Iron Maiden Unveils 2022 Dates for American “Legacy of the Beast” Tour

On Wednesday (Dec. 1), the legendary rock band Iron Maiden unveiled the dates for the American leg of their “Legacy of the Beast” tour, slated to bring the British metal icons to stadiums across the globe. The state-side run of shows is set to kick off with a show in El Paso, Texas on September 11, 2022, and will wrap up with an October 27 date in Tampa, Florida.

“Next summer, we will finally get to play the huge European stadium and festival tour for Legacy of the Beast originally set for 2020,” the band’s manager, Rod Smallwood, said in a statement. “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.”

Known for beloved classics like “The Trooper,” “Run To The Hills,” “Fear of the Dark” and more, any promise of hearing the “hits” will surely pique the interests of countless fans around the world… and, accordingly, the band is set to do some international dates too, including a string of shows in Eastern Europe and one in Mexico (with a special, yet-to-be-announced guest). 

For his part, lead singer Bruce Dickinson added: “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. The whole band has really enjoyed the Legacy tour and now we just can’t wait to get back out on the road to play live, have fun and see everyone again.”
