News just in! Iron Maiden has announced UK and Ireland headline dates as part of their The Future Past Tour 2023. The band will promote their most recent studio album Senjutsu while also playing selections from their sixth studio album, 1986’s Somewhere in Time.
“Following the release of our latest album, Senjutsu, we updated the current Legacy of the Beast Tour a little by opening the show with the first three songs from it, with the Japanese Palace stage set. As it doesn’t make a lot of sense to repeat this for a Senjutsu album tour, we thought about other options and we’ve decided to revisit Somewhere In Time as that tour didn’t feature in the various retrospective history tours we’ve played over the years. They were based on our 80’s concert videos and sadly we did not film that tour (blame the manager!!),” comments founding member and bassist Steve Harris. “We have had lots of requests from fans over the years for many tracks on it so we are now going to play them, plus of course a few others we know you will like! It will also be particularly satisfying to finally get to play some of the more epic tracks on Senjutsu, it’s been a long wait! 2023 is going to be an exciting time and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone again in the UK, Ireland and around Europe”.
The band will perform live in the United Kingdom and Ireland as follows:
Sat 24th – DUBLIN – 3 Arena
Mon 26th – GLASGOW – OVO Hydro
Wed 28th – LEEDS – First Direct Arena
Fri 30th – MANCHESTER – AO Arena
Mon 3rd – NOTTINGHAM – Motorpoint Arena
Tue 4th – BIRMINGHAM – Utilita Arena
Fri 7th – LONDON – O2 Arena
So, if you’re looking for an excuse to rock out next summer, look no further than the mighty Iron Maiden, and get your tickets for what promises to be an unforgettable tour from one of the most iconic metal bands of all time. See you in the mosh pit!
