British heavy metal legends Iron Maiden have announced that the money made from the sales of their Japanese event shirts will be donated to a charity assisting victims of the recent Sendai earthquake and tsunami. A message from the band's manager Rod Smallwood reads as follows:
"Following the cancellation of both Maiden Tokyo shows due to recent events in Japan, we will be donating the proceeds from sales of the Japanese event shirt available from the Official Iron Maiden Shop (ie. the shirt without tour dates on) to a charity assisting victims of the earthquake. Feedback from our Fanclub Forum suggests our fans fully support this proposal.
"We plan to do likewise with the stock of event shirts currently in Tokyo, which were due to be sold onsite at the Tokyo venue (ie. the shirt with tour dates on). Details will follow as soon as possible as to where these will be available from, once we have worked out shipping, etc.
"The charity we shall be coordinating sales of both events shirts through is the Japanese Red Cross. This is their website for anyone who may want to make a donation.
"Shirts are now available at this location."
