"Following the massively successful Final Frontier World Tour 2010-11, IRON MAIDEN are back on the road this summer with a series of Arena, Amphitheatre and Festival shows in the U.S.A. and Canada, opening in Charlotte, NC, U.S.A. on June 21, and finishing in Houston, TX, on Aug 18 (dates listed below), to be followed by further dates around the World in 2013. The MAIDEN ENGLAND WORLD TOUR will closely mirror, in terms of production and content, the original 1988 concert video of the same name, shot on the “Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son Tour”. This opening section of the World Tour is the band’s most extensive visit to North America for many years and includes a number of cities the band have not played in a very long time, such as Charlotte, Atlanta, Buffalo, Indianapolis and Salt Lake City.

In most venues, tickets will go on sale on March 2 and 3 but watch this site or check local venue information for fuller details. Fan Club members should check out ironmaiden.com for exclusive first day ticket presales and contest to be ‘First To The Barrier’.

MAIDEN ENGLAND marks the third chapter in the History of Iron Maiden, a journey which began in 2004 with The Early Days DVD and subsequent 2005 Early Days Tour. Part Two followed in 2008 with the Live After Death DVD - the seminal 1984 concert recorded at Long Beach Arena (L.A) during the World Slavery Tour - and the band embarking on their groundbreaking Somewhere Back In Time World Tour 2008/9, which saw them play to over two million fans in almost 40 countries.

Comments vocalist Bruce Dickinson, “We have great fun playing the History of Maiden Tours because it gives us an opportunity between new albums to go out and play songs from our earlier catalogue. It’s always fantastic seeing the crowd reaction from a new generation of fans who have never experienced some of these tracks performed live before, and of course we know our longstanding fans will enjoy seeing the original Seventh Son Tour re-visited - with many other surprises! Our intention is to play about two thirds of the original track list of Maiden England (shown below*), 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! We can't wait to get started in Charlotte”.

Iron Maiden are delighted to announce that the extraordinary and legendary Alice Cooper will be their Very Special Guest on all shows up to July 21. After that date, Special Guest will be Coheed and Cambria, the inspiring, cutting edge band from New York.

Iron Maiden continue to be actively dedicated to ensuring their fans always have full access to the best possible tickets in the fairest possible way. Manager Rod Smallwood comments:

“We are trying to ensure that our fans get the tickets they want in the prime positions without paying over the odds to ticket scalpers. Maiden get infuriated with the way fans sometimes have to pay more than the ticket price to get good positions at our shows. So we will, wherever possible (Festivals excluded), with the assistance of the Promoters, arrange a paperless ticketing system at least for the front sections to try to eliminate as much of the ticket scalping and exchanges as we can. We put this into practice on our North American Tour in 2010; it worked well and we received many positive comments back from our fans, so we intend to increase this where feasible. With paperless ticketing, only those who actually pay initially for the tickets will get into the show so scalping is generally avoided (please see the comments from Ticketmaster below). We are also doing everything we can to avoid any drain of prime tickets going to the Secondary Ticketing sites which we feel make unfair profits from music fans.

As we consider all our fans to be VIPs, no tickets will be held specifically for VIP use. At some venues, the Promoter may provide the option for fans to pay extra for “VIP Parking”, early access, access to “VIP Bar” etc. But these will be purely optional for ticket holders only and will not be tied to ticket locations – the ability to get the best tickets should be the same for everybody outside of the usual presales.

Finally, we are of course once again arranging exclusive ticket pre-sales for our fan club members so they can be quick off the mark for great tickets and will also continue to run the contest in appropriate venues for fan club members so they can be ‘First To The Barrier’ prior to the show. We hope that these measures will help our fans as much as possible and ask that they keep checking for details on our website.”

TICKETMASTER comments:
Where possible the North American Iron Maiden shows will operate a paperless ticket policy. Select tickets will be sold via Ticketmaster’s Paperless Ticket delivery, which means fans will not receive a physical concert ticket for their entry into the event. Buying paperless helps ensure fans have secure and convenient access to event tickets at the intended original sale price. On the day of show, concert goers just need to bring the credit card they used for the ticket purchase and a government-issued photo ID to the concert. All members of the ticket purchaser's party must be present at the same time to enter the venue. The venue’s ticket usher will swipe their credit card upon entry and present each person in their party with seat locator slips for quick access into the show. To purchase paperless tickets or for more information, fans should visit www.ticketmaster.com/paperless or call the Ticketmaster charge-by-phone number at 1-800-745-3000.

Well then...everyone can be sure I'm plenty excited about this! :D I'm doing 8 gigs, which will bring me to 25 total (And 23 for Alice Cooper). Anyone else doing some shows? Which ones if so? I'm on board for Charlotte, Boston, Wantagh, Camden, Washington DC, Toronto, Sarnia, and Buffalo.

What is everyone expecting for a setlist then? There's been some rumblings that the band has discussed doing Seventh Son in it's entirety, which of course would lead to the first ever live performances of The Prophecy and Only The Good Die Young.

Ugh, I had hoped to see them at Graspop as the third headliner. Ah well, 2013 it is. As a GNR fan I am used to having patience.

Jul 24 :thumbsup:

I doubt they'd do SSOASS in its entirety, they'll still have to make room for Trooper, Iron Maiden, all the Beast standards etc...

If they are mirroring the Maiden England setlist, I'm pretty stoked to see them do Still Life live. It's been a while.


“To the ones who are negative and want to see either myself or the new band fall on their faces, personally I can’t pass up an opportunity to upset so many of them in one quick swoop. I get misty-eyed just thinking about it."

Include me in the meet up for Bayfest!

Not sure if they'll play SSOASS in its entirety, but really, they can't go wrong with that era, IMO. It's my favourite era of Maiden.

My favorite Maiden tour of all-time. I never got to see it, and now I can. This almost makes up for me missing out on Guns a few months ago. Best news I've received all year. :thumbsup:

In regards to Slash, I read a desperate fan's message about, what if one of us were to die and looking back I had the possibility of a reunion now, blah blah blah. And my thoughts are, "Yeah, and while you're at the show your baby accidentally kicks a candle and burns your house down, killing himself and the rest of your family."

Any idea on a range of prices?


Ticketmaster listing for the MI show states :

US $26.50 - US $92.00

US $26.50 Ticket + US $13.65 Fees = US $40.15
US $92.00 Ticket + US $15.05 Fees = US $107.05

edit: Any idea on a range of prices?

Setlist...I'm hoping something like this:
1. Moonchild (With the tape intro like '88, not the live intro like '08)
2. The Evil That Men Do
3. Die With Your Boots On
4. The Trooper
5. Wasted Years
6. Infinite Dreams
7. Still Life
8. Phantom Of The Opera
9. The Clairvoyant
10. Killers
11. Heaven Can Wait
12. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
13. Iron Maiden
-----
14. The Prisoner
15. Hallowed Be Thy Name
16. Running Free or Sanctuary

I'd like to see less of the regular hits in the setlist, primarily because the Maiden England tracklist allows them to do some really well-known songs they don't play live too often like Wasted Years, Infinite Dreams, Killers, Heaven Can Wait, and The Prisoner.

Any idea on a range of prices?


Ticketmaster listing for the MI show states :

US $26.50 - US $92.00

US $26.50 Ticket + US $13.65 Fees = US $40.15
US $92.00 Ticket + US $15.05 Fees = US $107.05

Seems pretty reasonable...a bit cheaper than most shows for Maiden/Dream Theater in 2010.

Ah, I 'd love to hear the Prisoner - it was my first favorite Maiden song. That drum intro gets me every time. Tickets seem not too bad either. Awesome.
