Iron Maiden’s performance will follow on from their Maiden England world tour and is expected to be one of the last times some of their songs will be played live.
Metallica will be giving the fans even more control by placing their set list into their hands. Fans will be able to vote for what songs they want Metallica to perform and the 17 favourites will be played with Metallica picking the 18th song.
