  • Iron maiden announces new album and N. Amer. Tour.


    IRON MAIDEN are pleased to announce that their forthcoming new studio album will be called 'THE FINAL FRONTIER', and is expected be released late summer of this year.

    The announcement comes with news of a North American Tour with Very Special Guests Dream Theater to open in Dallas, Texas, on 9th June and finish in Washington D.C. on 20th July, making it Maiden's most extensive North American tour in many years.

    Following these shows in USA and Canada The Final Frontier World Tour will travel back to Europe for a few selected major festival and stadium shows with the band planning to continue to many other countries in 2011 (full currently confirmed dates below).

    The full Live Nation North America press release for the North American Tour is posted here.

    An exclusive pre-sale allowing members of the IRON MAIDEN fan club first access to tickets to the North American Maiden Shows will be made available two days prior to them being available to the public.

    Tickets for the Canadian shows will go on sale to the public on Saturday 13th March at 10am PST (10am EST for Toronto and 12 noon EST Montreal).
    Exclusive first access to the tickets will be available to IM fan club members on Wednesday 10th March at 10am PST through to Thursday 11th March at 6pm PST (EST for Toronto).
    Regretfully due to technical reasons an exclusive Pre-Sale in Montreal is not possible.

    Tickets for the US Shows will go on sale to the public on Saturday 20th March at 10am EST.
    Exclusive first access to the tickets will be available to IM fan club members on Wednesday 17th March at 10am EST through to Thursday 18th March at 6pm EST

    As IRON MAIDEN are actively dedicated to ensuring their fans always have access to the best possible tickets at the fairest possible price, without being subject to scalping for good seats, so many North American shows will operate, at least in part, a paperless ticket policy: More information on Ticketmaster Paperless Ticketing can be found here

    To give IRON MAIDEN fan club members a privileged insight to their touring world, IMTV will return to to cover THE FINAL FRONTIER WORLD TOUR. This exclusive footage includes regular video from the live shows, touring, band interviews, insights into our crew and what they do and much much more. The website will also feature exclusive tour diaries, exclusive photographs and anything else that helps the fans get a real insight into the dynamics of a big tour.

      That's the best Eddie art in 20 years. Looks like Ego The Living Planet. Hopefully the album will follow suit...

                  Comfort Dental Ampitheater formerly Fiddler's Green is possibly the worst venue I've ever been too.

                  Oh well. I'm going out of town that week anyway.

                      I'm going to have to man up and drive 700 miles to see this. I really, really, really want to see this show.

                            Can't believe I missed this....I knew they were working on an album. It appears to follow Dance of Death in terms of release time (late summer/early fall).

                            Eddie looks like he was consumed by The Flood from Halo. Kinda like.

                            Considering the album title and theme, here's hoping for some "Somewhere in Time" influences. m/ m/
