Iron Maiden Open Show With Dramatic WWII Fighter Plane Flyover
The Supermarine Spitfire Mk16, registration TE311 / 4DV, is maintained by the Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight. Maiden's show was previously billed as the only UK show on the current leg of their Maiden England tour, which focuses on the set they delivered while promoting classic album Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son.
But at the end of the performance they announced they'd be playing London's O2 on August 3. Frontman Bruce Dickinson explained: "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. The 02 is a great venue to play with a really fantastic vibe, so we're really looking forward to this show being one almighty party." See video of the flyover here and read more.
