Iron Maiden Stand Against Pay For Play Practice

(Classic Rock) Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris says they'll never make other bands pay to support them on tour - and he believes other successful acts should do the same.

He argues that it's a great opportunity to help nurture the big names of the future, and it's also a chance to give something back to the scene that made him a success.

In many situations, support bands will be required to "buy on" to a headline act's tour, paying for the opportunity to appear before a bigger audience than they'd get themselves, with the aim of expanding their own following.

Harris tells Metal Journal (via Blabbermouth): "I hate it when people charge bands to play with them - I hate that. I've never done that and I will never do it.

"To me, it's just wrong. A band should get at least some expenses to pay a gig, and they shouldn't have to pay to play. I've always been really against that. I've always tried to help people out." Read more here.
