I can try and flick through the FC mags from around the Virtual XI time and see if they did something similar. I doubt it though - because at the end of that tour, and before they even had time to publish diaries etc, they were already thinking about a reunion with Bruce I believe :lol:
It would be interesting to see what you can find. I do know that from october 2nd onward there were tour entries from different band members (Steve, Dave, Nicko and Rod) but I do not know if before that they published something in the FC Magazines as I have never seen those magazines around that era. Also, as I said and you also see, I think they were thinking about bringing Bruce to the fold.

I forgot that Ed Hunter was originally going to be called "Melt" and it was delayed for years
The best part is that it was delayed so that it would have "cutting edge graphics" and such and it was just a rail shooter. It was Virtua Cop or Duck Hunt with Eddie instead of Ducks. Legacy of the Beast is a shitty freemium mobile game and is legitimately better than Ed Melter.

For some reason my version of Ed Hunter always crashed when you got to the end of the level with Hallowed in it. Tried several PCs over time and I have 2 different copies of Ed Hunter* and it still crashed on every different version.

*the us version has a hidden bonus version of Wrathchild with fresh vocals from Bruce overdubbed in 1999.

It's such a shame too. Licensed games are basically never good, but imagine the possibilities of a fully 3D FPS featuring Eddie and proper recreations of the album cover art. It might've still sucked, but at least it would've been something.

Very interesting Rock in Rio tv version:
Bruce breaking the zip line at the begining of the Wickerman (not in the dvd) I guess was for the excitement of the moment
Steve singing the chorus in Wrathchild…something scary (the adrenaline was so high…)

He ripped the camera because it was in his way although Maiden's production team had established WAY before hand where ALL the cameras should be. By the way, that camera was supposed to film Nicko and, because he ripped it, there's no much takes of Nicko in the official DVD
