Tickets go on general sale next Friday, September 30, at 9am from

Maiden founder member and bass player Steve Harris said: “As it’s been so long since our last full UK arena tour, we really wanted to get to our fans in as many cities as possible. We’re really looking forward to it, especially visiting places we haven’t been to for a very long time, like Leeds where we haven’t played since 2005, and Liverpool, where we haven’t played since 1990.

"The whole band is really enjoying this tour and although we love playing festivals and stadiums, it is terrific to return to the intimacy and atmosphere of arenas.

"The songs from The Book Of Souls album and the new Maya-themed Eddies and stage sets have gone down really well and fan reaction has been amazing.

"And of course we know our fans appreciate us playing a lot of the older songs too, which we will continue to do.”

Special guests on all shows will be American arena headliners Shinedown. Zach Myers from the band said: "“Iron Maiden are the kings of metal and one of the greatest live bands of all time. It's an honour to be touring with them in Europe and in their home country and to play in front of their fans. We can't wait to see you in 2017!”

There will be an exclusive pre-sale for Iron Maiden Fan Club members, details of which can be found on along with information on how they can participate in the draw to be 'First To The Barrier'.

There's also a Trooper VIP upgrade on offer, available at £140 from, which doesn't include a concert ticket.
