Run to the Hills - The Iron Maidens are coming back to the UK.
After their triumphant UK debut in 2016, the world’s one and only all-female Iron Maiden tribute return to our shores in October, and this time they’re here to conquer the land of their idols beyond London.
Frontwoman Kirsten Chickinson can’t hide her excitement: ‘Having played the UK last year - and even getting to meet some of the original members of Iron Maiden - was a dream come true. So returning to Iron Maiden Holy Land to play even more UK dates really takes the biscuit! I can't say I'll have my pilot's license in time to fly us over but maybe they'll let me drive the lorry between shows!’. Chickinson and her hot troopers have announced a five date tour, which will see them bringing their electrifying live extravaganza back to the capital’s O2 Islington Academy and to Leamington Spa, Cardiff, Sheffield and Reading.
Overwhelmed by the enthusiastic fans reception, Linda comments ‘Playing our very first show in London last year was an energetic kick in the butt! Some of the audience travelled from quite far, we understand, to make this one special show. They were absolutely AMAZING! It took us 15 years to finally get here and we are so glad to announce our return with five shows this time!’

They 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.
