Iron Maiden will return to North America in 2019 with their Legacy of the Beast Tour, which the heavy metal legends call their biggest production ever. The tour, which begins July 18th in Sunrise, Florida, is inspired by Iron Maiden’s Legacy of the Beast mobile game that finds their mascot Eddie exploring different Maiden Worlds.

“This inspired us to put together a stage show to take our fans through different Worlds and experiences set to appropriate songs,” singer Bruce Dickinson said in a statement. “It is not that easy designing different Worlds on stage and we put a huge amount of work into this to make it work and the end result we feel is our most spectacular and certainly the most complex show to date.”

Dickinson continued, “We’ve got all kinds of crazy things going on, including a replica Spitfire plane dominating the stage during ‘Aces High,’ tons of pyro, a giant Icarus, muskets, claymores and some truly marvelous flame-throwers which I have a hell of a lot of fun with, as you will see! And of course we have Eddie, as you’ve never seen him before, and absolutely loads of other surprises. I’ve had the time of my life playing with all these magnificent props on stage, it’s been fantastic, we can’t wait to bring this show to you!”

Bassist Steve Harris added that each show would feature “a very strong and well balanced set mixing songs we haven’t played in many years like ‘Flight Of Icarus,’ ‘Sign Of The Cross’ and ‘The Clansman’ with songs we know the fans want to hear like ‘The Trooper,’ ‘2 Minutes To Midnight,’ ‘The Number Of The Beast,’ ‘Fear Of The Dark,’ ‘Run To The Hills,’ ‘Hallowed Be Thy Name’ and others.”

The 33-city North American leg of the tour will also visit some U.S. cities for the first time in decades, including the the band’s first Portland, Oregon show since 1987 and their first Hartford, Connecticut gig since 2005.

Tickets for the Legacy of the Beast Tour go on sale beginning November 16th; check out the Iron Maiden site for complete ticket information.
