limited edition beers that have joined the charge over the last ten years, including popular brews such as Fear of The Dark stout, Sun And Steel sake-infused pilsner, Red N’ Black porter, Trooper 666 ESB, Hallowed Belgian-style beer, as well as annual Day Of The Dead special edition versions. Trooper X Imperial Stout joins this growing stable.
Bruce Dickinson has also taken the Trooper brand worldwide, identifying like-minded brewers overseas who can bring unique local versions of Trooper to the legions of Iron Maiden fans and Trooper drinkers around the world. Iron Maiden have partnered with Brewdog in the US to produce Hellcat, an IPL; Nils Oscar in Sweden to produce a local Trooper as well as Running Free, the first zero alcohol Trooper; Crew Republic in Germany with Trooper Progressive Lager; Bodebrown in Brazil with a local Trooper and Aces High lager; and Nomad in Australia to produce Trooper XPL.
Bruce Dickinson says: “I’m immensely proud that Trooper has reached this milestone. To get to 10 years is a brilliant achievement, and I’m having a great time working with Robinsons and our partners around the world coming up with some fantastic beers! Thanks to our fans, Trooper has become a permanent feature with beer lovers around the world, and it’s still growing.
“We are delighted to add ‘Trooper X’ to the roster and there’ll be more beers to come as our Trooper family continues to expand and provide new beers and choices to our fans everywhere.”
Oliver Robinson, Managing Director of Robinsons said: “Our collaboration with Iron Maiden and TROOPER continues to go from strength to strength each year. When we started brewing with Bruce in 2013, I don’t think any of us could have anticipated the success of TROOPER. Fast-forward 10 years and with over 8 limited edition beers, 35 million pints sold worldwide, and drinkers enjoying TROOPER in over 68 countries worldwide we’re incredibly proud to have TROOPER as part of the Robinsons family.”

- Steve Harris
Piece of Mind also marks the debut for Nicko McBrain with the band and what would become the iconic Iron Maiden line-up.
The Bulgarian Iron Maiden fan club will honor the 40th anniversary with a special concert by the tribute band RAISING HELL. The event will be on April 8 (Saturday) in the capital's Live & Loud club.

This morning we woke up with a message that our Facebook page has been removed.
Without warning, without any explanation, our page no longer exists.
Almost 13 years and over 6.5k followers...
The only message we see is that our page does NOT violate Facebook Community Standards and at the same time it is blocked for Violation of Facebook Community Standards!. (WHAT?!)
We have submitted an objection and are currently awaiting the decision.
To be honest, we don't have high expectations, and if our page is closed for good, we most likely won't create a new one.
For all 15 years as a fan club, we have been honest and followed the rules We did everything for the sake of our favorite band. The Facebook page was just a way for us to be closer to each other. And apparently this violates Facebook's community standards.
Fortunately, months ago we resurrected our forum and along with the website will remain the places where we will be active.
SEЕ YOU SOON
UP THE IRONS !!!
Royal Mail today reveals images of 12 new Special Stamps celebrating one of the most legendary rock bands of all time, Iron Maiden.
The main stamp set celebrates Iron Maiden’s live performances, featuring a selection of photos from their world-wide tours across the years, internationally and at home - and feature all current members of the band.
Images range from the 1980s until 2018 and show:
- Steve Harris in Vancouver, June 2010
- Bruce Dickinson at Hammersmith, Odeon, London, May 1983
- Dave Murray, Adrian Smith and Steve Harris in Pamplona, September 1988
- Nicko McBrain in Quito, March 2009
- Dave Murray, Bruce Dickinson and Janick Gers in Rio de Janeiro, January 2001
- Adrian Smith and Steve Harris in Helsinki, May 2018
- Iron Maiden at Twickenham Stadium, London, July 2008
- Bruce Dickinson sword fighting with Eddie in Birmingham, August 2018
A further four stamps pay homage to the band’s long-serving mascot and pop-cultural icon in his own right, Eddie, with his own miniature sheet. The stamps show four notorious Eddie artworks, including the latest addition featuring
Eddie as a samurai warrior from the recent Senjutsu album.
Shown on the stamps are:
- ‘Iron Maiden’ Eddie: The stare that started it all. Born in 1980 – on the cover of the band’s debut album
- ‘The Trooper’ Eddie: The unforgettable artwork for one of Iron Maiden’s greatest hit singles and, more recently, the logo for their award-winning beer
- ‘Aces High’ Eddie: Reimagined as a fighter pilot for a song honouring the RAF servicemen who defended Britain during the Second World War
- ‘Senjutsu’ Eddie: Samurais, feudal Japan and flashing blades inspired this katana-wielding warrior, from the band’s most recent album
The backdrop of the miniature sheet is taken from Iron Maiden’s first official live album, Live After Death (1985).
