Fan-filmed video footage MAIDEN UNITED, the all-acoustic IRON MAIDEN tribute project featuring Damian Wilson (THRESHOLD, HEADSPACE) and Ruud Jolie (WITHIN TEMPTATION), performing the song "Remember Tomorrow" on April 13 at Lakei in Helmond, The Netherlands can be seen below. The song was dedicated to former IRON MAIDEN drummer Clive Burr, who died on March 12 in his sleep at his home at the age of 56 after suffering from multiple sclerosis for many years. MAIDEN UNITED's lineup for this show featured Stef Broks (TEXTURES) on drums and Huub van Loon (DEARWORLD) on piano.
Clive joined MAIDEN in 1979 and performed on the first three albums — "Iron Maiden" (1980), "Killers" (1981) and "The Number Of The Beast" (1982). Prior to that, he was a member of SAMSON, the band Bruce Dickinson fronted before he, too, joined MAIDEN.
MAIDEN UNITED's latest album, "Across The Seventh Sea", was released on September 28, 2012 on CD, iTunes and limited-edition black-and-blue transparent vinyl. The cover artwork for the CD was once again created by Blacklake, who also worked with MAIDEN UNITED on their first studio album, 2010's "Mind The Acoustic Pieces".
"Mind The Acoustic Pieces" was described as "an acoustic re-imagining of the entire classic IRON MAIDEN album "Piece Of Mind" with new arrangements."
