have announced their next world tour, starting with a huge set of US dates.
The "Maiden England
" US tour will kick off in June and end in August after 28 performances, before continuing around the world.
It will mirror the original 1988 concert video of the same name, in terms of production and content, making it a must-see for any Maiden fan.
"We have great fun playing the History of Maiden Tours because it gives us an opportunity between new albums to go out and play songs from our earlier catalog,
" said Bruce Dickinson
in a statement on their website
"Our intention is to play about two thirds of the original track list of 'Maiden England' including some songs we have not played live in a very, very long time, plus other favorites we just know the fans are going to want to hear!
The band are keen to avoid fans being scammed by ticket touts, so they will arrange a paperless ticket system for at least the front section to avoid fans paying inflated prices.
