Iron Maiden to play Brixton Academy in June

Metal legends Iron Maiden will play their last UK show for at least a year on 24th June with a special appearnce at London's 4,800 capacity Brixton Academy.

The show is in aid of the Clive Burr MS Trust - set up to help the band's former drummer (who played on their first three albums) and other sufferers of MS. The band's set will feature songs from their latest A Matter Of Life And Death album and also songs from The Number Of The Beast.

Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson said, "We added this final date to help continue the great work that the Clive Burr MS Fund has done. We've had an amazing time on this tour so far and the summer shows are shaping up to be something quite special in their own right. It promises to be a fun and special way to celebrate the end of the tour with all our friends who have supported us and Clive over the years."

Tickets are on sale to Iron Maiden fan club members today but will available to the general public on Friday 1st June. The band will also play Donington's Download festival on Sunday 10th June.
