Rock legends Iron Maiden have confirmed that the final show ever of their massive ‘Somewhere Back in Time World Tour 2008 — 9’ will be in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on the 2nd of April at the BankAtlantic Center. This, the band’s first show in Florida for 13 years, will definitely be the last show of one of the most ambitious rock tours ever undertaken and promises to be a big party night for both the band and audience.
Says drummer and local Florida resident Nicko McBrain; “We’ll be arriving right in the middle of Spring Break so this really promises to be a huge party for everyone and I’m sure there will be more than a few sore heads in Fort Lauderdale the following day! The whole tour has been an amazing experience and this final leg back on Ed Force One promises to be crazier than ever!.
“It was quite something to bring to reality the mad idea of creating a flying tour bus out of a Boeing 757 but it’s enabled us to go further to reach many fans in countries we have never played before and also revisit fans where we haven’t seen for some time, and it’s a long time since we played in Florida! The 757 truly has been our ‘magic carpet’ as Bruce describes it.
“Luckily for me the magic carpet is stopping not far from my front door which is very handy and nice way to finish this tour. Not far to stagger home!!”
