IRON MAIDEN played a sold-out concert on its “Legacy Of The Beast” tour in front of 61,867 fans at the football arena Ullevi in Gothenburg, Sweden on July 22.
To coincide with the event, MTRX provided a special event train for IRON MAIDEN fans from Stockholm to Gothenburg. Every single rider on the train received a merch bag with an Eddie mask and a special 12-inch vinyl single.
The Trainspotting In Sweden YouTube channel has posted new video of “Train 666” which you can check out below. The train has continued in regular service with the IRON MAIDEN decorations since the concert took place.
“Sweden has always been important to MAIDEN so we thought they deserved us to go an extra 110 percent, and we wanted to put on an experience and event for their fans,” said Darren Edwards, international product manager at Warner Music, in a video tour posted by Sweden’s SVT (Sveriges Television).
He added: “The whole band flew in early. Steve’s [Harris, MAIDEN bassist] playing football [soccer] the day before the show, as he often does when he’s in Sweden, Nicko [McBrain, drums] is probably playing golf …so there’s just this special connection. They love Sweden, and they know the fans are really special over here.”
