Steve Harris will be taking his solo/side project British Lion back out on the road briefly this year with a 10 date European tour starting on July 8th in Norwich and rounding off with an open-air show at the annual International Motorcycle Convention at the Moto Clube De Faro, Portugal on Saturday July 19th (full list of dates below). Tickets go on sale Monday April 7th at 10.00 am (11am local time ex-UK).

Comments Steve,

“As most fans know, I have strong ties with the Portuguese Moto Clube through our mutual friend Manu DaSilva, now sadly departed, who for many years ran Maiden’s Eddie’s Bar in Santa Barbara de Nexe near Faro. In fact the first ever British Lion live show we played was in the Clubhouse itself! When they invited us back this year, to play at the same festival Maiden headlined in 2011 in memory of Manu, it provided the perfect opportunity to schedule a few shows beforehand on our way down to Faro from the UK. We’re playing clubs again, same as we did last year, as we all really love the vibe and intimacy of getting up close and personal with the crowd. Although we would have liked to have visited more cities and countries on this run, it simply hasn’t been possible time-wise. This is for a number of reasons, probably of interest to Maiden fans!”

British Lion is Steve’s debut CD outside Iron Maiden. Featured alongside Steve on bass are Richard Taylor on vocals, David Hawkins on guitar and keys, Grahame Leslie on guitar, and Simon Dawson on drums. The album was mixed by Kevin Shirley [Maiden’s longstanding producer] and was released through EMI in September 2012.

99.9% that they'll head into the studio after this tour.

Yeah, I hope that means they'll be going into the studio soon after the summer tour finishes. I'd like to see this just to see Steve in a club setting.

I think that's the only reason anyone goes to these shows, only to leave disappointed when he doesn't play any Maiden songs.
