Iron Maiden has long been regarded as one of the best metal bands of all time, and they don’t want any of their fans to miss out on the chance to see them live. Earlier this year, they began a major world tour in support of their 16th album, The Book of Souls. The tour visited 36 countries, but that wasn’t enough for the "The Number Of The Beast" group; they just announced another European leg beginning in 2017. Shinedown will be supporting them for 16 live shows no rock music fan will want to miss.
The European leg of Iron Maiden’s Book of Souls World Tour will give them a chance to visit cities that haven’t hosted them in years. The tour will kick off in Antwerp, Belgium on April 22, 2017, where Iron Maiden hasn’t performed since 1981. They’ll also be playing three shows in Germany before embarking on their first full UK arena tour in six years — making a point to stop at as many cities as possible so that no fan has to miss out.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, September 30 following an exclusive presale for members of the Iron Maiden Fan Club. Details of the presale can be found on the band's official website. A Trooper VIP package will also be available, allowing fans to have early access to the venue, as well as exclusive goodies, prizes, food, and beer. VIP tickets must be purchased separately from concert tickets, but trust us, it's a really amazing way to experience Iron Maiden live.
