Steve Harris will be taking his new solo/side project BRITISH LION out on the road next month visiting fourteen countries and twenty four cities across Europe, starting in Portugal on Feb 21. For the first time ever, and as a major surprise to many, IRON MAIDENís bass player, founder member and leader will be taking temporary leave from his Maiden activities and heading out on a full European Club tour. (full schedule and details below)

Steve comments ďI love touring and live shows and Iím very excited about touring with BRITISH LION. Itís fantastic to get out there and once again experience the sheer vibrancy of small clubs with the fans right up front and in your face. I think the fans will enjoy that too. Itís exciting, going back to the roots, and itís going to be fantastic. We are taking this to clubs all round Europe - a full club tour, with club shows at club prices, hot, sweaty and loud . We have no idea how many people will turn out to see us as itís obviously very recent and very new, so we have kept the venues small with tickets priced accordingly as low as we reasonably could.

Iíve known all the guys in the band for ages and, besides being great musicians, they are also good friends, which is lucky because this has been an ongoing project for many years! Theyíve had to be very patient with me as, of course, Iím so involved with Maiden I donít really get a lot of free time to work on other stuff. So itís great to finally have the opportunity to get out and do all these shows. The reaction to the album has been really good and I think it will sound great live. Weíre all planning to have a lot of fun on this tour!Ē

BRITISH LION is Steveís debut CD outside IRON MAIDEN and was released by EMI in September 2012. Featured alongside Steve are Richard Taylor on vocals, David Hawkins on guitar and keys, Grahame Leslie on guitar, and Simon Dawson on drums. The 10 track album was mixed by Kevin Shirley [Maidenís longstanding producer] and has been pronounced both ďbrilliantĒ and ďa big hearted ferocious triumphĒ by the music press who also commented that although itís stamped with Steveís inimitable style, itís also very different to Maiden, so fans will be in for a whole new experience seeing and hearing these new songs played live.
