Rejoice, Iron Maiden fans! The metal legends will return to North America for a new run of dates on their “Legacy of the Beast Tour” beginning in July, and the band is promising its “biggest production ever.”

The arena and amphitheater tour kicks off July 18th in Sunrise, Florida, and runs through a September 25th show in San Antonio, Texas. It follows the band’s European trek, which played to sold-out venues this past summer. A full itinerary is listed below.

Singer Bruce Dickinson commented, “We’re excited to return to North America and share the ‘Legacy Of The Beast Tour’ with all our friends there! We’re immensely proud of this show and we’ve had great reactions from the many fans who came to see us in Europe earlier this year. The production is based on our mobile game THE LEGACY OF THE BEAST, which basically takes various incarnations of Eddie into many different Maiden Worlds. This inspired us to put together a stage show to take our fans through different Worlds and experiences set to appropriate songs.”

Bassist Steve Harris added, “We gave a lot of thought to the set list for this Tour as the songs needed to follow the narrative of the changing worlds of the stage show. We feel we ended up with a very strong and well balanced set mixing songs we haven’t played in many years like ‘Flight of Icarus’, ‘Sign of The Cross’ and ‘The Clansman’ with songs we know the fans want to hear like ‘The Trooper’, ‘2 Minutes to Midnight’, ‘The Number of The Beast’, ‘Fear of The Dark’, ‘Run to The Hills’, ‘Hallowed Be Thy Name’ and othersreflecting the journey through the different themes of the show.”

The Raven Age will serve as support, with Fozzy joining the bill for the Los Angeles show on September 14th. Tickets go on sale November 16th to the general public, with pre-sales starting earlier for fan club members. You can also secure tickets here.

Update 2/25/19: Iron Maiden have added a second show in Brooklyn, NY, for July 27th, and a third show in Mexico City on September 27th. See the updated itinerary below.
