Iron Maiden and Megadeth Plan American Tour and One-Off Festival

04/09/2013
.
Iron Maiden will be launching a North American mini-tour with support from Megadeth this September which will include a new heavy metal festival in Southern California.

The seven-date tour will kick off with the band's very first concert in Raleigh, NC on September 3rd and will conclude with The Battle Of San Bernardino on Friday the 13th that will also feature Anthrax, Testament, Overkill and Sabaton at the San Manuel Amphitheater (formerly the Blockbuster/Glen Helen Pavilion) in San Bernardino, CA.

After the U.S. dates the band will be heading to Brazil to once again headline the Rock In Rio Festival. 70,000 tickets to the September 22nd event sold out within hours.

Frontman Bruce Dickinson had this to say, "As Maiden fans know, we're going back to Brazil to headline Rock In Rio again, so we thought that on our way down south we should certainly stop off and do a few more shows in the U.S. We especially wanted to try and play some more cities we've not visited for a while, so we're really excited about seeing our fans again in places we've not been to in over a decade, and in some cases even longer! We hope they will remember us!

"We can't wait to launch the Battle of San Bernardino for our Southern California fans! It really will be a day to remember for south Cal Metal fans. Friday 13, 13 too! Double Trouble!!

"We'll be bringing with us the same full production we had on the Maiden England Tour in North America last year so fans can expect to see the huge lightshow, stage set, various incarnations of Eddie, plenty of pyro and all kinds of other exciting stuff."
Steve Harris adds, "We know how popular the History of Maiden Tours are with fans of all ages and we love visiting cities we haven't been to in many years as it gives us a chance to play to new audiences. We had a huge amount of fun with the set list for this Maiden England Tour when we opened in North America last year as we got to play songs we had not played in a very long time like 'Seventh Son,' 'The Prisoner' and 'Afraid To Shoot Strangers,' as well as fan favourites like 'The Trooper,' 'Aces High,' 'The Clairvoyant,' 'The Number Of The Beast,' 'Wasted Years' and 'Run To The Hills.' That opening leg of the tour was so enjoyable for the whole band, we're really looking forward to coming back to see our fans again and a lot of new faces too! "
