IRON MAIDEN Announce UK/European Tour with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE

Maiden returns to their mother country

Maiden returns to their mother country

Just because Bruce Dickinson is out promoting his autobiography with the likes of Charlie Rose, doesn't mean that he's forgotten about his day gig. Today, Maiden announced a huge European tour for next summer with support from Killswitch Engage on most of the dates.

The band's manager, Rod Smallwood, shared this statement with the tour announcement:

“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.”
