The Southern California all-female Iron Maiden tribute band announce a special appearance in London.

The Iron Maidens, billed as the “World’s Only Female Tribute to Iron Maiden,” have gained notoriety in the US. Besides their female distinction, their aggressive tour schedule, dynamic stage performances, and consummate musicianship have earned them fans in their own right. In yet another achievement, the band announced plans to release their first full-length studio tribute album in April.

The band features Linda “Nikki McBURRain” McDonald (drums), Nikki “Davina Murray” Stringfield and Courtney “Adriana Smith” Cox (guitars), Kirsten “Bruce Chickinson” Rosenberg (vocals), and Wanda “Steph Harris” Ortiz on bass.

It’s been fifteen years in coming, but this year the band will be making their first UK appearance since their formation in 2001. Although Courtney and Linda have played in London before working with other artists, it will be Wanda and Nikki’s first show on British soil. The band will also be celebrating Nikki’s birthday at their debut London show at the legendary Shepherds Bush Empire on Thursday, April 14.

Tickets for the show are available now via Ticketweb. General admission is £20 plus booking fees. The band will announce the support act for the show at a later date.
