Iron Maiden Selling T-Shirts To Help Japanese Red Cross
March 18th, 2011 9:57am EDT
British rockers Iron Maiden are selling off limited-edition t-shirts to raise funds for the relief effort in Japan, following last week's devastating earthquake and tsunami.
The band was travelling to Tokyo for two shows when the massive 9.0-magnitude tremor struck on Friday and they were forced to divert their jet to Nagoya in the wake of the disaster.
Both of their gigs were cancelled - but the stars are offering up t-shirts intended for sale at the concerts to benefit the Japanese Red Cross, which is working hard to provide aid for victims of the quake.
The garment features their mascot, Eddie, with the band's logo across the front, while the back displays the text "Japan 2011. The Final Frontier."
The rockers aren't the only stars selling merchandise to boost the relief fund - Linkin Park star Mike Shinoda has designed a special t-shirt, while Lady Gaga has already raised $250,000 from sales of a special bracelet.
