Iron Maiden confirmed on the "Download TV Festival" - June 12-14

So, Download has posted this today on their social media, announcing some bands to take part in live streams on the June 12-14th weekend:


Maiden is in it, and the description says it will be 3 days of "unseen performances". Maybe it's the full performance of the 2016 concert there during the Book of Souls Tour, or there's a chance the band has sent them some videos from the LOTB tour. Who knows, maybe even from 2013...

Lineup:

Friday: Lacuna Coil, PUP, Motionless In White, Steel Panther, Wargasm, WWE NXT Superstars, Biffy Clyro, Sleep Token, Airbourne, Wayward Sons, Fozzy, The Offspring, Black Veil Brides, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Deftones and KISS.

Saturday: Alter Bridge, Funeral For A Friend, Loathe, Poppy, Creeper, Mastodon, Holding Absence, The Wildhearts, Bush, Killswitch Engage, Those Damn Crows, The Pretty Reckless, Gojira and Iron Maiden.

Sunday: Babymetal, The Darkness, Baroness, The Hara, Volbeat, Periphery, Bowling For Soup, Korn, Skillet, Wage War, Powerwolf, Disturbed, Alestorm and System Of A Down.

My guess is actual Download footage not screened before. Hope it's TBOS, although Cabaret England was okay too.

exclusive = i guess it's headline for next year
Almost impossible since one of the support bands leaked news about a show in Zagreb the day after Download finishes. There's no way they'll be able to move everything from Donington Park to Zagreb in one or two days.

Or they could announce a second Live remasters: Live at Donnington 92…or the first chapter of Adrian's book readed by himself…or Nicko's back to sonor one more time
