World Piece Tour

April – December 1983

tourbook04_pom tourpic_pom

“What ho! Sed the 'ting...!&”This tour in support of the Piece Of Mind album was massively successful and helped set the stage for the 'World Slavery Tour a year later. After the previous tour, the rigours of touring and poor health caused drummer Clive Burr to quit the band, and he was replaced by ex-Trust drummer Nicko McBrain. This would be Iron Maiden's most durable line-up, and the one that went on to be one of the most successful rock acts ever. With the exception of the encores, their set list featured mostly songs from the Dickinson era up to that point. Songs such as Phantom Of The Opera Iron Maiden were slowed down from their breakneck speed tempos of previous tours. The stage set was more elaborate than ever before and featured pyrotechnics and a giant Eddie head above the drum riser. Part of their set was captured on film when they played Europe's famous Dortmund Festivalon the last date of the tour. The tour ended on a high note as Bruce Dickinson took the brain out of Eddie's head as Eddie was kicked and pummeled by the band, and Dave Murray lovingly smashed his black Fender Stratocaster to pieces on Eddie's neck and a nearby amplifier. All this is documented on the Early Days DVD released in 2004.

Opening bands for this tour: Fastway, Coney Hatch, Quiet Riot, and Vinnie Vincent Invasion.
