FANS of metal messiahs Iron Maiden are set to gather for global ‘Maiden Day’.
The music lovers will descend on cinemas across the world for a one-off opportunity to see the band’s new feature length documentary, Iron Maiden: Flight 666.
It will be aired in more than 400 cinemas in 34 countries on Tuesday April 21 only.
And Huddersfield’s lucky Maiden fans won’t be disappointed as the town’s Odeon cinema is one of the few British venues chosen.
The film charts Iron Maiden’s momentous ‘Somewhere Back in Time’ world tour last year.
Lead singer, Bruce Dickinson, known not only for his vocal talents but for his flying skills for the epic tour Dickinson piloted a specially customised Boeing 757 for the entire crew and 12 tons of equipment as they travelled round the world in just 45 days.
In total the band covered 50,000 miles on the plane, christened ‘Ed Force One’ playing to almost half-a-million loyal fans at 23 gigs in 13 countries.
Iron Maiden’s Huddersfield-born manager, Rod Smallwood said: “This film is a testament to an extraordinary tour and to our incredible fans all over the world.
“It is a must see for all Maiden fans, rock-music lovers and anyone interested at what it is really like to tour at this level.” www.ironmaiden.com/flight666
