Iron Maiden Announces Maiden England North American Tour

Iron Maiden

Iron Maiden will be taking North America by storm once again this summer with the Maiden England tour. The trek marks the third outing in the History of Iron Maiden tour series, and will closely mirror their original 1988 Maiden England concert video of the same name, by recreating the production and content.

Iron Maiden: Maiden England Tour 2012Vocalist Bruce Dickinson says the band enjoys the throwback tours.

“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,” he explains. “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! Our intention is to play about two thirds of the original track list of Maiden England, 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!”

The band, which is anchored by bassist Steve Harris, notes that this will be their most extensive visit to North America in several years and will be hitting cities they haven’t played in a very long time, including Charlotte, Atlanta, Buffalo, Indianapolis, and Salt Lake City.
