Iron Maiden Announce 2022 World Tour

British heavy metal rock icons Iron Maiden has announced the Legacy of the Beast World Tour that will bring the Grammy Award-winning rockers stateside for a two-month autumn tour. This follows their 29-stop European leg of the tour from May through July.

The North American leg of the tour will take the legendary rock band through 24 arenas and amphitheaters in September and October of 2022. Providing support for the first month of the tour is Trivium, and Within Temptation will follow on the final month of the tour. They will be kicking it off in Mexico City on September 7 before heading to El Paso for the U.S. tour opener on September 11. They will play one South American date in Rio de Janeiro September 2.

“I’m really excited about the new additions to the stage production, and we can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve got planned.” – Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson.

Iron Maiden have announced that they will in part be promoting the band’s latest works, including their new album Senjutsu released in September.

Fans can expect an extraordinary show according to manager Rod Smallwood.

We’ll be making a couple of additions and changes to the production and setlist to include some songs from our new album Senjutsu and are making the 2022 version of Legacy Of The Beast even more spectacular than the acclaimed original show. You can be sure that we will still be featuring all the “hits” and the key elements of the original tour like the Spitfire, Icarus, Hell, flamethrowers, and pyro and the rest – but we will shake it up a bit, and Trooper Eddie will have serious competition in the new Senjutsu ‘world’ we are adding.”

Iron Maiden were formed in 1975 by bassist and only remaining original member Steve Harris. The band consists of Harris (bass, backing vocals, keyboards), Dave Murray (guitar), Adrian Smith (guitar, backing vocals, keyboards), Bruce Dickinson (lead vocals, piano), Niko McBrain (drums), and Janick Gers (guitar). The band has been nominated for five Grammy Awards, winning their first golden gramophone in 2011 for Best Metal Performance of “El Dorado” from the band’s 2010 LP The Final Frontier. Since the band’s formation, its discography has grown to 41 albums, including 17 studio albums, 13 live albums, four EPs, and seven compilations. They have also released 47 singles and 20 video albums.

“Next summer we will finally get to play the huge European stadium tour for The Legacy Of The Beast, and the new show will be even more spectacular, so after our visit to Rock in Rio early September 2022 we decided to take it back to our fans in North America too, but in cities or venues we didn’t play in 2019, including some we haven’t visited in many years like El Paso, Spokane, Sioux Falls, Columbus, Hamilton, Ottawa and Greensboro,” said Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood.

There will be an exclusive pre-sale for Iron Maiden fan club members beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, December 7. All presales end at 10 p.m. December 9.

The 2022 tour produced by Live Nation is being hailed as visually spectacular with a decades-spanning setlist also including songs from their new studio album Senjutsu being played live for the first time.
