International Iron Maiden Tribute Band - 'Higher on Maiden', formed in the U.K. around 1995 and are The World's Original and Finest Tribute to the Mighty 'Iron Maiden'

For the last 18 years they have played shows in every corner of the UK, Europe and most recently, India, where one gig was broadcast on live TV, in front of 6000 screaming fans.
Higher-on-Maiden are the only Iron Maiden Tribute who's members have actually played on stage with (and members have been officially endorsed by) Steve Harris, Adrian Smith, Nicko McBrain, Paul Dianno & Blaze Bayley.
And when Bruce Dickinson was at one of their shows in Sweden he commented to Higher-on-Maiden's front man, 'Big Dickinson' ...... "You sound just like me !!! ... I always wondered what I sang on that bit!"
Higher-on-Maiden have a genuine passion for the music of Iron Maiden coupled with a desire to recreate the live sound as closely as possible. As a review in Terrorizer Magazine said, "Normally a cover band wouldn't warrant a review in Terrorizer, but this lot were so much fun that they are worth a mention. They have the guitar sound down pat, 'Steve Harris' is a dead ringer for 'Arry and the best part was that the set list was one great song after another. Higher-on-Maiden is a great night out for you and the mates to rock out and have a beverage. Eddie even shows up to give his blessing too."
Up the Irons !

BRUCE, NICKO AND ADRIAN PRAISE HIGHER-ON-MAIDEN IN METAL HAMMER!!!

Happy new year to you all! And what a great start to the new year with Iron Maiden praising Higher-on-Maiden in the new issue of Metal Hammer!!!

The boys were asked the question: "Have you ever been to see a Maiden tribute band? Any good?
Here are their replies:

Bruce: "I've been to see Hi-on Maiden - a Geordie band. (lol) They're good; they've got all the right trousers. Whether they've got the equipment to fill them though is a different matter."

Nicko: "I've seen Hi-on Maiden too. They were really good. Mind you I've got my own occaisional tribute band too: McBrain Damage. We do Maiden stuff, a bit of Ozzy as well."

Adrian: I played with one at a fan club convention in Holland: Hi-on Maiden. We did 'Two Minutes To Midnight'. But I forgot it, because I hadn't played for so long."

You can check out the whole article in the 'Spanish Inquisition' section on page 84 of the Jan 07 issue of Metal Hammer.

STOP PRESS !!!!!!!! Hi-on Maiden are Carrying On !!!

A lot of you may be aware that we announced last year that this would not only be our tenth anniversary, but also our final year.

Since making this statement, the response has been overwhelming. We have been inundated with hundreds of messages from fans asking us not to give up.

This had made us think long and hard about the future of the band, and I can proudly announce that Hi-on Maiden WILL BE CARRYING ON after this year!!!!

Thanks to everyone who sent messages of support, and helped us change our minds.

Here's to a long future for us and you ....

Thanks for all your support over the last 10 years .. here's to the next 10 !,

Speed, Big, Hurry, Swifty and Quicko.

The First Ten Years!!!

2005 marks our tenth anniversary, and we have decided to go all out and do more gigs than ever this year to celebrate.
There will be a new live CD and even a tour programme that will both be on sale shortly.
So have a look at the gig list and see where your nearest Hi-on Maiden gig is.

Seasons Greetings!!!

All of us at Hi-on Maiden would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Thanks to all of you who have supported us in 2004, and we will see you in 2005, our tenth aniversary year.

2005 Dates Added To Gig List.

I have just updated the gig list to include all the dates that are confirmed so far for next year.

There are loads of gaps still to fill, but confirmations are coming in all the time. The plan is to play every weekend, with August off for a break!!!
Please keep checking the list for further updates.
Cheers, Speed.

Belgium Update.

Ok, I have some more info regarding travel and tickets. Tickets for the first show are priced at 7 Euro's and can be bought on the night. Tickets for the second show are 12 Euro's and can be booked in advance. Check http://www.spiritof66.be/ticketsboo.html for availability and how to book.

The closest airport to the first venue is Frankfurt Hahn and is about an hours drive. Ryanair fly there regularly from London - check their website.

Cologne airport is also about an hours drive from the venue, and the promoter is pretty sure that Easy Jet fly there from the Midlands - Please check their website to confirm.

One last note, drinks over there apparently cost only 1.27 Euro's - thats roughly 89p a pint!!!!!

Hi-on Maiden Headline Another Metal Festival In The New Year.

We are Headlining a metal festival called Black Winter Day at The Colours Bar Bradford Uni on Jan 8th. There are 10 bands on the bill(!!!) and it all kicks off at 2pm. Tickets are priced at a very reasonable £6 and I will post more info on where you can obtain them as soon as I know. Click here for more info.

