Iron Maiden to Rock Costa Rica

November 9, 2007

Come February, Ticos will get a chance to head-bang to legendary heavy metal.

British metal band Iron Maiden will visit Costa Rica for the first time as part of a massive 21-city tour starting in India and finishing in Canada, bringing with it the outlandish show for which it is known, according to event promoter Evenpro.

It’s a show big enough to charter a Boeing 757 to carry 12 tons of equipment and a 70-person crew.

Iron Maiden, formed in 1975, has had a slew of heavy metal hits throughout its career and has legions of fans around the world. Their mascot Eddie, a cartoon of a skeleton with long blonde hair, has become a pop culture icon.

The band is scheduled to play at Ricardo Saprissa Stadium in the northern San José district of Tibás Feb. 26, 2008. Ticket prices have not yet been announced.

Bruce Dickinson, the band’s lead singer, will pilot the chartered plane that will be painted with Iron Maiden insignias, and, of course, Eddie.
