IRON MAIDEN vocalist Bruce Dickinson and guitarist Dave Murray were the featured guests on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline", hosted by Bob Coburn, on Wednesday, May 21. The program is now available for streaming at this location. IRON MAIDEN was only the fifth artist in "Rockline"'s twenty-seven year history whose appearance on the show was pre-taped (on May 20) due to the fact they were onstage in San Antonio when the program was scheduled to air.
IRON MAIDEN's new collection, "Somewhere Back In Time The Best Of: 1980-1989", has registered the following first-week chart positions around the world:
"Somewhere Back In Time The Best Of: 1980-1989" sold 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. This very special album charts the first decade of the band's extraordinary career. The CD 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.
