Iron Maiden announced gigs in Calgary, AB; Edmonton, AB; and Vancouver, BC late September, early October as part of their Future Past Tour. This recent announcement follows hot on the heels of Maiden’s headline performance Power Trip Festival in Coachella on October 6 alongside Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, and Tool.
Founding member and bassist Steve Harris states:
“We have had lots of requests from fans over the years to play live a number of tracks on ‘Somewhere In Time,’ and now is the time, plus of course a few others we know you will like! It will also be particularly satisfying to finally get to play some of the more epic tracks on Senjutsu. It’s been a long wait!”
Manager Rod Smallwood adds:
“As a prelude to our appearance at the Power Trip Festival in Indio, CA in October, we’re delighted to bring our Future Past shows to our fans in Western Canada. It’s been quite a few years since we were last there and audiences are always terrific. We look forward to seeing you all again. The European leg starts very soon and personally I can’t wait to finally hear a lot more of ‘Senjutsu’ and delve deeper into ‘Somewhere in Time!’”
Exclusive presales begin with the Iron Maiden Fan Club on Tuesday, April 25. General on-sale commences on April 28. Most of the shows on the European and UK leg of “The Future Past Tour” are already sold out. Look for the set to feature songs not previously performed from the band’s most recent studio album, Senjutsu, along with a strong focus on 1986’s Somewhere In Time record, and other classic cuts too.
