Iron Maiden returns to North America with “The Legacy of the Beast World Tour” in 2022, extending the outing that closed in September 2019 and adding many cities the band has not played in years.

When it was originally announced in 2018,  “The Legacy of the Beast World Tour” was advertised as “their biggest production ever” and sold out 35 arena dates across North America for an average of 13,494 tickets sold per show for a $1,022,133 gross.

The 2022 leg, produced by Live Nation, promises even more of the same spectacular showmanship from the British heavy metal masters, with a decades-spanning setlist of fan favorites. 

Arena and amphitheater stops begin with the Sept. 11 kickoff at Don Haskins Arena in El Paso, Texas, and include Tulsa, Okla.; Denver; Salt Lake City; Anaheim, Calif.; Concord, Calif.; Seattle, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto Belmont Park, N.Y.; Washington, D.C.; and Tampa, Fla., where the leg winds down Oct. 26.

Trivium will be Iron Maidens special guest on all dates between El Paso and Spokane, Wash.; after which Within Temptation joins the tour through the leg’s conclusion.

Registration for first access to tickets is open now HERE via Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform and will run through 10 p.m. EST Dec. 5. Verified Fan presale begins Wednesday, Dec. 8th at 10 a.m. local time. As always there will be an exclusive pre-sale for Iron Maiden fan club members beginning Tuesday, Dec. 7 at 10 a.m. loca timel. All presales end Thursday, Dec. 9 at 10 p.m. local time. Any remaining tickets will go on sale on December 10th at 10am local time.


“We decided to take it back to our fans in North America, but in cities or venues we didn’t play in 2019, including some we haven’t visited in many years like El Paso, Spokane, Sioux Falls, Columbus, Hamilton, Ottawa and Greensboro,” says Iron Maiden manager Rod Smallwood.


“We’ll be making a couple of additions and changes to the production and setlist to include some songs from our new album Senjutsu and are making the 2022 version of ‘Legacy Of The Beast’ even more spectacular than the acclaimed original show. You can be sure that we will still be featuring all the “hits” and the key elements of the original tour like the Spitfire, Icarus, Hell, flamethrowers and pyro and the rest – but we will shake it up a bit and Trooper Eddie will have serious competition in the new Senjutsu ‘world’ we are adding.”


Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson adds, “We’re really looking forward to our return to North America so we can bring The Legacy Of The Beast show to places we didn’t get to in 2019 and to other cities we’ve not played for many years. I’m really excited about the new additions and changes to the stage production and we can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve got planned. The whole band has really enjoyed the Legacy Tour and now we just can’t wait get back out on the road to play live, have fun and see everyone again!” 


“The Legacy Of The Beast Tour” production and set list is inspired by Maiden’s award-winning free to play mobile game of the same name which is available on iOS and Android platforms at


A Trooper VIP Hospitality upgrade package is currently being planned and details will be announced closer to the tour dates for any fans who might want to enjoy additional at-show benefits.
