After the tremendous response from fans to the news that IRON MAIDEN will bring their highly-anticipated Maiden England World Tour to the Southland this summer, the band has announced a second Los Angeles-area show. The group will now play two nights at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater: first on August 9th and then a just-added Friday, August 10th performance.
Tickets for IRON MAIDEN’s August 10th Verizon Wireless Amphitheater show will go on sale Friday, March 30th at 10 AM. They will be available at LiveNation.com, Ticketmaster.com, as well as at select Live Nation and Ticketmaster retail outlets, plus via Charge-By-Phone (800.745.3000). Fan Club members should check out ironmaiden.com for exclusive first day ticket presales and a contest to be “First To The Barrier.”
Following the massively successful Final Frontier World Tour 2010-11, IRON MAIDEN are back on the road this summer with a series of arena, amphitheatre and festival shows in the U.S.A. and Canada, opening in Charlotte, NC, U.S.A. on June 21, and finishing in Houston, TX, on Aug 18 to be followed by further dates around the World in 2013. The Maiden England World Tour will closely mirror, in terms of production and content, the original 1988 concert video of the same name, shot on the Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son Tour.
Maiden England marks the third chapter in the History of IRON MAIDEN, a journey which began in 2004 with The Early Days DVD and subsequent 2005 Early Days Tour. Part Two followed in 2008 with the Live After Death DVD – the seminal 1984 concert recorded at Long Beach Arena (L.A) during the World Slavery Tour – and the band embarking on their ground-breaking Somewhere Back in Time World Tour 2008/9, which saw them play to over two million fans in almost 40 countries.
Comments vocalist Bruce Dickinson, “We have great fun playing the History of MAIDEN Tours because it gives us an opportunity between new albums to go out and play songs from our earlier catalogue. It’s always fantastic seeing the crowd reaction from a new generation of fans who have never experienced some of these tracks performed live before, and of course we know our longstanding fans will enjoy seeing the original Seventh Son Tour re-visited – with many other surprises! Our intention is to play about two thirds of the original track list of Maiden England, including some songs we have not played live in a very, very long time, plus other favourites we just know the fans are going to want to hear! We always try to give our fans a great show musically, but we have always tried to make it as entertaining and memorable an experience as we can visually. And we all feel this show is going to do that splendidly! We can’t wait to get started in Charlotte”.
