Iron Maiden Announce Second London Date at
Next month Iron Maiden will see out their current 'Maiden
England' European tour with their final UK date at London's O2
Arena. However after completley selling out in just under
12 minutes the Heavy Metal titans have now added a second London
date which will go ahead on Sunday 4th August.
"We've all been having such a fantastic time on this
tour," says Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson.
"From the very first show in North America last year to the
European dates we are doing now, it's just been tremendous fun. Our
fans have been brilliant as usual, and seem to be loving the
set-list and the stage production! So we thought that because this
tour has been such an amazing experience for band and fans alike,
it somehow seems right to finish up back home in England and have
the final show celebration on home-turf. And now instead of one
night's celebration back home we get to have two!!"
The band will also take extra steps to make sure their fans get
fair and proper access to tickets whilst not paying over the odds
through third-party and second hand brokers by announcing the show
will be totally ticketless.
"We are all very pleased to see the first show sell
out in such a short time so we can now round off this part of the
tour back home and celebrate for two nights instead of one," adds
band manager Rod Smallwood. "I am certain that both nights will be
memorable. We used Ticketless (Paperless) Ticketing on our North
American Tours in 2010 and 2012 and it worked extremely well and we
received many positive comments back from our fans. With Ticketless
(Paperless) Ticketing, only those who actually pay initially for
the tickets will get into the show so scalping is generally
avoided. We are also doing everything we can to avoid any drain of
tickets going to the Secondary Ticketing sites which we feel make
unfair profits from music fans and often lessen the number of
tickets available to these real fans, especially at the on
Following the O2 London dates, Iron Maiden will then take a
short break before venturing to North America, then Latin American
stadiums and the Rock In Rio festival in September. They will then
finish the tour off with a return to the Estadio Nacional in Chile
on October 2.
