Nicko says: “There are many songs on this tour that we haven’t played for quite a long time. There’s songs in this setlist we play on every tour we do, so stop whinging, stop moaning because that’s what’s happening!”

As for the epic stage show, Nicko adds: “When you’re there in the flesh and you see this incredible stage set and the production we put into this show, you’re going to be absolutely astounded.”

Not only does Nicko reveal a little about what fans can expect, but he also plays some of intros on a four-piece kit.
