Iron Maiden postpone Legacy Of The Beast European tour

Iron Maiden have postponed their planned European leg of The Legacy Of The Beast tour to 2022 “due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic restrictions on global live events and travel.”

Originally set to begin last year before being moved to this spring, the series will now open next June; all tickets for the band’s headlining shows remain valid.

Please note:

* The German Stuttgart 2022 show will now take place at the Cannstatter Wasen, not the Mercedes-Benz Arena, which is not available due to stadium reconstruction works. Tickets remain valid and ticket-holders will be notified by the local promoter/ticketing agency in due course.

* The Swiss show has reverted to Zurich Hallenstadion as was originally planned for 2020, as this venue is now available again for 2022. Therefore, there will be no rescheduled show for Basel St Jakobshalle (which never went on sale this year).

* Zurich along with Frankfurt, Arnhem and Belsonic will go on sale imminently.

The postponement of the Legacy Of The Beast Tour does however bring the good news that Maiden can now return to headlining the European festival dates initially planned for 2020 which were cancelled due to the pandemic; this includes Graspop in Belgium so therefore the own-show date in Antwerp (which had also not gone onsale) will no longer take place.

Furthermore, the band are in the process of finalizing a further couple of own-shows in other European territories and will provide and update as soon as they are confirmed.

“Naturally the band are hugely disappointed, a second summer without touring, especially with this very special Legacy show, is very hard to take,” says manager Rod Smallwood. “They send their best wishes to you all, knowing full well you fans will feel the same. As we all know, realistically there is no alternative so we will all make the best of it and spend the time preparing for a very memorable and even more spectacular Legacy tour next year, we promise! Until then keep safe and keep smart.”

Iron Maiden are among the nominees under consideration for induction into the 2021 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame; honorees will be announced in May ahead of a live ceremony in Cleveland, OH on October 30. Iron Maiden
