The metal band’s fifth record (released back in 1984) will be the focus of the 666th edition of Tim Burgess’s virtual listening party series, which was launched on March 23, 2020 as Britain recorded its first national lockdown.
Frontman Bruce Dickinson will offer a track-by-track run-up of the record with his bandmates on February 12 at 9 pm GMT.
Speaking in a video announcement for the listening party, Dickinson promised that he would reveal “some interesting secrets” about ‘Powerslave’ on the night. “And it’s going to be fun,” he said.

Burgess explained: “We started these listening parties at the beginning of the first lockdown and thought we would do some of them for a week until everything was back to normal. Nick Mason hosted our Saucerful of Secret party to celebrate our 500th and someone tweeted that we should mark the 666th as a special occasion.
“Naturally, we tweeted Iron Maiden and they said they would love to join us.”
Other acts due to attend ‘Tim’s Twitter listening parties’ in the coming weeks include Mogway, Barry Gibb, The Bangles, The Go-Go, Kurt Willey and Jane Weaver. You can find more information here.
Last October, Bruce Dickinson revealed that Iron Maiden was working on new material at the studio.
“Well, we’re doing bits of writing,” he said. “I’m talking to Steve [Harris, bass]. We are working a little together in the studio. On whom, I cannot tell you, because they must kill me. “
He Continued: “All our crew are on board with us. Apparently, after the cancellation of the show and the rescheduling of the show this year, all our lives were canceled. The killer crew is still on board by the time we resume normal service next year. “
