Iconic rockers Iron Maiden coming to Belfast's SSE Arena

Iron Maiden have announced dates for the European leg of their Legacy Of The Beast World Tour, which will include a date at Belfast's SSE Arena.

The iconic rockers' will kick off their European dates in Estonia before making their way to Belfast on Thursday, August 2 2018

Tickets are on sale from Friday, November 24 at 9am.

The concept for the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour was inspired by Maiden’s mobile game and comic book of the same name.

The tour's stage set design will feature a number of different but interlocking “worlds” with a set list covering a large selection of 80s material, as well as a handful of surprises from later albums.

Maiden manager Rod Smallwood said: “As our fans know, we’ve been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce and Adrian re-joined Maiden at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with “History/Hits” tours.

"We enjoy working this way for many reasons, not least because it gives the band a chance to play both new material and the older favourites which we know fans like to hear.

"It keeps things fresh, not just for the fans but for the band too."

Rod continued: “For this History/Hits tour we decided to base the theme around the Legacy Of The Beast name, which suits our purposes perfectly by giving us scope to get creative and have some fun, especially with Eddie!

"I don’t want to give too much away at the moment but we’re working on a number of different stage sets, all in keeping with the Maiden tradition and we hope to give our fans a fantastic experience when they come to see this very special show.”

Killswitch Engage will be Maiden’s special guest on headline European shows.
