Within Temptation are the latest band to be added to the support line up for Iron Maiden’s Twickenham show in July.

Avenged Sevenfold will also play with Maiden on July 5.

Within Temptation lead singer Sharon den Adel says: "Everyone in the band is a big Iron Maiden fan and the previous times we played with them have been an amazing experience. We are very honoured to play with Maiden in such an amazing stadium! It'll definitely be a night to remember!”

The Maiden tour this year is marking the release of the ‘Somewhere In Time’ DVD, which is currently sitting at number 1 in the UK music DVD chart.

In its first week of release it outsold the nearest challenge by 3 to 1, and more than the rest of the top 6 put together.
