Nicko Wants Iron Maiden To Play With Symphony Orchestra
And he thinks a symphonic concert, like the Royal Albert Hall show staged by late Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord in London, would be the ideal time to dig up Maiden tracks that have never made it to the stage.
McBrain tells 98.7 The Gater: "What I'd like to see Maiden do before we step back from the touring schedule that we usually do, I'd like to see us do like what Jon Lord did years and years back [referring to a concert the Deep Purple legend played with the London Symphony Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall], is do Iron Maiden songs with an orchestra.
He says he would love to do an orchestra show, "because there's a lot of stuff there. 'Alexander The Great' is a track that everybody's been moaning it's been never played live. I'd like to do things like that. Everything that we haven't covered I'd like to see us do an orchestral version of. Perhaps that will happen one day." Read more here.
