Iron Maiden will be bringing a new tour to Europe in the Summer of 2023 including arena shows in the UK & Ireland.
The Future Past Tour will feature previously unperformed songs from the band’s most recent studio album, Senjutsu along with a focus on 1986’s iconic Somewhere In Time record, plus other classic cuts.
Tickets go on sale from Friday 14 October at 9am via LiveNation.co.uk and as always there will be an exclusive pre-sale for Iron Maiden fanclub members.
Founding member and bassist Steve Harris,
“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 3 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). 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”.
The band are currently in North America in the final stages of their spectacular Legacy Of The Beast World Tour, interrupted for two years by Covid with many shows rescheduled twice.
The tour actually started in Tallin, Estonia in May 2018, the first of 139 shows in 33 countries.
By the last show in Tampa, Florida on Oct 27 this year the band will have played to over Three Million fans on this epic world tour.
