In video Nicko McBrain explains Iron Maiden new tour setlist

In a funny video, drummer Nicko McBrain explained a bit of Iron Maiden’s repertoire on the next leg of their tour, “Legacy of the Beast.” The tour has dates marked in Brazil and South America, as well as North and Central America.


In the filming, Nicko McBrain talks about the songs “Aces High” and “Where Eagles Dare”, presences confirmed in the repertoire of the second part of the tour. It seems that the setlist of the first stage, in Europe, should be quite preserved for the new shows.

“There are a lot of songs on this tour that we have not played in a long time, there are songs we play on the whole tour so stop whining because that’s what’s happening!” McBrain said in a video.

The Legacy Of The Beast

“Flight Of Icarus,” which was not played at Iron Maiden shows since 1986, has returned to the band’s repertoire. Other “rarities” in the setlist include “Sign Of The Cross” (out since 2001), “The Wicker Man” (absent since 2011), “Where Eagles Dare”, “The Clansman” since 2003) and “For The Greater Good Of God” (far from the shows since 2007).

The “rescue” also covered songs that have been on several Iron Maiden tour dates, but have been cut off from more recent tours such as “2 Minutes To Midnight,” “Revelations,” and “The Evil That Men Do.”

Before the beginning of “Legacy Of The Beast”, the three were last played on the Maiden England World Tour, which ended in July 2014, and did not enter the set of “The Book Of Souls World Tour” between 2016 and 2017.
