Iron Maiden Sells Out Canada

Band Photo: Iron Maiden (?)

IRON MAIDEN's official web site has been updated with the following message:

"The IRON MAIDEN shows in Western Canada have now sold every available ticket in each market in just four days. The band encourages any non-ticket holders to check back in a couple weeks and just before the show as production releases may become available when the stage has been set in each arena, check with your local box office or www.ironmaiden.com for further updates. Even if some tickets may have to be stamped with a slightly restricted side view, fans will still be able to experience the incredible communal atmosphere of a MAIDEN concert."

Commented vocalist Bruce Dickinson: "We are truly overwhelmed by this response, especially as some of these cities we haven't played in 20 years!! Being Brits we are always very comfortable with Canadians and it will be a great pleasure to get back on the prairies again. It was always a LOUD response there! We look forward to this immensely and hope to give you all a show to remember."

Iron Maiden can sell out a whole country because they are that badass, just look at their tour jet to realize their awesomeness. And no, the WGA got those coupons and free bubblegum. I can see it now, thousands of canadians bobbing their flapping heads and beady little eyes to The Trooper.

Iron Maiden, yet another legendary metal band. I am so glad I can hopefully see them this year. It is going to be mind-blowing. I have seen Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, and now Maiden...awesome!

Dudes since i heard "Run To The Hills" back in '99 i cant stop listening to Iron Maiden. They are definitely one of a kind. For the first time ever i saw Maiden live last month at the ACC in Toronto. It was jawdropping plain and simple. There is no better band so if you getthe chance GO SEE THEM, they will blow your mind! Maiden Canada loves ya!
