Iron Maiden Unveil “Flight of Icarus” Live Video Featuring a Flamethrower-Wielding Bruce Dickinson

0

Hot take: Piece of Mind might be my favorite Iron Maiden album. I say “might be” only because The Number of the Beast is certainly up there, as is the band’s shocking 2000 return to form, Brave New World… but if the question is “Which Iron Maiden album would you put on if you had to choose one?” the answer would probably be Piece of Mind. It’s just got all the jams, man!

Maiden are celebrating their upcoming tour of North America, Canada and South America with a live clip of one of my favorite Piece of Mind slappers, “Flight of Icarus.” The footage was filmed during the European leg of this same Legacy of the Beast tour so I’m hoping we see something like this stage show Stateside, especially the dual flamethrowers mounted to Bruce Bruce’s arms. He’s positively drenched in sweat here, and those things can’t be helping him out, but it’s all a part of the sacrifice Bruce puts his body through on a nightly basis.
