Iron Maiden has added 2017 tour dates in Europe and the United Kingdom in support of their 2015 album, The Book Of Souls. The opening act for all shows will be Shinedown.
The newly announced concerts are scheduled to begin on April 22 in Belgium and wrap up on May 27 in London. This will be the first time Iron Maiden has visited the UK since The Final Frontier World Tour in 2011.
Bassist Steve Harris shared some comments about the upcoming tour on Iron Maiden's website:
As it’s been so long since our last full UK 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.
