Iron Maiden während Ozzfest attackiert

Iron Maiden während Ozzfest attackiert

Während ihres Auftritts im Rahmen des Ozzfestes wurden Iron Maiden am 20.August auf offener Bühne heftig von Publikum und Crew attackiert. Zunächst spielten für den Sound verantwortliche Techniker am Anfang und Ende des Gigs Tapes mit "Ozzy, Ozzy"-Rufen ein, an wichtigen Stellen wurde der Strom der Band abgestellt. Aus dem Publikum flogen Eier und zur Krönung rannte ein Typ mit einer US-Flagge auf die Bühne.

Die Band blieb unter diesen Umständen kämpferisch und schaffte es, immer besser zu werden. Inmitten von "The Trooper" und unter Geschossen aus dem Publikum, stellte Dickinson sich an den Rand der Bühne, hob den Union Jack hoch und brüllte das Publikum an: "Das hier ist eine verdammte britische Flagge und diese Farben werden niemals zerfließen!"

Was war der Grund? Die offizielle Ozzfest-Webseite beschuldigt Dickinson abfällig über Ozzy geredet zu haben, angeblich ist Dickinson ein Mensch, welcher "nicht den Ozzfest-Spirit besitzt". Die Band sieht sich dagegen als Opfer einer Verschwörung, ausgeheckt von Leuten, die sie nicht mögen.

Kann mir mal einer bitte erklären, wie die Festivalbesucher es schaffen, rohe Eier mit aufs Gelände zu nehmen? Ich meine, wer will schon ganze Zeit solche Teile in seinen Taschen rumfahren habe ...

jo...und das Management wollte sich auch mal gleich dazu äußern: "I would however like to add my own comment on this. In 30 years in this business and after attending hundreds of gigs l have never seen anything anywhere near as disgusting and unprofessional as what went on that night. I was standing on our sound desk out front as usual but ran to the stage as soon as the hail of missiles began and from then on watched from the front of the stage right next to Bruce's walkway. The scale, viciousness and concentration of the throwing made it obvious that this was a premeditated and co- ordinated attack. Assaulting musicians while performing by throwing bottle tops, lighters and eggs at them from just a few yards away is vile, dangerous, criminal and cowardly. It is incredible that Ozzfest security apparently did nothing about it - aren't they there to protect the bands too? Especially when the band is concentrating on a performance in front of 45,000 people and the missiles are coming out of the glare of the spotlights. And to spit at a band on stage is unforgivable. Iron Maiden, like all the bands on Ozzfest, had to sign quite onerous legal documents part of which was promising not to throw anything into the audience, even wristbands!!! Ironic isn't it. It is well documented on the web who was responsible for planning and participating in this attack and for musicians to join in this assault on other musicians is a shocking disgrace akin to treachery. You should all be thoroughly ashamed of yourselves. We know who authorised the making of the 'ozzy - ozzy' chant tape the day before and how it was played secretly through the PA at the very beginning and end of our set. We also know who continually turned off the power interrupting our set at crucial moments. It is a good thing that the power was turned back on before there was a riot as you could sense on stage a lot of the huge audience were getting totally pissed off at this continual onslaught on the band. The great majority of the Ozzfest crew throughout the tour were terrific and we thank them. Those who participated or stood idly by and watched as this all went down should also be ashamed of themselves and l would certainly hope they never come near a tour with which we are involved. There is little point in my commenting on the chap with the flag or their trying to hold up Eddie or Sharon's speech as the audience made their feelings very clear on each occasion. And in the end what was all this about?? If l had any sort of problem or misunderstanding with a band working on a tour we were involved in l would go and talk to them or their manager - not wait until the end of a tour and assault and ambush them. Or was that really it? I find it staggering that this ambush would take place in front of any audience, let alone in San Bernardino, the biggest audience of the tour. Didn't that audience merit any consideration? They pay an awful lot to be there in terms of prices for tickets, parking, food, beer etc. Surely if they spend this sort of money they deserve to watch the bands they paid to see be able to put in a full unhindered performance. Free of danger and intimidation. If I had paid I would ask for my money back! And this audience really were outstanding, giving the band incredible support and many voting with their feet in disgust after the set and the speech, which to many was the final insult. I have to say l was immensely proud of Maiden who stood up to it all and showed great courage and just got better and better through the adversity. Their heads never dropped, instead they went on the offensive. It was a truly memorable moment when Bruce went to the very front of the stage during Trooper - something which he never normally does as he is usually on the ramps - waving the flag whilst avoiding the hail of missiles and yelling 'This is a fucking British flag, and these colours don't fucking run!'. The imperturbable attitude and ability of the band shone through and in the end made this a truly remarkable rock and roll event, even if for all the wrong reasons. We will have no more to say on this matter except that l do think the band deserve an apology from a number of people, and you know who you are." ROD SMALLWOOD MANAGER, IRON MAIDEN CHAIRMAN, SANCTUARY ARTIST MANAGEMENT
