Description

Iron Maiden have prevailed over the world of heavy metal for almost thirty years, and are currently enjoying overwhelming success on the current 'Somewhere Back in Time World Tour '08', along with a recent No 1 DVD 'Live After Death'. EMI Records are proud to release a very special album on 12th May to chart the first decade of the band's extraordinary career. The album celebrates the essence of the current tour by featuring most of the essential tracks from the band's first seven studio albums and one live album, recorded between 1980 and 1989, and is aptly titled 'SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME'. Travelling in their own airliner, piloted by singer Bruce Dickinson, the Iron Maiden '08 world tour has already become international news, and will see the band play to over 1.5 million fans around the globe. The tour comes to the UK this Summer with the band's first UK stadium appearance in front of 55,000 at London's Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 5th July, with special guests Avenged Sevenfold and Within Temptation.

Profile
Founded in Leyton in London's East End in 1975, Iron Maiden released their first album in 1980 as a five-piece with Paul Di'Anno on vocals. Bruce Dickinson would replace him in 1981. With several line-up changes Steve Harris would remain the only original member never to have had a hiatus.

When Bruce Dickinson quit in 1994 and was replaced by Wolfsbane's Blaze Bayley, the band lost a lot of their fanbase. They recorded two albums with Blaze before Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Smith (2) returned to the fold for 2000's "Brave New World", and 2003's "Dance of Death", making them a six-piece. As of 1999 the line-up hasn't changed
