Iron Maiden to headline Sonisphere in Turkey

Iron Maiden continue their Final Frontier World Tour with a newly announced slot as headliners at the Turkish edition of the Sonisphere festival.

Maiden join Slipknot, Alice Cooper, Mastadon, In Flames and more for the show, which happens Sunday, June 19 at Kucukciftlik Park in Istanbul.

The 2011 portion of the tour has been difficult for Maiden, as they were forced to cancel two shows in Japan due to the earthquake and tsunami; last weekend, the band stopped a show in Rio during the first song when the stage barricade was broken by fans, and they played a make-up show there the following night.
