Information

Iron Maiden's Steve Harris arrives to de Boerderij with his solo project British Lion! This is your chance to stand face to face with the bassist, bandleader and founder of one of the world's biggest metal bands of all time!

As Steve is currently very busy with Iron Maiden, we’re glad he found a gap in his tour schedule to come to the Netherlands with his side project. Besides the bassist the band consists of Richard Taylor on vocals, David Hawkins on guitar/keys, Grahame Leslie on guitar and Simon Dawson on drums. The band released its debut album “British Lion” in 2012. The album was mixed by regular Iron Maiden producer Kevin Shirley and was well received by both fans and press. Steve Harris loves to play in intimate clubs. He was quoted: “I love touring and live shows and am very excited to play with British Lion. It is fantastic to once again experience the sheer vibrancy of the smaller clubs, with the fans right in front of you – and I know that they appreciate it too. It is wonderful to go back to my roots and it is gonna be fantastic! Hot, sweaty and loud and we opted for great rock venues, with tickets priced down as low as possible.”

Support acts

Voodoo Six

London based Voodoo Six was formed in 2003 when bassist Tony Newton, guitarist Richie Faulkner and drummer Dave Cavill disbanded the group Deeds(originally ‘Dirty Deeds’)  and started up a new project. In 2005, vocalist Henry Rundell and guitarist Matt Pearce joined the band. After the re-release in 2008 of their debut album from 2006 under the new title “First Hit For Free” Iron Maiden took Voodoo Six under its wings and the Londoners were acting several times as support act. In 2009 Rundell was replaced by Luke Purdie which added extra momentum, witnessed by the release of the second album ‘Fluke?” (2010). Following their examples, Voodoo Six brings a contemporary form of hard rock without denying its traditional heavy metal roots. Their EP “Falling Knives” is Voodoo Six at large: classic hard rock with ‘New wave of British heavy metal’ roots. Meanwhile the band with new singer Nik Taylor Stoakes on board is busy in the studio recording new material.
