Up the Irons! Iron Maiden Come to Madison Square Garden July 2010

by

When we spoke with Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain last summer, the Florida resident told us that his 35-year-old metal band would be touring again in 2010. This afternoon brings word that Iron Maiden is, in fact, coming to Madison Square Garden on Monday, July 12. This works out extremely well for McBrain, a golf obsessive who’d expressed disappointment at the possibility of a tour eclipsing the Ryder Cup–the Final Frontier World Tour ends July 20. Tickets for the MSG show go onsale Saturday, March 20 at 10 am, presale happens three days before through www.ironmaiden.com, and we’re currently rallying an army of secret-metalhead drunks to flood the balconies.
