Iron Maiden fans, rejoice! The metal legends have just announced their 'The Future Past' tour, which will kick off in June of 2023. The tour will see the band performing across Europe and the U.K. with a hometown gig in London on 7th July. The band will play tracks from their newest album 'Senjutsu' from 2021. Iron Maiden said they will also throw in favourites from their 1986 album 'Somewhere in Time'.
In a statement by the band, bassist Steve Harris said "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,"
He adds "They were based on our '80s concert videos and sadly we did not film that tour. 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!"
Iron Maiden's band manager - Rodd Smallwood said "This combination of the two albums we feel is very exciting. We know fans want to hear those epic cuts on Senjutsu for the first time live, and we think that by combining it with an iconic album like Somewhere in Time it will make for another really special tour for fans old and new!"
Tickets for the tour go on sale on 13th October. Tour dates are below
