With Iron Maiden rocking the Download 2013 crowd just last weekend, metal fans will be pleased to hear of plans to close-out the European leg of their World Tour with a London gig.

The gig in question will take place at the O2 Arena on Saturday 3rd August 2013 and will be "ticketless", meaning purchasers of the tickets (and their party) will all need to be present as the purchaser's credit card is swiped and all members of the party enter the venue. The ticket-holder will also need to bring a valid, government-issued form of ID on the day.

Fan-club members will be able to buy tickets via from Monday 24th August, with tickets on general sale now. The band last played a gig in London almost exactly two years to the day of the 2013 gig - also at the O2 Arena, so expect massive demand!
