IRON MAIDEN To Play Dublin With HEAVEN & HELL

British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN will open the European leg of their "Final Frontier World Tour" on Friday, July 30 at the O2 in Dublin, ireland, with very special guests HEAVEN & HELL.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 16 at 9:00 a.m, with a special pre-sale for members of the IRON MAIDEN fan club starting on Tuesday, April 13 at 9:00 a.m.

The tour takes its name from IRON MAIDEN's forthcoming studio album, "The Final Frontier", which is expected be released in the late summer of this year.

Following shows in USA and Canada, the "Final Frontier World Tour" will travel to Europe for a few selected major festival and stadium shows, with the band planning to continue to many other countries in 2011.

"The Final Frontier" was recorded at Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas with Kevin Shirley at the helm.

Shirley previously worked on the last three MAIDEN albums — 2000's "Brave New World", 2003's "Dance of Death" and 2006's "A Matter of Life and Death".

The next IRON MAIDEN album will be the band's fifteenth studio record, and they face a challenge to follow up "A Matter of Life and Death", which was received well critically and saw the group play the whole album on tour.

IRON MAIDEN will kick off a North American tour with very special guests DREAM THEATER in Dallas, Texas, on June 9 and finish in Washington D.C. on July 20, making it MAIDEN's most extensive North American tour in many years.

Following these shows in USA and Canada, "The Final Frontier World Tour" will travel back to Europe for a few selected major festival and stadium shows with the band planning to continue to many other countries in 2011.

IRON MAIDEN will guest on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" with host Bob Coburn on Monday, June 7 at 8:30 p.m. PT / 11:30 p.m. ET. Fans are encouraged to speak with IRON MAIDEN by calling 1-800-344-ROCK (7625).
