Iron Maiden: Live In Tampa, Florida April 17; Fan-Filmed Footage
Iron Maiden´s show in Tampa, Florida, was the final US date of the 2011 The Final Frontier tour. They will continue the tour in Europe, starting May 28th in Germany. (Tour dates).
Below you can watch some high quality fan-filmed video footage from the show.
Lead singer and airline captain Bruce Dickinson, who will again be one of the 757 pilots, comments, “Last year when we took the plane ‘round the planet, we decided to play a show in Fort Lauderdale, Florida at the end, coming out of Brazil and sort of on our way home. This had the dual purpose of dropping our Florida-based drummer, Nicko, off at home and also to see if anyone still wanted to see us in Florida, as it had been so many years since we had played a show there. When the show sold out in advance at the Bank Atlantic Centre, l guess we found we still had many fans down that way. We decided this time around not only to visit Fort Lauderdale again, but also to play Tampa, where we last played in August 1991. The fans last year in Fort Lauderdale gave us a tremendous welcome and we hope it will be the same in Tampa, which will be the last stop on this leg of The Final Frontier Tour.”
