Iron Maiden is going back to Donington and theyâ€™re bringing their Maiden England show with them. You can see the setlist below.
â€œWeâ€™re absolutely over the moon to be headlining Donington again,â€ says Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson. â€œThe idea of returning exactly 25 years later with a show inspired by that same 1988 Seventh Son Tour, was too good an opportunity to be missed! And, thanks to modern technology, weâ€™ve been able to update and improve on the original production.â€
â€œWe will be bringing a huge new lightshow, stage set, various incarnations of Eddie, plenty of pyro and all kinds of other exciting stuff for the fans. And of course treating the fans to lots of their favourite songs from that period! Weâ€™ve had many great times at Donington and there is always a wonderful mix of bands and a really wild crowd who love their metal, all of which makes for a memorable show and fantastic party atmosphere!â€
â€œI am delighted to see the return of Iron Maiden to Download next year to mark the 25th anniversary of their first playing at Donington,â€ adds Live Nationâ€™s Andy Copping. â€œThey are without doubt one of the biggest bands in the world and their live shows are legendary. I caught them in Los Angeles and the audience reaction to the stunning stage production and incredible set-list was just phenomenal to witness. After watching rare performances of songs like Afraid To Shoot Strangers, The Prisoner and Seventh Son, alongside classics like The Number Of The Beast, Aces High, The Trooper and Fear of the Dark, I canâ€™t wait to see this show again at Download 2013. It is sure to be something really special.â€
Download 2013 takes place at Donington Park from June 14-16 2013.
