THE POWER TUBE RETURNS
Whether with Wolfsbane, Iron Maiden, Blaze or under his full name Blaze Bayley - with his powerful voice, the singer from Birmingham has left deep musical footprints in the metal scene over the past three and a half decades. Between 2009 and 2014, Blaze was our guest no less than six times. In May 2022, he will finally rock the Z7 once again. Until then, we can get in the mood for his long-awaited return with the new album "War Within Me".
At the latest since his engagement with Iron Maiden, which lasted from 1994 to 1999, the whole metal world knows the singer Blaze Bayley. In this period, two albums "The X Factor" (1995) and "Virtual XI" (1998) were produced and diligently toured the world. Hymns from this phase like "Sign of the Cross" or "The Clansman" are still on Iron Maiden's setlist today. However, die-hard fans know Blaze Bayley for a decade longer. He has been active with his own band Wolfsbane since 1984. A show with Wolfsbane in the opening act of Iron Maiden was finally decisive for Bayley to become Bruce Dickinson's successor.
After Dickinson returned to Maiden at the turn of the millennium, Bayley and the band parted ways. However, the singer did not let it get him down. He launched his own project Blaze, with which he released four albums. Besides, he also reformed his old band Wolfsbane and, to the delight of fans, did some shows with the first Maiden singer Paul DiAnno, where the two old fighters sang their way through the repertoire of their former employer.
From 2007 his albums appeared under the name Blaze Bayley. With the new album "War Within Me" there are already 15 in number. In May 2022 Blaze Bayley will finally be back on stage in Pratteln. And even three and a half decades after the start with Wolfsbane, the musician is still bursting with energy and joy of playing and shines with his power tube that makes many a young shouter lose his hearing and sight.
