(hennemusic) Megadeth bassist David Ellefson has filed behind-the-scenes video from opening night of the Iron Maiden tour in Raleigh, North Carolina on Tuesday.
The two metal legends are playing a series of seven US dates over the next week a half, wrapping things up September 13 in San Bernardino, California.
Touring in support of their latest album, "Super Collider", frontman Dave Mustaine raved about the whole opening night experience. "Well, last night marked several highlights for me," wrote Mustaine. "We started the Megadeth and Iron Maiden tour, I got to say hello to Nicko [McBrain], Adrian [Smith], Bruce [Dickinson], Steve [Harris], and their legendary manager Rod Smallwood."
"We also added 'Tornado Of Souls' to the set, and when we came back to our dressing room, the incredible class of I.M. was on display in the form of an enormous bowl of ice with 6 chilled bottles of Moet champagne," he continued. "The sign said, 'Megadeth, welcome aboard... Here's to a fantastic tour!! From all at Iron Maiden,' so I definitely knew it was for us." Check out the video and read more here.
