After a hugely successful European run, Iron Maiden will be taking their Legacy of the Beast tour to the Americas in 2019. The tour will kick off in Sunrise, Florida, next summer and wrap up in Santiago, Chile, in October.

The production, which the band describes as their most elaborate thus far, is inspired by the Legacy of the Beast mobile game they released in 2016. Just as players navigate the game world as Eddie, a playable character, Iron Maiden will take their fans on a similar epic journey during the show.

“It is not that easy designing the different Maiden Worlds on stage, and we put a huge amount of work into this to make it work and the end result we feel is our most spectacular and certainly the most complex show to date,” frontman Bruce Dickinson said in a statement.

“We’ve got all kinds of crazy things going on, including a replica Spitfire plane dominating the stage during ‘Aces High’, tons of pyro, a giant Icarus, muskets, claymores and some truly marvellous flame-throwers which I have a hell of a lot of fun with, as you will see!”

Bassist Steve Harris also adds that the setlist was carefully tailored for the show. “We feel we ended up with a very strong and well balanced set mixing songs we haven’t played in many years like Flight Of Icarus, Sign Of The Cross and The Clansman with songs we know the fans want to hear like The Trooper, 2 Minutes To Midnight, The Number Of The Beast, Fear Of The Dark, Run To The Hills, Hallowed Be Thy Name and others, reflecting the journey through the different themes of the show,” he said.
