Los Angeles CLIVEAID Event Postponed

Cliveaid, the organization which was set up in 2004 as a fund-raising event for original IRON MAIDEN drummer Clive Burr (who suffers from multiple sclerosis), has issued the following update:

"Cliveaid announces that its scheduled show for Los Angeles this September will now be taking place the first Saturday of March 2008. This is due to a chance meeting at a recent festival which will enable us to bring you the show we all want... a kick-ass metal/rock show. At this point the only info we can give you is that one of the biggest bands in the world is helping us out with something. Also we can announce that our Bergen [Norway] show that will be held on March 27th is taking great shape. So far we have OCTAVIA SPERATI and one huge name that has confirmed; we just need to cross the t's and dot the i's. However, it will be announced very soon. Also we are scheduling shows for France, Sweden, Italy, Denmark and even more in the USA. We are looking for corporate help for some shows as we need advertisers on our site and also help with various issues that are arrising so if you can help us please email [email protected]"

The Cliveaid event that was previously scheduled for September 22, 2007 in Los Angeles, California was supposed to feature RONNY MUNROE PROJECT, LEATHERWOLF, HUCK JOHNS, MY EVOLUTION and CRUEL.

Burr is suffering from multiple sclerosis — a disease of unknown cause. The disorder is causing him intermittent numbness and can affect his balance. At present there is no known cure for MS, although he is helping test new drugs in the hope that his body response may contribute to a cure.

Clive joined IRON MAIDEN at the very end of December 1979 and played on the first three albums — "Iron Maiden", "Killers" and "Number of the Beast" — and toured extensively with the band over this groundbreaking period before leaving in early 1983.
