Istanbul gets ready to rock with Iron Maiden concert
The legendary British rockers Iron Maiden is in Istanbul tonight on Beşiktaş İnönü stage as part of the Vodafone Istanbul Calling summer series.Iron Maiden will be in Istanbul tonight as part of the Vodafone Istanbul Calling summer series, one of Istanbul’s biggest festivals. The legendary British rockers are the latest in a series of foreign and local stars to hit the stage at venues throughout Istanbul.
Founded by bassist Steve Harris in the mid-1970s, Iron Maiden were already firmly established as heavy metal’s brightest hopes when they stormed the world with their third album (and first with vocalist Bruce Dickinson), “The Number Of The Beast” in 1982. Throughout the decade that followed, Iron Maiden recorded and toured relentlessly with seven new studio albums, one live album and seven world tours in the 1980s alone.
Cementing their reputation as one of the hardest-touring bands on the planet and with the unmistakable figure of band mascot Eddie adorning every album cover and T-shirt, Iron Maiden created a world of their own – one that welcomed fans from every culture, creed and social sphere with a guarantee of heartfelt conviction and unprecedented professionalism. The Vodafone Istanbul Calling festival is sponsored by Vodafone, Garanti Bank and Coca-Cola.
