MUSIC NEWS: Iron Maiden Announce UK and Ireland Headline Tour Dates
Iron Maiden have announced UK & Ireland headline dates as part of their The Future Past tour.
The band will be touring in support of their latest studio album Senjutsu whilst also showcasing their 1986 release Somewhere In Time.
“Following the release of our latest album, Senjutsu, we updated the current Legacy of the Beast Tour a little by opening the show with the first three songs from it, with the Japanese Palace stage set. As it doesn’t make a lot of sense to repeat this for a Senjutsu album tour, we thought about other options and we’ve decided to revisit Somewhere In Time as that tour didn’t feature in the various retrospective history tours we’ve played over the years. They were based on our 80’s concert videos and sadly we did not film that tour (blame the manager!!),” comments founding member and bassist Steve Harris. “We have had lots of requests from fans over the years for many tracks on it so we are now going to play them, plus of course a few others we know you will like! It will also be particularly satisfying to finally get to play some of the more epic tracks on Senjutsu, it’s been a long wait! 2023 is going to be an exciting time and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone again in the UK, Ireland and around Europe”.