Founded in east London in the mid-1970s by songwriter and bassist Steve Harris, Iron Maiden’s decades-spanning career has made them one of the most revered and influential bands of all time. With over 100 million record sales, almost 2,500 live performances across 64 countries and 17 studio albums – including their latest, Senjutsu, released in 2021 – Iron Maiden have remained fearlessly creative and dedicated to their legions of fans for almost half a century.
Iron Maiden founder member and bassist, Steve Harris comments: “We were all absolutely astounded – in a good way! - when we heard first about the commemorative project, and equally pretty much speechless when we saw the stamps for the very first time. They look superb and I think they really capture the essence and energy of Maiden. We’re all very proud that Royal Mail has chosen to honour the band’s legacy like this and we know our fans will feel the same way,”
Iron Maiden manager, Rod Smallwood adds: “As a band who have never played by anyone else’s rules for over 40 years, it’s very gratifying to see them honoured in their home country in this way. We’re proud to show how these six band members are still appealing to more and more fans every year with their music and their legendary shows - which I think these stamps really capture well. It’s also fantastic that Eddie has been honoured too – it’s incredible to think that Her Majesty, may she rest in peace, saw these and lent her iconic silhouette to them too.”
David Gold, Director of External Public Affairs & Policy, Royal Mail, said: “Few bands in the history of rock music can be called bona fide rock legends – but Iron Maiden are just that – and more. With legions of devoted fans of all ages and from every corner of the globe, not only have they changed the way rock music sounds, but they have also changed the way it looks. We fully expect their fans will love these stamps as much as we do.”
Royal Mail collaborated closely with the band members and Phantom Music Management Ltd on the stamp issue.
The band will be back on the road in 2023 with their brand new, The Future Past tour, with dates across the UK and Europe.
The stamps are available to pre-order from today (5 January) at www.royalmail.com/ironmaiden and by phone on 03457 641 641.
The stamps go on general sale from 12 January 2023 with a Presentation Pack containing all 12 stamps priced at £17.70.
Iron Maiden will be bringing a new tour to Europe in the Summer of 2023 including arena shows in the UK & Ireland. The Future Past Tour will feature previously unperformed songs from the band’s most recent studio album, Senjutsu along with a focus on 1986’s iconic Somewhere In Time record, plus other classic cuts.
The first shows to be announced are as follows:
13 Tauron Arena, Krakow, POLAND - (On sale Fri Oct 14)
19 Hallenstadion, Zurich, SWITZERLAND - (On sale Thu Oct 13)
24 3Arena, Dublin, IRELAND - (On sale Fri Oct 14)

Further European dates for The Future Past Tour will be announced later. Keep up to date here.
Fan Club Presales begin Tuesday 11th October. Details to be added shortly.
Support for The Future Past Tour will be announced at a later date. Trooper VIP will be available at selected UK and European dates.
Steve Harris says,
“Following the release of our latest album, Senjutsu, we updated the current Legacy of the Beast Tour a little by opening the show with the first 3 songs from it, with the Japanese Palace stage set. As it doesn’t make a lot of sense to repeat this for a Senjutsu album tour, we thought about other options and we’ve decided to revisit Somewhere In Time as that tour didn’t feature in the various retrospective history tours we’ve played over the years. They were based on our 80’s concert videos and sadly we did not film that tour (blame the manager!!). We have had lots of requests from fans over the years for many tracks on it so we are now going to play them, plus of course a few others we know you will like! It will also be particularly satisfying to finally get to play some of the more epic tracks on Senjutsu, it's been a long wait! 2023 is going to be an exciting time and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone again in the UK, Ireland and around Europe”.
Manager, Rod Smallwood adds,
“This combination of the two albums we feel is very exciting. We know fans want to hear those epic cuts on Senjutsu for the first time live and we think that by combining it with an iconic album like Somewhere In Time it will make for another really special tour for fans old and new! Of course, for a new album tour in Europe and the UK we will go back largely to the relative intimacy of arenas and we know fans will be very happy about that too!”
The Bulgarian IRON MAIDEN fan club will celebrate its 15th anniversary with a concert of the Bulgarian tribute band RAISING HELL. The band has prepared a completely new setlist, and this time the emphasis will be on the newer songs of IRON MAIDEN. The event will be on October 15 at Club Live & Loud. Doors: 21:00, entrance BGN 10.
