Iron Maiden concert chronology

The Legacy of the Beast World Tour is an ongoing concert tour by British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, named after the comic and mobile game released by the band in 2017. Described as a "history/hits tour", Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood has revealed that the concerts and stage design will feature "a number of different but interlocking ‘worlds’ with a setlist covering a large selection of 80s material with a handful of surprises from later albums."[1]

The Legacy of the Beast Tour production and set list were inspired by Maiden's free-to-play mobile game of the same name is available on iOS and Android. The first leg, consisting of 38 European dates in 2018, was announced on 13 November 2017.[2] The tour was extended into 2019 with North and South American dates[1] and again into 2020 with Dates in Australia, New Zealand, Asia (Featuring their first ever show in The Philippines) and another run in Europe.

In March it was announced that the 2020 Oceania, Download Festival, and The Philippines shows were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In April 2020, it was announced that Japan, Copenhell festival in Copenhagen, Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium, the show in Wiener Neustadt, Austria, Germany, Paris, Tons of Rock, and Dubai were cancelled and next - postponed to 2021. In April 2021 it was announced that whole 2021 tour was cancelled once again and most of the European shows were rescheduled for 2022.[3] The band cancelled their concerts in Kyiv and Moscow due to the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine in order to "ensure the safety of their fans".[4]

Notes:

  • The Legacy of the Beast World Tour is the first to feature Blaze Bayley-era material in the band's setlist since the Dance of Death World Tour in 2004, with the inclusion of "Sign of the Cross" and "The Clansman".
  • "Flight of Icarus" returns to the setlist for the first time since the first leg of the Somewhere in Time tour, in 1986, meaning it is the first time the song has been played live since Janick Gers joined the group.
  • "Where Eagles Dare" and "For the Greater Good of God" also return, having last been played on the Eddie Rips Up the World Tour in 2005 and the A Matter of Life and Death tour in 2007, respectively.
  • Adrian Smith played his guitar solo in "Revelations" on the opening night in Tallinn, for the first time since World Slavery Tour (Janick Gers played his part since he rejoined in 1999). Gers took it over again on the second night in Helsinki, but Smith however, played the solo on the next gig. They change each concert (they have never used this pattern before).
  • This also marks the first time Iron Maiden uses two encores.
