Iron Maiden Announce Concert Details in New Zealand

IRON MAIDEN ANNOUNCE CONCERT DETAILS IN NEW ZEALAND IN APRIL/MAY 2016 ON THE BOOK OF SOULS WORLD TOUR

THE NEW ALBUM “THE BOOK OF SOULS” DEBUTS AT N0.2 IN NZ, ALSO DEBUTING AT NO.1 IN THE UK AND MANY OTHER COUNTRIES

MAIDEN, CREW AND EQUIPMENT TO ARRIVE ON ED FORCE ONE, A BOEING 747-400 JUMBO JET PILOTED BY VOCALIST BRUCE DICKINSON

Rock legends IRON MAIDEN, whose new studio double album The Book of Souls debuted this week at No 2 in New Zealand will make a massively anticipated return to Australasia at the end of April on their enormous Boeing 747-400 jumbo jet Ed Force One, piloted by vocalist Bruce Dickinson and carrying band, crew and stage production and equipment.

Returning after seven years Maiden will play 2 shows in NZ, April 29 in Christchurch at the Horncastle Arena followed by May 1 at the Vector Arena in Auckland.

Maiden will then fly to Australia, where they haven’t played since 2011, to perform five shows there.

Bruce comments;

“We cannot wait to get back out on tour. When we start in the USA in late February it will be 19 months since our last show at Sonisphere in the UK so we are raring to go. Maiden thrive on touring and getting out to our fans, it’s what we do best, so it will be a great feeling to board our new Jumbo Ed Force One with the crew and the gear and head round the globe and get back on stage for you guys. We haven’t played in Australia and New Zealand for a number of years so it will be a pleasure to play for our Antipodean cousins again, irrespective of who wins the dates with destiny at Twickenham in a few weeks’ time!!

“Of course we haven't decided on the set list as yet and won’t until we start rehearsing but we really look forward to playing a number of new songs live, especially as the recording was so much live. However, as it’s been a while since we saw you all, I am sure we will include plenty of older fan favourites too. I think the fans will be delighted by what we have in mind. We are also in the middle of creating the new show and rest assured we are working hard to bring you all something spectacular, something with a lot of heart!!! You certainly deserve it for your patience.“

The support band on The Book Of Souls Tour will be The Raven Age - theravenage.org
