Wacken Open Air

Iron 'Wacken' Maiden

Usually the best is saved until the end. The biggest headliner concludes the event. This is at least how most of the festivals do it. In Wacken different rules apply: this year, the Open Air kicked-off with three of the best known names at once - and made Metal history by doing so. The guys from the 80s Sex & Drugs & Rock'n'Roll legend Moetley Crue, as well as the Shock Rock icon Alice Cooper and the mega Metal stars Iron Maiden opened the 21st edition of the world's largest Metal festival in the village of Wacken, in Schleswig-Holstein yesterday (August 5th). 75,000 fans, one third of which came from the neighboring countries and further away celebrated Maiden in particular, frenetically. This time around, they didn't just offer up their popular best-of program, but handed out a different treat: Captain Bruce Dickinson and Co. presented their brand-new opus "The Final Frontier" which will be released on August 13th.
