Iron Maiden are set to play the final show of The Book Of Souls World Tour on the 4th of August at Wacken Open Air Festival and are going to be live-streaming the whole show.

ARTE Concert will feature the entire iconic performance via Livestream, promising lavish camera attention and access from anywhere in the world.

Iron Maiden Manager Rod Smallwood says: “We decided to finish the tour at Wacken as it is the ideal way to end this magical tour playing to 80,000 core metal fans at this legendary Metal festival. Everywhere we’ve played the fans have been amazing and the reaction to the new songs and stage show has been phenomenal. The band has loved every minute on stage.

“So when Wacken and ARTE asked us to consider a live stream of our performance there we jumped at the chance to give our fans an end of tour gift. Streaming this final show live globally allows us to thank the many fans we played to so far, and, for those who couldn’t get to see us this time round, a chance to see just how spectacular the live concert is and what they missed!”

Say Holger Hübner and Thomas Jensen of ICS and Wacken in a joint statement: “We are incredibly happy to be able to give all these Iron Maiden and Wacken Open Air fans, worldwide, this highlight at the close of the spectacular ‘Book of Souls’ Tour.

“Heavy Metal fans are the best fans in the world, and Iron Maiden fans are unparalleled. It is so brilliant that everybody who could not get a ticket for the W:O:A will be able to enjoy this ‘Night To Remember’.”

Iron Maiden’s The Book of Souls World Tour has been on the road since late February, playing to over 1.5 million fans with 72 shows in 36 counties and six continents.

Iron Maiden at Wacken Open Air with The Book Of Souls World Tour is on Thursday, 4th August, from 9.30 pm CET. You can watch exclusive and worldwide on Livestream at and

Alestorm tease new album and reveal 19 date UK tour

Alestorm Golden Age Cover 2014Scots metal pirates Alestorm are to release their new album, Sunset On The Golden Age, on the 4th of August via Napalm Records.

The band have also announced a 19 date tour in support of the release, covering much of the UK throughout October.

In a statement on their official website, Alestorm said: “It’s been over 2 years since we toured the UK & Ireland, so we wanted to make this one be a wee bit special. We’re calling this tour PIRATEFEST, and we’re going to be bringing some of our very favourite piratical metal bands from all over the world to party with us for 19 shows!”

Of the new album, they said: “The title of the album is a reference to ‘The Golden Age of Piracy’… during which time all the famous pirates you’ve probably heard of were doing their thing in the Caribbean. Stealing treasure, kicking the ass of the British Navy, plundering wenches, and so forth. Like all good things, this age had to come to an end, and so we’ve used that as a general theme for this album.”

“There’s also songs about drinking and partying too,” they continue.
