Lady Gaga thrilled the members of veteran British metal act Iron Maiden on Sunday when she popped backstage to say hi to them at a show in Tampa, Florida.
The meeting was top secret until the pop star posted a photo of her with Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain on her account with a caption that read, “Sexy Beast. 666.”

She referenced Bruce Dickinson’s rockers a week before in her 666th tweet, writing, “The Number of the Beast. Having beers listening to Maiden w the New York Boys. Happy 666 Twitterland.”

Gaga used to perform to Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath tunes when she was a go-go dancer at the beginning of her career.
