Iron Maiden Embarks On A Tour Through The Final Frontier

Sunday, 13 June 2010

After an almost two year absence from American soil, the mighty Iron Maiden have returned with a vengeance. The band has just launched The Final Frontier World Tour, and will be playing twenty-two dates in select cities across the US and Canada before heading over to Europe for a handful of festival shows. As if that wasn't enough, Iron Maiden will also be releasing The Final Frontier, their first studio album in almost four years, on August 17th, 2010. To hold you over though, you can visit and download 'El Dorado', the first single from the highly anticipated record, and join the band's mailing list for up-to-the-minute updates.

As any self-respecting metal-head knows, the Iron Maiden live show is an experience not to be missed. From the triple guitar threat of Dave Murray, Adrian Smith, and Janick Gers, to the boundless energy and vocal cords of front man Bruce Dickinson, to the precision machine gun like bass of Steve Harris, there is no denying the unparalleled musicianship with which Maiden performs on a nightly basis. Throw in a back catalog that spans over thirty years, an always over the top light and stage show and a sure-fire appearance by a newly outer space themed Eddie, and it will easily go down as one of your favorite shows of the year.

Support for the shows will come from Dream Theater, another band that have had a much celebrated history in the world of metal. Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy comments, “Touring with Iron Maiden in North America is a bit of a dream come true for us! After twenty-five years together, at this stage in our career there's honestly only three bands Dream Theater would consider opening for… and Maiden is one of them! It is an absolute honor."

To help ensure that their fans get the fairest possible price and get as close to the stage as possible, Iron Maiden and their management have teamed up with Live Nation to offer paperless ticketing, which will help eliminate ticket scalping. Tickets for the shows can be purchased at .

So, with all that being said, how could you possibly miss Iron Maiden when they hit your town? That's right, you simply can't. Buy a ticket, support this truly legendary band, and most importantly, Up The Irons!!!
