The X Factour was a concert tour by the heavy metal band Iron Maiden which took place from 28 September 1995 to 7 September 1996. It was their first tour with vocalist Blaze Bayley, who debuted on The X Factor album.[1] The opening acts on varying dates of the tour included Psycho Motel,[2] Fear Factory and My Dying Bride.

The tour began with the band's first ever shows in Israel and Africa[3] before continuing in Europe and North America, where they played much smaller venues than they had with former vocalist Bruce Dickinson.[4] Unfortunately, Bayley suffered vocal issues during the band's North American tour as a result of the arduous schedule, which meant that several dates had to be cancelled.[5] The tour's closing dates in South and Central America included shows in much larger venues, such as the Monsters of Rock festival in São Paulo.[4]
