Maiden East Van

powerclown 1

The amazing Powerclown have been the world’s greatest Iron Maiden tribute band since 1978.

Near the end of an extensive 2001 comeback tour, Powerclown was recorded for posterity in performance at the Cobalt Hotel in Vancouver Canada.

The resulting 85-minute concert film remains a visceral document.

Powerclown at the top of their game.

All clown. All Maiden.

“…the band’s performance makes POWERCLOWN: MAIDEN EAST VAN worth watching. Powerclown doesn’t clown around when it comes to their devotion to Iron Maiden…Singer Dixie Di’Anno has a voice reminiscent of Jello Biafra’s, and aggressive tremolo perfectly suited to this genre of music. The Cobalt crowd looks entertained. One guy ecstatically recites Maiden lyrics as Di’Anno sings them. And eventually a topless girl does get up onstage, a clear sign that, by the end of the night, the band’s message of love was being received.”
