Iron Maiden, the iconic metal band whose skeletal mascot, Eddie, adorned the denim jackets of scary older kids in the 80s, will be the subject of Stern Pinball Inc.’s next pinball machine. In the first images of the Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast pinball machine revealed today, Iron Maiden’s trademark fantasy metal aesthetic (pyramids, ghouls, demonic forces) appears to be the perfect match for a pinball machine.

im pro detail 17 1522127918015 1280w

Check out Stern’s Iron Maiden art, features, and layout in the exclusive image gallery below.

Iron Maiden is the latest in a series of rock ‘n’ roll and metal-themed machines from Stern, who previously released AC/DC, Metallica, KISS, and Aerosmith over the past decade. With original *extremely metal* art from rock poster artist Jeremy Packer, a.k.a. Zombie Yeti, who kicked off his pinball art career recently with Ghostbusters, and game design from world champion player Keith Elwin, new to pinball game design entirely, Iron Maiden represents fresh, new talent in an industry that is experiencing rapid growth.

Stern’s official description of Iron Maiden indicates that players will embody Eddie himself: “Players will immerse themselves in an interactive Iron Maiden universe transforming into various forms of Eddie, the band’s legendary mascot. Players, as Eddie, will embark on a quest to defeat the Beast and his minions across the Legacy of the Beast mobile game and comic book world.” This quest is not only conveyed by ramps and pop bumpers, but also by the LCD screen mounted on the backglass which, Stern’s Marketing Director Zach Sharpe tells IGN, will feature “Custom animation revolving around Eddie as he battles the beast. In the game, depending on the multiball or modes you are playing in, there are different variations of ‘Eddie’ to match up with the Iron Maiden song, tying the whole universe together.”

Speaking of songs, here’s the full track list of included Iron Maiden songs:

  • Aces High
  • 2 Minutes to Midnight
  • The Trooper
  • Wasted Years
  • Can I Play With Madness
  • Number of the Beast
  • Run to the Hills
  • Powerslave
  • Hallowed Be Thy Name
  • Flight of Icarus
  • Rime of the Ancient Mariner
  • Fear of the Dark

As has become standard for all pinball machines this century, there are several models of Iron Maiden to choose from. All models come with the following features:

  • Four flippers; two on the upper playfield for some cool-looking loop shots.
  • Metal and wireform ramps (not plastic!).
  • Center bullseye target with a ramp that launches the ball right up to it, kind of like Lord of the Rings.
  • Set of 3-bank drop targets -- everyone loves these.
  • Two spinners, one on the left that dumps you right into the pop bumpers.
  • Captive ball mechanism.
  • An insane shot to the left ramp through the pop bumpers.

The Premium and Limited Edition (500 made) versions contain some additional, fancy features which we don’t have pictures of yet… But here’s how Stern describes them:

Interactive sarcophagus ball lock.

  • Motorized secret tomb entrance.
  • Controlled middle pharaoh laser-cut metal ramp that raises to reveal the underworld scoop.
  • Dual sensing Newton ball (This is pinball firmly mounted on the playfield that, when hit, transfers energy to a captive ball behind it).
  • Two custom Eddie sculpts.

While the Limited Edition alone features the following:

  • Exclusive mirrored backglass.
  • Upgraded sound system featuring an improved speaker cabinet and high-quality JBL branded backbox speakers.

The MSRP for the Pro Model is $5,999, while the Premium Model will run you $7,599, and the Limited Edition Model a cool $8,999. Stern told IGN that they’ve already entered production for the Pro model of Iron Maiden with the LE to follow in April and the Premium after that, but you can order all three models now from dealers around the world.

Theatrical release: 17th April 2018 (Screening in selected UK cinemas - New cities are being added daily)

Special London screening: 11th April at Vue Cinema West End Including Live Q&A with Bruce.

Sarajevo in 1994 was a city under siege. Mortars and grenades rained down on the city, killing indiscriminately every day. Amongst the madness, would it be possible to persuade a global rock star to come and play a show for local fans?

