Iron Maiden’s fall 2022 North American tour has the band performing in many cities they haven’t visited in decades

Bruce Dickinson and Iron Maiden will make their way to North America next year, as the band has announced a lengthy roster of fall 2022 tour dates. The new round of stops has the legendary metal group hitting cities they haven’t been to for years, making this an even hotter ticket for Maiden fans.

The tour, dubbed the “Legacy of the Beast” tour, will feature the band performing new songs off their latest studio album, “Senjutsu,” as well as material spanning their career. “Senjutsu” was released in September of this year and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart in the U.S., marking the band’s highest showing ever.

“Next summer we will finally get to play the huge European stadium tour for The Legacy Of The Beast,” Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood said in a statement, “and the new show will be even more spectacular so after our visit to Rock in Rio early September 2022 we decided to take it back to our fans in North America too, but in cities or venues we didn’t play in 2019, including some we haven’t visited in many years like El Paso, Spokane, Sioux Falls, Columbus, Hamilton, Ottawa and Greensboro.”

He continued, “We’ll be making a couple of additions and changes to the production and setlist to include some songs from our new album Senjutsu and are making the 2022 version of Legacy of the Beast even more spectacular than the acclaimed original show.” Smallwood also said the band “will be featuring all the ‘hits’ and the key elements of the original tour like the Spitfire, Icarus, Hell, flamethrowers and pyro and the rest – but we will shake it up a bit and Trooper Eddie will have serious competition in the new ‘Senjutsu’ ‘world’ we are adding.”

Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson says he’s thrill to be returning to the states, commenting, “We’re really looking forward to our return to North America so we can bring ‘The Legacy of the Beast’ show to places we didn’t get to in 2019 and to other cities we’ve not played for many years. I’m really excited about the new additions and changes to the stage production and we can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve got planned. The whole band has really enjoyed the Legacy Tour and now we just can’t wait get back out on the road to play live, have fun and see everyone again!”

For support, Iron Maiden has tapped modern metal band Trivium to open on all shows between the Sept. 11 El Paso tour opener and Spokane show on Sept. 30. Following the latter gig, Within Temptation will open for the rest of the October dates. View the full roster of Iron Maiden 2022 tour dates below.
