RETURNS, BIGGER, BETTER & GOING WHERE NO FESTIVAL
HAS GONE BEFORE...
used to be a saying at Soundwave that no one band
is bigger than the festival.
saying will be tested in 2011 as we proudly announce
a rare chance to see rock legends IRON MAIDEN as the
headline artist for next years festival. Maiden
are one of the few artists that inspire loyalty and
worship by a constantly growing army that spans several
generations of not only fans, but other rock musicians
ranging from todays biggest metal bands to pop
makes Iron Maiden unique amongst their peers is that
the band has never lost their creative touch and their
ability to deliver album after album of greatness.
Just when you would think there cannot be another
hitherto undiscovered original yet amazing guitar
riff; Maiden turn up with another album full of new
classics to add to metal and rocks greatest
a fool would bet against the bands upcoming
album, The Final Frontier, being anything
less than a masterpiece. Only a fool would bet against
Iron Maiden, period.
will be bringing with them the full stage production
that featured in their hugely successful recent tour
of North America, where they played to almost 400,000
fans over the 25 shows. And of course that includes
Eddies latest incarnation..!!
our gargantuan headliners is a cast of rock, punk
and metal luminaries, headed by the regal guitar rock
of QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, metal gods SLAYER, indie
pioneers PRIMUS, the incomparable SLASH and fifty
or so other international artists who form the who
is who of cutting edge music for the coming decade.
that is just the 1st announcement...
