Iron Maiden has lined up another stadium show for the Maiden England Tour 2013. The band is set to play BJK Inonu Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey on July the 26th.

This is the very same stadium that hosted the Big 4 Sonisphere show featuring Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax back in 2010. The stadium has a seating capacity of 32.000 for football matches, probably in the 45.000 vein for concerts.

At this point it seems like Iron Maiden has opted for stadium and big outdoor shows in the eastern part of Europe at the back end of the tour. Both Prague, Bucharest and Istanbul is lined up after each other.

Iron Maiden last performed in Istanbul at the sold out 17.000 capacity Sonisphere festival in 2011.

Anthrax and Voodoo Six will be supporting.
