Rock legends IRON MAIDEN continue their hugely successful The Book of Souls World Tour into 2017 with a series of European arena shows opening in Antwerp, on 22nd April 2017.
Maiden founder member and bass player Steve Harris says,
“As it’s been so long since our last full UK arena tour, we really wanted to get to our fans in as many cities as possible. We’re really looking forward to it, especially visiting places we haven’t been to for a very long time like Leeds where we haven’t played since 2005 and Liverpool where we haven’t played since 1990. The whole band is really enjoying this tour and although we love playing festivals and stadiums, it is terrific to return to the intimacy and atmosphere of arenas. The songs from The Book Of Souls album and the new Maya-themed Eddies and stage sets have gone down really well and fan reaction has been amazing. And of course we know our fans appreciate us playing a lot of the older songs too, which we will continue to do.”

They are also putting out a digital only EP called Queens on 30th Sept. 30th and today they’ve shared its title track. “The song is about a leisurely stroll I took through East Hollywood at dusk one night,” guitarist Todd Wisenbaker explains. “To me, the song stands for being an important, passionate, loving person in your own life, every day,” Katy Goodman adds."