The rest of next years schedule will be posted in the gig guide sometime in December.

For Those Of You Coming To Belgium....

I know a lot of you have expressed an interest in coming over the water to see our shows in Belgium. those of you who haven't made up your minds yet, let me give you a little more info on the gigs - The first night, we are headlining a huge metal festival in St Vith that is held annualy, and the average crowd at these shows is around 2000. There will be several other bands on the bill, and it promises to be one hell of a night. The promoter assures me that the closest airport to St Vith is Frankfurt, and both Ryan air and Easy Jet run regular flights there from the UK. I have the number of a youth hostle there that provides very good accomodation at great prices (around 14 Euro's per person per night based on 4 sharing a room if I remeber right). The second night is in Verviers, which is just an hour up the road, so it will be quite easy to come to that gig too, and get back to the same hostle that night. The promoter has also talked about sorting out some transport for those of you who are travelling to and from the gigs, but would ideally like to know numbers etc in advance. If there is any other info you would like on the shows (tickets, times etc) then please contact me.

Cheers,

Speed.

Cardiff Date Moved.

Anyone coming to the gig at The Barfly In Cardiff, please note that the date has been moved from Thursday 25th to Sunday 28th of November. All tickets that have already been purchased will still be valid. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. Cheers, Speed.

Broadcast Date For End Of Story.

The BBC End Of Story programme on Shaun Hutson featuring Hi-on Maiden will be broadcast on BBC3 on the 31st of October at 7pm. Make sure you all watch it!!!

Stourbridge Date Confirmation.

There has been some confusion about the date of our gig next month at The Rock Cafe in Stourbridge. To cut a long story short, we had one date booked, they had another... The situation is now sorted: We are playing on the Sunday now, instead of the Saturday. As it's the 31st, it is going to be a massive Halloween spectacular, with metal disco, fancy dress etc. So even better!!!! See you all there.

Hi-on Maiden Headline Monsters Of Rock Festival!!!

Hi-on Maiden are topping the bill at The Monsters Of Rock (Of Ages) Festival in Leeds on November 6th. Other bands appearing on the night will be Bad Obsession, Motorheadache, Fisted Sister and possibly a Metalica tribute. Tickets are priced at £9.50, and will be available from the Rock Of Ages club in Leeds. Check out www.rockingfish.com for more info.

Quicko's Diaries Back On Track!!!

Quicko has been hard at work writing his diaries again to fill you lot in with what has been going on at our gigs. Click here for the latest news.

BBC Update.

The BBC are showing an End Of Story update program this weekend, following the success of the treasure hunts across the UK. We will be making a short appearance on this, about 20 - 30 seconds apparently, with the full footage being shown on the Shaun Hutson episode of the series in the Autumn.

The program is going out this Saturday 1st of May at 8:30pm on BBC Three, and being repeated on Friday 7th of May on BBC One at 12:30am (1am for viewers in Scotland).

HI-ON MAIDEN ON THE BBC!!!

The BBC contacted me the other day, to ask if we could help promote something they are doing called 'End Of Story'.

Here is an extract of the e-mail, to give you some idea of what it is all about:

"The BBC has commissioned 8 of the UK's top selling contemporary authors to take part in the biggest writing challenge ever attempted. Each author has written half of a short story of their choice, ranging from tales of romance to stories of suspense, crime and fantasy, and then members of the public across the UK are invited to take up the challenge of writing the best ending. The competition will be launched on Sunday 18th April on BBC 2 and BBC 3 and will run throughout the summer, with an eight part series following the entire process in the autumn.

As part of our attempts to encourage as many people as possible to get involved, the eight author's contributions have been published in a small, limited edition book which will be distributed the length and breadth of the UK at the time of the competition launch. These books will be the 'treasure' that everybody who would like to take part in the competition is invited to hunt for. The treasure hunt will be a huge nationwide event, which we hope will encourage members of the public to get involved in the competition."

Shaun Hutson, one of the famous authors who has written one of the short stories for the book, is a massive Iron Maiden fan, so the BBC thought it would be great to set up a 'treasure hunt' at one of our gigs, and film it for broadcast on the TV to help promote End Of Story.

This is going to take place at the next JB's gig on the 10th of April. So if you fancy the chance of getting your face on the telly, come along and take part in the treasure hunt for End Of Story.

Site Update!!!!

Loads of new pics have been added to the gallery!!! And if that's not enough, we have added 2 more songs from our Live 2002 CD for you to download free!!! So what are you waiting for?!?!?

HUGE APOLOGY TO THOSE WHO TURNED UP TO STRAWBERRY FIELDS IN GLASGOW.

