Guess we won't know til the show happens. The news and dates were straight from Iced Earth's MySpace fron only a day or two ago. It could be wrong, or it could be that things got switched around.

slayer can put on a good show, so can maiden, but i hear they usually don't play classic stuff, usually they mainly play new stuff, i think the new maiden can't compare to the old iron maiden, and if i was in spain, i would be going to that concert, and i would be getting messed up on weed
