Following the massively successful global tour of 2016-17, in support of their 16th studio album The Book Of Souls, Iron Maiden will take to the road again next year. With a series of shows in Europe on the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour, they will stop at The O2 on Friday 10 August 2018.
The concept for the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour was inspired by Maiden’s mobile game and comic book of the same name and the stage set design will feature a number of different but interlocking “worlds” with a set list covering a large selection of Eighties material with a handful of surprises from later albums to add diversity.
Maiden manager Rod Smallwood explains further: “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.
Tickets are on sale Friday 24 November at 9am.
