Exodus To Open For Iron Maiden In Chile
Thrash metal veterans Exodus will be opening for Iron Maiden on April 10, 2011 at Estadio Nacional in Santiago, Chile.
Exodus guitarist Gary Holt: “We had two shows left on the Thrashfest [European] tour [with Kreator and Death Angel], everybody was tired and burned out, and then I got word that Exodus will open for the one and only Iron Maiden in Chile! Best news ever! Just unbelievable!”
He adds, “There’s no one bigger than Iron Maiden in South America. I’ve seen the DVD footage of their shows down in that part of the world, and to actually get to open for them ANYWHERE is amazing! But down there? Absolutely spectacular!
“We’ll be playing Santiago with my heroes — a band whose songs we were covering at backyard parties — in front of 65,000 people! Suddenly we all got a big second wind! Stoked beyond belief is an understatement!”
