iron_maiden_214127314Iron Maiden is right in the middle of their The Book of Souls World Tour, and for everyone that happens to be in Sweden this June, they will be performing live in Gothenburg at the Ullevi Stadium Friday June the 17th.Tickets are still available and can be bought, among other places, at, where it’s also possible to book a hotel package along with the actual ticket.In the South American part of the world tour we had the pleasure to see Anthrax playing with them along with The Raven Age who has been following along to almost every performance so far. The Raven Age will however not be a part of many shows throughout Europe, but they will most certainly be present at Ullevi. And there will also be a special guest with only a single performance in the entire tour, namely the Swedish band Opeth, a progessive Death Metal band.Iron Maiden front man, Bruce Dickinson has said how they’re looking forward to returning to Sweden in a press release:

The last time we played at Ullevi was in 2011 so we are all excited about coming back to Gothenburg. The whole Maiden vibe whenever we play here is always fantastic, we get such a warm welcome from our Swedish fans!

And that’s no real surprise for those who know how big metal actually is in Sweden, and then take into account that this is Iron Maiden we’re talking about, a giant in the music industry and one of the forerunners in the popularization of metal throughout the world.The Book of Souls is the bands first album in five years and the fans are ecstatic to hear the new material and to see them perform that once more!
