Don’t fret, North America! “The Legacy of the Beast” is coming your way in the fall of 2022 as Iron Maiden have just announced a North American leg for their world tour.
This latest leg of shows will hit certain cities that the band has not performed in for many years, making this a treat for Iron Maiden fans hungry for a show, and given that it’s a “Legacy of the Beast” show, these fans will be getting a decades-spanning set list that includes classic cuts as well as songs form their latest Senjutsu studio album.
Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood comments, “Next summer we will finally get to play the huge European stadium tour for The Legacy Of The Beast, and the new show will be even more spectacular so after our visit to Rock in Rio early September 2022 we decided to take it back to our fans in North America too, but in cities or venues we didn’t play in 2019, including some we haven’t visited in many years like El Paso, Spokane, Sioux Falls, Columbus, Hamilton, Ottawa and Greensboro.”
He adds, “We’ll be making a couple of additions and changes to the production and setlist to include some songs from our new album Senjutsu and are making the 2022 version of Legacy of the Beast even more spectacular than the acclaimed original show. You can be sure that we will still be featuring all the ‘hits’ and the key elements of the original tour like the Spitfire, Icarus, Hell, flamethrowers and pyro and the rest – but we will shake it up a bit and Trooper Eddie will have serious competition in the new Senjutsu ‘world’ we are adding.”
Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson adds, “We’re really looking forward to our return to North America so we can bring The Legacy of the Beast show to places we didn’t get to in 2019 and to other cities we’ve not played for many years. I’m really excited about the new additions and changes to the stage production and we can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve got planned. The whole band has really enjoyed the Legacy Tour and now we just can’t wait get back out on the road to play live, have fun and see everyone again!”
Maiden will also bring along Trivium on all dates between the El Paso tour opener on Sept. 11 and Spokane on Sept. 30, at which point Within Temptation will take over the opening spot for the remaining October shows. Check out the full list of dates, cities and venues listed below.
