IRON MAIDEN Announces European Tour 2018

Written by Jovan Ristić

IRON MAIDEN have announced the dates for their upcoming 2018 European tour, set to start in May in Estonia and last all the way till August. The tour is called “Legacy of the Beast” and takes its name after the band’s mobile game of the same title. This means that the stage set will reflect the numerous Maiden-lore inspired worlds featured in the game. The tour is expected to continue in 2019.

Band’s manager Rod Smallwood comments: “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.”
