After last month announcing their intentions to embark on a massive world tour, rock icons Iron Maiden have today unveiled their Australian tour plans and will be making their massively anticipated return Down Under in May 2016.
Arriving aboard their enormous Boeing 747-400 jumbo jet Ed Force One, piloted by vocalist Bruce Dickinson and carrying band, crew and stage production and equipment, Iron Maiden will play five arena shows across the country starting in Brisbane and including stops in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
Iron Maiden last toured Australia in 2011, and their return visit will celebrate the release of their sixteenth studio album, The Book Of Souls, which landed in our laps on September 4th.
“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,” said Dickinson in a statement.
“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.”
