“We cannot wait to get back out on tour. When we start in the USA in late February it will be 19 months since our last show at Sonisphere in the UK so we are raring to go. Maiden thrive on touring and getting out to our fans, it’s what we do best, so it will be a great feeling to board our new Jumbo Ed Force One with the crew and the gear and head round the globe and get back on stage for you guys. I’m especially delighted to be coming to South Africa, as although the band has played here before, it’ll be the first time that Adrian Smith and myself will be touring here as part of Iron Maiden, so we’re really looking forward to seeing all our fans!” – Bruce Dickinson 

Be sure to grab your tickets as soon as they launch, because there is no doubt both shows will sell out!

    Sir Dickenson… I desperately need your help… And yes, I am seriously BEGGING!…. You will not find a bigger more loyal Iron Maiden supporter than my brother, his wife and his 12 year old son!! He has bought absolutely everything on offer from Iron Maiden… Cups, t-shirts, toys… Everything!…. His birthday is in February and it would be the most incredible gift…. If, you would help to make it possible to grant them 3 tickets and 3 backstage passes of the people whose music he has worshipped for over 20 years…. For the concert in May in South- Africa!!!!! Please, this will be his 40th birthday…. ‘he simply does not have that amount of money for petrol, tickets and back…. I can sponsor the money to get there and back…. But not the rest’…. Please help me?
