Iron Maiden to play Dublin as part of The Book of Souls World Tour
Rock legends Iron Maiden continue their hugely successful The Book of Souls World Tour into 2017 with a date in Dublin.
Their series of European arena shows open in Antwerp, Belgium on April 22 - Maiden’s first visit to this city since 1981 on the Killers Tour.
The band then travel to Germany for shows in Oberhausen, Frankfurt and Hamburg before heading into the UK and Ireland for an extensive series of concerts in May including a return to Dublin, their first visit there in seven years, for a date at the 3Arena on May 6.
Maiden founder member and bass player Steve Harris said: “The whole band is really enjoying this tour and though we love playing festivals and stadiums, it is terrific to return to the intimacy and atmosphere of arenas for a few shows.
"The songs from The Book Of Souls album and the new Maya-themed Eddies and stage sets have gone down really well and fan reaction has been amazing. And of course we know our fans appreciate us playing a lot of the older songs too, which we will continue to do. “
