Iron Maiden Bring “Maiden England” Tour To North America

Finally some tour news we are excited about. Iron Maiden has just announced details for their North American Summer Tour. Dubbed the “Maiden England” tour, the band plans to recreate their 1988 Seventh Son of a Seventh Son concert film.

When asked about the trek (which kicks off June 21st in Charlotte, NC) Iron Maiden front man (and commercial pilot) Bruce Dickinson had the following to say:

“Our intention is to play about two thirds of the original track list of ‘Maiden England’, including some songs we have not played live in a very,very long time, plus other favourites we just know the fans are going to want to hear! We always try to give our fans a great show musically, but we have always tried to make it as entertaining and memorable an experience as we can visually. And we all feel this show is going to do that splendidly!”

Tickets for the tour go on sale in early March. Alice Cooper will be opening for all dates until July 19. Coheed and Cambria will be opening for dates after July 19.
