IRON MAIDEN continue their MAIDEN ENGLAND WORLD TOUR into 2013 with a welcome return to the U.S.A., stopping off to play some select shows en-route to Latin America where they will once again headline at the legendary Rock In Rio Festival, Brazil, their show there having recently sold-out to 70,000 fans in just a couple of hours.
Following the hugely successful opening leg of the MAIDEN ENGLAND TOUR 2012, Maiden’s most extensive tour of North America for many years, the band wanted visit even more U.S. cities where their fans hadn’t had a chance to see them play for a very long time, so utilizing the journey to Brazil seemed an ideal opportunity to make this happen. Very special guests on all the dates will be Megadeth*.
Included in these seven selected U.S. shows is a very special event at San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, CA. THE BATTLE OF SAN BERNARDINO will take place on Friday 13th September.
Anthrax, Testament, Sabaton and Overkill will join Maiden and their special guests Megadeth for this performance only, making for a big, loud and exciting day out for Metal fans in Southern California.
Gates will open at 2 PM and Overkill will set things off at 3 PM with a very special performance for the fans in the venue concourse.
