News, updates, and press releases from the general skateboard industry and beyond.
Better late than never...here are some photos from last Tuesdays Color 8.1 Toronto Release Party Slash Drink and Destroy Tuesdays. Drinks were had, tunes were played at max volume, mags were gawked at in dim light, and I escaped into the night before things got too gnarly. Damn my early mornings! Good Work 751 and Color Magazine, not such good work to Canada post for not getting "This time tomorrow" to the bar in time for the party. 'Tis a shame too... I hear good things about Jimmy MacDonalds part.

IRON MAIDEN ANNOUNCE NEW STUDIO ALBUM
'THE FINAL FRONTIER' AND NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
IRON MAIDEN are pleased to announce that their forthcoming new studio album will be called ‘THE FINAL FRONTIER,’ and is expected be released late summer of this year.
The announcement comes with news of a North American Tour with Very Special Guests Dream Theater to open in Dallas, Texas, on June 9 and finish in Washington D.C. on July 20, making it MAIDEN’s most extensive North American tour in many years.
Following these shows in Canada and the U.S., The Final Frontier World Tour will travel back to Europe for a few selected major festival and stadium shows with the band planning to continue to many other countries in 2011 (full currently confirmed dates below).
The full Live Nation North America press release for the Canadian and U.S. dates is posted here.
An exclusive pre-sale allowing members of the IRON MAIDEN fan club first access to tickets to the North American MAIDEN Shows will be made available two days prior to them being available to the public. For full details go to www.ironmaiden.com
Tickets for the Canadian shows will go on sale to the public on Saturday, March 13 (12pm EST for Toronto and Montreal dates AND 10am LOCAL TIMES for the Western dates).
Tickets for the U.S. Shows will go on sale to the public on Saturday, March 20 at 10am EST.
As IRON MAIDEN are actively dedicated to ensuring their fans always have access to the best possible tickets at the fairest possible price, without being subject to scalping for good seats, so many North American shows will operate, at least in part, a paperless ticket policy. More information on Ticketmaster Paperless Ticketing can be found here.
To give IRON MAIDEN fan club members a privileged insight to their touring world, IMTV will return to www.ironmaiden.com to cover The Final Frontier World Tour. This exclusive footage includes regular footage from the live shows, touring, band interviews, insights into our crew and what they do and much much more. The website will also feature exclusive tour diaries, photographs and anything else that helps the fans get a real insight into the dynamics of a big tour.
