"When Jackson sent me a prototype of my signature guitar, I liked it right away," said Adrian. "So much so, it became my number one choice onstage for the 'Somewhere Back in Time' tour. It passed the test with flying colours, performing the all-important basics like staying in tune, (having) great electronics, and providing me with a great means of expression. It's one of the loudest guitars I have"

Iron Maiden tonight pulled off a stunning victory by a reported landslide at the UK's prestigious Brit Awards when they were voted 'Best British Live Act' by the public and their fans ahead of Coldplay, Elbow, The Verve and Scouting For Girls.
Maiden are one of Britain's biggest International acts ever, selling over 70 million albums and breaking ticket records around the globe with their enormous live following. Last summer they staged a spectacular British show at Twickenham Stadium, one of 90 shows in 38 countries on the current "Somewhere Back in Time" tour, playing to almost two million fans.
Exhausted by the traveling and hustle, and of course filled with many good emotions and satisfaction, we returned from Serbia.
Very briefly I will try to explain everything, but doubt that I can describe everything that happened to us all these 24 hours. The Bulgarian fans departed from Sofia at 7:00 AM morning and we were in Belgrade about 16:20 PM.This delay was caused by the actions of the Serbian customs authorities, who examined each of us as a potential drug dealer, and then escort us with police cars everywhere, and didn't allow us to stop, even to go to the toilet.
On Each gas station there was a police patrol who somehow seem to guard the entrance preventing us to stop.It was Like going to a concert in a Communist block country in the 80's. This did not darkened our mood and we were not too late for the concert amd live live the magic that titled Somewhere Back In Time. Nearly 2 hour set contained incredible Iron Maiden classics, some of which are played live maybe for the last time.

British heavy rock legends, Iron Maiden, in association with Banger Productions, EMI Records, Universal (USA) and Arts Alliance Media, announce that they will be releasing a feature length documentary film into cinemas worldwide on April 21st 2009.
As you may know from Rod's tour diaries, Iron Maiden have been working on a feature length documentary. Entitled 'IRON MAIDEN: FLIGHT 666', the movie follows the band on the first leg of their Somewhere Back In Time World Tour in February and March of 2008 as they experienced the most ambitious and adventurous tour in rock history, and will be released in April 2009 in association with EMI Records and Universal in the USA.
The Maiden tour plan was something that had never been attempted before on such a grand scale. Circumnavigating the globe, the band flew in a specially customised Boeing 757 airliner with their crew and 12 tons of music and stage equipment on board, playing 23 sold out stadium and arena shows in 13 countries in just 45 days, travelling 70,000km and performing to almost half a million fans.
The band were accompanied everywhere by award-winning documentary makers Banger Productions from Toronto in Canada, who have received international critical acclaim for their previous movies "Metal, A Headbangers Journey" and recently "Global Metal". Filmmakers Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn and their team bring an intimate behind the scenes view of this remarkable journey, with a close look at the logistics involved and following Team Maiden in the cockpit, on the plane and on and offstage, getting to the heart of this global adventure of a band that has very rarely even let cameras backstage before.
Shot in High Definition and with superb 5.1 surround sound, mixed by the bands producer Kevin 'Caveman' Shirley, FLIGHT 666 brings to the screen all the drama, excitement and hysteria that followed the band around the world every time 'Ed Force One' touched down in a new country. The film documents the intensity of the punishing show schedules, the struggle with the time zones, the pressures of ensuring that every performance matched the energy of the many thousands of ecstatic and expectant fans from many cultural backgrounds, unusual angles from the spectacular shows... and of course the fun had on the way!.
Iron Maiden: Flight 666 is an honest and revealing portrait of one of the worlds most successful rock bands and a must-see for all Maiden fans.
A special international 'Iron Maiden' day is being planned for 21st April with simultaneous showings of IRON MAIDEN:FLIGHT 666 in selected Digital cinemas around the world - we will of course bring you more information on this nearer the time.
Maiden have been nominated for the 'BEST BRITISH LIVE ACT' at the forthcoming prestigious music industry 'Brits' award alongside, Coldplay , Elbow, Scouting For Girls and The Verve.
Commenting last night at the nomination party, Rod said: "Iron Maiden's secret weapon is our fans. Anyone who's been to one of our shows knows that they're the most passionate and devoted fans on the planet, making the incredible atmosphere at our shows. To be nominated for Best Live Act at the Brits is as much a recognition of them as it is of us. So for all of them, Up The Irons!"
The winner will be chosen by BBC Radio 2 listeners -- voting doesn't start until February 2nd so we'll be sure to keep you updated!
On Tuesday March 10th Maiden will play at the 30,000 capacity Aucas Stadium in the capital city Quito in Ecuador. This will be the band's first ever show in this country.

This will be the first time that the band have ever played in the beautiful coastal city of Recife, the capital city Brasilia, and Manaus, situated on the Amazon in the very heart of the rainforest. It will also be their first visit to Rio for 6 years.
Following massive demand for tickets and the rapid sell out of the 40,000 capacity Palmeiras Stadium in Sao Paolo earlier this year the band will also return there again, but this time in a much bigger venue, the famous Formula One Grand Prix circuit Interlagos, where Lewis Hamilton sealed the Formula One World Championship last month. Other than Formula One Racing, the only other events ever to be arranged there are a concert by Kiss in 1999, Brazil's Skol Beat electronic dance festival and an appearance by His Holiness the Pope, for whom hundreds of thousands turned out.
