Iron Maiden will be touring across Europe and the UK in 2018! They’ll be joined by Killswitch Engage for a number of these shows. It will be known as the “Legacy Of The Beast Tour” in support of the Iron Maiden videogame of the same name (CLICK HERE to learn more about that). All the dates can be found below along with recent music from both bands.
The following statement was put out by Rod Smallwood, manager to the band:
“As our fans know, we’ve been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce and Adrian re-joined Maiden at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with ‘History/Hits’ tours.
We enjoy working this way for many reasons, not least because it gives the band a chance to play both new material and the older favourites which we know fans like to hear. It keeps things fresh, not just for the fans but for the band too.
For this History/Hits tour we decided to base the theme around the Legacy Of The Beast name, which suits our purposes perfectly by giving us scope to get creative and have some fun, especially with Eddie!
I don’t want to give too much away at the moment but we’re working on a number of different stage sets, all in keeping with the Maiden tradition and we hope to give our fans a fantastic experience when they come to see this very special show.”