Scream for Me Sarajevo is the amazing and astonishing story of the most unlikely of rock concerts, performed by Bruce Dickinson and his band Skunkworks in 1994, in the midst of the Siege of Sarajevo. This is a film about extraordinary people defying the horrors of war, and the musicians who risked their lives to play a show for them.

Featuring footage from the historic gig, the film also meets those that made it to the show and made the show happen; determined to keep living their lives despite the atrocities going on around them. Interviews with the band, crew and security bring home the reality of the situation that was not only dangerous, it was barbaric.

“We weren’t protected, there was no plan and the bullets were real, but fuck it, we went anyway” said Bruce in his recent best-selling autobiography What Does This Button Do?, “The gig was immense, intense and probably the biggest show in the world at that moment for the audience and for us. That the world didn’t really know didn’t matter. It changed the way I viewed life, death and other human beings”.

As well as the striking documentary, there will be an exclusive Q&A with Bruce Dickinson from London that will accompany the film in cinemas globally.

British rock legends IRON MAIDEN and independent family brewers ROBINSONS announce the creation of LIGHT BRIGADE, a unique golden English ale with a 4.1% ABV. It has been developed in support of HELP FOR HEROES, the British charity that provides recovery and support for the Armed Forces community whose lives are affected by their service. 6p of each pint and 5p of each bottle sold will be donated to help the thousands of Servicemen and women who live with complex wounds and injuries – both physical and mental – and are looking to regain their purpose in life.

light brigade badge flat

HELP FOR HEROES met with ROBINSONS in the summer of 2017 to explore the possibility of launching a beer. ROBINSONS and IRON MAIDEN, who jointly launched TROOPER Beer almost five years ago and which has now sold over 20 million pints worldwide, were immediately enthusiastic about the idea. Indeed, the origin of TROOPER’s name, which comes from the classic IRON MAIDEN song, ‘The Trooper’, based on the Battle of Balaclava of 1854 in the Crimean War, reflects the band’s well-known interest in history.

As ever with the TROOPER range of beers, ROBINSONS’ Head Brewer, MARTYN WEEKS, and IRON MAIDEN lead vocalist and ale aficionado, BRUCE DICKINSON, teamed up to create the new and original beer, with the final tasting and approval taking place at HELP FOR HEROES’ Tedworth House Recovery Centre in Wiltshire, last Autumn.

LIGHT BRIGADE is designed as a session ale for beer and music fans everywhere. It will also be produced on a long-term basis, differentiating it from the other limited edition TROOPER beers: 666, Red ‘N Black, and Hallowed. In keeping with the Trooper brand, LIGHT BRIGADE’s original bottle label features IRON MAIDEN’s iconic mascot EDDIE on horseback in one of the uniforms of the LIGHT BRIGADE.

legacy of the beast tour

The concept for the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour was inspired by Maiden’s mobile game and comic book of the same name and the stage set design will feature a number of different but interlocking “worlds” with a set list covering a large selection of Eighties material with a handful of surprises from later albums to add diversity.

Maiden manager Rod Smallwood explains further,

“As our fans know, we’ve been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce and Adrian re-joined Maiden at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with “History/Hits” tours. We enjoy working this way for many reasons, not least because it gives the band a chance to play both new material and the older favourites which we know fans like to hear. It keeps things fresh, not just for the fans but for the band too.

“For this History/Hits tour we decided to base the theme around the Legacy Of The Beast name, which suits our purposes perfectly by giving us scope to get creative and have some fun, especially with Eddie! I don’t want to give too much away at the moment but we’re working on a number of different stage sets, all in keeping with the Maiden tradition and we hope to give our fans a fantastic experience when they come to see this very special show.”

Killswitch Engage will be Maiden’s Special Guest on headline European shows from May 26 to July 1 inclusive, and in the UK from July 31 to Aug 10 inclusive. Guests on other shows are currently being finalized and will be announced soon.

