Iron Maiden To Tour the US This Summer!
British Metal legends Iron Maiden announced on Wednesday a new summer tour based on the music from the Maiden England era. The MAIDEN ENGLAND WORLD TOUR marks the third themed tour for the metal giants.
The first installment was named The Early Days Tour (2005) which featured songs from their first three albums: Iron Maiden, Killers, and The Number of the Beast. The second tour, named Somewhere Back In Time World Tour (2008-2009), featured a stage similar to their World Slavery Tour 1984, and songs from the post-Beast era albums Piece Of Mind, Powerslave, and Somewhere In Time. For this second tour, they chartered a jumbo jet which they named “Ed Force One” to transport crew and gear through their different destinations. The aircraft’s captain was none other than lead singer Bruce Dickinson.
There are good news for us New Englanders. Iron Maiden will play the Comcast Center in Boston, MA on Tuesday, June 26th. Other non-New England dates nearby include Wednesday, June 27th at Jones Beach in Wantagh, NY, and Monday, July 2nd at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.
