No Prayer on the Road is a concert tour by the British Heavy Metal Band Iron Maiden in support of their album No Prayer for the Dying. It is the first tour to feature Janick Gers, who replaced leaving guitarist Adrian Smith.[1] Following their large-scale stage shows used in the 1980s, the band opted for a less elaborate production from this tour onwards, with bassist Steve Harris commenting, "We thought the Seventh Son ... stage show just got a bit out of hand. I mean, the actual Eddie and the backdrops I thought looked amazing, but the giant icebergs and stuff were a bit naff, I think, and we just wanted to get away from all that and turn everything into like a massive club gig again, which we really managed to do. And having Janick in the band gave everybody a much-needed kick up the arse, too, because, being new, he was so enthusiastic about everything. I think it made us all open our eyes a bit and look at things in a new way."[2]

Opening bands[edit]

Opening bands for this tour were: Wolfsbane, Anthrax, The Almighty and King's X.
