The Iron Maidens Make Music History Plus New Ticket Sales Record
The Iron Maidens, the Worlds Only Female Tribute to the legendary band Iron Maiden, recently returned from their South American debut tour where they not only helped break ticket sales records but made music history as well. Selling 6,000 tickets in the first 12 hours for the Gillmanfest-Barquismetal 2011 Venezuelan Festival they beat out previous ticket sales title holders METALLICA who held the record at 5,000 tickets sold in 2 days. The Iron Maidens also made music history by being the first and only all female metal band to perform on Venezuelan soil. Twice during The Iron Maidens performance festival promoters stopped their set because the crowd of 40,000+ concert goers broke through the security lines.
Finishing off the festival night,The Iron Maidens joined former Judas Priest/Iced Earth and Yngwie frontman,Tim “Ripper” Owens, on stage for 2 songs, “Breaking the Law” and “Flight Of Icarus”.
Formed in 2001, these five women, Kirsten Bruce Chickinson Rosenberg, Linda Nikki McBURRain McDonald, Wanda Steph Harris Ortiz, Elizabeth Devina Murray Schall and Courtney Adriana Smith Cox comprise excellent musicianship with an elaborate stage show with effects and appearances from Iron Maiden mascot, Eddie, and other theatrical characters that have gained the band national and international recognition. This female musical force has the energy and chemistry reminiscent of Iron Maiden itself.
