IRON MAIDEN To Conclude Massive Tour in Fort Lauderdale
Posted by Michael Mueller on February 9, 2009 at 9:48 AM
Rock legends Iron Maiden have confirmed that the final show ever of their massive Somewhere Back in Time World Tour 2008-2009 will be in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on the April 2nd at the BankAtlantic Center. This, the band's first show in Florida in 13 years, will definitely be the last show of one of the most ambitious rock tours ever undertaken, and promises to be a big party night for both the band and audience.
Says drummer and local Florida resident Nicko McBrain, "We'll be arriving right in the middle of Spring Break, so this really promises to be a huge party for everyone. And I'm sure there will be more than a few sore heads in Fort Lauderdale the following day! The whole tour has been an amazing experience and this final leg back on Ed Force One promises to be crazier than ever!"
The Somewhere Back in Time Tour revisits the band's history by focusing almost entirely on the 80's—in both choice of songs played, and the stage set, which is based around the legendary Egyptian Production of the 1984-85 Powerslave Tour and featured on the recent DVD Live after Death. This is arguably the most elaborate and spectacular show the band has ever presented, and will include some key elements of their Somewhere In Time tour of 1986-1987, such as the Cyborg Eddie character.
Fans around the world will be able to see what it was like flying on Ed Force One in the recently announced movie FLIGHT 666, which will play in selected cinemas around the world on Tuesday, April 21. Fan club members will able to access an exclusive first pre-sale on Thursday, February 12, from 10:00am to midnight.
