The German leg will see MAIDEN also perform in Frankfurt and Hamburg before dates in Nottingham, Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds, Newcastle, Liverpool, Birmingham, London, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Cardiff and Dublin.
SHINEDOWN is providing support act on all sixteen dates.
Prior to the tour, IRON MAIDEN bassist Steve Harris said: “As it’s been so long since our last full U.K. arena tour, we really wanted to get to our fans in as many cities as possible. We’re really looking forward to it, especially visiting places we haven’t been to for a very long time, like Leeds, where we haven’t played since 2005, and Liverpool, where we haven’t played since 1990.
“The whole band is really enjoying this tour and although we love playing festivals and stadiums, it is terrific to return to the intimacy and atmosphere of arenas.
“The songs from ‘The Book Of Souls’ album and the new Maya-themed Eddies and stage sets have gone down really well and fan reaction has been amazing. And, of course, we know our fans appreciate us playing a lot of the older songs too, which we will continue to do.”
“The Book Of Souls” is MAIDEN‘s first ever double studio album and their most successful chart-wise to date, debuting at the No. 1 spot in over 40 countries around the world and No. 4 in the U.S.A.
IRON MAIDEN‘s “The Book Of Souls” world tour will return to North America for an extensive series of arena and amphitheater shows in June and July. Support on the trek will come from GHOST.
