Iron Maiden to Forge Ahead with More Tour Dates Next Year


The unstoppable force that is Iron Maiden’s tour schedule continues moving forward, age be damned. More than a year after the release of Senjutsu, the legendary six-piece band plan to continue supporting the album with even more dates into 2023. The announcement came as the band still has another three weeks left on its current run through the U.S.

Bassist Steve Harris said in a press release that the new slate of dates are specifically made to reflect the new album, with more of a focus on the new songs, as well as a revisit to awesome 1986 album Somewhere in Time, than current setlist does for the Legacy of the Beast tour.

“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!!). 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.”
