It’s so thrilling to see that fans still care about metal. Long live the legends and when it comes to British megastars, Iron Maiden, their popularity remains intact after all the decades, so much so that they have announced that they are going to extend their dates and locations to their 2017 upcoming tour. It seems that 16 dates wasn’t enough for fans who immediately booked tickets for their Book of Souls Tour.
Their hometown of London love their metal gods so much, that organizers say that tickets were immediately picked up and SOLD OUT only by Iron Maiden Fan Club members and those purchasing pre-sale tickets directly from the venue, even before the dates were announced publicly. The organizers, LiveNation’s President of UK Touring Andy Copping said: “The demand for Iron Maiden has been quite extraordinary. We knew the tour would be in high demand but to add a second show at the London O2 Arena at such an early stage demonstrates just how strong Iron Maiden are in the UK.” He continued: “We’re having to announce the second show now, prior to the official public on sale to ensure that other fans get access to the best tickets.”
“Response from the fans has been very positive to this, and myself, the band management and Ticketmaster have worked very closely to ensure that tickets get into the hands of genuine fans at the intended price.”
