British metal legends IRON MAIDEN have announced they will be performing at the Gwardia Stadium in Warsaw, Poland on Thursday, August 7th as part of their Somewhere Back In Time World Tour 2008.

Guitarist Steve Harris says, "This will be a very special show for us for many reasons as the Powerslave Tour was the first time we visited Poland all the way back in 1985 which was a really big deal back then owing to the country being under Soviet rule at that time. Despite what many people told us to expect of life 'Behind the Iron Curtain' we found only the most friendly of welcomes from the fans in Poland some of whom would save up nearly a months wages just to get hold of one our records at that time. So ever since then we've always tried to make sure we got to Poland on every tour as the fans there always remind us of that amazing time."

Tickets go on sale Friday, December 14th via www.ticketpro.pl .
