VIDEO: Iron Maiden open Legacy Of The Beast tour in Florida

Iron Maiden are streaming a video package from opening night of the 2019 Legacy Of The Beast tour at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL on July 18.

The footage includes a behind the scenes look at the stage setup and rehearsals in the days leading up the official launch of the trek, which features production inspired by the band’s free-to-play mobile game of the same name.

According to The Sun-Sentinel, the group’s sold-out, two-hour, 16-song set drew from 10 Iron Maiden albums, including songs the band had not played in the US in decades.

“Thank you Fort Lauderdale... What a way to kick off a tour!,” said the band on social media.

The trek will see Iron Maiden release the third batch of records in their album reissue series.

A continuation of the veteran metal band’s remastered Studio Collection project – which saw 2014/2017’s black vinyl releases and 2015’s Mastered for iTunes project – the digipacks will present the track listing matching the original UK releases using audio taken from the same remasters as the 2015 hi-res digital releases.

Due July 26, the series will continue with 1992’s “Fear Of The Dark”, 1995’s “The X Factor”, 1998’s “Virtual XI” and 2000’s “Brave New World.”
