Iron Maiden to Host Their Own Festival?
Following last Friday's (September 13) massive San Bernardino performance, stories of Iron Maiden hosting their own festival began circulating the media, as drummer Nicko McBrain seems very much up for the idea. Apart from the iconic Maiden headliners, the "Battle of San Bernardino" also featured thrash legends Megadeth, Testament, Anthrax, Sabaton, Overkill and Warbringer, truly turning the event into a fest. When asked by the Press Enterprise on the festival idea, McBrain replied, "You never know, you just never know in this game. I think it would be great to do a Maiden Fest." As for the Maiden England tour, Nicko decided to share a few setlist changes that made the trek all the more unique. "We dusted the cobwebs off of 'Phantom of the Opera' - we hadn't played that in about five or six years," he said. "The one that really gets me is 'Seventh Son of a Seventh Son.' It's a very tricky song to play. It's got a lot of different moves and moods in it. That one I find really hard but challenging, and it's really great to play because it's a stunning piece of music." The drummer also praised Megadeth's San Bernardino performance. "They've got a great show," he stated. "They've got these wonderful Jumbotron tellies and screens and they're sounding really, really good." How does the idea of a Maiden Fest sound to you? It seems as if the band just might actually do it, so post your comments, share this story and help get the ball rolling.
