The Iron Maidens Change London Venue
Following the closure of O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in December 2015 and further inspections, structural engineers have advised that works to the roof structure will extend into April 2016. All shows up to and including the 18 April will be moved to other venues in London or rescheduled as necessary.
The world’s only all-female Iron Maiden tribute band The Iron Maidens will now play their one-off London show at the O2 Islington Academy on 14 April. Tickets for the Shepherd’s Bush Empire show are valid for the new venue, show times are the same.
Tickets are available from:
General admission £20 + booking fees. Support Forever Never, doors open at 7pm, curfew at 11pm. O2 Academy Islington, Angel Central, 16 Parkfield Street, London, N1 0PS
Formed in 2001 in Southern California, the Iron Maidens have quickly established themselves as one of the most notorious tribute act in the US, progressively expanding their fame far and beyond the Americas. These five women have conquered the attention of fans and fellow musicians with their musical prowess and electrifying live shows, where they perform hits and fan favourites from all phases of Iron Maiden’s career with appearances by mascot Eddie, the grim reaper, the devil and more.
The Iron Maidens are highly trained professionals with diversified musical backgrounds, ranging from orchestral and musical theater to blues and rock. The line-up is Linda ‘Nikki McBURRain’ McDonald on drums, Nikki ‘Davina Murray’ Stringfield and Courtney ‘Adriana Smith’ Cox on guitars, Kirsten ‘Bruce Chickinson’ Rosenberg on vocals and Wanda ‘Steph Harris’ Ortiz on bass.
While Iron Maiden’s latest album hits the stores, the Iron Maidens celebrate the recent release of their first full-length studio album, the first studio tribute CD to a band ever recorded entirely by one artist; the cover artwork featuring a female monster was designed by none other than Eddie’s creator Derek Riggs.
