Iron Maiden achieve gold-status with “The Book Of Souls”

Oct 16th, 2015

Iron Maiden is flying high and not only because they’ll fly to three shows in Germany in their own boeing 747-400 next summer.
No, with their album “The Book Of Souls”, which has been released last month, Iron Maiden not merely achieved #1 of the German Media Control Charts, but rather they head the new created, monthly vinyl charts.
Within these five weeks, the album already reached gold and therefore faster than ever before in the whole band history, as Warner reports in cooperation with Starwatch.This fact further strengthened the status of Iron Maiden as the corner stone of the entire genre.

This couldn’t be more awesome: IRON MAIDEN is confirmed as the first headliner for ROCKAVARIA and ROCK IM REVIER 2016! At the end of May 2016 the stage will be rocked again in Gelsenkirchen and Munich.
Limited early bird tickets are available for ROCK IM REVIER at EUR 125 incl. all fees, for ROCKAVARIA at EUR 139 Euro incl. all fees. Advance ticket sales start today at 12am on and Additional information on the festivals is provided on and

Bruce Dickinson comments: “We can hardly wait to get back out on tour! Maiden thrive on touring and playing to our fans, it’s what we enjoy the most. We look forward to returning to Germany. We haven’t decided on the set list as yet and won’t until we start rehearsing but we really look forward to playing a number of new songs live, especially as the recording of The Book of Souls was so much live. However, as it’s been a while since we saw you all, I am sure we will include plenty of older fan favourites too. I think the fans will be delighted by what we have in mind. We are also in the middle of creating the new show and rest assured we are working hard to bring you all something spectacular, something with a lot of heart !!! You certainly deserve it for your patience. We very much look forward to seeing you all at Rock im Revier and Rockavaria next year!

IRON MAIDEN will fly in with their own Boeing 747-400, piloted by vocalist Bruce Dickinson. The Jumbo Jet, christened “Ed Force One”, will carry band, crew and stage production and equipment over 90,000km around the world visiting around 35 countries.
