IRON MAIDEN have announced their only Italian date for The Future Past Tour!
The band will perform pieces from the latest album Senjutsu along with tracks from the iconic 1986 album Somewhere In Time, as well as the great classics!
The Gods of Metal are back! IRON MAIDEN will bring a new tour to Europe in the summer of 2023: THE FUTURE PAST TOUR will feature songs never performed live from the latest album “Senjutsu” along with tracks from “Somewhere In Time”, the legendary 1986 album, as well as to the great classics.
IRON MAIDEN will be in Milan for the only Italian date on Saturday 15th July 2023: the band will be headlining The Return Of The Gods, a metal festival that will feature other leading international artists in the line-up to be announced shortly.
The band is currently in America in the final stages of the spectacular Legacy Of The Beast World Tour, which has been hiatus for two years due to Covid, with many concerts being rescheduled twice. The tour began in Tallin, Estonia in May 2018, the first of 139 concerts in 33 countries. By the end of the last show of the tour scheduled in Florida on October 27th, the band will have played in front of over 3 MILLION fans in total!
Following the release of our latest album, Senjutsu, we updated the current Legacy of the Beast Tour a little by opening the show with the first 3 songs from it, with the Japanese Palace stage set. As it doesn’t make a lot of sense to repeat this for a Senjutsu album tour, we thought about other options and we’ve decided to revisit Somewhere In Time as that tour didn’t feature in the various retrospective history tours we’ve played over the years. They were based on our 80’s concert videos and sadly we did not film that tour (blame the manager!!). We have had lots of requests from fans over the years for many tracks on it so we are now going to play them, plus of course a few others we know you will like! It will also be particularly satisfying to finally get to play some of the more epic tracks on Senjutsu, it’s been a long wait! 2023 is going to be an exciting time and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone again in the UK, Ireland and around EuropeSteve Harris
