It has been announced that former Iron Maiden singer Paul Di’Anno will perform his “final ever” show on August 30 at the Beermageddon Festival in Bromsgrove, England, with the band Ides of March.
Blabbermouth reports that apart from Paul, the band features former Iron Maiden members Terry Wapram and Terry Rance on guitars, Doug Sampson on drums, and bassist Speed Harris of Hi-On Maiden.
Due to health issues, Di’Anno has been performing in a wheelchair in the past years and was advised by doctors to withdraw from the live stage.
He stated via press release:
“It’s been a tough four years waiting to play again. I hope to be standing for this show and I’m really looking forward to it. Standing up would be great. If not, Hell on wheels coming to ya!”
“Really looking forward to working with these guys. Our paths have crossed many times but we never played together. Should be a killer lineup and a very special night.”
