After opening in Ft. Lauderdale almost one year ago, Iron Maiden's Book of Souls tour will finally stop in Tampa. This morning, the UK heavy metal heroes announced a 25-date North American tour which includes an Amalie Arena date on June 11.
Tickets go on sale Saturday January 28 at 10 a.m. EST, and will cost $39.50-$99.50. A special Iron Maiden fan club presale happens on January 24.
Maiden founder and bassist Steve Harris said the band always planned to come back and hit the rest of the continent, but didn't have time. The 60-year-old Harris also said that they'll be bringing a full production to help Iron Maiden's 16th studio LP (also their first double album) come to life.
"All the Eddies and the Maya-themed stage sets," he said in a press release. "There’s been a great reaction from everyone to this tour’s theme, people really seem to love it. We’re still deciding on the final set-list and we’ll work that out once we get into rehearsals."
This sure makes up for that local Iron Maiden beer release we wished Harris & co. were at. Get more information on the show via local.cltampa.com. Watch a Book of Souls tour performance of "Death or Glory" below.
