As the voice behind Iron Maiden‘s iconic first two albums, the 1980 self-titled masterpiece and the legendary 1981 release Killers, Paul Di’Anno has left his indelible mark on the world of heavy music. Get ready to sing along to unforgettable classics like Running Free, Sanctuary, Wrathchild, Remember Tomorrow, Murders in the Rue Morgue, and many more.
Merging punk’s energy with metal’s riffs and prog rock’s complexity, early Maiden served as the blueprint for future heavy music genres including thrash and speed metal and heavily influenced later progressive bands.
Since his departure from Maiden in 1981, Paul Di’Anno has been a musical force to be reckoned with, releasing numerous albums both as a solo artist and as a member of various bands like Gogmagog, Battlezone, Praying Mantis, Killers, Rockfellas, and Warhorse. No matter his musical incarnation, he always found a way to connect with his fans, delivering unforgettable live performances that have rocked audiences worldwide.
In recent years, Paul faced serious health challenges that nearly brought his career to an end. However, thanks to his unwavering determination and the incredible support of his loyal fans, he’s back on the road and heading to Australia! This heavy metal icon with the heart of a punk rock rebel has always given his all to music and his fans, and that’s why they’ve stood by him for nearly five decades.
Joining Di’Anno are one of the most important bands in recent Brazilian heavy metal history, Noturnall. Having appeared at the iconic Rock In Rio on three separate occasions and receiving global praise from a wide range of sources including music press, the Brazilian government and even Facebook itself, Noturnall have become a cultural phenomenon. Featuring members of Adrenaline Mob, Angra, Shaman and Project 46, Noturnall’s blend of progressive, power, thrash and groove metal is truly something special.
Di’Anno’s Australian tour will also showcase some of the nation’s premier heavy acts, including Silent Knight, Dirty Pagan’s, Firestorm, Revenger, Nothing Sacred, Flitcraft, Killrazer, and Bastardizer.
