Actually, the opening band is usually contractually prohibited from playing a headlining show within so many miles of any city on the tour. Since Iron Maiden is playing in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City, I'm not sure where DT could have played a headlining show in Canada even if they wanted to. Buffalo was probably the closest and/or largest major city that was far enough away from any of the tour stops AND fit well within the tour routing.
