MaidenFans.com is reporting that IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson revealed on his BBC 6 Music radio show Saturday night (March 19) that MAIDEN will be playing a one-hour set during this year's Ozzfest.Although this is not very surprising considering the number of bands slated to appear on the Ozzfest main stage (including festival closers BLACK SABBATH), it still comes as a disappointment to many U.S. fans.

In other news, VisitReykjavik.is is reporting that tickets for MAIDEN's June 7 show at Egilsholl in Reykjavík, Iceland went on sale on March 6 and 5,000 out of 5,500 tickets for section A were sold within three hours. The concert organizers are reportedly considering adding tickets to section B, which went on sale March 7. However, it is clear that it is impossible to add tickets for Section A because of the band's stage show, which apparently includes pyrotechnics. (Thanks: hot_turkey_ed / www.metalsetlists.com)
