Get ready to rock, as the world’s only female tribute to Iron Maiden, The Iron Maidens, bring their explosive show back to the Burton Cummings Theatre on Friday, May 26.
This will be the band’s second appearance at the theatre since 2018. After a 2019 date was rescheduled to 2020, the show was further delayed by Covid closures. Tickets from the 2019 and 2020 dates will be honoured for this new show date. The band is excited to play for their Winnipeg fans, many of whom have been waiting for the band’s return for over 1,000 days.
Formed in 2001, The Iron Maidens have quickly established themselves as one of southern California’s most popular tribute acts and are rapidly gaining international recognition. The band boasts beauty as well as excellent musicianship, lively stage presence, and a remarkable stage show with theatrical scenes interspersed throughout.
First and foremost on the agenda of The Iron Maidens is talent. These women are highly trained professionals with diversified musical backgrounds ranging from orchestral and musical theatre to blues and rock. The band and its members have been the recipients of many awards including best tribute band, and best in category (guitar, bass, drums, voice) at events such as The Rock City News Awards, The LA Music Awards, and The All Access Magazine Award Show, to name a few.
The line-up is Kirsten “Bruce Chickinson” Rosenberg on vocals, Linda “Nikki McBURRain” McDonald on drums, Courtney “Adriana Smith” Cox and Nikki “Davina Murray” Stringfield on guitars and Wanda "Steph Harris" Ortiz on bass.
The Iron Maidens cover Iron Maiden material from all eras of the band’s career, encompassing the band’s biggest hits as well as fan favourites. This not-to-be-missed show includes appearances by Maiden mascot Eddie, the grim reaper, the devil and more.
