Iron Maiden to Play Gelredome in 2016

Heavy metal legends Iron Maiden recently released their first proper studio album in five years, The Book of Souls. The album, a true return to form, spans well over an hour and a half and features some of their best songs to date. Now, the band have announced a Dutch show in support of the album. Bruce Dickinson and co. will play Arnhem’s massive Gelredome stadium on 8 June.

Tickets for Maiden’s massive show will go on sale this week Friday through the MOJO website. Tickets will cost 65 euros, with The Raven Age (helmed by George Harris, son of Maiden’s Steve Harris) serving as support. On the subject of touring, frontman Bruce Dickinson had the following to say:

We cannot wait to get back out on tour. Maiden thrive on touring and getting to our fans. it’s also what we enjoy most. When we start in the USA in late February it will be 19 months since our last show so we are raring to go. It will be a great feeling to board our new Jumbo Ed Force One with the crew and the gear and head around the globe and get back on stage for you guys! Last time we played at the GelreDome was back in 2011 so it’ll be great to come back to Arnhem and see everyone again.”
