It’s been over a decade since Iron Maiden’s last concert in Bogota, Colombia, and their fans in this Latin American country really want to see them live. It took only 21 minutes for all the tickets for this concert to sell out, 11 months before it’s even scheduled to take place.
Iron Maiden will return to Bogota, Colombia for the first time in 13 years on November 24, 2024. Even though their concert is almost a year away, it took only 21 minutes for the band’s Colombian fans to snatch all the 42,000 tickets for El Campín Stadium.
Alfredo Villaveces, managing director of Move Concerts Colombia, said they’ve expected strong sales given the long wait since the band’s last concert, but seeing the tickets sell out so fast has been truly mind-blowing.
“Never in our wildest dreams did we think it would blow out in 21 minutes and smash sales records. And if we factor in the fact we went up so far ahead of the show date – something no other artist had done here – it is truly amazing,” said Villaveces in a press release.
Iron Maiden’s The Future Past World Tour kicked off this May, and they’re expected to go on the road next September. The heavy metal band will perform a series of concerts in Oceania, Asia, North America, and South America throughout Fall 2024.
