Album Commentary

The Virtual XI tour was Iron Maiden's second and final world tour with Blaze Bayley at the helm. Like The X Factour, Maiden generally played to smaller audiences than in years past, especially in the U.S. However, the shows were as powerful and energetic as ever, featuring old songs as well as most of the songs from their new album Virtual XI. Unfortunately Blaze once again allegedly suffered allergy problems which caused the entire last half of the U.S. tour to be cancelled. This was to be Bayley's last tour with Maiden since it was announced a few months after the abrupt end of their tour that both Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Smith would be returning to Iron Maiden.
