(Classic Rock) Iron Maiden's mascot Eddie has fallen foul of censors in Lithuania because he might scare children. A poster advertising Maiden's show in Kaunas, Lithuania, on June 23 has been removed from display after authorities intervened.

A spokesman for the Lithuanian arm of promoter LiveNation had the following to say to Delfi: "We received a letter that should stop advertising because it scares children.

"Right now, we have to decide how to carry on forward, but we must also immediately take down the posters." The poster features a Book Of Souls-era Eddie in black and white with glowing red eyes. See the poster and read more here.
