Live Preview: Iron Maiden
Dave Murray and Janick Gers check in from Mexico ahead of their Download show.
Iron Maiden have already played South America, the US and New Zealand on this tour, and your Download appearance is coming up soon. Where did you rehearse for The Book Of Souls tour?
Dave Murray: We actually have a soundproof studio in Miami. We normally go through the old stuff first, just to loosen up a bit, and then we’ll spend a lot of time on the new ones. With some of the new songs – fourteen minutes long, ten-minute songs – there’s a lot of things going on in them, so we spend a lot of time honing that and polishing them.
