Album Commentary

In 1986 Iron Maiden headed back on the road again in support of Somewhere In Time, their most adventurous release since Killers. For this tour, the band made use of guitar synths. The tour was not as long or grueling as the World Slavery Tour had been, but featured an extensive stage set which was loosely based on the futuristic Somewhere In Time album cover complete with a cyborg Eddie. This tour also featured he first appearance of Michael Kenny (Steve's tech) on keyboards to augment the sound. An undeniable highlight of the show was an unaccompanied guitar solo played by both Dave and Adrian loosely based on a tune called "Walking In The Air".

Bands opening for Maiden at this time were: Killer Dwarfs, Yngwie Malmsteen, Waysted and Vinnie Vincent Invasion.
