Iron Maiden 'Maiden England Tour' European Leg Announced

This year one of the greatest bands in history, Iron Maiden, toured North America on the 'Maiden England' Tour which was based on the 1989 concert video of the same name (which is set to be re-released next year, hopefully along with one of this year's shows).
At the time they mentioned it would be extending into a world tour in 2013 which has now become official with the announcement of the European leg of the tour.
They are set to headline the Download Festival in Donnington for a record breaking fifth time next year!
It was also more recently announced that they are also to perform at the brand new Friends Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on July 13 2013.

Check out this link for the tour dates list which is set to expand soon!

AC/DC 'Live at River Plate' album announced!

AC/DC's first live album since 1992's 'AC/DC Live' was announced earlier this month, following on from the DVD of the same name released last year. The album will have the same track listing as the DVD and will be released on both CD and vinyl formats on November 20th. Awesome!

Run-D.M.C. To Reunite at FunFunFun Fest 2012!

Okay, so this news is a few months old now, but I thought it deserved a bit more coverage. Hip-hop legends  Run DMC are set to perform on the 'Blue Stage' FunFunFun Fest in Austin, Texas in November 2012. They broke up in 2002 after the tragic murder of Jam Master Jay but the two remaining members reunited earlier this year to perform at Jay Z's 'Made In America' concert. The words "Jam Master Jay Forever" were written along the top of the stage for the performance and I suspect they will do the same thing in November.

I am very happy to hear that my favorite hip-hop group have finally reunited but I doubt we will see any new material from them. I would really like to see another tour with the Beastie Boys, that would be awesome!

Thanks for reading!

Edit: Wednesday 7th November: 
Here is the setlist for the show which took place at the weekend for anyone who looks back at my older posts! :) Looks like the perfect Run DMC setlist to me!
