The above official IRON MAIDEN t-shirt is back in stock, limited sizes but we'll get more soon. The design marks the 1981 Killers tour which travelled throughout the world between February and December, starting here in Ipswich at the Gaumont (now the Regent) on the 17th.
It was their last tour with original vocalist Paul Di'Anno, his last gig was in Copenhagen on the 10th of September. The tour stalled for just over a month but Dickinson took over immediately, playing his first of five concerts in Italy before returning to London for the last two dates. The final concert of 1981 was a secret gig (with the band billed as GENGHIS KHAN) at the East Ham Ruskin Arms where they added "The Prisoner" and "Run to the Hills" to the set.
The setlist for most dates:
"The Ides of March"
"Murders in the Rue Morgue"
"Phantom of the Opera"
