Hardline Media is proud to announce Paul Dianno and Blaze Bayley – Legendary ex-vocalists of Iron Maiden

| 26 September 2012 | Reply

Hardline Media proudly presents Paul Dianno and Blaze Bayley – former vocalists of
Iron Maiden – performing together for the first time ever in Australia and New
Zealand. In a world exclusive, for their co-headlining sets both singers will be
belting out only Iron Maiden songs – classic tracks from their respective albums
with one of the biggest heavy metal bands in the world. This promises to be a
must-see event for any fan of Iron Maiden and heavy metal!

The tour will also mark Blaze Bayley’s first time Down Under, taking himself and
Di’Anno all across Australia (including regional NSW dates) and New Zealand in late
November/early December. While Di’Anno has successfully toured Australasian shores
previously, it will be his first performing solely Iron Maiden songs.

Both artists have released a wealth of their own successful solo material, but as a
special treat for ‘Maiden’ fans, to make this tour special they have agreed to only
perform Iron Maiden tracks. This means that punters can expect to hear Di’Anno-era
classics such as ‘Phantom Of The Opera’, ‘Wrathchild’, ‘Running Free’, ‘Sanctuary’,
and ‘Killers’, along with classic Blaze-era cuts such as ‘Sign Of The Cross’,
‘Futureal’, ‘Lord Of The Flies’, ‘Man On The Edge’, and many more. The majority of
these songs are hardly ever played live anymore by Iron Maiden, so fans will have
the rare opportunity to hear them performed by the legendary vocalists who first
recorded them.

This will be a dual headlining tour – whoever goes on last each night will be
determined by the toss of a coin before the show. Fans are encouraged to get there
early so as not to miss a minute of this special event.

Iron Maiden are one of the biggest names in heavy metal and the music industry as a
whole. As leaders of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement in the early
eighties, they would go on to become one of the biggest and most successful heavy
metal bands of all time, influencing countless acts that followed and selling over
100 million records worldwide. As the original singer of Iron Maiden, Paul Di’Anno’s
unique and aggressive vocals featured on their first two ground-breaking albums –
the self-titled debut (1980) and its follow-up ‘Killers’ (1981). Both releases are
widely regarded as classics and have sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.
When Di’Anno’s successor Bruce Dickinson left Iron Maiden in the early nineties,
Wolfsbane vocalist Blaze Bayley was selected to front the band out of hundreds who
auditioned. Blaze would record two albums with Iron Maiden – 1995’s ‘The X Factor’
and 1998’s ‘Virtual XI’ –  helping to ensure Iron Maiden’s prominence during the nineties when heavy metal was
at a low point.

Two legendary vocalists together in Australia and New Zealand for the first time
performing NOTHING but Iron Maiden (with likely a few surprises – such as sharing
songs – thrown in as well). This is a must-see event for all heavy metal and hard
rock fans.
