Iron Maiden add dates to summer tour

Iron Maiden have added a pair of dates to their European summer tour.

The band will return to Spain for shows at The Palau San Jordi, Barcelona on Tuesday May 27th, and The Bizkaia Arena at Bilbao Exhibition Centre on Thursday May 29th.

The fan club presale starts this Friday, March 7, with tickets going on sale to the general public on Monday, March 10.

The UK rockers also announced a venue change for their July 1st show in Luzembourg. Due to overwhelming demand, the concert will now be held at the 12,000 capacity main field at the Rock-A-Field Festival Ground, Roeser after the original location at
Rockhal sold out within two hours, the fastest ever sell-out time at this indoor venue. Swedish rockers Ghost will open the show.

Iron Maiden will kick off their 2014 live dates May 31 at the Fortarock Festival in Nijmegen, Netherlands.

The summer tour will round off the band’s Maiden England World Tour, which will end with a headline performance at the UK Sonisphere Festival in July as part of the 40th Anniversary celebrations at Knebworth Park.

By the end of the tour the band will have played 102 shows in 32 countries to well over two million fans since starting in the USA in June 2012.
