Iron Maiden announced their longest string of US dates in many years. The tour starts June 21 in Charlotte, N.C. and concludes in Houston, Texas on August 18. Alice Cooper will be support until July 21, and Rockland County’s own Coheed and Cambria will take over thereafter. Iron Maiden’s set will be arranged to mirror the Maiden England video in both song selection and production somewhat closely.
“We have great fun playing the History of Maiden Tours because it gives us an opportunity between new albums to go out and play songs from our earlier catalogue. It’s always fantastic seeing the crowd reaction from a new generation of fans who have never experienced some of these tracks performed live before, and of course we know our longstanding fans will enjoy seeing the original Seventh Son Tour re-visited – with many other surprises!” Said frontman Bruce Dickinson.
“Our intention is to play about two thirds of the original track list of Maiden England (shown below*), including some songs we have not played live in a very,very long time, plus other favourites we just know the fans are going to want to hear! We always try to give our fans a great show musically, but we have always tried to make it as entertaining and memorable an experience as we can visually. And we all feel this show is going to do that splendidly! We can’t wait to get started in Charlotte”.
The tour stops at Darien Lake in Buffalo on July 16th with Alice Cooper as support.
