The reason why Entombed are doing Scandinavia is a) they are also handled by Sanctuary, and b) they are from Sweden. Maiden do not need for a supporting act to bring in people in Europa where they're huge, but the US is another story. Halford is also now managed by Sanctuary, which is why he'll get the US leg. With tours on that level it's all about keeping it in the family, bands sharing either mgmt, a record company and/or a booking agent. Which is exactly why second-tier bands from Stratovarius to Iced Earth to Ten will never get to go on tour with a bigger bands - at least not outside of Europe. Unless you move up from indie land and can start dealing with the major players, you'll be stuck in indie land forever doing clubs and playing for basically the same audience everytime out...