Most shows go on sale Friday 24th November, with some a little earlier - check the Tour Dates page for full info.
As always, there will be an exclusive presale for Fan Club members, starting Monday 20th.

The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter will premiere on YouTube on 11th November - as a thank you to all our loyal fans around the world we're streaming the entire concert film for free. Grab some beers, hook up your best speakers and enjoy The Book Of Souls tour from the comfort of your own sofa.

Produced by Tony Newton and Iron Maiden founder member and bass player Steve Harris, the album is based on this year’s set list and is a faithful record of the epic show, including six songs from ‘The Book Of Souls’, the band's most recent studio album, along with many other classics and fan favourites.

Steve comments, "We spent a huge amount of time working on this as I wanted to get it as close to the Maiden live experience as I possibly could and to represent our fans from different parts of the world. This meant listening to literally hours upon hours of tapes from every show, to select material and construct a sound that would run consistently across the whole album and capture the excitement of a new country like El Salvador alongside such regular favourites as Donington or Wacken.”

Maiden manager Rod Smallwood adds, "’The Book Of Souls World Tour’ was a huge undertaking, not least for Bruce who started the tour singing in public for the very first time since recovering from throat cancer. He also piloted Ed Force One, upgraded last year from a Boeing 757 to a 747 so we could go further and faster to visit some fantastic cities and fans all round the world. This year continued that excitement bringing us our most successful North American and UK tours ever. It was a very special tour in a great many ways so we felt we wanted to document it for both ourselves and for our fans. Steve has done an incredible job putting together this set from cities around the world and we’ve made sure the deluxe CD will be available in a matching book format to ‘The Book of Souls’ release.

"On top of all that the release will be celebrated by an event that is a Maiden first: a free live streaming premiere of the concert film, as a thank you to our loyal fans around the world. We hope that the global Maiden community will all enjoy coming together to watch this special event online. Many of you will be in it as there is footage from a whole host of the places we played on this momentous tour. ”

More details on how to take part in this one-off event will be published on shortly.

BMG will be reissuing Bruce's solo catalogue on vinyl worldwide on 27th October.

Bruce's six solo albums span from 1990 to 2005 and have been cut from the original masters for reissue on heavyweight, black 180g vinyl in artworked sleeves. Two of the titles ‘The Chemical Wedding’ and ‘Tyranny Of Souls are being made available for the first time ever on vinyl. The four previously available: ‘Tattooed Millionaire’, ‘Balls To Picasso’, ‘Skunkworks’ and ‘Accident Of Birth’ have been long out of print, with the latter two titles now expanded to double LPs for optimum sound.

As a special bonus, all six albums will also be available in a limited edition ‘Soloworks’ box, a must have for any collector.

From the stripped down, hard rock of Bruce’s debut solo album ‘Tattooed Millionaire’ (1990) and it’s heavier successor ‘Balls To Picasso’ (1994), through the cutting edge alt-rock of ‘Skunkworks’(1996) and the heavy metal celebration of ‘Accident Of Birth’ (1997) to the modern metal with a traditional heart of ‘The Chemical Wedding’ (1998) and final solo foray, ‘Tyranny Of Souls’ (2005), these six albums are an essential part of Bruce’s story outside of Maiden and, more importantly, some of the most vital and absorbing metal albums of the last three decades. Revisit them now at maximum volume.

Everyone who purchases the complete ’Soloworks’ box from '' will also receive a double-sided 24” x 36” poster.

Also available from Amazon UK, Amazon US as well as your favourite record shop.

The first ever official Iron Maiden comic book series is coming from leading US science fiction, fantasy and horror publishers Heavy Metal Publishing. The comic books are based on the band’s hit mobile role playing game, Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast, where players battle as Eddie across the many worlds of Iron Maiden’s discography, from the ancient sands of Powerslave to the far flung future of The Final Frontier.

