In an interview with The Press-Enterprise, drummer Nicko McBrain let slip a concept that’s been floated as a possibility for Iron Maiden’s future.
Iron Maiden headlined the huge Battle of San Bernardino as part of their 2012-13 Maiden England World Tour. Nicko spoke with The Press-Enterprise for the occasion, sharing some thoughts about Maiden’s many years of performing in Southern California, including the infamous clash with the Osbournes in 2005.
We already know that Maiden are likely to do a 2014 summer tour, and towards the end of the interview McBrain muses that the idea of doing their own festival has been kicked around. “You never know, you just never know in this game,” McBrain said. “I think it would be great to do a Maiden Fest.”
