Steve Harris says "We've mentioned before in previous announcements how exciting it is to be playing new places and although we have visited Bucharest only once before, way back in October 1995, this will be the first time our fans there will get to see Bruce performing the classic songs. So this will basically like playing here for the first time for us and I'm sure the fans will be as fired for it as we are!"

Iron Maiden are to perform at the Super Bock Super Rock Festival in Lisbon on Wednesday 9th July at the Parque do Tejo as part of their Somewhere Back In Time World Tour 2008.
Steve Harris says "I'm personally really looking forward to be playing this festival as I have a lot of close ties with Portugal because I spend a lot of time at my second home in Faro where I also have my 'Eddie's Bar' as well. So I will have a lot of friends and regulars coming down to this show. The Portuguese fans have always been very ardent and loyal followers of the band so it should be a great festival."

We've got some great plans for 2008 and beyond, and I can't wait to get back on the road next year on a tour which appropriately celebrates the band's formative years. "
Tony Wadsworth, Chairman & CEO, EMI Music UK said, "Since the early eighties Maiden has been a flagship band for EMI and we have enjoyed a fantastic long term relationship.

Steve Harris says, "This is a great venue to play. We played there back in 2005 and I remember it being unbearablyВ hot but the fans were just wild and gave us a fantastic reception. I have to say that fans in Greece are as loud and responsive as any anywhere in the world. Thats the major reason why we have always tried hard to have Greece in out tour itinery although it can be tough geographically!! We also enjoy Athens culturally and we have all made more than one visit to the Acropolis and other beautiful relics.And the food is terrific!!"

Iron Maiden are to perform at the Slavia Football Stadium in Prague on Friday 8th August as part of their Somewhere Back In Time World Tour 2008.
Steve Harris says "We've got a lot of friends in Prague as we visit there as often as we can although this time it's going to be a little different as we're in a much bigger venue than usual at the football stadium so the atmosphere will be all that more special I think.
I remember the last time we were there at the T Mobile Arena and it was the opening show of the Eddie Rips Up Europe tour in 2005 and the reception from the fans was just incredible. Nearly lifted the roof off the place! It's always electric thanks to the energy of the fans and we're really looking forward to playing there again."

Arrrrrghh Finally!! More than year of hard work and the site is open. I sure hope you will enjoy it.
First I want to say one big THANK YOU GUYS!! To all the boys and girls who helped me for translating and finding most of the materials, pictures and stuff witch are included in the site. I wouldnвЂ™t do it. Without them (well I might, but maybe in 2070:P ). So thank you! I wonвЂ™t forget it. LetвЂ™s start with little explanation: This is an unofficial site with no connection to Iron Maiden. Most of the materials and information are taken from the Iron Maiden Official site, The Iron Maiden Commentary and other sites like Encyclopaedia Metallium Wikipedia and other Iron Maiden Fan-sites. Off course there is a lot to say and read for that GREAT, LEGENDARY AND IMMORTAL BAND so there are tons of materials, interviews and stuff that I hope you will find soon here As you see a lot of the sections of the site are still under construction But we are working hard to upload all the material as soon as possible. So Expect a lot of new material with the new updates. We are planning to make 1-2 updates every week.
This is Bulgarian Website, therefore the materials have to be translated and to be uploaded together with the English ones. If you think that you can help I will be very grateful and those who help will be included in the VIP group in the forum. And this will be the way to build strong BULGARIAN IRON MAIDEN COMMUNITY.
IRON MAIDEN announce their most ambitious and extraordinary touring plans ever -- and are very pleased to announce that this will include Australia for the first time in 15 years!