Comprising five fantastic issues, with an overarching narrative and incredible illustrations, Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast is written by Llexi Leon and Ian Edginton, with art from Kevin J. West, Jason Gorder, and Santi Casas. The first issue goes on sale worldwide from comic retailers everywhere on October 31st. See full details below.

The comic book series expands on the video game narrative. As dark forces conspire to corrupt the fabric of reality, Eddie’s immortal soul is shattered and strewn across the cosmos – leaving a weakened, primal Eddie to battle across space and time facing off against the twisted legions of The Beast, seeking out the lost shards of his soul, and bringing order to the realms. With each victory, and with the aid of old friends, Eddie will restore his fearsome powers as he draws ever closer to facing the Unholy foe behind his fall… and thwarting a plot to unravel all of Creation!

Jeff Krelitz, CEO of Heavy Metal says, “As a lifelong fan of Iron Maiden, it is a privilege to publish the first official comic giving a narrative to their iconic mascot, Eddie. Heavy Metal’s near half-century-long history of either working with or launching the careers of only the most accomplished artists continues here with the amazing team Iron Maiden has working on this series”

Llexi Leon, Interactive Creative Director at Phantom Music Management says, "After 40 years of unbridled creativity, innovation, and attitude, Heavy Metal has always been a home to the greatest talent in sequential storytelling and fantasy art. With a natural affiliation to the heavy music genre, it's a nexus point for counter culture and alternative arts. I can think of no better partner to explore Iron Maiden's Mythology and expand the Legacy Of The Beast!"

HarperNonFiction will publish “What Does This Button Do” on October 19th. For the first time ever, Bruce shares his recollections of childhood and school days, joining Maiden, his solo career, aviation, his recent tongue cancer and much more. In typical Bruce style, this book was written exhaustively in longhand, filling seven A4 notebooks, which he has been working on meticulously whilst out on the road during The Book Of Souls World Tour.

The book will be released internationally with local language versions being made available too.

As we let Eddie out of his cage for the final leg of The Book of Souls World tour, his digital doppelganger makes a debut in Legacy of the Beast.

lotb bos mayan arena1000

The techno-bods over at Legacy of The Beast HQ have been working hard on an epic Mayan-themed battle arena, where your squad of characters can do battle with other players to climb the global leader-boards and claim unique in-game prizes.
The new arena is closely based on the TBOS stage set's ancient pyramids and stone statues, with the whole thing taking months to create. The Killer Krew would like to point out that they can knock the real deal up in a few hours, the LotB techies argue that their virtual version is faster to load-in and doesn't need a fleet of trucks to move it around. Settling this argument in a player-versus-player battle seems to be the only way to go…

More awesome stuff will be coming to Legacy of the Beast over the next few months, including Clairvoyant and Trooper Eddie characters, along with Social Chat and new world 'Night City' - inspired by early Maiden and London's East End. If you want to check it out, just grab Legacy Of The Beast (it's free) from the Apple App Store or GooglePlay.

It's #TShirtFriday and we're excited to reveal our 2017 UK tour shirt!

bike 750

Maintaining the Maiden tradition of having some fun with our tour art, the UK shirt depicts Eddie aboard the 'Trooperbike', bombing down the motorway headed for the Isle of Man TT. Yes, he's moved on from the old Maiden England chopper and got (stolen!) himself something a bit sportier and faster!

bike 750 back2

In the real world, the Trooper Triumph by Smiths Racing will be campaigned on the roads by Peter Hickman at the Northwest 200 and the Ulster Grand Prix, as well as the TT. This is the third year that Trooper has been a sponsor, and the first time on a British bike. Previous outings have seen podiums for Hicky at the Northwest and the Ulster, with huge gnarly fingers crossed for more success this year.

Follow Hicky on Twitter @peterhickman60
If you'd like to avoid the queues, carrying a spare shirt or having to get changed in the loos, the new UK shirt is available to pre-order here along with selected items from our 2017 tour merchandise range - at the same price as at the shows.




