The concept for the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour was inspired by Maiden’s mobile game and comic book of the same name and the stage set design will feature a number of different but interlocking world” with a set list covering a large selection of Eighties material with a handful of surprises from later albums to add diversity.

Formed in 1975, the band have released a whopping 38 albums - including 16 studio albums, 11 live albums, four E.Ps and seven compilations.

After several line-up changes, the band went on to release a series of UK and US platinum and gold albums, including 1982's The Number of the Beast, 1983's Piece of Mind, 1984's Powerslave, 1985's live release Live After Death, 1986's Somewhere in Time and 1988's Seventh Son of a Seventh Son.

Killswitch Engage will be joining the band as support for their tour.
