Ontario Iron Maiden fans need to circle October 11 (Toronto), October 12 (Hamilton) and October 15 (Ottawa) to catch what the band is touting as their most ambitious production to date as The Legacy Of The Beast World Tour completes a global itinerary that was initially launched in 2019 but now allows them to perform new tracks off their Senjutsu release for the first time.
They will return to North America in 2022 to bring The Legacy Of The Beast World Tour to yet more cities, many of which the band has not performed in for many years. The show has already been seen by almost two million people across the globe, being hailed by fans and media alike as the most extravagant and visually spectacular performance of the band’s career to date, with a decades-spanning set list of fan favourites. The 2022 tour produced by Live Nation will also include some songs from their new studio album Senjutsu being played live for the first time.
Very Special Guests on the 2022 dates will be Trivium on all dates between El Paso and Spokane, and then Within Temptation on all dates from Sioux Falls to Tampa.
Registration for first access to tickets is open now via Ticketmaster’s
Verified Fan platform and will run through 10:00 PM ET on December 5th.
Verified Fan presale begins Wednesday, December 8th at 10 AM local.
As always there will be an exclusive pre-sale for IRON MAIDEN fan club members beginning
Tuesday, December 7th at 10 AM local. All presales end Thursday, December 9th at 10 PM local.
Any remaining tickets will go on sale on December 10th at 10 AM local time.
Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood comments, “Next summer we will finally get to play the huge European stadium tour for The Legacy Of The Beast, and the new show will be even more spectacular so after our visit to Rock in Rio early September 2022 we decided to take it back to our fans in North America too, but in cities or venues, we didn’t play in 2019, including some we haven’t visited in many years like El Paso, Spokane, Sioux Falls, Columbus, Hamilton, Ottawa and Greensboro.
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.”
Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson adds, “We’re really looking forward to our return to North America so we can bring The Legacy Of The Beast show to places we didn’t get to in 2019 and to other cities we’ve not played for many years. I’m really excited about the new additions and changes 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!”
The Legacy Of The Beast Tour production and setlist is inspired by Maiden’s award-winning free to play mobile game of the same name which is available on iOS and Android platforms at www.ironmaiden.com/play
