IRON MAIDEN have confirmed that they will close the show at the incredible 2013 Rock in Rio, Brazil, headlining the final night on 22 Sept - and they expect to go out with a bang!
They first appeared at the inaugural Rock In Rio, supporting Queen in 1985, during their World Slavery tour and made an historic return in 2001 headlining to over 200,000 fans shortly after Bruce and Adrian rejoined the band on the Brave New World tour. As Maiden fans know, this passionate performance from both band and crowd alike was captured on the Rock In Rio concert video cementing a lifelong relationship between Maiden and their Brazilian and Latin American fans which continues and grows to this day. Since then Maiden have been regular visitors to Brazil playing extensive tours in major arenas and stadiums from Belem to Porto Allegre, Recife to Manaus, and many cities between with four sold-out Stadium shows in Sao Paulo alone.
