The concept for the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour was inspired by Maiden’s mobile game and comic book of the same name and the stage set design will feature a number of different but interlocking “worlds” with a set list covering a large selection of Eighties material with a handful of surprises from later albums to add diversity.

Maiden manager Rod Smallwood explains further,

“As our fans know, we’ve been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce and Adrian re-joined Maiden at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with “History/Hits” tours. We enjoy working this way for many reasons, not least because it gives the band a chance to play both new material and the older favourites which we know fans like to hear. It keeps things fresh, not just for the fans but for the band too. 

“For this History/Hits tour we decided to base the theme around the Legacy Of The Beast name, which suits our purposes perfectly by giving us scope to get creative and have some fun, especially with Eddie! I don’t want to give too much away at the moment but we’re working on a number of different stage sets, all in keeping with the Maiden tradition and we hope to give our fans a fantastic experience when they come to see this very special show.”

 

Killswitch Engage will be Maiden’s Special Guest on headline European shows from May 26 to July 1 inclusive, and in the UK from July 31 to Aug 10 inclusive. Guests on other shows are currently being finalized and will be announced soon.

Most shows go on sale Friday 24th November, with some a little earlier - check the Tour Dates page for full info. 
As always, there will be an exclusive presale for Fan Club members, starting Monday 20th.

These guys should REALLY consider retiring some songs. I know I know, not gonna happen. But they have soooo many classics, they could give a rest to some, starting with FOTD (again, never gonna happen).

Still not happy. When are they going to get Di'Annio back and play Killers in full?

Tough being a Maiden fan...

I love Di'Annos Maiden albums but after seeing few videos on youtube in last coupke of years probably wouldn't soind good in that arangement...But Blaze on the other hand.... as years go by his voice sound better and better...

So I've finally settled on doing Tallinn, Helsinki, Stockholm, Trondheim, Copenhagen, Athens, Plovdiv, Zagreb, Krakow, Newcastle, Belfast, Aberdeen, Manchester, Birmingham, and London. So far I've got my tickets for Tallinn, Helsinki, Stockholm, Krakow, and London. The rest will have to wait as I'm on holiday right now. 

 

For anyone wondering, second nights in Helsinki, Paris, London, and maybe Krakow are likely.
