Premier proudly presents An evening with Nicko
9 September 2011
Premier, the world’s leading manufacturer of drums and percussion, is proud to present ‘An evening with Nicko – a night of drums, drumming and entertainment with Iron Maiden’s Nicko McBrain’.
Nicko McBrain hardly requires an introduction. Having joined Iron Maiden in 1982, Nicko has become an established and charismatic figure within the music fraternity, renowned for his humour, showmanship and live performances. He has influenced many modern drummers over a wide range of styles.
Nicko first endorsed Premier back in 1993 choosing the company’s Signia kit, mounted upon a custom-built Falicon rack from America. Since then, Premier has supplied Nicko with a number of iconic custom kits to support Maiden’s world tours, most recently for ‘The Final Frontier World Tour’ which took the band across five continents playing to over two million fans right around the globe.
The evening promises entertainment from start to finish, appealing to players of all abilities and ages. Nicko will provide an insight into drumming for one of the world’s greatest rock bands, showcasing his technique and driven along by his larger than life personality. He will also be launching a series of Premier products, officially licensed by Iron Maiden and designed in collaboration with Nicko himself including drumsets, snare drums and authentic replicas of his tour kits. More information on this to follow.
Commencing in Burghausen, Germany on the 31st October, the tour runs through until the 18th November where Nicko will play at the Bush Hall, London and is presented in association with Paiste, Vic Firth, Remo and Rhythm magazine.
Nicko comments: “When Premier asked me to get involved with some design aspects on a new range of products, I was only too happy to oblige as I have the greatest respect for their workmanship and expertise. Collaborating with Premier has been a tremendous experience and we hope you’ll like the new ideas we’ve come up with! It’s been some time since I’ve been out doing any drum clinics so I’m really looking forward to these German and UK dates. It’ll be great to see some familiar faces again, and hopefully meet some new ones too. If you’ve never been before, come down and see for yourself what the evening’s all about. I promise you it’s a lot of fun and a great night out!”
