Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrian recently delivered news that brought out the inner 'Eddie' in every Maiden fan. He announced that the band plans to tour in 2012.

In an interview at the 2012 NAMM convention in Anaheim, Calif., McBrain told 96.7 KCAL Rocks that the band has a tour in their sights. “Well, we’re taking some time off and we’re gonna go back out on tour sometime this year. We’re not sure yet when.” He went on to say that it probably won’t be a world tour this time around, only a “little tour” and a “short run.”
