Iron Maiden is coming to Peru in their first-ever live performance in Lima slated for March next year. Many fans are in disbelief, excited to see the British heavy metal icons after so many years.

For over a year, El Comercio has received dozens of letters asking whether rumors were true of Iron Maiden planning a show in Peru. Today, fans can celebrate as the band has confirmed their show for March 26 next year at the Estadio Nacional.

With over 25 years creating some of the heaviest music on the planet, Iron Maiden Finally many will be able to hear their greatest hits like “Number of the Beast,” “The Trooper,” “Aces High,” “Hallowed Be Thy Name” and more.

Together for more than 25 years, Iron Maiden have been widely accepted around the world and praised by music critics to be one of the most influential heavy metal bands on the planet.

Songs from the band’s latest albums, "Brave New World" (2000) and "A Matter of Life and Death" (2006), are expected to be on the play list for the upcoming show.

The band’s live shows some of the most extreme with pyrotechnics, a plan where lead singer Bruce Dickinson drives and five Eddies, Iron Maiden’s official mascot.
