Rerun to the Hills

Iron Maiden news from nme.com:

The CARLING WEEKEND: READING AND LEEDS FESTIVALS headliners IRON MAIDEN have announced they are playing classic set at this year’s bash.

Talking last night (March 21) at the launch to the event, singer Bruce Dickinson declared The Carling Weekend “just genius” before announcing his band’s plans.

“We’re going to be doing a set from just our first four albums, so they’ll be songs we haven’t played in 15 or 20 years,” he explained. “Many of our young fans won’t have heard this songs been played live - it’s great.”

...The Carling Weekend: Reading and Leeds takes place between August 26 and 28 and features the Pixies and Foo Fighters along with Iron Maiden as headliners.
Wow, the Pixies AND Iron Maiden! I wish I could go. Maybe I'll sell some candy bars to fund my trip.
