IRON MAIDEN AND RAMMSTEIN ANNOUNCED AS HEADLINERS!
The rumor mill has been rife over the last few days waiting for the first headliners to be announced, with various top bands being thrown about!
Yesterday Live Nation announced that the mighty IRON MAIDEN coming back to Donington exactly 25 years after their first appearance at the then ‘Monsters of Rock Festival’ and joining them will be German metal heros RAMMSTEIN!
Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson said: “We were completely overwhelmed by the reaction from our North American fans to the MAIDEN ENGLAND Tour, which was our most extensive tour there for many years. Some of the cities we played we hadn’t visited in over twenty years so had no idea what to expect! But the opening night in Charlotte was packed to the rafters and the crowd was amazing. This continued throughout making the whole tour very special. We had a lot of fun playing the older songs there and the fans seemed to love the set list* and Eddie’s various incarnations! We all can’t wait to bring this show to our European fans.”
