Iron Maiden Announces 2018 European Tour

Iron Maiden

There’s not end in sight for the beast they call Iron Maiden, as the band is gearing up to set sail on a new tour of Europe in 2018 following a very successful tour in support of their latest studio album, “Book Of Souls.” The newly announced tour entitled “Legacy of The Beast” World Tour, will kick things off in May, wrapping around various parts of Europe before making its way to the states.

With a new mobile game out as well, Iron Maiden is on a frenzy of success off the stage. The new tour was inspired by both the new game, as well as their new comic book.

“As our fans know, we’ve been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce [Dickinson, vocals] and Adrian [Smith, guitar] rejoined 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,” said Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood.

“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.”

Joining Iron Maiden on this epic voyage will be heavy metal hitters, Killswitch Engage on a small line of European dates as their special guests. More bands to be announced as guests will be announced for the remaining tour dates.
