Metal legends Iron Maiden have announced that they will pack up the jumbo jet and embark on a new world tour named after their 16th studio album, The Book Of Souls.
Hardcore Maiden fans who are worried that money-hungry scalpers and ticket re-sale websites will cost them an arm and a leg to get a ticket can now breathe a little easier.
Why is this? Because tickets for the tour will be almost impossible for scalpers or second-hand sites like Stub Hub to get their grips on tickets. Ticketmaster announced that it will only sell paperless ticket entries for the tour, where buyers will need to bring their credit card and ID to get in the venue after purchase.
Ticketmaster released a statement in regards to the subject:
Where possible, the North American IRON MAIDEN shows will operate a paperless ticket policy. Select tickets will be sold via Ticketmaster’s Paperless Ticket delivery (also known as Credit Card Entry), which means fans will not receive a physical concert ticket for their entry into the event. Buying paperless helps ensure fans have secure and convenient access to event tickets at the intended original sale price. On the day of show, concertgoers just need to bring the credit card they used for the ticket purchase and a government-issued photo ID to the concert. All members of the ticket purchaser’s party must be present at the same time to enter the venue. The venue’s ticket usher will swipe their credit card upon entry and present each person in their party with seat locator slips for quick access into the show.
