Iron Maiden have checked in with a new video report from the road where the US leg of their 'Maiden England' tour is now in full swing. You can see the video below.

The seven minute video shows clips of their massive live show plus interview clips that range from members of the band to production manager Patrick Ledwith to even checking in with one of the truck drivers that transports the gigantic show from state to state, plus chats with fans along the way.

Steve Harris checks in from backstage, saying: "The show looks great, from what we can see of it. Obviously we're always facing the other way because we're facing you lot, but you know, it looks good."

Frontman Bruce Dickinson said the time on stage is flying by each night: "It's rocking along, it's an unrelenting set, two hours just goes like that."

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
