It's not just pop stars and divas who experience extravagant costume changes and possibly dangerous stage theatrics during their epic performances. Heavy Metal masters Iron Maiden have shared some behind-the-scenes footage, hosted by frontman Bruce Dickinson and taken during their recent Legacy Of The Beast tour, showing just how much work goes into every single show.

Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson takes viewers first through a short rundown of his exercise routine and an equipment check before, over the course of a two-part mini-documentary on the band’s YouTube page, taking fans through details of the production, the backstage setup, tour rider, costume and set changeovers, and much more.

He even discusses some of the intricate pieces of the stage setup and flips some switches with the crew. “Sometimes I get a few burns on my hands,” Bruce jokes at one point about a flamethrower suit he donned during the tour, continuing with his “dark and dingy” backstage tour in the second clip, “the strange world that I live in – this funny little hobbit world,” as he calls it.

Check out both videos with Bruce below.

Maiden currently has plans to hit the road overseas on their Future Past Tour 2023. Full details and ticket info can be found at
