Iron Maiden thank fans for support of The Legacy of The Beast Tour

Iron Maiden are thanking fans for their support of the band’s multi-year Legacy Of The Beast tour in a newly-released video package.

The series – which opened in the spring of 2018 – wrapped up on October 27 with the final date of a North American leg with a sold-out show in Tampa, FL.

“On behalf of the band, myself and all at Phantom, we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made this Legacy tour such a special and memorable experience,” says manager Rod Smallwood. “First and most importantly you, the fans, especially those affected by problems caused by the global pandemic which led to the 2020 European stadium shows having to be rescheduled not just once but twice!

“Your patience and good-will in holding on to your tickets and waiting until we could finally bring the Legacy show to you was very much appreciated. You truly are the best and playing to over 3 million of you over the extended tour was a hell of an achievement so thanks to each and every one of you for making this both possible and also making it incredible fun for the band who enjoyed pretty much every minute on stage.

“We’d also like to thank our brilliant touring Killer Krew - both the longstanding and newer members to the Maiden family, who never cease to rise to any challenges thrown their way - and there were a few - no mean feat considering this tour covered 33 countries and 139 shows played since we started in Tallinn way back on May 26 2018.”

In addition to thanking concert promoters and the artist who opened for Iron Maiden during the tour, Smallwood adds: “We are all now going to take a well-earned break and we’ll be back again next year with a great new show, The Future Past Tour playing just Europe this time as the 2022 Legacy tour was such a long run to enable us to see as many of you fans as possible post-pandemic. However, The Future Past Tour will continue into 2024 and who knows where it will go… so stay tuned!!"

The Future Past Tour is currently set to open in Tampere, Finland on June 3, 2023.
