Iron Maiden World Tour The Final Frontier UK Dates & Support Acts Announced

Iron Maiden will be returning to the UK in triumph from their world tour THE FINAL FRONTIER WORLD TOUR “Around The World In 66 Days”, a 50 thousand mile odyssey aboard Ed Force One, their specially customized Boeing 757, piloted by lead singer and airline captain Bruce Dickinson.

Speaking on the addition of their support acts, Iron Maiden’s manager Rod Smallwood had the following to say

“As our fans know, Maiden like to give them value for money, and we think the addition to different parts of our UK tour of these three tremendous up and coming bands - Airbourne, Dragonforce and Trivium – certainly does that. they will add to what we fully intend to make a series of memorable nights for the fans when we are “coming home” later in the year for the final climactic round of The Final Frontier World Tour .”



On supporting Iron Maiden for the first time, Airbourne had the following to say:

“Iron Maiden, Iron Maiden's hard working crew and Iron Maiden's hard rocking crowd are all people who stand up for Rock'n'Roll the world over and we love and respect them all. We can't wait to open fire upon that hallowed stage. Long live Metal, Long live Maiden and long live Eddie!”



Trivium are currently in the studio with producer Colin Richardson working on their fifth studio album (name TBC).
Vocalist, Matt Heafy commented:

“We couldn’t be more honoured and excited to share a stage with the legendary Iron Maiden. This will be Trivium’s first UK show in a long time & we’ll have a new record under our belts to debut. Lights Out London for an immense night of metal. Up The Irons.”



Dragonforce’s Herman Li adds:

“We are so excited to be playing with the greatest heavy metal band of all time again! We had some of the best times of our careers touring with Maiden back in 2005. Iron Maiden have inspired us tremendously throughout the years and we can't wait to get back on stage to support them in Belfast on August 3rd and for their hometown show on August 5th. Here we go, Up the Irons!”
