MAIDEN TRIVIA OF THE DAY – IL KILLER TOURMaiden only had played in Italy as a supporting band, but this time they were the headlining act and they were really nervous after seeing how many punters had shown up to see them.
This first Maiden concert as headliners in Italy, took place today, 40 years ago, in San Remo at the Ariston Theater and is reviewed in an Italian newspaper called La Stampa dated on April 1, 1981. As a curious fact, according to some Italian fans that I interviewed, the concert was initially scheduled for the previous day (March 29) but was postponed to the 30th for reasons concerning the availability of the theater, however, I’m able to confirm that this isn’t true.
