Iron Maiden have released an incredible 10-minute behind-the-scenes video from their massive, "Maiden England World Tour 2013."
The tour, which kicked off in Spain in late May, won't wind down till it pulls into Santiago, Chile, on October 2. To see all the band's scheduled dates, head here.
It's incredible to see the massive fan-base that Maiden have, and the younger ages of the fans is a true testament to the bands solid classic metal writing ability. Aside from showcasing the loving crowds, (who come far & wide to see the iconic metal band), the video shines light upon the incredible tour-rigs and equipment that is set-up for each show. Eleven 18-wheelers haul a staggering amount of audio & lighting equipment for each of the bands sold-out shows.
Last week, the band landed atop Billboard.com's "Hot Tours" list of top-grossing tours, with $19 million in ticket sales from 14 performances in 13 cities. The shows were attended by 259,298 fans, including a sellout crowd of 55,531 at Friends Arena in Sweden. Also included was a sold-out show May 29 at Lisbon's Pavilhão Atlântico.