For more information, follow the Facebook event.
Warner Music (BMG for the USA) are delighted to announce the release of a commemorative triple black vinyl album in honour of the 40th Anniversary of IRON MAIDEN’s seminal third album, The Number Of The Beast, which was also the first to feature Bruce Dickinson on vocals and was to become the record which catapulted the band to international stardom. Included in the new vinyl package is Beast Over Hammersmith - available now officially for the very first time on vinyl - featuring the live concert from March 1982’s now legendary Hammersmith Odeon London show from the Beast On The Road World Tour. Recorded only days before the release of The Number Of The Beast album, its remarkable to think these now classic songs at that time were still brand new, unfamiliar and being heard live by fans for the very first time. A real piece of history in the making.
The tracklisting is:
Disc 1 – The Number Of The Beast
- Children Of The Damned
- The Prisoner
- 22 Acacia Avenue
- The Number Of The Beast
- Run To The Hills
- Total Eclipse*
- Hallowed Be Thy Name
*alternative tracklisting to original TNOTB vinyl release. Total Eclipse replaces Gangland
Disc 2 – Beast Over Hammersmith
- Murders In The Rue Morgue
- Run To The Hills
- Children of The Damned
- The Number Of The Beast
- Another Life
- 22 Acacia Avenue
- Total Eclipse
Disc 3 – Beast Over Hammersmith
- The Prisoner
- Hallowed Be Thy Name
- Phantom Of The Opera
- Iron Maiden
- Running Free
The package features exclusive liner notes written by Maiden founder and bassist Steve Harris as well as restored and expanded artwork taken from the CD format of Beast Over Hammersmith, previously only available in the Limited Edition Eddie’s Archive boxset originally released in 2002.
Steve Harris comments,
“On this vinyl release we get the chance to put Total Eclipse in its rightful spot on the album for the first time. The reason it didn’t make it in the first place was that it was all a mad rush when we were finishing the record and we had to get the Run to the Hills single out before the tour and we basically had to pick a B-side and it was between Gangland and Total Eclipse and we just picked the wrong one, really! I think Total Eclipse is a stronger song and the album would have been stronger if it had been on there.”
It’s been 6 years since we decided to shut down our forums. It was a hard decision because it was a place where it all begun. The main reason for this decision was the existence of all social media channels and Facebook in particular where most of the discussion were happening. The forum was basically dead before we switched it off. In recent years, however, there is a tendency for specialized forum discussions to be popular again. Facebook’s policy for banning pages groups and users for no reason is a major factor for that.
So.. Our forum is back online! We don’t care how much activity will be there, as it’s our own place!

IRON MAIDEN have added six more European dates to their Legacy Of The Beast 2022 Tour, including Arena Armeec, Sofia on 13 July. Tickets go on sale 6 December at 10am at ticketstation.bg. As always there will be an exclusive pre-sale for Iron Maiden fan club members. Special Guests at the Bulgarian show will be Lord Of The Lost.
The show has already been seen by almost two million people across the globe, being hailed by fans and media alike as the most extravagant and visually spectacular performance of the band’s career to date, with a decades-spanning set list of fan favourites and hits. The 2022 show will also include some songs from Maiden’s new studio album Senjutsu - which debuted at #1 in Bulgaria - being played live for the first time.
Iron Maiden Manager Rod Smallwood comments:
“Next summer we will finally get to play the huge European stadium tour for Legacy of the Beast originally set for 2020 and since moved twice! We are delighted to be able to add shows in some of the great cities of eastern Europe, including in the Ukraine where we have never played. We’ll be making a couple of changes to the production and setlist to include some songs from our new album Senjutsu and are making the 2022 version of Legacy Of The Beast even more exciting and spectacular than the acclaimed original show , but you can be sure that we will still be featuring all the “hits” and the key elements of the original tour like the Spitfire, Icarus, Hell, flamethrowers and pyro and the rest! But we will shake it up a bit and Trooper Eddie will have serious competition in a new Senjutsu “world” we are adding.”
Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson adds,
“We’re really looking forward to our return to Europe next year and its terrific that we are now able to add Sofia and the other shows in eastern Europe, great cities and great fans. I’m excited about the new additions to the stage production and we can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve got planned. The whole band has really enjoyed the Legacy tour and now we just can’t wait get back out on the road to play live, have fun and see everyone again!”
