While Killswitch Engage are special guests on several of Iron Maiden’s upcoming dates, there is no mention of an opening act in the UAE.

Iron Maiden, which formed in East London in 1975, are pioneers of the new wave of British heavy metal.

The band has become known for hits such as ‘Run to the Hills’ and ‘Fear of the Dark’. Their 16th studio album — and latest to date — was ‘The Book of Souls’, released in 2015.

Iron Maiden previously performed at the now-defunct Dubai Desert Rock Festival in 2007 and again at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre in 2009.

This will mark their first performance in the city in 10 years.
