Following their global tour of 2016-17 in support of their 16th studio album, The Book of Souls, Iron Maiden will take to the road again in 2018 with a series of arena and festival shows in Europe on the “Legacy of the Beast World Tour,” opening in Tallinn, Estonia, on May 26 and finishing at the O2 Arena, London, on August 10. The full list of dates is below and the tour is expected to continue in 2019.

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 ’80s 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 favorites 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.”

Most shows go on sale Nov. 24, with some a little earlier. Check the Tour Dates page for full info.
