British metal legends Iron Maiden are coming back to North America this summer, and this time it promises to be another trip down memory lane. http://IRONMAIDEN.jonesbeach.com
Following its 2005 “Early Days” tour and 2008-09 “Somewhere Back In Time” tour, the band will be emulating its classic Maiden England concert video released in 1988, shot suring the “Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son” tour. This is the third concert chapter in the History of Maiden tour series. “We have great fun playing the History of Maiden tours because it gives us an opportunity between new albums to go out and play songs from our earlier catalogue,” singer Bruce Dickinson said in a statement. “It’s always fantastic seeing the crowd reaction from a new generation of fans who have never experienced some of these tracks performed live before, and of course we know our longstanding fans will enjoy seeing the original ‘Seventh Son’ tour re-visited.” Dickinson added the plan was for Maiden to play about two thirds of the track listing from Maiden England, as well as other forgotten favourites.
