Attention heavy metal fans: Iron Maiden are playing just one date in Spain on their current tour, and it's July 29 at Barcelona's Olympic Stadium. The English outfit are on the European leg of their Legacy of the Beast greatest hits world tour that started in 2018. The biggest Iron Maiden concert in Barcelona to date will give you all their biggies – those tunes you've seemingly known forever and that have given birth to modern heavy metal. Get ready for a show full of pyrotechnics and theatrics: giant zombies, fencing combat, air raids and explosions, images from classic Iron Maiden songs onstage and more.
The concert is set to be a festival metal that spans generations. It's promoted by Madness Live and Primavera Sound, and it's not the first time the famous festival has banked on heavy metal, but it is the first time they've put on a heavy metal stadium concert. Opening acts won't disappoint either: in Australian band Airbourne you'll hear influences by the likes of Aerosmith and fellow Aussies AC/DC; and out of New Zealand it's Within Temptation with their symphonic and melodic sounds.
