Everything began …

…when the Dutch Iron Maiden fan club asked Joey Bruers to do another show. Something that breaks away from a typical homage and the boundaries of another cover band. Since “Leader” Steve Harris would be attending the event, Joey had to prepare something special.

With the participation of musicians from various bands, he presented a series of Iron Maiden songs in acoustic form, which led to triumphant reactions from the audience. And so the original idea turned into a concert, and that concert eventually became a whole undertaking. A venture that aims to bring together musicians and fans from different backgrounds with the aim of giving Iron Maiden’s music the respect it deserves.

Maiden uniteD – “Children Of The Damned”

By acoustically reinterpreting classic songs from the legendary band and giving them a new and very exciting form, Maiden uniteD offer something that Iron Maiden fans could never have imagined.

Maiden uniteD – “Running Free”

In 2010, Maiden uniteD released their debut album “Mind the Acoustic Pieces”, a cover of the 1983 classic “Piece of Mind”, which was presented on a European tour that took the format to the famous Download Festival and Wacken Open Air, among others.

The 2012 release “Across the Seventh Sea” contains a series of acoustic covers of popular and lesser-known Iron Maiden songs with guest Perttu Kivilaakso from Apocalyptica, while Maiden uniteD was accompanied on the corresponding tour by Lee Morris (ex-Paradise Lost), Stef Broks (Textures) and Luke Appleton (Iced Earth).

Maiden uniteD – “Alexander the Great”

The next record station was “Remembrance” (2015), where Paul Di’Anno and Blaze Bayley even featured two singers who don’t need any special introduction, known from their time with Iron Maiden, while several guests came along on the long tour that followed , with this special chapter ending at the Royal Theater in Amsterdam in the presence of Sharon den Adel (Within Temptation) and Perttu Kivilaakso on stage.

Maiden uniteD – “Strange World”

This was followed by the release of the EP “Empire of the Clouds” (2018), while Maiden uniteD began to take a new direction with “The Barrel House Tapes” (2019), featuring musicians such as Doogie White (Rainbow). , Frank Beck (Gamma Ray) and of course Dennis Stratton (Ex-Iron Maiden). The absolute highlight of the album is the participation of award-winning trumpeter Eric Vloeimans.

Fast forward to today: With the “Powerslave European Tour” already completed in 2022 and the simultaneous release of an EP for the 40th anniversary of the legendary “The Number of the Beast”, Maiden UniteD are turning back the clock again, this time on Iron Maiden’s legendary first record, with their own “1980” and the accompanying tour.

Maiden uniteD – “The Number Of The Beast”

As part of the “1980 Tour”, Maiden uniteD is also coming to Greece for two unforgettable nights, on Friday April 12th at the An Club in Athens and on Saturday April 13th at the Eightball Club in Thessaloniki, also for two nights historic venue “Cart & Horses, the birthplace of Iron Maiden” in London, where it all began for the legendary band…
