After teasing fans last week (which mind you became one of the biggest stories of the entire week in just 24 hours) Iron Maiden have finally unveiled their Legacy of the Beast Australian Tour dates for 2020 and you better believe it’s going to be one to remember, especially with Killswitch Engage on board!
Fans will be able to catch Bruce and his Maiden Men hitting up all capital cities on the touring circuit from May 1st in Perth, hitting up all capital cities on the touring circuit and wrapping up in Melbourne on May 11th.
Frontman Bruce Dickinson can’t wait to bring the guys back for their first show down under in four years, revealing:
“We’re immensely proud of this show and we’ve had great reactions from the many fans who came to see us in Europe, North America, Mexico and South America. The production for Australia is exactly the same as the other shows on this tour so far and is based on our mobile game THE LEGACY OF THE BEAST which basically takes various incarnations of Eddie into many different Maiden Worlds. This inspired us to put together a stage show to take our fans through different Worlds and experiences set to appropriate songs. It is not that easy designing different 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. 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! And of course, we have Eddie, as you’ve never seen him before, and absolutely loads of other surprises. I’ve had the time of my life playing with all these magnificent props on stage, it’s been fantastic, we can’t wait to bring this show to you!”
Killswitch Engage will finally get to debut songs from their latest album Atonement (our review here) live for their Aussie fans, so if you’re keen to show the oldies how we throw down, do not miss out on tickets!