The band would like to apologise to those of you who made it to Strawberry fields on Sunday night only to find that the gig was cancelled. The first the band knew about it was at 5:30 on Sunday evening when they turned up at the venue themselves. I received a call from Swifty asking me if the gig had been confirmed. I usually phone each venue ahead to check this out, but as I have been out of action for a few weeks, I had overlooked this. The promoter reckons the venue had been repossesed, and taked over by another manager, and so all of his gigs had been pulled. It would just have been nice, let alone curteous of him to inform me in advance!!! Once again, sorry for the inconvenience. I am currently in negotiations with the new owners to rebook something later on in the year.

Cheers, Speed.

I've gone and broken my wrist!!!!

I've just got back from the hospital, and I've got a F**kin cast on my arm!!! I'm out for a few weeks, but don't panic, we are working hard to find a stand in, but just to let you know, some gigs may have to be cancelled in the coming weeks. Details of any cancellations will be posted on here as soon as I know what they are. Sorry in advance to any fans and venues this may affect. Cheers, Speed.

***IMPORTANT INFO FOR THOSE COMING TO SATURDAYS GIG AT THE EHB IN LOUGHBOROUGH UNI***

Due to strict ticketing regulations set by the University, entry on the door is not permitted. They have agreed however, that to get round this, tickets can be purchased on the night from The Linford Restaurant next door to the Venue. People driving to this event will need to report to the University's main gate and collect a visitors pass for their car. Any vehicles not displaying a pass will be clamped. You have been warned!!! Cheers, Speed.

The venue has decided that it no longer wants to hold live music events. The promoters are looking for a new venue down that way, so I shall keep you posted with any further developments. The Bury St. Edmonds gig at The Grapes scheduled for the 28th of Feb and been moved to the 19th of June. The 28th has now been filled with a gig at The Cauliflower in Ilford. We have now secured 2 dates in Belgium for the end of the year, and we are currenlty looking into coming back to several of the European countries we have visited before. For up to the minute gig news, please keep checking the gig list. Thanks, Speed.

So I am in the process of setting up an account in my real name.

Don't worry, all of you will have the money refunded by paypal, and I will contact you all personally when it is all ironed out. Thanks for your patience in this matter.

HI-ON MAIDEN MENTIONED IN THE KERRANG! MAIDEN SPECIAL!!!!!

Hi-on maiden get a mention in the Kerrang! Maiden special on page 52. Click Here !

While being interviewed, Steve Harris is asked what he thinks about Iron Maiden tribute bands:

Have you ever been tempted to see an Iron Maiden tribute band?

Steve: �Yeah quite a few. Some of them are really good. There�s a band called Hi-on Maiden who play stuff for our fan club and they�re really close to the bone�.

Would you ever be tempted to do a guest spot with them?

Steve: �I did get up with them once in Portugal, but it felt very odd. I thought it would be a laugh, but when I got up there it just didn�t feel right without the rest of the boys. Their Steve Harris was good though. It was funny for me to stand and watch this guy in stripy trousers looking like a 25 year old version of me, playing all the notes I play�.

Guest appearance by Blaze Bayley!!!!!

Blaze Bayley was at our gig on Saturday night to promote his forthcoming gig at J.B's Dudley in December. We persuaded him to get up with us and perform The Clansman.

Special Guests At The Standard Gig On Friday....

Once again, thanks to all the fans who showed up and bought something in the auction on Friday at The Standard. We raised another �80 towards the Clive Burr Trust Fund. We had a few special guests turn up too!!! Clive Burr himself came down to see us!!! He signed all of the stuff that had been donated for auction and said he would like to personally thank all of you who donated to the fund or bought something at the auctions. Laz and Sue, from the IRON MAIDEN fan club also came along and brought Joe, Laz's 14 year old son. Joe is a wicked drummer, and so we let him guest on a couple of tracks. He played The Trooper and Wrathchild with us. He is so good, it sounded like Nicko himself was behind the kit!!! Well done Joe! At the end of the night, Clive came up on stage to thank everyone, and told us he had really enjoyed himself. Laz said he will be donating even MORE stuff for us to auction off in our forthcoming gigs. Cheers Laz, and cheers Clive for coming down. (Photo's from the night coming soon, so keep checking back)

The total raised on the night was �853!!! Clive and IRON MAIDEN were so pleased, that they would like to extend their thanks to all of you too. And not only that, they have also donated some more merchandise for us to auction off at this Fridays gig down at The Standard in London!!! So if you fancy getting your hands on some rare items similar to the ones mentioned above, then get your arses down to The Standard. (Mr. Di Anno may show his face too....)

Credit to the fans!

I would like to personally thank everyone who turned up at JB's for the Clive Burr charity gig especially Jan for being Eddie and the two guys with the blow up guitars for being completely mad! And also all the people who bought the maiden merchandise. Hopefully i should have some of the pics from the gig to put up pretty soon and the gallery up and running properly.
