Iron Maiden are set to rock Aberdeen all over again, announcing an Aberdeen gig today – just six months after they last visited.
The heavy metal legends will return to Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on August 4 next year having last played the venue in May this year.
At that gig – Iron Maiden’s first in Aberdeen in six years – lead singer Bruce Dickinson promised fans they wouldn’t have to wait as long for a return visit to the North-east.
Tickets are expected to be in demand when the go on sale on Friday, November 24.
Iron Maiden are hitting the road again on the back of their new album The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter, which was recorded during their just completed world tour.
Asked about his years of playing live, in a recent interview, Dickinson said: “I’m having a better time now than I can ever remember with Iron Maiden.
“This is just brilliant what we’re doing now. I love the music we’re making, I love the way we’re playing live, and I can’t ever see a time when I would want to stop making music with this band.”
The band’s drummer, Nicko McBrain said the Book Of Souls show was “the best stage show we’ve ever put together”.
Certainly, Aberdeen fans loved it when it arrived at the AECC … and will no doubt be looking forward to the next one.
