Iron Maiden was formed by Steve Harris, the bassist and main songwriter of the group, back in 1975 and since then had become one of the most succesful bands of all time with an estimated amount of more than 130 million records worldwide.
Even with all the shows and albums done with Maiden, Harris still wanted to do more and formed another group called British Lion in 2012. Since then they have released two albums “British Lion” (2012) and “The Burning” (2020). The group already toured in 2023 and will continue on the road in 2024.
The band’s current line-up has: Steve Harris (Bass), Richard Taylor (Vocals), David Hawkins (Guitar, keyboards), Grahame Leslie (Guitar) and Simon Dawson (Drums).
“We’re all excited to announce an extensive tour of the U.K. in January, kicking off with a special warm up show at the Cart & Horses in London. Tony Moore’s Awake (one-man show) will be our very special guest for the tour.”
“Tony was, of course, in IRON MAIDEN back in 1977 so it is great to have him on the bill. 2024 will also see us make our third appearance on the Monsters Of Rock cruise in March. We can’t wait to see you all out on the road!” Steve Harris said.
Iron Maiden has no show scheduled for 2024 yet but still will perform four times in 2023. The shows will happen in Canada and in the United States.
