Iron Maiden are set to play their largest ever show in Northern Ireland, as part of Belfast's Belsonic Festival. One of only 2 U.K. dates for the band in 2020 along with a headline appearance at Download Festival, the news comes almost 29 years to the day since the occasion of their first Belfast show, on 24th September 1990.
Iron Maiden will return to headline Belfast’s Belsonic in Ormeau Park on Monday June 15th for what will be one of only two homecoming UK festival shows in 2020. They've spent the summer on their historic and critically acclaimed Legacy Of The Beast North American tour, based on their award winning mobile game of the same name, which has been deemed by fans and national and rock media alike as 'Maiden's most monumental show and best set list ever'.
With over 90 million album sales, more than 2000 live performances in 63 countries, tens of millions of fans and 16 studio albums of unerring quality and power to their name, Iron Maiden have more than earned their proudly-held status as one of the most influential and revered bands of all time. The band continue to traverse the globe, continually pushing boundaries, visiting new places and returning to cities not played in decades. Sure to be history in the making it’s more than mere proof that the fearsome tenacity that first propelled Iron Maiden into the stratosphere all those years ago is still there. It’s cast-iron confirmation of the heroic, indefatigable qualities that have given Iron Maiden such enduring, universal appeal.
Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson says, "Next year we will play a number of countries and cities we have yet to visit on this incredible tour. It’s great to be returning to Belfast, this time for a Festival date, and we will certainly go to town and add a few extra items to the show.”
Tickets go on sale Friday September 27th at 9am from Ticketmaster outlets and www.ticketmaster.ie
