It's our pleasure to see the return of Iron Maiden to the live stage and one of the coolest benefits of joining the Iron Maiden Fan Club – the legendary First to the Barrier draw in which Iron Maiden give you the chance to win early-access to select venues so you can get front and centre for the action.
First to the Barrier is a privilege though, and to see it continued we'll need everyone's courtesy and cooperation. On show days, those venues are Iron Maiden's house and we are their guests. So please carefully read the official policy below before entering the draw.
Good luck to all of you who are entering, and...
UP THE IRONS!
The Iron Maiden Fan Club
First To The Barrier (FTTB) is an Iron Maiden Fan Club benefit open to all members. It is your opportunity to bag a spot right at the front of the barrier for any shows for which you have bought standing tickets, along with one guest of your choice.
The FTTB draw is usually over-subscribed for each show, meaning an FTTB application does not automatically guarantee a place. Selection of successful applicants is therefore made at random. Successful FTTB applicants are informed via email and will receive details of where and when to meet at the show, where they are able enter the venue prior to the rest of the audience.
It should be noted that we will be enforcing a strict zero tolerance policy concerning any potential abuse of the system or unacceptable behaviour or harassment towards either the IMFC, Iron Maiden tour staff, or venue staff. Any IMFC members in contravention of this policy will be asked to leave the show and will receive a lifetime ban from the IMFC.
Also, please understand that this is just early entry - there is no 'golden circle', there is no holding your space at the front - you grab your spot and it's up to you to keep it.
Ensure you are logged in to your IMFC online account. Click on the entry button further down the page and go through the steps, add to basket and check out. Don't worry, FTTB is free, we're just using the store's ticketing system for the draw entries.
You'll get an email confirming that you're in the draw. Then you just need to wait...
We'll send an email out to winners 5 days before the show date to let them know they've won, and then a further mail with details specific to that gig. Please make sure you've whitelisted our no-reply mailer address - email@example.com - so we don't go to spam!
