Iron Maiden announce UK tour for 2017!

Heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN have announced a UK tour for 2017!

The band, still continuing to tour their latest release, The Book of Souls, will tour the UK throughout May next year. Speaking about tour bassist Steve Harris says, “as it’s been so long since our last full UK arena tour, we really wanted to get to our fans in as many cities as possible. We’re really looking forward to it, especially visiting places we haven’t been to for a very long time like Leeds where we haven’t played since 2005 and Liverpool where we haven’t played since 1990. The whole band is really enjoying this tour and although we love playing festivals and stadiums, it is terrific to return to the intimacy and atmosphere of arenas. 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.”
