I have the honour of performing Iron Maiden's Paschendale at the Tyne Cot Cemetery, on the 14th of October. This day the battle of Passchendaele will be exactly 100 years ago.
There are 12.000 graves at the Tyne Cot Cemetery, and 35.000 names of soldiers with no known grave, and we will perform in the middle of them, at an event called "Silent City Meets Living City". During a serene sound and light show, participants will illuminate the gravestones and the names on the Tyne Cot Memorial to bring a proper tribute.
If you want to be a part of this unique event, take a look at www.Passchendaele2017.org
