IRON MAIDEN HONOURED BY BILLBOARD MAGAZINE:
May 8, 2008
FIRST TIME IN BILLBOARD HISTORY — BILLBOARD LOGO WILL APPEAR WITH A SPECIAL IRON MAIDEN TWIST
Billboard magazine, the hugely influential New York based weekly “bible” of the international music industry, is set to feature IRON MAIDEN in a special supplement contained in its May 17 (street date May 10) issue in recognition of the band’s continued and increasing USA and global success. Running 40 pages or more, Billboard magazine will give an overview of Maiden’s current “Somewhere Back in Time” World Tour, the band and the key people around them, and their illustrious history as one of the world’s premier live bands. Issued the same week as their ‘Best of’ album Somewhere Back in Time, the magazine will also pay Maiden the unique honour of having the front cover Billboard logo in Maiden font style, marking the first time in the magazine’s history that it will not have the copyrighted Billboard logo on the cover.
Maiden fans note – Being a specialist magazine Billboard is not always available at standard newsagents but it is possible to purchase this very special issue directly via http://www.orderbillboard.com/BackIssueList.aspx?PNO=BLI
