Ini sudah tentu menjadi berita paling gempak bagi peminat IRON MAIDEN nusantara.
3 kali wow!
Bro deaf_angel sudah pun melaporkan rumours ni beberapa minggu yang lalu. Sekarang ni rumours makin kuat. Dan promoter dari Indonesia pun dah berani keluarkan kenyataan media.
Feb tu bersamaan dengan mulanya tour sempena album baru, The Final Frontier (rebiu KRENMAUT DI SINI). Dah ada beberapa peminat tegar di Malaysia yang beli tiket untuk tengok show ini di Australia.
Sudah tentu ini menjadi berita baik bagi mereka yang tight-budgeted! Boleh start menabung dari hari ini.
Seperti yang dilaporkan oleh blabbermouth:
The Jakarta Post reports that British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN will perform in the Indonesia cities of Jakarta and Bali in February 2011, a local promotor said on Sunday. "They [IRON MAIDEN] have confirmed it," Tommy Pratama, a promoter from Original Production, according to TempoInteraktif.com.
The Jakarta show will likely take place on either February 17 or February 18, with the Bali concert to follow two days later.
Rod Smallwood, IRON MAIDEN's longtime manager, told The New York Times that more than 800,000 copies of the band's latest album, "The Final Frontier", had been shipped to retailers around the world by the end of August, with the group having sold about 85 million records in its 30-year career.
"A lot of bands could learn a lot from MAIDEN," Smallwood said. "MAIDEN is essentially about the relationship with the fans, and nothing comes between that. They don't want to be rock stars. They just enjoy playing for the fans."
According to David Kassler, chief operating officer of EMI for Europe, digital tracking services showed only small levels of illegal downloading of "The Final Frontier", which is attributable in part to the fact that IRON MAIDEN's songs do not fit the mold of a radio single — three of them, on the newest release, are more than nine minutes long.
"You'd expect some people to be pirating, but they don't," Kassler told The New York Times. "They want the physical album. They love the artwork, the lyrics. It's something they want to show their friends and family."
