Have you guys heard of Lauren Harris, daughter of Iron Maiden bassist/founder Steve Harris? Well, she’s currently on tour with the almost 30-year-old band…

Lauren Harris, the 23-year-old daughter of Iron Maiden bassist and founder Steve Harris is currently opening for the British heavy metal band on their 2008 Somewhere Back in Time World Tour.

Lauren was originally discovered in a pub by a British musician who had no idea her father was already in the business. Lauren’s debut album Calm Before the Storm, will be released on June 23. In the tradition of her father, it is categorized as a heavy metal, or ‘powerpop,’ album.

The Somewhere Back in Time World Tour supports the DVD release of Iron Maiden’s 1985 concert video Live After Death along with their 2008 greatest hits compilation Somewhere Back in Time—The Best Of: 1980-1989. The tour is essentially a recreation of the band’s 1985 World Slavery Tour and the stage is again designed along an Ancient Egyptian theme with the set list primarily taken from 1984 album Powerslave…I think it’s time for Miss. Harris to find her own tour.

The tour kicked off in Mumbai, India on February 1, 2008 and hits DC this Wednesday, June 18 at Merriweather Post Pavilion.
