Bruce is coming for you!
Iron Maiden today announced a fuck-ton of shows they’ve booked as part of their North American summer tour.

The trek opens in Charlotte, North Carolina, on June 21 and finishing in Houston, Texas, on August 18, and you can find all of the dates at the end of this post.

The “Maiden England World Tour” will closely mirror — in terms of production and content — the original 1988 concert video of the same name, shot on the “Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son Tour.”

Alice Cooper will open on some dates of the tour, with Coheed and Cambria handling the duties for the rest of the trek.

“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,” says frontman Bruce Dickinson.

“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’ revisited — with many other surprises! Our intention is to play about two thirds of the original track list of ‘Maiden England,’ including some 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! 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.”
