IRON MAIDEN AMERICA sign now

Anyone who's anybody knows that Iron Maiden puts on the best live metal show of any band, ever. Anybody who's anybody who loves Iron Maiden would pay anything to see Iron Maiden live. Iron Maiden is the most influential metal band of all time.

From VH1:

"Known for such powerful hits as "Two Minutes to Midnight" and "The Trooper," Iron Maiden were and are one of the most influential bands of the heavy metal genre. The often-imitated band existed for over 20 years, pumping out wild rock similar to Judas Priest. Iron Maiden have always been an underground attraction; although failing to ever obtain any real media attention in the U.S. (critics claimed them to be Satanists due to their dark musical themes and their use of grim mascot "Eddie"), they still became well known throughout the world and have remained consistently popular throughout their career. Iron Maiden were one of the first groups to be classified as "British metal," and, along with Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and a host of other bands, set the rock scene for the '80s.


Iron Maiden was first formed in 1976 by bassist Steve Harris, who would soon join up with rhythm guitarist Tony Parsons, drummer Doug Sampson, and vocalist Paul Di'Anno. Before finally obtaining a record deal, the group played in local areas throughout the '70s, receiving a fair amount of London airplay. Parsons replaced Dennis Stratton, and the band made its record debut in 1980 with the self-titled Iron Maiden album. Although the release was recorded in a hurry, it was nonetheless a hit in the U.K. due to the single "Running Free." Iron Maiden's 1981 follow-up, Killers, displayed a harder approach to their music than before, and also saw the replacement of Stratton with Adrian Smith. Due to his uncontrollable alcohol addiction, Di'Anno was forced to part company with the group and would soon be replaced with vocalist Bruce Dickinson in 1982 for the band's groundbreaking Number of the Beast. This album, boasting such songs as the title track and "Hallowed Be Thy Name," would come to be known as one of the greatest rock recordings of all time. Since the unexpected worldwide success of Beast made Iron Maiden international rock superstars, they changed very little of their style for their next album, Piece of Mind. They undertook two major tours before recording 1983's Powerslave, which would go on to be another cult hit. The product of Powerslave's 11-month tour was 1985's Live After Death, a double live album the featured all of their biggest hit singles."

These days, our youth are experiencing a horrible wave of popular music. It can be classified a few ways, but we all know it as "crap". Iron Maiden is real music. Iron Maiden is alive and still popular, but it is something that needs to be awakened again in America. I am petitioning that Iron Maiden do an American tour after their European tour. Iron Maiden is something that every metal fan should pay homage to by going to one of their shows that they put so much effort into making it the best live experience you could have. In my opinion, no band puts on a better show than Iron Maiden. If all true Iron Maiden fans signed this, maybe they would see that America is the place they need to go after Europe.
