Watch Iron Maiden’s Eddie kidnap band’s stage manager

Iron Maiden (opens in new tab) have released two videos from their Legacy Of The Beast tour.

The UK hard rock heroes are currently weaving their way across Europe, with the run of shows named after the band’s mobile game and comic book of the same name.

And in the two new videos filmed on the road, fans can see the band’s stage manager being kidnapped by an angry Eddie, while frontman Bruce Dickinson scales the heights during an epic performance of The Evil That Men Do.

Watch them both below.

Speaking previously about the summer shows, Dickinson said he wanted to surprise fans with their live sets.

He said: “I’m looking at the show as something that should certainly exceed what we did on the Book Of Souls (opens in new tab) tour, and I’m approaching things a slightly different way.

“I’m approaching some of the songs a slightly different way. I’m conscious that over the years we’ve fallen into a little groove with some songs, so I want to try to shake that groove up a little bit.”

He added: “I want them to go home going, ‘Fucking hell, I can’t believe they played that song!’ That’s the reaction I want.”
