For Immediate Release:

IRON MAIDEN
Auction launched to raise funds for former drummer, Clive Burr

Following three fantastic sell out nights at London's Brixton Academy; record breaking merchandising sales and a phenomenal chart breaking success with the single "Run To The Hills," Iron Maiden are proud to announce that they have already raised approaching a quarter of a million pounds sterling for the Clive Burr MS Trust. Both EMI Records and Zomba Music Publishers have also kindly donated their profits from their side of the single. Seen enclosed are key UK EMI Executives with Manager Rod Smallwood backstage at Brixton Academy presenting the band and Clive Burr with their cheque.

The sequence of events leading to the shows was the sad news last year that ex-member and friend, Clive Burr, revealed he was suffering Multiple Sclerosis while being interviewed for a documentary about their legendary Number Of The Beast album. The band immediately rallied together and performed the three special shows in London to an audience of fans that had traveled from the four corners of the world to show their support. All profits from the three shows were placed in the The Clive Burr Multiple Sclerosis Trust which is a fund that will not only help Clive and MS sufferers, but will also contribute to vital research into the debilitating disease which affects so many people.

To help raise more funds the band have decided to release from their own archives some very exclusive Memorabilia from their career spanning over 20 years to help raise further funds for the trust. Maiden's drummer Nicko McBrain is kindly donating his monster full performance Drum Kit.

The drum kit is his full Full 31 Piece Signia Marquee Premier Kit including Paiste Cymbals and is a chance of a lifetime opportunity to bid for a large piece of rock history. The kit has been used by Nicko on tour, at Festivals, TV performances (including their recent performance of "Run To The Hills" on Top Of the Pops) and drum clinics around the world spanning the last 8 years. The kit comes with stands and the drums are in Hardcase cases.

For the guitarists there is a Fender Stratocaster 'Iron Maiden' Signature Series Guitar signed by all members of the band including ex-drummer Clive Burr. The Iron Maiden guitars are part of a Limited Edition Stratocaster made by Fender to the specifications given by Dave Murray, Janick Gers and Adrian Smith. The Stratocaster features Seymour Duncan Pickups and Locking Floyd Rose Tremelo.

For the first time the band have decided to make available to the public an 'Eddie' stage prop from their 'No Prayer from the Road' Tour which is truly monstrous. The construction features an eight-foot high Eddie head and shoulders and two arms which were part of the Stage set where Eddie emerged from a huge on stage coffin similar to the No Prayer album cover.

The band have raided their storage facility and have unearthed rare Monsters Of Rock posters from their 1988 Headlining Monsters of Rock shows in France, Italy and Spain as well as a very rare 1985 Powerslave Tour poster for their sell-out shows at Radio City Hall in New York.

Also up for grabs are some exclusive Clive Burr Event T-shirts from the recent London Brixton Academy, which have been signed by the entire band and Clive Burr, and 20 signed copies of the Limited Edition Event Postergrammes. These items were signed specifically for this auction and are only available at the action -- you will not find these signed items anywhere else in the world!

This is the only official Iron Maiden auction and all the items are a must for eager collector. All proceeds will go to the Clive Burr Trust.

The auction will commence at Midday 12pm (GMT) on June 28th on EBay and will run for 10 days to give everyone plenty of opportunity to bid. The auction items will be listed on the Charities page on www.ebay.co.uk and will also be also listed on www.Ebay.com Full information on each of the items, including photographs, will be posted on the bands website, www.ironmaiden.com with direct links to the auction on Friday 28th June.
