Metal giants Iron Maiden are currently in the midst of a North American tour that will run through Aug. 18. However, they were able to take time from their schedule and give their fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse.

“It’s rocking along,” said lead singer Bruce Dickinson. “It’s an unrelenting set, and it goes – two hours – just goes like that.” The seven-and-a-half minute video features the band talking about the impressive stage set-up (even though they admit that they don’t really get to see it) and how much they love to play the epic ‘Seventh Son of a Seventh Son.’

“It’s a tricky song to play,” said drummer Nicko McBrain, relishing the challenge. “It’s not easy. The intro is one speed. The verses are a different speed and you’ve got the breakdown in the middle. If it gets too quick it doesn’t sit right.”

You also briefly meet the production manager, one of their truck drivers, band manager Rod Smallwood and fans of all ages, many of whom are clad in black Iron Maiden t-shirts. And, of course, Eddie makes an appearance or two, although he keeps refusing requests for interviews.
