Iron Maiden have been forced to cancel their summer 2021 tour due to the pandemic, announcing a new 2022 tour today. An Iron Maiden Reunion With ‘Three Singers’ Is Coming?
* The German Stuttgart 2022 show will now take place at the Cannstatter Wasen, not the Mercedes-Benz Arena, which is not available due to stadium reconstruction works. Tickets remain valid and ticket-holders will be notified by the local promoter/ticketing agency in due course.
* The Swiss show has reverted to Zurich Hallenstadion as was originally planned for 2020, as this venue is now available again for 2022. Therefore, there will be no rescheduled show for Basel St Jakobshalle (which never went on sale this year).
* Zurich along with Frankfurt, Arnhem and Belsonic will go on sale imminently
The postponement of the “Legacy Of The Beast” tour does, however, bring the great news that Maiden can now return to headlining the huge European festival dates originally planned for 2020 which were pushed back due to the pandemic. The dates include Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium, so now the Maiden show date in Antwerp will be canceled. Iron Maiden is in the process of finalizing a further couple of headlining shows in other European territories and will update fans about those as soon as they are confirmed.
Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood said: “Naturally, the band are hugely disappointed — a second summer without touring, especially with this very special ‘Legacy’ show, is very hard to take. They send their best wishes to you all, knowing full well you fans will feel the same. As we all know, realistically there is no alternative, so we will all make the best of it and spend the time preparing for a very memorable and even more spectacular ‘Legacy’ tour next year, we promise! Until then, keep safe and keep smart.”
