Iron Maiden Adds Second Night In Brooklyn @ Barclays Center On Saturday, July 22

Back in January I discussed the return of Iron Maiden to our shores for more “Book Of Souls” tour dates. If you missed that report just click HERE to have all the necessary scoop. Now in connection to that, the legendary band has upped the game for the Metal Legions of the amazing borough of Brooklyn. Read on.

The Press Release:
Due to overwhelming demand, IRON MAIDEN have added a second night at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Saturday, July 22nd. Tickets go on sale Saturday, February 25th, at 10:00 AM EST via www.TicketMaster.com.

The extra date in Brooklyn on July 22nd will be the final chance for Maiden fans to witness The Book Of Souls Tour as it’s two-year, round-the-world odyssey, which began in February 2016 in Florida, comes to a close. By which time, the band will have played 117 shows to well over 2 million fans in 36 countries across six of the seven continents, travelling well over 100,000 miles.

Tickets for the North American 26-date, June/July second leg of The Books Of Souls Tour went on sale a little over two weeks ago on Friday, January 27th, and were speedily snapped up by Maiden fans with well over 200,000 tickets being sold across the opening weekend alone. The Brooklyn show, the band’s first-ever visit here, sold out rapidly with the neighboring Philadelphia and Newark shows already close to selling out as well. There’s been particular fan frenzy in places the band has not played for many years such as Minneapolis which is already sold out with Oakland and Tampa the next to go.

The Press Release:
IRON MAIDEN’s hugely successful The Book Of Souls World Tour will return to North America for an extensive series of arena and amphitheater shows in summer 2017. The mammoth tour opened in Florida last February playing fourteen sold-out shows in the U.S.A and Canada along with a further 58 concerts in 34 other countries around the globe. First night reviews from Ft Lauderdale called it “…a full-throttle, devil-may-care performance that thrilled a sold-out BB&T Center” (Sun Sentinel) with Revolver magazine reporting how the band’s legendary mascot Eddie dominated the Maya-themed stage: “From a walking zombie towering over band members during the set, to being featured on a host of back-drops and huge blow-up figures – the quintessential symbol was omnipresent for the entire show” including Eddie having his heart literally ripped out of his chest and hurled into the crowd by singer Bruce Dickinson!
