IRON MAIDEN Announce New Scandinavian Tour Dates And New Studio Album

February 22, 2006

To herald the start off their 2006-2007 world tour, IRON MAIDEN have announced their Scandinavian Tour dates for November. In an attempt to satisfy the insatiable demand, this will include multiple dates in Stockholm and Helsinki following the massive success of last summer's concerts in Scandinavia where all 95,000 tickets sold out almost immediately and where they made history in Gothenburg by selling out all 55,000 tickets for Ullevi Stadium in just two and half hours! The concert was also transmitted all across Scandinavia on terrestrial television. This will be MAIDEN's 10th appearance at Gothenburg's Scandinavium — yet another record breaker which no other band, international or domestic, has surpassed in the venues history.

The dates are as follows:

Nov. 09 - Aalborg, DEN @ Gigantium
Nov. 10 - Copenhagen, DEN @ Valby
Nov. 12 - Tampere, FIN @ Icehall
Nov. 14 - Helsinki, FIN @ Hartwall arena
Nov. 15 - Helsinki, FIN @ Hartwall arena
Nov. 17 - Stockholm, SWE @ Globen
Nov. 18 - Stockholm, SWE @ Globen
Nov. 20 - Gothenburg, SWE @ Scandinavium
Nov. 21 - Oslo, NOR @ Valhalla
Nov. 23 - Bergen, NOR @ Vestlandshallen

Tickets for the Oslo and Bergen shows will go sale on Saturday, February 25 at 10:00 a.m. Tickets for Sweden and Finland will go on sale for at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, February 27 while the Danish dates will go on sale at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, February 27.

The IRON MAIDEN Fan Club have made special arrangements with EMA Telstar and their Associates to allow 120 of their fan-club members to gain special entry to each concert, which will allow them to get right at the front of the stage! Full details of this exciting offer will be available here on in March.

Due to production considerations there will be no support act on the first two tour dates in Denmark but on all the other dates MAIDEN have confirmed up-and-coming U.S. band TRIVIUM as their special guests.

IRON MAIDEN are currently writing material for their new, as yet untitled fourteenth studio album which will be released later in the year prior to the tour. The live show will of course include new album material, and will be in full MAIDEN tradition — spectacular stage production, sound and lights ... and, of course, Eddie!!

Says Steve Harris, "We had a fantastic time and a lot of fun last year playing songs from our early albums. However, MAIDEN is all about pushing ourselves creatively and keeping fresh, so we're all charged up to make a great studio album together with Kevin Shirley and take it out on the road at the end of the year."

These Scandinavian dates herald the start of MAIDEN's new album world tour which will take them around parts of Europe through to Christmas — playing selected dates in other parts of the world in the New Year.
