THE IRON MAIDENS: Pro-Shot Footage Of 'The Wicker Man' Performance

Professionally filmed video footage of THE IRON MAIDENS, the world's first female tribute to the legendary band IRON MAIDEN, performing the MAIDEN classic "The Wicker Man" can be seen below.

THE IRON MAIDENS will play its debut one-off London show at the O2 Islington Academy on April 14.

Excited THE IRON MAIDENS frontwoman Kirsten Rosenberg (a.k.a. Bruce Chickinson) said: "For years people have been asking when we're coming to the U.K. so it feels almost surreal that it's finally happening. To play London — the city where IRON MAIDEN actually began in 1975 — is thrilling and also daunting; I expect the 'home' fans to be the most discerning but we are definitely up for the challenge! To see where it all began, this is hallowed ground."

Formed in 2001 in Southern California, THE IRON MAIDENS have quickly established themselves as one of the most notorious tribute act in the U.S., progressively expanding their fame far and beyond the Americas. These five women have conquered the attention of fans and fellow musicians with their musical prowess and electrifying live shows, where they perform hits and fan favorites from all phases of IRON MAIDEN's career with appearances by mascot Eddie, the grim reaper, the devil and more.

THE IRON MAIDENS are highly trained professionals with diversified musical backgrounds, ranging from orchestral and musical theater to blues and rock.

THE IRON MAIDENS celebrate the recent release of their first full-length studio album, the first studio tribute CD to a band ever recorded entirely by one artist; the cover artwork featuring a female monster was designed by none other than Eddie's creator Derek Riggs.

Despite being undoubtedly five rocking hot ladies, THE IRON MAIDENS are not just pretty faces: in their career they have been joined on stage by the likes of Alex Skolnick from TESTAMENT, Lemmy, MEGADETH's David Ellefson, ANTHRAX's Scott Ian and JUDAS PRIEST's Tim "Ripper" Owens. They were chosen to support DANZIG, CYPRESS HILL, SNOOP DOGG, NIGHTWISH and NEVERMORE, among others. They've been featured in Playboy and Hustler as well as Rolling Stone, Guitar World and Drum magazine.
