DUE TO PHENOMENAL DEMAND
IRON MAIDEN ANNOUNCES ONE FINAL SHOW IN NEW YORK ON THEIR EPIC LEGACY OF THE BEAST TOUR -
BROOKLYN, BARCLAYS CENTER
SATURDAY, JULY 27TH
To satisfy fan demand, following a sold-out show in Brooklyn on Friday July 26, IRON MAIDEN have now confirmed a second night at Barclays Center on Saturday July 27 on their Legacy Of The Beast tour. Tickets go on sale Friday March 1st at 10am local time at LiveNation.com. This latest date completes the final tour routing for Maiden in North America and no further shows will be added. As always there will be an exclusive pre-sale for IRON MAIDEN fan club members.
The band’s triumphant first leg of the tour opened in Europe last year to outstanding critical acclaim, not just by over three quarters of a million fans who came to see the show but right across national press and rock media, including The Times (UK) newspaper calling it “..an extraordinary show filled with world class theatrics…a masterclass in performance and staging.”
Maiden’s 2019 North, South and Central America tour comprises 41 shows in six countries, which, combined with their 2018 European dates means that by the end of this tour, the band will have taken The Legacy Of The Beast show to over one and three quarters of a million fans around the globe.
Support on the 2019 tour comes from The Raven Age www.theravenage.com.
The Legacy Of The Beast Tour production and set list were inspired by Maiden’s free to play mobile game of the same name which is available on iOS and Android platforms at www.ironmaiden.com/play.Iron Maiden: Over the past 36 years, English heavy metal icons Iron Maiden have revolutionized the world of heavy metal. The band was at the forefront of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal in the 80s, and their tour dates complete with special effects and props have set the bar for live performances. Iron Maiden recently won their first Grammy for the song "El Dorado" off of their latest album, The Final Frontier. It's this album that has prompted the band to embark on 2011 tour dates around the world on The Final Frontier World Tour.
While Iron Maiden was formed in 1975 and experienced minor success with their first two albums, it wasn't until the hiring of Bruce Dickinson as lead singer and the release of Number of the Beast in 1982 that the group began to experience international acclaim. The album topped the charts in the UK and was well received by critics, despite the outcry from conservative groups in the US that labeled the band as "satanic."Powerslave experienced similar success in 1984 and led to tour dates on the World Slavery Tour, which remains one of the largest tours in music history.
Iron Maiden continued to release hit albums and perform acclaimed tours around the world, up through the 2010 release of The Final Frontier. It has sparked 2011 tour dates on a hugely popular world tour, which only has a hand full of performances left. The remaining dates on the concert schedule are focused in the UK and will end on August 6. Fans who have missed these tour dates can take comfort in the fact that Iron Maiden has no plans of quitting and will produce more hit albums and concerts soon.
