SABATON Supports IRON MAIDEN In Gothenburg; Video Available

Swedish metallers SABATON were the main support for IRON MAIDEN yesterday (Friday, July 1) at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg Sweden.

Commented SABATON: "The show [took place] in the biggest open-air arena in Sweden, thus making it the biggest show in SABATON history... so far."

Video footage of the SABATON concert can be seen below.

SABATON drummer Daniel Mullback was forced to sit out several dates on the band's recent European tour "due to problems with his knees." He was temporarily replaced by Robert Bck. Also performing with SABATON during the trek was DRAGONFORCE bassist Frdric Leclercq. He filled in for regular SABATON guitarist Rikard Sundn, who "has decided to multiply himself and will have his first kid at this time," according to a statement released by the band.

SABATON's fifth album, "Coat Of Arms", sold around 450 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 124 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

"Coat Of Arms" was released in Europe on May 21, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.
