Iron Maiden have announced dates for a spring tour of Latin and South America in support of their latest album, “The Book Of Souls.”
The 12-date run starts in Monterrey, Mexico on March 1 and will hit 6 countries including El Salvador, Costa Rica, Chile, Argentina and Brazil.
Anthrax (except El Salvador) and The Raven Age will open the shows.
The band have previously revealed spring dates for the US
and April concerts in Australia and New Zealand as part of a world tour for their 16th album release.
“The Book Of Souls” recently landed Iron Maiden a US Top 5 debut on the Billboard 200, entering the chart at No. 4 with opening week sales of 75,000 copies.
The tally scores the band’s best US sales week since Nielsen Music started tracking sales in 1991 and the showing equals Iron Maiden’s best chart ranking ever – matching the No. 4 placement of 2010’s “The Final Frontier.”
“The Book Of Souls” was recorded in Paris in 2014 and produced by Kevin Shirley.
The set was launched with the project’s lead single, “Speed Of Light.”
