It’s a big day for gig announcements, the latest being that Iron Maiden is coming to Belfast’s Belsonic in 2020.
The heavy metal band announced that they’re set to return to Northern Ireland for a headline show at Belfast's Belsonic in Ormeau Park on June 15.
Iron Maiden achieved initial success during the 1980s but they’ve enjoyed enduring popularity with somewhat of a cult following. Considered to be one of the most successful heavy metal bands in history, they have over 90 million album sales and more than 2,000 live performances already under their belt.

IRON MAIDEN will headline @downloadfest on Saturday June 13, and @belsonicbelfast on Monday June 15. These will be the only UK performances by the band in 2020. Maiden are currently on the U.S.A leg of their Legacy Of The Beast Tour which continues into Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Chile in October. Bruce comments "Next year we will play a number of countries and cities we have yet to visit on this incredible tour, so it is terrific to be able to accept the invitation to return to Download in 2020 and we will certainly go to town and add a few extra items to the show. This will be our seventh time headlining at Donington Park. It's home turf and we all really enjoy playing this Festival, the vibe from the crowd is always fantastic, and it’s great to be returning to Belfast, this time for a Festival date too.” Download - Sat 13th June http://irnmdn.co/download Belsonic – Monday 15th June http://irnmdn.co/belsonic #IronMaiden #LegacyOfTheBeastTour #BePartOfTheLegacy
