Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has posted the following update online, on which he comments on the band's forthcoming slot opening for Iron Maiden in Chile.

"There's no one bigger than Iron Maiden in South America. I've seen the DVD footage of their shows down in that part of the world, and to actually get to open for them ANYWHERE is amazing! But down there? Absolutely spectacular!

"We'll be playing Santiago with my heroes — a band whose songs we were covering at backyard parties — in front of 65,000 people! Suddenly we all got a big second wind! Stoked beyond belief is an understatement!"

Exodus will open for Iron Maiden on April 10, 2011 at Estadio Nacional in Santiago, Chile.
