Greek guitarist Gus G. (Ozzy Osbourne, FIREWIND) will join former IRON MAIDEN singer Paul Di’Anno for two concerts next month
Taking place in Greece, the shows will see Di’Anno perform songs from the two IRON MAIDEN albums he sang on, “Iron Maiden” and “Killers” – the band’s first and sophomore LP’s.
Those concerts will take place on December 14 at Gagarin205 in Athens and December 16 at the Principal Club Theater in Thessaloniki.
“Excited to see Paul after many years,” Gus said, “and honored to play some legendary IRON MAIDEN by his side. For two nights only! Where else?”
Di’Anno recently underwent an extensive knee surgery back in September after receiving physiotherapy and lymphatic drainage treatments in Croatia.
“His rehabilitation is going fantastic,” says author and hardcore IRON MAIDEN fan Stjepan Juras, who is currently watching after Paul, posted to social media over the weekend. “The wound from the surgery has finally healed and will be completely safe in about a week. Paul stood up today for the first time without an orthosis. For the first time, he relied only on his leg, and it’s fantastic. What now follows is the return of all his atrophied muscles to full power so that he can walk and move more and more. [After] a short break in rehabilitation, Paul will use a short visit to Greece in order (as he says) to feel that feeling of what he has to fight for.”
Paul Di’Anno played the first concert since his surgery on October 1 at the Keep It True Rising II festival in Würzburg, Germany.
