All 90,000 tickets to the IRON MAIDEN-headlined ”metal night” of this year's Rock In Rio festival sold out within two hours after they went on sale in April.
IRON MAIDEN was one of the first attractions ever announced for Rock In Rio, playing on the opening night of the legendary 1985 edition. Other unforgettable performances followed when they headlined the City of Rock in the 2001 and 2013 editions. That last one also sold out 90,000 tickets within hours. In October 2019, the Brits played at the festival for the fourth time topping the bill with their latest ”Legacy Of The Beast” tour, which is being hailed by fans and media alike as the most extravagant and visually stunningly live show of the band's career to date with a setlist of decades-spanning hits and fan favorites, including some songs not played live for many years.
The concept for the ”Legacy Of The Beast” tour was inspired by MAIDEN's mobile game and comic book of the same name. The stage set design features a number of different but interlocking ”worlds” with a setlist covering a large selection of 1980s material with a handful of surprises from later albums to add diversity.
MAIDEN's current set includes a Spitfire buzzing the stage during the opening number, ”Aces High”. The plane is a 90-percent-sized replica of an actual Supermarine Spitfire Mk Vb registration number AA 853 from 302 Squadron that saw active duty in 1941.
MAIDEN's 2019 North, South and Central America trek comprises 44 shows in six countries, which, combined with the band's 2018 European dates, means that by the end of this tour, the group will have taken the ”Legacy Of The Beast” show to over one and three quarter of a million fans around the globe.
The first leg of the ”Legacy Of The Beast” tour opened in Europe last year to outstanding critical acclaim, not just by the 750,000-plus fans who came to see the show but right across national press and rock media, including The Times (U.K.) newspaper calling it ”an extraordinary show filled with world class theatrics… a masterclass in performance and staging.”
