Iron maiden announce European tour including London O2 Arena gig: how to get tickets and full UK tour dates

The band North America in the final stages of their Legacy Of The Beast World Tour

Rock band Iron Maiden have announced a brand new European tour including a string of dates in the UK, with one show in London.

The tour, named The Future Past Tour, will feature previously unperformed songs from the band’s most recent studio album, Senjutsu along with a focus on 1986’s iconic Somewhere In Time record, plus other classic cuts.

Bassist Steve Harris said “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 3 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”.

    Their UK leg of the tour culminates in the capital, where the band will perform at the O2 Arena in London on July 7 2023.
