Iron Maiden at Madison Square Garden in 2010 (more by Justina Villaneuva)
Iron Maiden

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 (dates listed below), 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".
Iron Maiden will play shows with Alice Cooper on some dates and Coheed & Cambria on others. Look for Alice Cooper at both NYC area shows: June 28th at Jones Beach and July 2nd at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Maiden will release details on fan presales in the near future via their website, but ticketing info is otherwise unavailable.

Alice Cooper is also playing Bonnaroo this year.

All Iron Maiden tour dates and some video from that production in 1988, below.

"Still Life" (Dave Murray, Harris)
"Die with Your Boots On" (Dickinson, Harris, Smith)

Oh fuck yes. Aside from doing the Powerslave tour AGAIN, this is about as good as I could have hoped for. Great setlist, their prime shit imo. Hard to believe they won't toss in at least one or two from Powerslave, but who fucking cares, I'm going! \m/

What's with all these shows lately happening outside NYC? Such a pain in the ass to get out to LI or NJ.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2012 12:33 PM

Metal is suburb music. That's why sausage bands like they gents play LI and NJ. More sausage fresh meat to hook up with after the show.

wonder how much tix will be

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2012 1:52 PM

12:37 - I thought they play out there because the rent is cheaper than MSG? Hm. I do know that when metal does play MSG, it usually sells out, and is a tough/expensive ticket to get.
This was the case for both Iron Maiden and AC/DC the last times they each hit MSG.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2012 2:33 PM

if you think maiden is 'sausage music' you obviously don't know them at all. in truth, they're probably playing those venues b/c last time around, they didn't. they expressly mentioned that they are trying to hit stops this time around that they missed on previous tours, so it makes sense. they give a fuck about their fans, too.

Thank you for making my evening.

the sausage comments are about as funny as the hummus comments at this point. middle school is clearly a really comfortable socio-comedic era for many of you to reside in.

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2012 3:52 PM

True story - on grocery days, I get a bag of Dole salad (very vegetable), a tub of Sabra pine nut hummus, a packet of specialty chicken sausage, and a bag of pita bread, and I make awesome sausage hummus pita wrap things. All this talk of hummus and sausage, and I think someone needs to state the obvious - two great tastes that go great together.

^ hey doofus, I know that you are dick-drunk from all the sausage you accept up your ass, and all the jiz you enjoy, so maybe you don't notice that metal shows are the ones filled with sweaty, angry uncomfortable-in-their-own-skin male baboons. You all do that whack-a-doodle in the bathroom during the show hoping that sweaty sausage next to you would just please touch fronts during "Run To The Hills".
Prove that I'm wrong, sausage boy.
