Iron Maiden announced new 2023 tour dates for Europe, the new tour it’s called “The Future Past” and will be focused on the classic 1986 album “Somewhere In Time”. But the band will also perform songs from their latest record “Senjutsu” (2021) and other hits.
They will play in June and July in Poland, Switzerland, Ireland, Scotland, England, Belgium, Netherlands and Italy. But new dates can be announced soon.
The band’s founder and bassist Steve Harris talked about the tour in an official statement, saying: “Following the release of our latest album, Senjutsu, we updated the current Legacy of the Beast Tour a little by opening the show with the first 3 songs from it, with the Japanese Palace stage set. As it doesn’t make a lot of sense to repeat this for a Senjutsu album tour, we thought about other options and we’ve decided to revisit Somewhere In Time as that tour didn’t feature in the various retrospective history tours we’ve played over the years.”
“They were based on our 80’s concert videos and sadly we did not film that tour (blame the manager!!). We have had lots of requests from fans over the years for many tracks on it so we are now going to play them, 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!”
“2023 is going to be an exciting time and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone again in the UK, Ireland and around Europe”.
