According to Chile’s La Tercera newspaper, IRON MAIDEN is the biggest foreign concert draw ever in Chile, with a total of 226,000 tickets sold for the seven shows the band has played there since 1996.
On October 2nd, Iron Maiden finished their massive Maiden England 2013 World Tour in front of an audience of 60,105 spectators at the national stadium Estadio Nacional in Santiago, Chile. An interesting turn of events considering Maiden were banned by the Church from playing in Chile in 1992.
La Tercera reported that Iron Maiden snubbed massive acts like U2 (212.000), ROGER WATERS (195,000) and MADONNA (182,000) from the number one spot on the list.
