NICKO MCBRAIN Performs With IRON MAIDEN Tribute Band In Nashville (Video)

September 8, 2019

Nicko McBrain joined the Tennessee IRON MAIDEN tribute band IRON TRIBE on August 18 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Nashville to perform two MAIDEN classics: "Run To The Hills" and "Flight Of Icarus". Video footage of his appearance can be seen below. MAIDEN bassist Steve Harris and guitarist Adrian Smith were also in attendance at the show — which took place one day before MAIDEN's concert at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena — but didn't get up on stage to play with IRON TRIBE.

IRON TRIBE said in a Facebook post: "We had an epic night playing the 'Night Before Maiden' show at Hard Rock Cafe Nashville on Aug 18, 2019. Special guests in attendance included Steve Harris of IRON MAIDEN, Nicko McBrain of IRON MAIDEN, Adrian Smith of IRON MAIDEN and Richie Faulkner from JUDAS PRIEST. AND Nicko McBrain got up and played some songs with IRON TRIBE! What an epic night. We are honored that IRON MAIDEN came to our show beyond words. Steve Harris stayed for our entire show. Thank you to everybody who came out. We exceeded capacity at the Hard Rock with 390 people in attendance. I hope all of you that were waiting to get in got to come in eventually. We love you all and you all ROCK! You shared our greatest night as a band with us."

IRON MAIDEN kicked off the 33-city North American leg of the "Legacy Of The Beast" tour on July 18 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.

McBrain recently said about the trek: "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."

The concept for the "Legacy Of The Beast" tour was inspired by MAIDEN's mobile game and comic book of the same name. The stage set design features a number of different but interlocking "worlds" with a setlist covering a large selection of 1980s material with a handful of surprises from later albums to add diversity.
