Iron Maiden have shared a mini-documentary from behind the scenes of their recent Legacy Of The Beast tour. The band’s frontman, Bruce Dickinson, is the guide for the videos, aptly named Behind The Scenes With Bruce.

Among the many revelations, Dickinson reveals that the flamethrower backpack he uses on the show weighs around 30 pounds. “Sometimes I get a few burns on the hands because the thing won’t go out… I’ve got the hood down so people can’t see – and neither can I,” he said. “I have to get rid of the cape, and you have to really make sure it goes because it’s got stuck on the flamethrower a few times, and that’s really embarrassing.”

He also reports that he suffered from a “snotty” nose while singing, and he always had a cup of coffee at his prop station, although he hardly ever drank it. “I literally smell the coffee,” he jokes. “I go through between a litre and a half and two litres of water and I lose about three to three and a half litres during a show… I’m about a litre in deficit by the time I get back to the hotel, so I put that [back] on.”
