Iron Maiden return to Wacken in 2010!

Dec 16th, 2009

This announcement is the perfect Christmas gift for Metalheads and Wacken fans alike:

The mighty Iron Maiden will play next year’s edition of the legendary festival in Northern Germany!

After their triumphant show in 2008, this will mark the second show of the british Metal legends at the Wacken:Open:Air. Their gig on Thursday, August 5th, 2010 will also be their only German show next year.

Comments Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris: “We had a fantastic time playing at Wacken last year so when we decided to play a few festivals in Europe next Summer it seemed a great idea to return. What could be better in Germany than to play again to the 75,000 true Metalheads who go to Wacken!“

A groundbreaking Metal band like Iron Maiden on the biggest Metal festival in the world – that’s match made in headbanging heaven. After the first time in 2008, even singer Bruce Dickinson said on his BBC radio show: “Wacken is enormous fun! It’s just great, you wander around and see all the sideshows and bits and bobs and everything else. So it’s just a fabulous weekend!”

Let’s look forward to an impressive Iron Maiden show as part of the “Night To Remember” at the 21st edition of the Wacken:Open:Air, celebrating the band and their immortal set of classics old and new.
