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.
