Iron Maiden Gives Concerts for Pirates

Iron Maiden Gives Concerts for Pirates

Piracy is a hot topic in the music industry, with major labels trying to eliminate the problem by taking infringers to court. At the same time Iron Maiden has taken a different approach to piracy – instead of suing their fans, the band is using file-sharing data to plan their tour locations.


Lots of researches have shown that file-sharers usually spend more on legitimate purchases, especially tickets to live performances and merchandise. The matter is that “pirates” are more engaged than people who don’t share, and they complement their legal purchases with illegal downloads.

Apparently, the file-sharers are the artists’ best customers, and it is clear that instead of suing them, it may be more rewarding to give them concerts. This is what Iron Maiden has been doing – they use the services of music analytics company Musicmetric to see where their albums are most pirated. When musicians understand what drives engagement, they are able to maximize the value of the fan base. Instead of launching lawsuits against illegal file-sharers, Iron Maiden used the information as input for its tours. For example, the band is most popular among Brazilian pirates and in Chile. Their recent tour had a heavy focus on South America, because the band also has lots of Twitter followers there. When the band played in Paraguay for the first time, the gigs were sold out throughout the region.

According to the music analytics company, the file-sharing information helped the band turn pirates into paying customers simply by heading over there and playing for them. Everyone understands that it’s impossible to download the true experience of a live performance, so the pirates will turn up. If artists engage with fans, there’s always a chance to turn a percentage into paying customers. This can be seen through different bands using the BitTorrent network in a legitimate and official way to share content. It is also pleasant to see that instead of hunting down file-sharers for lawsuits, the information can be used by musicians to plan their tours. It is also a more positive way to treat your fans – play for them instead of trying to bankrupt them in court.

Original source CITEworld has retracted their story, issuing this statement: “Due to writer error, an original version of this article stated that Iron Maiden used MusicMetric’s analysis to plan its South American tours. MusicMetric did not work directly with Iron Maiden. The analysis described in this article was carried out without the band’s participation or knowledge, and we have no confirmation that the band ever saw or used it. CITEworld deeply regrets this error, and we apologize to our readers

See the blood begin to flow
As it falls upon the floor
Iron Maiden can't be fought
Iron Maiden can't be sought

Oh well, wherever, wherever you are
Iron Maiden's gonna get you, no matter how far
See the blood flow, watching it shed up above my head
Iron Maiden wants you for dead

RUN TO THE HILLS my friend before it's too late.. Muah, ha, ha, ha.

ShadowTek avatar"Woe to You Oh Earth and Sea
For the Devil sends the beast with wrath
Because he knows the time is short
Let him who hath understanding
Reckon the number of the beast
For it is a human number
Its number is six hundred and sixty six."

Embolism avatarlove maiden and have the T-shirt from the 80`s when number of the beast was first released as well as a framed vinyl from Samson when Bruce played with them before Maiden I for one would have supported them in using p2p to spread news of venues and even sound bites of new works to promote them but such is not to be,not that it`s not a good idea for either new bands or established bands to do so since not all on p2p are pirates and it is a legitimate transport with over 20 million users.

Embolism avatarAzureus/Vuze have been showcasing new artists on their clients for sometime,but if they had the backing of recognized artists like Iron Maiden and others it would further legitimize P2P,the corporations would not allow it though as free publicity and distribution of their work through P2P would save millions in advertising and distribution and make their music more affordable down the line to the end user,thereby losing the corporations millions in revenue.
Technically speaking it would mean more profit to the musicians and less to the corporations that they are owned by,obviously the cd`s they distribute for 10 to 15 GBP and which cost about 10-20 pence each would be redundant as well unless you wanted to back up the album,,,,,,,I think musicians would go for it but once under contract they can do nothing but play on to the benefit of the corporations.

cggc avatarif they are handling their marketing and make your own concert promoter perhaps today with the internet the concert leaves more money.
60000 people concert with his hotdog and drink figures could reach a good atmosphere.
personally bluray has the best quality and compact disc albums do not have the levels of paired music and may vary slightly since heard.
bluray format requires a lot of space and help tricks but not all in small appliances.
iron maiden imagination makes me think of the damage but is happy as a soccer goal with his black black sensationalism also Metallica group.
