Iron Maiden, Slipknot + Black Label Society Members to Play Marshall’s 50th Birthday Bash

Marshall 50th Anniversary

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of iconic amplifier brand Marshall, the company has announced that they will be taking over London, England’s Wembley Arena on Sept. 22 for a massive concert. The show will feature performances by members of bands such as Iron Maiden, Slipknot, the Cult and Black Label Society.

Marshall have teamed up with Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain to put on the event, which promises to bring some of rock’s most legendary shredders into one venue.

“This is truly a celebration of a British icon – Marshall,” says McBrain, who will serve as emcee of the concert. “Beyond doubt, Jim Marshall and the team have shaped the sound of rock music for eternity! Words cannot describe how pioneering Marshall is! I feel more than privileged to be involved in this event. We’re bringing together beyond-legendary artists for a moment in history. Expect pure rock ‘n’ roll madness amplified to the max by Marshall!”

The musicians who will turn it up to 11 for the celebration include guitar virtuosos Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen and Zakk Wylde, along with Nicko McBrain, Mr. Big’s Paul Gilbert, Whitesnake’s Doug Aldrich and Brian Tichy, the Cult’s Billy Duffy and Slipknot / Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor.

The 50 Years of Loud celebration will take place at Wembley Arena on Sept. 22. Marshall also promises to add several more “big names” to the lineup.
