Sure will. And to be more specific it's 60 winners with one guest each so it's 120 people total.

Great review, glad you had a great time, Maiden have recently announced just one date for the UK, which I'm really not happy about since the tour is called ''Maiden ENGLAND'', so why not do a decent length UK tour? Huge shame I'm going to miss out on this show since there was no way I could get to Download festival as well as the London show coming up, really annoys me that they only tour the UK when it comes to a new album.

Honestly, I've heard a lot of the lack of UK touring comes down to taxes. I've heard that was the reason there were no reunion shows there in 1999 for example. Don't know if it's definitely true, but yeah.



I was at the Lakewood show, it was awesome. One of the best selling shows of last year, like top 3 or 4 I think, so maybe they will return to Atlanta sooner than another 20 years.

I sure hope so, but if that is the case I guess I'll just have to wait, because I need to see a Maiden show before I die, I just got to.

Doesn't it also have to do with the fact that the British press and Maiden hate each other (and the British music press have way more of a sway on the public than most)?

Kerrang and Metal Hammer suck Maiden's dick every couple of issues regardless, that wouldn't be an issue.

It's wanting to play big venues. Maiden want to play arenas in the UK, and much like Dublin and Belfast, the best way to guarantee that the big arena shows are worthwhile is to do one in a centralized area and get everyone to travel. They did Dublin one year, then Belfast the next, maximized the attendance at both. For this, they did one festival date, then one/maybe two London dates to maximize attendance. They might do a sweep next year of maybe 6-8 cities in the UK, but they will be hot spots.

Maximize the numbers, play bigger venues, get bigger productions, play less dates and still make as much money, if not more. Metallica, Slipknot, Rammstein - same story with all the big metal bands.

I can't really see that being the reason to be quite honest, because when Maiden release an album, they always give the UK a well sized tour, but never when it comes to tours like Greatest Hits etc. It really annoys me, because I really love the set for this tour, and the fact that the actual tour is called Maiden England makes me even more angry
