IRON MAIDEN are about to return to European arenas with their 2016 magnum opus, The Book Of Souls. The tour kicks off at the Sportpalais in Antwerp, Belgium before the British heavy metal icons play four shows in Germany, followed by dates in Ireland and the UK. Due to the huge demand, an additional show was scheduled in Oberhausen, Germany for 25 April.
Says IRON MAIDENís Steve Harris: ďAs itís been so long since our last full UK arena tour, we really wanted to get to our fans in as many cities as possible. Weíre really looking forward to it, especially visiting places we havenít been to for a very long time like Leeds where we havenít played since 2005 and Liverpool where we havenít played since 1990. The whole band is really enjoying this tour and although we love playing festivals and stadiums, it is terrific to return to the intimacy and atmosphere of arenas. The songs from The Book Of Souls album and the new Maya-themed Eddie and stage sets have gone down really well and fan reaction has been amazing. And of course we know our fans appreciate us playing a lot of the older songs too, which we will continue to do.Ē
