The legendary metal band was forced to halt their career-spanning “Legacy of the Beast” trek last year due the pandemic. As consolation, Iron Maiden instead offered up a live album recorded in Mexico City during the initial run in September 2019.
The metal legends will finally re-commence the tour in 2022, adding 30 shows to their previously announced European run, including a brand-new North American route and a handful of additional European dates.
Tickets go on sale December 10th at 10:00 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster. Registration for first access to tickets is open now via Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform and will run through December 5th, with a pre-sale following on December 7th.
The North American leg of the 2022 tour will kick off on September 7th in Mexico City, reprising the location of the aforementioned live album concert. From there, Iron Maiden will travel to the US and hit the road with Trivium beginning September 11th in El Paso, Texas. Trivium will remain on the outing through September 30th in Spokane, Washington.
Within Temptation will take over support duties for dates beginning October 3rd in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, running through October 27th in Tampa, Florida — the final date of Iron Maiden’s North American leg.
Prior to that run, Maiden will make their way across Europe for previously rescheduled “Legacy of the Beast” concerts. An additional six dates have been added in Croatia (May 22nd), Serbia (May 24th), Romania (May 26th), Ukraine (May 29th), Bulgaria (July 13th), and Greece (July 16th).
