IRON MAIDEN

May 11th, 2007

Due to local noise level restrictions, the Open Air concert of Iron Maiden on June 17th, 2007 has to be moved indoors from the MSV Arena Duisburg to the ISS Dome Düsseldorf. In order to give their fans the full Maiden experience the band cannot accept a noise level restriction. Because the MSV Arena is located in a residential area, the air pollution caused by leisure events has to be reduced to an unacceptable level. Therefore the promoter has decided to move to Duesseldorf.

In acknowledgement of the 25 th anniversary of the release of their seminal album “The Number of the Beast” and the tremendous International success of their recent album “A Matter of Life and Death”, which was No 1 in Germany, Iron Maiden’s June dates will go under the banner of “A matter of the beast summer tour” . The band will be playing 5 songs from each of these albums plus many other fan favourites and will be taking out a full on stage production which will include the final appearances of Eddie’s notorious tank!!

Says vocalist Bruce Dickinson; “ Its always a lot of fun for us to play Summer shows. Most of the shows are outdoors with a real party atmosphere so its good to put together a set list that matches this. There has been a lot of  interest in the 25th anniversary of the release of Number of the Beast so we thought it would be great to give the fans a bit of extra Beast this summer so we will play songs like Number of the Beast and Run to the Hills and three others from the Number of the Beast album along with five songs from A Matter of Life and Death and a lot of other fan favourites like Fear of the Dark, Trooper and Wrathchild. ”

By moving indoors the fans will now have the advantage of seeing not only the entire Iron Maiden production but also the full light shows of all supports – In Flames, Papa Roach, Mastodon and Lauren Harris – that are not affected by daylight any more.

The Open Air show at Ludwighafen´s Südweststadion on June 8th will not be affected and will take place as scheduled.

Already purchased tickets will be valid for Duesseldorf.
