Iron Maiden Coming to KC on 9-7-13
 
Quote:

IRON MAIDEN will make a brief return to the USA this September, playing seven specially selected shows en-route to Latin America where they will once again headline at the legendary Rock In Rio Festival, Brazil, on 22 September, their show there having recently sold out to 70,000 fans in just a couple of hours

These will begin with a first-ever visit to Raleigh, NC, for the opening show on September 3rd at the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion followed by taking Metal back to country music capital Nashville, TN where Maiden haven't played in over twenty years, at the Bridgestone Arena on September 5th. There will also be shows in Kansas City, MO, Sprint Center on September 7th, St Louis, MO, Verizon Wireless on September 8th and the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV on September 12th , all of which Maiden last visited way back in 2000 on the Brave New World Tour. Plus a return to Austin, TX for a show at the 360 Amphitheater on September 10th, the first time the band have played in that city since the original Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son Tour twenty-five years ago!

Very special guests on all these dates will be MEGADETH.

Before they finally head south towards Brazil, Maiden will also headline a very special event at the San Manuel Amphitheater, San Bernardino, CA. The Battle Of San Bernardino will take place on Friday 13th September. Anthrax, Testament, Overkill and Sabaton will join tour special guests Megadeth for this performance only, making for a big, loud and exciting day out for Metal fans in Southern California.

Tickets for the Las Vegas and San Bernardino shows go on sale 12 April. Tickets for Raleigh, Nashville, St Louis and Austin go onsale 13 April. Tickets for Kansas City go onsale 17 May. Check local details or www.ironmaiden.com for exact on sale times.

So, who is in on this? I have never seen these guys live, and with the limited times they play in the US, I'm thinking it may be worth ponying up the money to check it out....

Buddy said that the sweet, up close tix are going to be 125, and that's before the Ticketmaster ass play.

These guys would probably be worth the coin. How many more times will they decide to come through these parts, you know?

One of the best live songs ever is Fear of the Dark from Rock in Rio.

I saw them a few years ago in Dallas. It was damn good. Dream Theater opened for them, and I'm not a big fan, but they were pretty good too. I'd see Maiden if you are a fan and have the money. I loved watching Dave Murray and Adrian Smith ripping shit up live. Bruce is a great "host", as well as lead singer, of course. Pretty funny guy, and always has great energy. I've never seen him phone it in on any of the live performances I've seen.

This is an amazing coincidence. I also will be at the Sprint Center on September 7.

SuperChief 04-10-2013 11:08 PM

I'm definitely going. I'd be a fool to miss the opportunity.

Up the Irons!

I saw them when I was in high school Fear of the Dark tour at Sandstone.

I saw Iron Maiden in Chicago in 2008. They were incredible.

I didn't get into Maiden until I was in my 20s. Everything before that I consider wasted years.

Halfcan 04-12-2013 11:43 AM

I will be there.
