Former IRON MAIDEN singers Paul Di'Anno and Blaze Bayley took part in a joint press conference earlier today (Sunday, February 26) in Moscow, Russia prior to their concert tonight at Plan B.
Di'Anno and Bayley were scheduled to perform classic MAIDEN tracks while accompanied by Russian musicians as part of a Russian tour, which kicked off on February 22 in St. Petersburg.
A short video clip of today's press conference can be seen below.
The 48-year-old Bayley, who was born in Birmingham, was the original frontman in WOLFSBANE, but left in 1994 to replace Bruce Dickinson as the lead singer of IRON MAIDEN.
Di'Anno was the frontman of IRON MAIDEN when they took the world by storm and shot to fame between 1978 and 1981. He was fired by MAIDEN in 1981 under a cloud of drug-taking allegations he always denied.
In his post-MAIDEN career, Di'Anno has issued numerous albums, as both a solo artist and as a member of such bands as GOGMAGOG, BATTLEZONE and KILLERS and he has been featured (either as the artist or as a guest) on more than 60 albums released worldwide.
