ON THIS DAY: 09.09.1999 The reunited Iron Maiden played their first show in Europe with Adrian Smith and Bruce Dickinson back in the fold

On this day exactly fifteen years ago Iron Maiden played their first European show with the new six piece line-up we know today.

09.09.1999 Iron Maiden hit Paris and Bercy in front of a capacity crowd with a stunning setlist that amped up expectations for what was in the cards for the reunited band. But no one could foresee what we know now. 15 years later Iron Maiden has become one of the biggest rock acts in the world, playing to audiences exceeding the glory of their heydays.
