Iron Maiden to finish European tour with London show

Iron Maiden England 88

We came, we saw, we banged our heads.  From an initial rain soaked arrival at Donington Park the weekend ended up a fairly sunny and fun 3 days of beer and music, but more importantly an AMAZING set from Iron Maiden. From the initial Spitfire flyover and Moonchild to an encore of Aces High, The Evil That Men Do, and Running Free it was an amazing 2 hours of music showing they STILL have it in spades, Phantom of the Opera was phenomenal.

A surprise announcement was made during their set that they would be returning to England at the end of their current Maiden '88 European tour to play the O2 Arena on Saturday 3rd August 2013.  Better still is they are insuring the REAL fans will be able to get tickets...
