Iron Maiden’s Summer Assault

12:01 PM Wednesday 2/15/12 | |

Iron Maiden unleashes its three-month summer plan for North America, featuring special guests Alice Cooper on several dates, Coheed And Cambria on others.

    (John McMurtrie)


If you liked Iron Maiden’s 1988 outing you’ll love 2012’s “Maiden England World Tour.” The band says the upcoming adventure will “closely mirror, in terms of production and content,” the band’s concert video shot on the “Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son Tour.”

The band calls the “Maiden England World Tour” the third chapter in “The History Of Iron Maiden.” Chapter one began in 2004 with the release of “The Early Days” DVD followed by the 2005 tour of the same name. Chapter two began in 2008 with the “Live After Death” DVD release and the “Somewhere Back In Time World Tour.”

“Our intention is to play about two thirds of the original track list of ‘Maiden England,’ including songs we have not played live in a very, very long time, plus other favorites we just know the fans are going to want to hear,” vocalist Bruce Dickinson said. “We always try to give our fans a great show musically, but we have always tried to make it as entertaining and memorable an experience as we can visually. And we all feel this show is going to do that splendidly! We can’t wait to get started in Charlotte.”

Dickinson, a licensed airline pilot, will fly the band into Charlotte, N.C., for the tour opener at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre June 21. Other stops include Mansfield, Mass., at the Comcast Center June 26; Tinley Park, Ill. (Chicago), at First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre July 5; Toronto’s Molson Canadian Amphitheatre July 13; Clarkston, Mich. (Detroit) at DTE Music Theatre July 18; Calgary, Alberta, at Scotiabank Saddledome July 26; Auburn., Wash., at White River Amphitheatre July 30; Denver at the Comfort Dental Amphitheatre Aug. 13 and The Woodlands, Texas, at The Cynthia Mitchell Woods Pavilion Aug. 18.

Expect more dates to be announced. Special guest Alice Cooper appears June 21 through July 21; Coheed And Cambria after July 21 through the end of the tour.

Many venues will launch onsales March 2 and 3. In an effort to thwart scalpers, Iron Maiden is using paperless tickets whenever possible, if not for the entire venue, at least for the front sections. Ticket presales will be offered through the band’s fan club. Check out IronMaiden.com for more info.

    Yea,the '90's till 2008 drought was what I was referring to.I did'nt move here till 1995.

     @ neutralmilk

    I had no idea paperless were'nt refundable.Unbelievable.Ticketbastard seems to be at it once again.That does suck that you can't honestly resell to someone at face value though it does stop alot of scalpers.I just wish they would do massive arrests of these sites that scalp plus arrest Ticketmaster,Live Nation and alot of bands that scam their fans.Oh yeah.A thief is a thief.

    Why not make the paperless tickets refundable?

    In the Old Days, they always came to FLA, I saw the 7th Son Tour in Daytona Beach. And they came to Sunrise on the Somewhere Back in Time Tour and Final Frontier in Tampa too. Now, they did skip FLA  from 1990's until 2008.

    Paperless is okay when its a $20 ticket. But when some of the tours are $250 a ticket, it is eating an helluva lot of cash if you get sick/work/family matters prevent you going.

    Besides paperless/non transferable tickets aren't legal in several states. Other states have laws that allow transfer.

    Paperless?  And if an emergency arises, you get to eat the tix since you can't sell em!  Enjoy fans!

    Rats,no Florida dates just like the old days!  Nicko might have to catch his own plane home.

     Nice to see them do paperless again.I got  great  seats last time Maiden did it.

    A shame RHCP did'nt do that cause scalpers screwed their fans royal on the current tour. I was there the second tickets went on sale and the very back of the arena was the best I could get.I said to heck with it and decided not to buy them or attend.Tons of sites were immediately selling loads of tickets to every date on the U.S. leg.What a disgrace.
