Very few bands are as iconic as Iron Maiden. With a career spanning 40 years seeing them accumulate one of the largest international followings of any collective, Maiden are set to erupt onto stages globally in 2016 with The Book Of Souls World Tour.

With an extensive run of dates spanning across 35 countries on this tour, including first-ever visits to El Salvador and China. Iron Maiden are making their return in style on a 747-400 jumbo jet Ed Force One, piloted by vocalist Bruce Dickinson.

The Australian leg of the tour shrouded with unrivalled anticipation, welcomes Maiden’s first return since 2011, this only further fuelled with their tokened live ferocity, which is set to bring the ruckus to five Arenas nationally. The start of the global tour marking 19 months since their last show at Sonisphere.

Dickinson comments 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.
