IRON MAIDEN walked away this evening with a gong for Best British Live Act at the 2009 BRIT Awards. The award was chosen by listeners of BBC Radio 2. Being on the road, the band were unable to attend and were forced to thank their fans in a video, standing in front of their huge skeleton mascot, Eddie.
Singer Bruce Dickinson said: “We couldn’t keep this entire show on the road without our fans. They’re the people that keep this band alive. And I do hope that Eddie doesn’t get too jealous.”
