Maiden Voyage: Inside Iron Maiden's Book Of Souls Tour

Johnny Black, Audience, April 2016

SEEN FROM the stage, an Iron Maiden concert is an ocean of Maiden t-shirts, with thousands of devotees proudly displaying various incarnations of the band's zombie-robot mascot Eddie. If you're a star-watcher, you'll have seen everyone from Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters to Robbie Williams and Miley Cyrus sporting Maiden shirts. Walk along any city street and you'll see teenage girls, many of whom know little about Iron Maiden, wearing the same t-shirts bought in their local fashion outlet.
