London: Iron Maiden are reportedly selling off limited-edition t-shirts to raise funds for the relief effort in quake and tsunami-hit Japan.

The band was travelling to Tokyo for two shows when the magnitude 9 tremor struck and were forced to divert their jet to Nagoya, reports a website.

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.
