CostaRicappages.com reports that British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN arrived in Costa Rica yesterday in their private plane Ed Force One to prepare for their second concert on Costa Rican soil. The concert is set to take place tomorrow, March 3, in the Alejandro Morera Soto Stadium in Alajuela. While the band was met with less fans at the airport than for their February 2008 concert, there is no doubt that the IRON MAIDEN fever is still alive and well in Costa Rica and Central America. The concert venue has become a meeting spot for many of these fans who began to line up over a week ago in anticipation of the event.If that isn't enough proof of the dedication that Central American fans show to the English band, the concert-goers were met with a handful of unexpected encounters with non-supporters who consider IRON MAIDEN's music to be satanic or anti-religious. On Friday, February 27, the National Prayer Movement organized a parade of cars and buses full of people that passed by the stadium, a route that they claim to be a coincidence. Other incidences have taken place with passersby insulting the fans and even throwing water on them as they wait. Read the entire report from CostaRicappages.com.
