After selling out the tickets for the first two dates in less than 24 hours, IRON MAIDEN have added a third and final benefit show at London's Brixton Academy in support of ex-drummer Clive Burr, who is suffering from multiple sclerosis — a disease of unknown cause. IRON MAIDEN will be performing three special benefit gigs at London's Brixton Academy on Tuesday, March 19th, Wednesday, March 20th and Thursday, March 21st to help Burr. These will be the only shows that the band will play anywhere in the world in 2002. All profits from the two shows will go to the Clive Burr MS Trust Fund, and most of those involved in the shows, including all band members, their management, agency and promoters, are supplying their services for nothing to maximize the fund. All merchandising profits will also be donated to the fund. Tickets for the March 19th show will go on sale on Wednesday, January 30th at 9:00 AM.
