Iron Maiden announce Legacy Of The Beast North American tour

Iron Maiden have announced dates for the 2019 North American leg of The Legacy Of The Beast world tour.

Following this year’s opening series that saw them play a mix of sold-out stadiums, arenas and headline festival shows across Europe to over 750,000 fans, the veteran UK metal outfit will bring the production - inspired by their free to play mobile game of the same name – to the US and Canada for a 33-city trek that will open in Sunrise, FL on July 18.

The 2019 run will see Iron Maiden perform in several cities that they haven’t performed in years – including Portland, OR where they last played in 1987 and Hartford, CT, where they last hit in 2005 – and many other places not visited since the Maiden England 2012/13 Tour (see dates below).

“We’re excited to return to North America and share the Legacy Of The Beast Tour with all our friends there!,” says vocalist Bruce Dickinson. “We’re immensely proud of this show and we’ve had great reactions from the many fans who came to see us in Europe earlier this year. The production is based on our mobile game The Legacy Of The Beast which basically takes various incarnations of Eddie into many different Maiden Worlds. This inspired us to put together a stage show to take our fans through different Worlds and experiences set to appropriate songs.”

“It is not that easy designing different Worlds on stage,”
he continues, “and we put a huge amount of work into this to make it work and the end result we feel is our most spectacular and certainly the most complex show to date. We’ve got all kinds of crazy things going on, including a replica Spitfire plane dominating the stage during ‘Aces High,’ tons of pyro, a giant Icarus, muskets, claymores and some truly marvellous flame-throwers which I have a hell of a lot of fun with, as you will see! And of course we have Eddie, as you’ve never seen him before, and absolutely loads of other surprises.

“I’ve had the time of my life playing with all these magnificent props on stage, it’s been fantastic, we can’t wait to bring this show to you!”

An exclusive pre-sale for Iron Maiden fan club members starts Monday, November 12, with tickets going on sale to the general public beginning Friday, November 16 at 10 AM local time.
