WORLD’S No.1 ALL-FEMALE IRON MAIDEN TRIBUTE BACK IN THE UK IN 2017

WORLD’S No.1 ALL-FEMALE IRON MAIDEN TRIBUTE BACK IN THE UK IN 2017

The Iron Maidens press shot 1Run to the Hills: The Iron Maidens are back in town!

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.

Frontwoman 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, Linda comments ‘Playing our very first show in London last year was an energetic kick in the butt! Some of the audience traveled from quite far, we understand, to make this one special show. They were absolutely AMAZING! It took us 15 years to finally get here and we are SO glad to announce our return with 5 shows this time!’

Book now and get ready to scream for the loudest, sexiest and most talented metal maidens either side of the pond!

WORLD FAMOUS TRIBUTE ACT THE IRON MAIDENS BRING THEIR SHOW TO LONDON IN 2016

WORLD FAMOUS TRIBUTE ACT THE IRON MAIDENS BRING THEIR SHOW TO LONDON IN 2016

TheIronMaidensPresspicWorld’s only all-female Iron Maiden tribute band the Iron Maidens have announced a one-off show at Shepherds Bush Empire on 14th April 2016.

Excited front-woman Kirsten Chickinson said: ‘For years people have been asking when we’re coming to the U.K. so it feels almost surreal that it’s finally happening. To play London–the city where Iron Maiden actually began in 1975–is thrilling and also daunting; I expect the “home” fans to be the most discerning but we are definitely up for the challenge! To see where it all began, this is hallowed ground’.

Formed in 2001 in Southern California, the Iron Maidens have quickly established themselves as one of the most notorious tribute act in the US, progressively expanding their fame far and beyond the Americas. These five women 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 grim reaper, the devil and more.

The Iron Maidens are highly trained professionals with diversified musical backgrounds, ranging from orchestral and musical theater to blues and rock. The line-up is Linda ‘Nikki McBURRain’ McDonald on drums, Nikki ‘Davina Murray’ Stringfield and Courtney ‘Adriana Smith’ Cox on guitars, Kirsten ‘Bruce Chickinson’ Rosenberg on vocals and Wanda ‘Steph Harris’ Ortiz on bass.
While Iron Maiden’s latest album hits the stores, the Iron Maidens celebrate the recent release of their first full-length studio album, the first studio tribute CD to a band ever recorded entirely by one artist; the cover artwork featuring a female monster was designed by none other than Eddie’s creator Derek Riggs.

Despite being undoubtedly five rocking hot ladies, the Iron Maidens are not just pretty faces: in their career they have been joined on stage by the likes of Alex Skolnik from Testament, Lemmy, Megadeth’s Dave Ellefson, Anthrax’ Scott Ian and Judas Priest’s Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens. They were chosen to support Danzig, Cypress Hill, Snoop Dogg, Nightwish and Nevermore amongst others. They’ve been featured in Playboy and Hustler as well as Rolling Stone, Guitar World and Drum magazine.

The Iron Maidens will bring their show to the UK for the very first time on Thursday 14th April 2016, with a one-off date at Shepherds Bush Empire. Courtney and Linda have played in London before with different bands – Linda even at the same venue! – while it’s the first encounter with the British crowd for Wanda and Nikki. Give them a warm welcome, hang around and make sure you get Nikki a drink: the show is on her birthday and she’s looking forward to celebrating London style!