Parlophone Records will follow 2014’s reissue of the first eight IRON MAIDEN albums, which spanned the 1980s, with twelve brand new pressings of albums from the period 1990-2015 in heavyweight 180g black vinyl.
Unlike the 1980’s reissues which were cut from the original analogue master tapes, the audio on these releases has been cut from the high resolution remasters of 2015 when the Maiden catalogue was digitally upgraded. They will be packaged in identical artwork to the initial vinyl releases.

The records will be released chronologically across a three month period:

Available now!
May 19th: No Prayer For The Dying / Fear Of The Dark / The X Factor / Virtual XI
June 23rd: Brave New World / Rock In Rio (Live) / Dance Of Death / A Matter Of Life And Death
July 28th: Death On The Road (Live) / Flight 666 (Live) / The Final Frontier / En Vivo! (Live)

As a bonus, the first two albums (No Prayer For The Dying & Fear Of The Dark) will also be made available in an exclusive Collector’s Box sized to house all 12 albums with additional space for fans to insert the latest Maiden studio album The Book Of Souls, which was released on triple black vinyl in 2015. The Collector’s Box will be a strictly limited edition and available while stocks last.

These high quality, black vinyls comprised of eight studio albums together with a specially selected choice of four live recordings from this period, completes the IRON MAIDEN album reissues series and offers Maiden fans the opportunity to own the band’s entire studio album legacy on vinyl simultaneously for the very first time.


IRON MAIDEN’s The Book Of Souls Tour resumes with a series of arena shows opening in Sportpalais, Antwerp, Belgium on 22nd April and continuing into Germany, UK and Ireland, finishing with two sold-out shows at London’s 02 arena on 27th & 28th May. The band then flies to the U.S.A for an extensive series of arena and amphitheatre shows including dates in Canada, ending with two nights in Brooklyn, New York on 21 & 22 July. This is the final leg of The Book Of Souls Tour. Most shows are already sold out - check for dates/availability.

Due to overwhelming demand, IRON MAIDEN have added a second night at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Saturday July 22nd. Tickets go on sale Saturday February 25th at 10am EST via


The extra date in Brooklyn on July 22nd will be the final chance for Maiden fans to witness The Book Of Souls Tour as it’s two year, round-the-world odyssey which began in February 2016 in Florida comes to a close. By which time, the band will have played 117 shows to well over 2 million fans in 36 countries, across six of the seven continents travelling well over 100,000 miles.

Tickets for the North American 26 date June/July second leg of The Books Of Souls Tour went on sale nationally a little over two weeks ago on Friday January 27th and were speedily snapped up by Maiden fans with well over 200,000 tickets being sold across the opening weekend alone. The Brooklyn show, the band’s first ever visit here, sold out rapidly with neighbours Philadelphia and Newark already close to sell-out too. There’s been particular fan frenzy in places the band has not played for many years such as Minneapolis which is already sold out with Oakland and Tampa the next to go.

To mark the very end of the tour Maiden have used their coveted city specific event shirt art upfront of the show. The art, by long time collaborator Herve Monjeaud, features Eddie playing havoc with the iconic Brooklyn Bridge amidst hordes of global Maiden fans arriving to witness the event.

Fanclub members will be given the option of an exclusive pre-sale for the 2nd Brooklyn date, along with the chance to enter in the draw to be First To The Barrier.

Special guests on the North American leg of The Book Of Souls Tour are Ghost

Prior to the North American tour the band play shows in Belgium, Germany , the UK and Ireland starting on Apr 22.

All other European shows are completely sold out including the opening show at the massive Sportpalais in Antwerp, both Frankfurt shows, Dublin and both shows at the London O2.

The Book Of Souls is Maiden’s first ever double studio album and their most successful chart-wise to date, debuting at the No.1 spot in over 40 countries around the world and No.4 in the U.S.A.

Scream For Me Sarajevo is a documentary film about Sarajevo during the 1992-95 siege; specifically a film about the music scene in the besieged Bosnian capital with special focus on a concert held in the city's BKC music hall by Bruce Dickinson on December 14, 1994.
