Iron Maiden - To Play In China For First Time Ever


Heavy metal legends Iron Maiden will make their highly anticipated first-ever visit to China in April on The Book Of Souls World Tour, playing at Beijing LeSports Center on April 24th and Shanghai Mercedes-Benz Arena on April 26th. The band is promoting their double album The Book Of Souls. Iron Maiden announced last year that touring plans to support the album wouldn't happen until 2016 to allow singer Bruce Dickinson time to fully recuperate after his successful cancer treatment.

Tickets go on sale from 2 p.m. on January 19th through ticketing hotline 400-610-3721, and online here.

That's great for Iron Maiden and their Chinese fans! One thing bothering me ... first ever in the headline. Ever is totally unnecessary as just "first" means the same thing.

How far is Zagreb and Beograd? how easy is go there, I mean crossing border?
I feel sorry for you man
Maybe its because Bosnia is not in EU? I have not seen in any MS news Macedonia and Albania has any metal concerts at all, same goes whit Bosnia
Is it EU or some visa shit or local promoters? if Maiden goes there how many people would show up into the gig?

Nothing wrong with "first time ever" the "ever" is used there to put extra emphasis on the fact that the band will be playing there for the first time.

Not trying to be a butt ... It's just a big grammar "no no" in journo circles.
