Iron Maiden announce US tour

Iron Maiden have announced dates for a spring US tour in support of their latest album, “The Book Of Souls.”

The band will launch the world tour with three US shows starting February 24 in Fort Lauderdale, FL before hitting Central America for dates in Mexico, El Salvador and Costa Rica. Shows in South America follow before a return to the States at the end of March for six more cities and and a two-week run across Canada.

A Fan Club presale for the US shows begins October 6 and general public tickets will go sale Saturday, October 10.

The group says: “Canadian fans please note that your dates will be announced very soon!”

The band have previously revealed dates for Australia and New Zealand starting in late April.

“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 group’s 16th album, “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.”
