Maiden uniteD is an acoustic tribute to the legendary band Iron Maiden.
A project which Joey Bruers (Up the Irons) started at the Dutch fan club convention in 2006. They asked Joey to do a special show; something other than the regular tribute or cover band. With musicians from several bands he performed a set of rearranged acoustic Maiden songs. The reactions from the crowd were overwhelming. Steve Harris attended that convention and gave them two thumbs up.
The idea that became a show then became a project. A project called Maiden uniteD, because we hope to bring all kinds of musicians and fans from all over the world together to celebrate the music that has already united us for over three decades.
“Mind the Acoustic Pieces” is the first release of this project. An all-acoustic reinterpretation of the classic 1983 album 'Piece of Mind' with new arrangements and played by an impressive ensemble (Mike Coolen (Threshold, Headspace), Ruud Jolie (Within Temptation), Marco Kuypers (Cloudmachine), Damian Wilson, Joey Bruers and Anneke van Giersbergen).
