MAIDEN FANS FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE BLOWN AWAY BY THE LEGACY OF THE BEAST SHOW: OPENING DATES PRONOUNCED A TRIUMPH

Live Nation is delighted to announce that every Nordic show is a complete sell out!

Global rock legends IRON MAIDEN’s new ‘Legacy Of The Beast’ Tour which opened in Nordic Europe last week is already being hailed by both media and fans alike as the most visually stunning Maiden show ever! With a set-list crammed with music across the band’s near and distant past - not just obvious hits but also fan favourites not played for many years - the first few shows have been received with nothing short of euphoria by Maiden fans. They descended on Tallinn, Estonia from every corner of the planet to be the first to witness the brand new live spectacle, then followed the band into Finland, Norway and the 40,000 capacity indoor stadium show in Stockholm, Sweden. The Nordic journey heads to Copenhagen this week, culminating with a headline performance at the Sweden Rock Festival in Solvesborg. Live Nation is delighted to announce that every Nordic show is a complete sell out and over 130,000 fans will have attended.

The Legacy Of The Beast Tour continues across Europe until early August, covering 34 cities in 24 countries with a series of shows and Festivals, many of which are already sold out..

Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood comments Even though we’re only five shows into the new tour, the reaction from the fans has been simply overwhelming! Just watching everyone’s collective jaw drop as the elaborate stage set gradually reveals itself, has been so rewarding. We pulled out all the stops to try and make this the most spectacular live Maiden tour production ever, and hope the fans agree that we just may have done that. It’s very gratifying to see the crowd’s reaction as the setlist weaves its way through the various interlocking worlds and themes we’d been teasing people with right from the very first look at the stained glass windows last year. We were inspired by the game and its interlocking worlds for this tour and we hope our fans, after the shows, will appreciate the cohesion when they return to the mobile game and see, for example, the Cathedral PVP arena or fight with Eddie and other characters.“

Here’s what the national news and UK music media have been saying about the show so far:

Tallinn, Estonia:

  • “The stage scenery and the rest of the show easily surpassed the expectations of the audience.. Iron Maiden knows how to get a concert going from the very first song. The spitfire plane hanging above the stage instantly drew everyone’s attention…and the concert hall could barely accommodate the number of Estonians who wanted to see Iron Maiden” Õhtuleht (The Evening Post – Estonia’s biggest daily paper)

Helsinki, Finland:

  • “The same never-ending energy that had the band buzzing at the top of the new wave of British heavy metal in the early 1980s, is still here…In today´s music scene, I cannot think of many other bands like Iron Maiden. The band can vary the sets on their tours almost endlessly from their 16 studio albums…As long as all this stays interesting to the band, we will hopefully all be able to enjoy shows like this for a long time. “ Helsingin Sanomat 28.5.2018
  • “For 40 years, Iron Maiden has been a front runner in their own genre and nothing suggests it's time to leave the stage for good. Iron Maiden is in top shape, offering an entertaining and well-played concert to an enthusiastic audience.” HBL 29.5.2018
  • “Seriously, this could be their finest set to date…from the set list, the performances and the thought put into this stage production we guarantee no Iron Maiden fan will walk away from the show without grinning like an absolute maniac” UK Kerrang! Magazine 28.5.2018
