Following the massively successful "Final Frontier World Tour
2010-11", Iron Maiden are back on the road this summer with a
series of arena, amphitheatre and festival shows in the USA and
Canada, opening in Charlotte, North Carolina on June 21 and
finishing in Houston, Texas on August 18, to be followed by further
dates around the world in 2013.
The "Maiden England World Tour" will closely mirror, in terms of
production and content, the original 1988 concert video of the same
name, shot on the "Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son Tour". This opening
section of the world tour is the band's most extensive visit to
North America for many years and includes a number of cities the
band have not played in a very long time, such as Charlotte,
Atlanta, Buffalo, Indianapolis and Salt Lake City.
Maiden will be joined by special guest Alice Cooper on shows to
July 21, and then Coheed and Cambria step in to open the second
half of the trip.
Maiden posted a video from rehearsals for the tour to give fans
a behind the scenes look at their preparations for Thursday's
launch. You can watch it below.
