Matt checks in from Cardiff on the UK leg on their European Iron Maiden Tour.

Posted on February 12, 2008

Trivium are currently getting amongst the UK on their final leg of their Iron Maiden European tour. Singer Matt Heafy has taken a few minutes out of his hectic schedule to let us know how things are going. “Greetings and Happy Holidays! Matt here in Cardiff, good to (sorta-be-back) home in the U.K., Dublin and Scotland Fuck Yeaaauuuhhh. The Iron Maiden support tour has been a fantastic experience and great opportunity completely beyond all our expectations, a totally sold out arena tour 12-17 thousand people strong a night at the Maiden shows, with crowds who have been so totally fucking cool to us so we’ve been damn happy about that and thankful. And hell, who could complain about being able to watch one of the greatest live bands of all time every night? Like I said before Maiden are the masters of Power and Melody – incredible. So anywho, there have been plenty of highlights on this tour: (of course every single night has been incredible) standouts include Helsinki, Sweden, Norway, Holland, France, Spain, Italy, Germany and last night’s show in Cologne a off date Trivium headliner show (fucking sickest pits and head bangers of the tour!!) but like I said, ALL the shows have rocked, those just had some – extra madness. We wrap with Iron Maiden on December 23rd then we head right back to the states for a couple of weeks of vacation before we head to the Land of The Rising Sun and the Land Down Under. Our Japan headline shows have already sold out and we also have a string of headline shows we will be playing in Australia and New Zealand in between Big Day Out shows and from what we hear these shows are also selling out nicely so we know heading to Japan, Australia and New Zealand will be a great way to kick off 2007. We have some other touring news that we will get out soon, we have a support tour in the US coming up and then we will head back over seas for our own European and UK headline tour. More to come on all that later. So on behalf of Travis, Corey, Paolo and our management we want to extended to all our family, friends, fans, web site members, moderators, admins and supporters our best wishes for a happy and safe holiday season and we hope you get or find whatever it is you are looking for. 2006 was a great year for Trivium thanks to all of you and as we continue to grow and develop we look forward to even bigger and better things to come in 2007 and beyond. Have a safe and happy holiday season and have a Happy New Year. MKH”
