IRON MAIDEN, having just released their 'Book of Souls' live recordings (CD and free-streaming video) are already setting their sights on their next project--getting back on the road in 2018 for what they are calling the 'Legacy of the Beast' European Tour. (see tour dates below) Tickets for the European dates, which start in late May and conclude the 2nd week in August, are expected to go on sale November 24th (Fan Club members can purchase as early as Nov. 20th), and Maiden Fans can visit the band's website for further info. The 'Legacy of the Beast' tour moniker is derived from Maiden's video game and comic book of the same name, and the shows are expected to feature some of the heritage metal band's 1980's-era fan favorites and a 'handful of surprises' from the band's more recent output. After so many years of recording and touring, how does IRON MAIDEN keep it interesting for themselves? According to their manager Rod Smallwood, the band rather enjoys switching up their performance options, choosing to alternate between touring behind new album releases, and to revisit some of their past, classic recordings. Mr. Smallwood said, "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." Maiden's manager went on to say that he didn't "want to give too much away" but hinted, "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." Rock On, Iron Maiden!
