IRON MAIDEN have announced a headlining European tour!
Scheduled for June and July next year, the tour will see NWOBHM legends touring across mainland Europe and the UK. The tour, titled The Future Past Tourwill see the band performing excerpts from their latest studio album, senjutsualongside a focus on the 1986 classic somewhere in timeas well as other classic cuts.
Tickets for the tour will be available from Friday, October 14 at 9:00 a.m. and can be purchased here.
Speaking of the tour, bassist Steve Harris said, “Following the release of our latest album, senjutsuwe updated the current Legacy of the Beast Tour a bit by opening the show with the first three songs of it, with the Japanese Palace staging. Since it doesn’t make much sense to repeat this for a senjutsu album tour, we thought of other options and decided to revisit somewhere in time as this tour was not on the various historical retrospective tours we have played over the years. They were based on our 80’s concert videos and unfortunately we didn’t film this tour (blame the manager!!). We’ve had many fan requests over the years for many tracks, so we’ll be playing them, plus of course a few more that we know you’ll like! It will also be particularly satisfying to finally be able to play some of the most epic tracks of senjutsu, the wait was long! 2023 is going to be an exciting time and we really can’t wait to see everyone back in the UK, Ireland and across Europe.
Administrator, Rod Little wood adds, “This combination of the two albums sounds very exciting to us. We know fans want to hear those epic cuts on senjutsu for the first time live and we think that combining it with an iconic album like somewhere in time this will make another really special tour for fans old and new! Of course, for a new album tour in Europe and the UK, we will largely return to the relative privacy of the arenas and we know the fans will be very happy about that too!”
