Earlier this week, British metal greats Iron Maiden announced the North American dates of their Maiden England World Tour.

This 29-stop trek (with more dates to be announced) will mimic the live concert VHS Maiden England, shot in November 1988 when the band was touring on the album Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. The set list will likely include most or all of the following Maiden classics:

  • Moonchild
  • The Evil That Men Do
  • The Prisoner
  • Still Life
  • Die With Your Boots On
  • Infinite Dreams
  • Killers
  • Can I Play With Madness?
  • Heaven Can Wait
  • Wasted Years
  • The Clairvoyant
  • Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
  • The Number Of The Beast
  • Hallowed Be Thy Name
  • Iron Maiden

Lead singer Bruce Dickinson commented in the press release, “Our intention is to play about two thirds of the original track list of Maiden England, including some songs we have not played live in a very, very long time.”

Shock rocker Alice Cooper will open for Maiden on all shows up to July 21, at which time he will separately tours Europe. After July 21, Maiden will be accompanied by Coheed and Cambria.

Tickets for most shows go on sale March 2 and 3. When possible, the band will sell paperless tickets to counter scalping efforts.
