TRIVIUM TO SUPPORT IRON MAIDEN IN EUROPEAN TOUR, UK DATES INCLUDED!! Words directly from http://www.ironmaiden.com “IRON MAIDEN have confirmed the full European Leg of their World Tour for this coming Winter 2006. The World Tour will start in Scandinavia on Nov 9 and response to the shows on sale there last week was phenomenal with ticket sales already exceeding 95,000 across the Scandinavian dates. All three of the Swedish shows sold out in just over an hour and a third date was immediately added at the Stockholm Globen which also sold out in hours making it 48,000 sold out in Sweden alone. The 8000 tickets in Bergen Norway went in just 30 minutes, Tempere sold all 6,600 tickets out in a couple of hours while Helsinki registered first day sales of over 17,000 tickets over their two shows. The new live show will include new album material which the band are now recording and which will be released prior to the tour. They are currently considering album artwork and the Production for the tour, which of course will be in true Maiden tradition with spectacular stage production and massive sound and lights … and, of course, Eddie!! Says Steve Harris, ‘We’ve finished most of the writing of the album and have just started recording with Kevin Shirley so we’re all very charged up at the moment to make a great record. Reaction to the tour so far has been brilliant and we’re looking forward to putting a great show together for the fans and getting back out on the road towards the end of the year and playing new material live ‘ Maiden have invited the critically acclaimed American band TRIVIUM to be their Special Guests throughout the tour. Trivium have enjoyed ever increasing recognition these last few months and Maiden are sure that their fans will give them a great reception. This European leg of the World Tour will be followed in early 2007 with selected dates in other parts of the World.
