the iron maidens

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.

Frontlady 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, drummer Linda 'Nikki McBURRain' McDonald 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 fifteen years to finally get here and we are SO glad to announce our return with five shows this time!"

The Iron Maidens are Kirsten 'Bruce Chickinson' Rosenberg on vocals, Linda 'Nikki McBURRain' McDonald on drums, Nikki 'Davina Murray' Stringfield, Courtney 'Adriana Smith' Cox on guitars and Wanda 'Steph Harris' Ortiz on bass. All band members are highly trained professionals with diversified musical backgrounds, ranging from orchestral and musical theatre to blues and rock.

Formed in 2001 in Southern California, they have quickly established themselves as one of the most notorious tribute act in the US, progressively expanding their fame far and beyond the Americas. 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 Iron Maidens will be trooping the UK in October with the following dates:

Wednesday 25th October: Cardiff The Globe
Thursday 26th October: Reading Sub 89
Friday 27th October: Leamington Spa Assembly
Saturday 28th October: Sheffield Plug
